The last word that I would use to describe my personal style is the word "trendy." Sure I follow trends, and sometime accept them into my wardrobe, but generally I buy what I like and what looks good on me and if it happens to be "on trend" that is usually just an added bonus.
One trend I swore up and down that I would never ever, ever, ever (EVER) follow is the boyfriend jean. I know this style hit its peak this summer and pretty much every celebrity was seen wearing it. I could often be quoted as saying "why on earth would these girls want to wear something that just makes them look bigger, seriously am I missing something?" I thought it looked sloppy and less than fashionable. I kneel at the alter of the skinny jean, so for me this was a total style miss.
Fast forward 6 months and I take it ALL back. All of it. Every single word. Why? Because over the holiday season I bought my first pair of "boyfriend jeans" and just like with my first boyfriend, I am head over heels in love. Llllluuuuurrrrvvvveeee.
Why the switch? The truth is once I tried them on, I can't be paid to take them off. Ignoring the comfort factor, which is HUGE, these jeans are like magic. On a frame like mine they don't actually make me look bigger but rather they make me look smaller. It's like wearing a pair of sweats that miraculously sheds five pounds. Yes, I'll take 5.
I know that these are technically for Summer wear, but ever since my stomach has expanded 20 fold I have been rocking these babies all week and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I'm pretty sure that these will be able to double as maternity jeans for at least the first two and 1/2 trimesters. You've got to love that. So I apologize Mr. Boyfriend Jeans trend, I never should have doubted you. See that bandwagon? Yep, I just jumped right on it.
My love of this trend does not mean that I am now trendy. You hear that Spring Clogs? I will never, ever, ever, ever wear clogs. Ever. Crap, I think I may have said this before.
p.s I got the ones Reese is wearing. They are by Earnest Sewn. Love them!
