Giving Full-Length Jeans A Go: Mother Rider Skimp Review


Hey, friends! I’m attempting the full-length jeans thing again and may have found a pair I love! I’m trying these High Waisted Rider Skimp jeans, which are straight leg and full length (on my 5’4″ frame) but not baggy, and from our fav flattering jean brand, MOTHER. This pair is like the beloved Tomcats, but longer. In this video, I’m trying our the high-waisted Rider Skimp jeans out with four different favorite pairs of shoes to see how I’d actually wear them…

I’m wearing a Size 28, as I typically do in MOTHER Denim. These break-in well with wear, but size up if you want a little bit comfier fit and note also that they are really high rise.

My exact jeans are selling quickly, as all MOTHER denim seems to do, but there are some other great washes, too, like this one. I’ve also linked a few more below.

Have you tried out a full-length pair of jeans recently? I went to put them on yesterday and tried my Converse with them, and it was a retro vibe I love. I’ll get something on social soon with that combo!



Would love to have you join me over on my IG @laurajansenstyle where daily musings, donut pics and random thoughts on motherhood meet more fashion, kitchen dance parties and important social justice issues…all from our Portland, Oregon home we love. xo


  1. I am so trying to get my eye to adjust and try a ride on the train, too! I haven’t found anything yet. I’m sure I will be grinning ear to ear when I find a pair (and of course that will be when they aren’t on trend anymore haha). These look great on you. And your daughter is super sweet. I would have to press pause if my kids came in while filming something😂.

    • It’s been a total experiment to try but I even shot more looks in these yesterday! I hope you find some you love! I’ll keep an eye out for more jean pairs, too. Haha thank you she loves to be center of attention but she’s pretty sweet about it.

  2. Laura, what if you rolled them with the Vans? I think that is why it looks better with the sandals and the heels because there is one bunching at the bottom. Loved seeing Sienna at the end. I have a 8 year old
    daughter too. Love seeing you too together!❤️

    • I’ve tried that and it’s just…ok. Too much cuff I think. But I’m kinda digging the long look! But great suggestion! Great minds… 🙂
