I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  A few of our friends were in town for a comedy show.  The show was great and afterward we made moscow mules, had a fire, and stayed up late (later than this old gal has been up in a long time).  It was pretty perfect, and so nice to catch up with friends.

I couldn't come up with a clever way to transition into today's topic... boyfriend jeans.  So, that was my non-transition transition.  The first time they were a "big" thing (about 4 years ago?) I snatched up a cheap pair at forever 21, and I wore them all the time.  Gradually they sort of made their way to the bottom of my jean stack.  Recently boyfriend jeans are having a resurgence - and that is just fine with me.  I love the laid back, undone look they add to any outfit.  I just need to update my old pair, so I'm on the hunt.

The newest style I have seen is a bit more straight leg and cropped (the two images below).  I suppose you might not even call them "boyfriend jeans".  Either way, I really like them.  They're a bit more classic, and feel fresh and new.

Below are a few options I've come across in my search for a new pair.  And I use the word "options" loosely because some of these are too pricey to actually be options.  I really am liking the more straight, less baggy, cropped without having to be rolled style.  I also like it when they are at least a bit distressed.  

What do you think?  Did you jump on board with this trend the first time around?  Are you now?

  1. It's always skinny, skinny, skinny here in San Francisco so this post was a breathe of fresh air! It even inspired me to put on my boyfriend jeans today (Nudies bought eons ago). Boyfriend jeans are so comfy I don't know why they sit in the back of my closet - although I should have them hemmed because I'm sporting a pretty thick roll right now just to get them above my ankle boot!

    1. Thank you so much for the sweet comment, Brenda! :) SO glad it inspired you to dig them out! And I totally understand what you mean by the thick roll! haha! That's how my old pair are, too!
