Not Your Boyfriend's Jeans


It's pretty safe to say that I've been on the hunt for a great pair of boyfriend jeans for the past six months. I've tried on pair after pair and literally they ALL made me look like I was actually wearing my boyfriend's jeans (cough cough, sorry Chris if you are reading this!). They were too big, didn't fit in the waist, or just made me look really frumpy. Not attractive! But all of that changed this past weekend when I came across this pair of destroyed boyfriend jeans at Nordstrom. My dream had come true… finally, a pair of jeans that fit perfectly in the waist, looser in the legs and are perfectly distressed! Hallelujah! I also love how they look when paired with this embellished sweater. The pop of orange is even brighter in person.

If you are petite or narrow in the waist, I would definitely recommend these jeans. And they are less than $100! I linked up some more affordable options below.

P.S. Thank you to my roommate Allison for coming up with the title for this post!! ;)

  5. You are going to want to wear these everyday! I seriously live in my boyfriend jeans - so much so that my boyfriend actually asked me if I had any other jeans to wear out (whoops!).

  6. I struggle with boyfriend jeans for probably the opposite reason: I have curvy hips and a round butt! I always felt like, on me, they looked like "fat pants" more than anything.

    I finally found a pair at express that I like, they fit my waist, butt and hips without adding extra width to me!

    Now I struggle with styling them, but I love what you've done here! That sweater is adorable, I really love this outfit.
