Boyfriend Jeans and a Halter





Let’s just say, I don’t know how some of you ladies do it. That is, wearing  jeans in summer like weather. Close to 90 degrees today, and my boyfriend jeans were literally sticking to me like my ex-boyfriend. I need my clothes to breathe!! However, this has been a goal of mine, ever since I had been diagnosed, and have sensitivity in my legs. I have not been able to wear jeans for 5 years, so I thought I would try. I do like boyfriend, over other jeans, as they are baggy, comfy and still look cute

.Because of the sillouette, I like form fitting tops with boyfriend jeans. I find baggy on the bottom looks better with something that shows one’s shape, otherwise, you get lost in the bagginess or looseness of it all. I have had this halter for awhile now, and just really like red. This reminds me of a bandana, and I suppose the look is rather patriotic, like I could wear it on the 4th,  due to the red, white and blue. So, here and there you will see me wear some jeans, but now probably more so in the fall. We are heading into shorts weather, so you may see me in some shorts next week, we will see. There are just some days were we all like to dress casual. If I could wear heels, I would pair this with some of the heels that I love, the gladiator lace ups with the heel. They would add a little more dressiness to the outfit, and I just love the look. I am instead, wearing Sofft black gladiators, as they show comfort and style.

Have a great weekend

    That’s the perfect top with your boyfriend jeans, Jess! Love it! I also like to pair them with form fitting tops or blazers to add some feminine touch. The forecast is promising sunny and warm weather this week, can’t wait!

      Hi Annette So glad to hear from you.l I have been thinking of you and wondering how you are. Thank you regarding the comment. I do like jeans, I just need soft ones that don’t cling so much. I have so many pairs in my wardrobe but some are on the back burner. I agree, I like them with form fitting tops and yes a blazer would look so cute as well. Glad you are getting nice weather this week, Enjoy it! Jess xo

    The colour of that top looks amazing against your lovely red locks! I’m still on the fence about boyfriend jeans, I don’t have any myself, but I think they look good on others. P x

    Oh I get having to choose clothes based on what our bodies can handle. Wedge heels are my very favorite, and I had to go a few years without them. Now encouraged by a bit of a health improvement and how I should continue to improve, I’m hoping to get back able to wear them in the semi-near future. Btw, I LOVE the earrings!! 🙂

        this is true, it may be casual dress but it is all in how you wear it, the fire of personality underneath, and the manner in which you wear it. you get A+’s for all three and therefore earn the solid gold kewpie doll! 🙂

    Lucky you, sporting your adorable summery look! Can you believe it was snowing here in Chicago this morning?! I’m ready to head back to Naples 😉 which is what I’m featuring on the bog today so do check it out.

    Love your jeans and paired with that great top it speaks effortless casual chic!

      Thanks so much Mary! Wow. I don’t believe snow in Chicago. Ah. I couldn’t take that. Well, we have had a heat spell, so it may cool down some. I will see your post on Naples. I need a vacation, loved where you went, looked like a wonderful time.
      Have a great weekend too, jess xx

    Wow, you are rocking this look, what is your age again, Miss Jess?? 🙂
    I agree this would be perfect for the fourth! It is still in the seventies here, denim is not a problem.
    Time for you to bare those legs: shorts for Jess!
    Looking truly gorgeous!

      Hi Elle, I would have totally worn these with those lace up gladiator style stilletos, but alas, not gonna happen, that is ok. Ahhh Elle, you are too kind.. my bday is in 2 months. The big: 4-6. Oh well a number I think. We both take care of our skin which helps. You are sweet. Thanks so much . Next week I may post a pair of shorts, I have a few.

    You are rocking these jeans! Boyfriend jeans are one thing i haven not been able to get myself to wear.. And so true about jeans and sticky weather, they are the most uncomfortable if they are skinny! Love this casual outfit..

      Thank you! Once in awhile you just want to dress down huh.. .THose shoes at the bottom I would totally wear if I could.. BUT, I do like boyfriend jeans, just not when it is this hot, forget about wearin skinny jeans. I love the look would wear them, but with my leg sensitivity, I cant wear clothing that close to my legs. I appreciate the comment hon!! xx jess

    Hi Jess,
    sorry I´ve been very busy during the last days so I haven´t been able to post many comments. Your boyfriend jeans are pretty cool. Love the colour of your top and of course the Rebecca Minkoff bag, which adds rock chic to your styling.
    Enjoy your weekend,

      No problem Monika!! I know we all get busy. Blogging is time consuming. Thank you, glad you like the jeans. I am a big fan of red, and don’t believe red heads cant wear red. My RM bag is showing some wear as it is one of my favs! Have a great weekend as well.

    Jess, you look fantastic in that outfit! I know what you mean about the heat though…I’ve been wearing jeans and crops more this year because I really don’t love shorts any more. It’s already heating up enough to remind me that shorts are a must!

      Thanks so much Stacey! It really is too hot for jeans, but this is a hot spell in NC right now , will be cooler next week. There are all kinds of great shorts right now, so many that you can dress up as well. I will wear shorts on days like this.. I checked on your site as well, and only if I could garden and have such lovely flowers!

    I’m so glad you told me about your wearing jeans because you look gorgeous!! I know what you mean about jeans in sticky weather! We are having 40-60 degrees here now, which is crazy cold for this time of year… maybe it will head your way! That top is adorable and jealous you can wear it (I never have been able to wear halters). And Chloe and I just discovered Sofft and are both wearing them in posts soon. They ROCK!

      Hi Kim
      Thank you! I like boyfriend jeans on people, I also have a ton of flares, straight legs, etc.. but may try and wear more of them on cool days or fall. The top I have had for years and I liked the pattern. Yes, Sofft shoes are great I may do a post on comfy and stylish shoes soon.
