I Found Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans were like my Moby Dick. I had searched through racks of clothing, online and in stores to find a pair that had the right fit, the right price and the right wash. Finding the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans is an elusive thing. I am still not entirely sure that I actually find them that flattering, but I am really happy with the fit of these and at $36 they were within my budget. Now that I have found a pair I love, I have appropriately paired them with preppy stripes and bow heels for a casual Friday look. Because what else would you wear with them? Also, fall seems like just the right time to break these out. I can't wait to pair them with slouchy sweaters and booties for the perfectly casual look. Do you like boyfriend jeans?

Red October

Do you feel it? The "fall" in the air?  I do! I was driving to work and for the first time this season saw a sea of colors along the side of the road. My fall/Halloween decorations are up and I am wearing tights. Tights! I am trying weird recipes involving pumpkin. Some good and some not so good. The only thing I haven't done yet this season is have a pumpkin spice latte. And now I don't think I will having seen the scary info graphic about its ingredients. Oh well! It's a good excuse to try the local coffee place I guess. This is one of my first truly fall outfits. The colors and the layering say it all. Are you excited for fall? Or are you one of those people who wishes it was still summer?
