Meet My Boyfriend

I always have been a big fan of the over-sized, “boyfriend” clothing for women – from jeans to tops, there’s nothing more comfortable or effortlessly chic than looking like you just threw on one of your man’s button-down shirts. This outfit in particular is one of my favorites – I never will get tired of pairing chambray on denim and adding a touch of girlishness to an otherwise androgynous outfit with a pair of printed smoking flats and silver bar drop earrings.

We also need to take a minute to discuss these boyfriend jeans from Lee – I am completely obsessed! They are a curvy fit, which means that they are a classic midrise in the front but slightly higher in the back, making for an ultra-flattering cut for us ladies that are a tad self-conscious about the bottom portion of the body. I’ve never worn a more comfortable or flattering pair of boyfriend jeans, and I especially love that they aren’t baggy in the thigh or, ahem, crotch area. I can still feel and look like a put-together woman while enjoying the comfort of a pair of men’s style pants – that’s what I call #winning.

    Your skin is seriously glowing, you look so so pretty! I’ve actually never tried boyfriend jeans – I’ve always thought that they wouldn’t really do well on my shape, but the cut of those sounds amazing! I wish we had that store in Canada so I could try a pair on!

  3. This is such a great, classic look! Finding good jeans can be such a challenge, but these are fantastic! Boyfriend jeans are tricky–I still haven’t found a pair that I love. I may have to check out Lee, I’m pleasantly surprised!

    • Yes, you totally should check them out! I was surprised, too (I thought they mainly were for women my mom’s age), but they fit like a glove.

  8. i love these!! i recently bought a pair from old navy so i will be strong and not also buy these, but these look way better than mine haha. i like that they are making more fitted boyfriend jeans now, i kept trying them over the years and couldn’t stand how baggy they were everywhere. i used to wear my brothers jeans when i was 16-17, i don’t need to relive that!

    • Haha, you crack me up! No, let’s not go back to wearing our brother’s jeans. 🙂 I bet the Old Navy pair that you got are great, I love their denim.

  9. I liked how you contrasted the boyfriend jeans with those fab leopard flats. I still haven’t found a pair of BF jeans that look good on me or that I don’t have to wear heels with lol

  13. Such a cute look on you!! Love those flats too! I was just thinking yesterday about how I’d love a pair of leopard flats. I think that the tighter boyfriend jean ( or girlfriend style which may just be an Evereve term haha) is very flattering on you too. Sadly I don’t have the right body type for those type of jeans though. :-/ Those KUT jeans that you linked are cute too, we sell a lot of those at work. 🙂

    • Thanks, girl! I think these technically are more of a “girlfriend” jean, so don’t worry – I know the terminology that you’re referring to. 🙂

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
