Boyfriend Jeans + Cashmere = weekend comfort outfit!


Boyfriend jeans have been a trend for a while now.  I’ve tried a few pairs…  They are incredibly comfortable, but I’m not a big fan of the longer rise that usually comes with them, and how they make my butt look (c’mon, that’s HUGE in jeans decisions :)).  So…now I cheat and just buy up a couple of sizes on a normal pair.  This is especially great when I go thrift shopping and find pairs not in my size=boyfriend jeans!  That was the case with the pair I’m wearing here.  This particular pair was hemmed already and about an inch too short.  Was I deterred from scooping up a pair of Seven for All Mankind for less than $10?  NO!  Roll them, I say 😉

Ps-it’s been raining CONSTANTLY in Seattle, so…inside pick for this one.  I’ll try and get more creative later.blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-1When you go the “boyfriend” style route, it’s best to pair it with a tighter fitting top.  That way you don’t look too frumpy (NOBODY WANTS THAT!)  This sweater isn’t too tight, but it’s more fitted. blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-2 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-3 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-4cThen I dug this leather jacket out of the trenches.  I have had this particular jacket for over 10 years!  I’m such a hoarder… BUT, I find that things always come back around, and I’m SO glad I never got rid of it! blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-5 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-8 blog Yellow StyleMint Cashmere 7 Boyfriend Cafe Noir-9And Maya’s take on the rolled too big jeans 🙂1Maya85wksRainPony-2cOn me…

Super Mom Tip-
Thrift store shop for premium denim (great deals are out there if you look!).  Both Value Village and Goodwill have carts that you can put your child in while you shop (hands free shopping!)  Plus, a lot of times you will find jeans already hemmed perfectly (if you have shorter legs).  If you find a pair that are too short…roll them!dit-elle-Lauren
