NOT-YOUR-BOYFRIEND’S JEANS

Happy Monday guys!! I hope we all had a great weekend. Mine was a bit… cray. But I’ll get into that in another post. Today we’re talkin’  boyfriend jeans! I love the look of boyfriend jeans, I won’t lie. But I think what I like about them is how they sort of hang off the models I’ve seen wear them, and they just look really  loose, comfortable, and wearable.

UNFORTUNATELY,  if you’ve got ass and thighs, it’s hard to find boyfriend jeans that even look like boyfriend jeans. Like I don’t know what the difference is between tight jeans or anything else. Like everything is tight when you fill out your size. So I had the hardest time finding comfy jeans that looked like the sought-after “boyfriend jeans”.

So I made my damn OWN. At Kohl’s they have these Sonoma Goods For Life jeans that I bought a size bigger than what I normally get. They’re loose fitting, and they fit like, well, boyfriend jeans.

Then I took a serrated bread knife and shredded ’em up a bit. I like holey, distressed jeans and I like the holey boyfriend jean trend, so I took it a step further.

I stuffed the leg I was working on with a hard surface and went to town. I like this method as opposed to using a scissor cut and pulling out the threads because 1) It’s faster. 2) it’s messier. and 3) it’s 100x easier. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to rough up the pockets, the hem, and the waist!

And if you’re curious, I got my top at Belk, there’s a similar one here, my shoes at Payless, (currently on sale for $15!) and the necklace is from Forever21 (which I couldn’t find online, but you can find similar here!)

  • Quote of the day: “Be alone. Eat alone. Take yourself on dates. Sleep alone. In the midst of this, you will learn about yourself. You will grow. You will figure out what inspires you. You will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you meet the person that makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you will be sure of yourself.”

  • Today I’m grateful for the things about me that I always considered to be my “bad” qualities. 
I think “bad” qualities are something we all possess, but I also think they’re useful in the sense that they do a job to weed the people out of our lives that aren’t beneficial to our end game- whatever that may be. 
So I’m listing my “bad” qualities this morning and I’m going to repurpose them. What good have they brought me? 
Some of the good I’ve come up with include: clarity, new surroundings, a chance to do what i need for myself, a new appreciation for life, love for myself that I didn’t realize I had, and so many more. 
If you’re feeling especially down about yourself, I challenge you to make a list of the things you don’t love and repurpose them. Think about what kind of good came out of your bad qualities and embrace that. 
I fully believe we are who we are for a reason and we should probably stop trying to be what we think people want us to be, and we should just.. be. Good, bad, and everything in between. You’ll be surprised who and what you attract.

ive been doing great with these captions, huh? 
i had 2 job interviews today & I’m going to reward myself with fried pickles. 🍽
  • Somethin about being sweet and wearing a crown. idk. I’m an asshole.
  • Life can get confusing. 
Intentions can get lost. 
Goals can change. 
It’s just what happens. But I’m going to try my damndest to channel the inner freebird inside me and learn to roll with these changes instead of trying to control them. 
We’re not in control of what happens. We’re only in control of our reactions and the choices we make.
