I’ve loved the boyfriend jeans look for awhile now but never found the right pair of jeans. My problem was that I was always looking for jeans labeled “boyfriend jeans”. Those jeans always ended up looking several sizes too big and a bit sloppy on my petite frame. Finally, a bell went off in my head. Why not just size up on normal jeans? And so I did.
Express has some amazing distressed jeans and I really loved the natural worn-in look. Their jeans can be kind of hit or miss (they run a little big on me) but I figured since I’m going for a slouchier, slightly baggy look, it would probably be ok. I chose these “skinny” jeans in their ankle length and it ended up working out just like I wanted! Not too baggy but just baggy enough. And the ankle length ended up as full-length on my short legs, so it was perfect for me to roll up without being too bulky. I’m so glad to have finally found my version of a boyfriend jean!
This weekend has been glorious. It’s been lots of downtime filled with time spent at the park, evening walks with Dylan in his buggy, and catching up with old friends over brunch (Sfuzzi’s has a great spinach salad!). I’m watching both my boys take an afternoon nap right now and it’s hard not to realize this is the good stuff in life. I’m so lucky to be here.
Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
