Bringing Back The Boyfriend Jeans


I remember years ago when I got my first ever pair of boyfriend jeans and had absolutely no idea how to wear them.  Initially I was like, "Boyfriend Jeans?  These are not very flattering."  The more I played around with them though, I started to come up with better ways to style them.  Now, they are such a staple piece for me, especially during the spring.  I honestly prefer these over skinny jeans any day! 


Outfit Details 


Sweater: Target (similar) / Jeans: H&M (similar) / Shoes: BooHoo 
 Bag: French Connection (similar style) / Ear Crawler: Betsey Johnson 
Rings: Edge Of Ember, Satya

When the temps went up a little bit last week, I just couldn't resist bringing these jeans back out.  My favorite thing about them is their loose & comfortable fit.  They just give off this effortless vibe.  So many things pair well with them too, so this time I went with one of my favorite sweaters.  I've definitely worn this sweater a ton of times over the last few months.  I kept this look super simple with black pumps and of course, that black cross body bag again. :)

I also brought the bun back out!  Well this time, the messy bun. #ILikeBigBunsAndICannotLie
  I think this might be my new hairstyle for the warmer months.  I actually prefer it over the sock bun.  I posted a photo of it on instagram and got some questions about how I did it.  If I can create a photo tutorial for this I will, but let me try to briefly explain the steps.  It's best to do this the day after you curl your hair.  Tie your hair up in a messy way.  The more hair sticking out the better.  Then you just start to shape the bun by pinning your hair into place.  Doing it this way gives you full control over how you want it to look.  It honestly took me several tries to get it just right.  You can also try to just pin it all up without using the rubber band, but this is a little more difficult.  I hope that made sense! I think sometimes I do my hair without even realizing how I did it. lol 

Happy Tuesday!

  3. I just pulled my boyfriend jeans from the bottom of my denim shelf. I have also been loving the girlfriend jeans which are a little more flattering than the boyfriend jeans but still comfy.
