blog, meet boyfriend.

JEANS, that is. tricky, I know!

boyfriend jeans have become one of those clothing unicorns of the blogging world (let's see, along with the perfect leopard print scarf...well anything, really, blazers, statement necklaces, chambray) and it has been equally hard for me to find a pair that works for me.

my legs are super short, and also, "strong" or whatever, so the jeans needed to be the appropriate length and actually NOT tight around my thighs. nearly. impossibly. until, this fateful day! when I went shopping in March I found these at the Gap factory store.

oh- rabbit trail- here's my shopping update for the month: I spent it all on stuff for my room. I think I'm ok with that. also, I'm not in desperate need of any clothing or anything. I have a running list, as always, but I think I'm good for now. anyway,

Gap is one of those places I think I consistently shop forever. they make great quality jeans, also, you can often find them on a decent sale/clearance/at a factory store. I think I got these for like $30, and I would buy them again!

so enough about my dreamy boyfriend [jeans] blah blah blah, I love them. I understand the hype. I have to wear them with heels/wedges to avoid looking frumpy, but they are SO dang comfortable. I love a good pair of skinny jeans, but they aren't necessarily comfy.

don't have much else to say about this outfit! it's pretty simple, really, but it's one of the outfits I initially put together to try on my new jeans. also, pro tip: it is really dang easy to find cheap statement necklaces from China online. I think I got this one when I was ordering protein powder for Hunter for Valentine's Day. this qualified my package for free shipping #duh.

oh, I wore this to church a couple Sunday's ago, which is where Hunter took these pictures for me. the church we've been going to is in THE cutest older building. also, top five most awk places to take outfit pictures, like, right after the service let's out. I just want to scream "this is NOT the REASON I came here TODAY!" so there's that.

and here's my good news of the day: I won a giveaway! to ASOS thanks to Katherine at of corgis & cocktails. uh, YAY! commence panic mode where I'm like sssooo mannnyy pretty dresses.

i have a pair of boyfriend jeans from gap's outlet store too! i looked for what seemed like an eternity and then the day i found them, i refused to leave without them. i actually found my utility jacket at the same time! i must have saved up some serious shopping karma.

so jealous about your ASOS giveaway win! congrats though--winning giveaways is almost as hard as finding the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans.

First off, congrats on winning the giveaway! I can't wait to see what you pick out.

I have yet to get behind boyfriend jeans. I think it's probably due to the fact that you have to wear heels with them and most days, I don't feel like walking in them! Haha I love those heels by the way!

So ignoring the fact that it's been WAY too long since I've commented, can we just talk about how seriously amazing you look in these jeans? Like, they were made for you. You need to wear them all the time. Also, that necklace. *Swoon*

Congrats on winning that giveaway! I'm jealous, but I hope you get something awesome. And I hope you've been doing well!

I agree about Gap. I'm so happy the outlet finally opened by me. I've bought 3 pairs of jeans there in the last few months. They just fit better than the normal gap jeans!

I have the same problem with short, "strong" legs :) These look great on you though!

I have yet to find good boyfriend jeans. Also, I think we have the same nude heels! They look great with this outfit.

Alissa said...

Boyfriend jeans are the BESSTT! I love throwing them on during my lazy days and they make you look so good!

Jessica @ Here&Now said...

Okay so these jeans do look great on you ( and I like how you can talk so knowledgeably about jeans. They all look alike to me on the shelf!)
