boyfriend jeans & more floral

Wednesday, September 5, 2012

I don't know why they call these "boyfriend jeans" perhaps it's because "fat jeans" wasn't as marketable :D But, no matter what you call them, I am loving this relaxed fit denim trend! I have been searching for a pair of baggy jeans, but I kept finding jeans that were too tight, or way too loose. I finally stumbled upon these babies a couple weeks ago at a Plato's Closet.

I was on my way back to LA from my hometown and stopped in Bakersfield for fuel and a little retail therapy. If you are ever in Bakersfield, you should definitely stop at the Plato's Closet on Ming Ave. I found a brand new F21 leather jacket, These Gap Jeans, 2 bangles, and a wallet for under $40! I am a huge fan of Plato's Closet, I always used to shop there when I liven in Chi, but LA doesn't have any. My point... if you live near a Plato's Closet you should check it out!! You can also consign your clothing if it's in good condition. It's a great way to make some extra cash!

Back to my outfit.... I love these jeans because they are so comfortable! I love that you can wear them with a pair of TOMS or, a pair of heels like I have here. I also had a little moment of clarity and realized how much floral I wear! I never considered myself a flowery type of gal, but in the last year and a half, I've worn a floral print at least 9 times.
