Fall is officially here. If you’re anything like me, you’ve already started to plan your wardrobe for the colder months of ahead, which of course includes a new pair of boots, maybe a few more more cozy sweaters, and the denim staples you can’t live without.

Well, good news for you! You can finally justify purchasing those pair of jeans you’ve been eyeing since they hit the shelves. Both Madewell and J.Crew are offering $20 off a full-priced pair of denim if you bring in an old pair of jeans through the end of September. Even better, both retailers will donate your used jeans to Blue Jeans Go Green charity, which recycles old denim into housing insulation for those in need.

I recently purchased the High Riser Skinny Skinny style from Madewell, and find them to be incredibly flattering. They make your legs look supermodel long. I also am loving the Rip and Repair edition, a distressed style that can be paired with a sleek pair of heels for an edgier look. Both retailers have styles that flatter every body type and I guarantee once you purchase a pair, you won’t want to take them off.

So go ahead and treat yourself knowing that feeding into your shopping addiction is helping others in return. You only have a few days left to donate and autumn has just begun. Learn more about Blue Jeans Go Green at http://www.bluejeansgogreen.org
