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?
