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.

Yes I will follow you! You know what? I had some shoes almost identical to those in 1972 for my roommates wedding. They divorced after 4 kids and 25 years. I wish I still had those shoes! hahahaha.

I love boyfriend jeans! Besides big ass bell bottoms, boyfriend jeans are my absolute favorite. They are so comfy and once you find the perfect pair, they become your go to jean. :) Love them with the floral and heels. <3

The boyfriend jeans are so cute on you! I haven't gotten myself a pair yet...I'm scared they might look too baggy on my petite frame. You got so much good loot at Plato's Closet. I always hear bloggers raving about it but I don't think there's one near me :(

I laughed out loud when reading "fat jeans isn't marketable"
This outfit is perfect; I think those shoes were made for those jeans. Love your blog.
