weekend style, casual outfit, ripped jeans, boyfriend jeans, ankle booties, long-line cardigan, floral scarf

Until recently I wasn't the biggest fan of jeans. I used to have 2 pairs at most at any given time, which is insanely little for most women. The biggest reason that I didn't wear jeans as much as other things is that other than one or two designer brands (AG and Genetic are my favorite) I didn't find any to be soft enough for me. I know, I'm super picky but if you like me are OCD about soft jeans then at least you know you can trust my denim picks! So anyway, o
ne of the best things about this year for me, fashion-wise anyway, is the fact that there are so many actually soft non-designer jeans. That along with the fact that the recent trend in denim is away from skinnies and towards more relaxed styles makes me very happy. There are so many amazing options right now in boyfriend, girlfriend and the 70's flared leg styles!

The pair I'm wearing here is called "Tomgirl", I guess maybe intended as a cross between boyfriend and girlfriend? It fits very much like a boyfriend jean and is so stretchy and comfortable that the name is very apt. It has a ton of rips and the fabric is so soft that you almost feel like you're wearing nothing. It sits lower on the hips, is cut loose in the thighs and then tapers a little at the ankles.

One of the things I love about these jeans is that they're very petite-friendly. The length requires no alteration. Just roll to wear you want them and you're good to go. I wore these on a 6+ hour flight to LA and they were so comfortable that I think they'll be my go-to pants for any long-haul flight. Way more comfortable than my skinnies, which used to my old flying uniform. Unfortunately they seem to be sold out of these jeans in this color online but the white ones look super cute and I've linked those.

This is one of my favorite ways to style boyfriend jeans when you want a casual, comfortable look. It just involves tucking a t-shirt or tank top into the jeans, throwing on a neutral long-line cardigan to keep the top streamlined and give the outfit a tiny bit of definition, and then sticking on a scarf you like. This would be super cute with a long vest too and if you wanted to go a little more structured you could try a blazer instead of the cardigan.

I also carried my new vegan weekender, which I wasn't sure I would like all that much when I ordered it but totally fell in love with when it came. I used to never wear or use any kind of faux leather but the quality and design of these leather look-alike products has improved so much recently that it's hard not to give them a try. Although this bag is called a weekender (and I have used it for a weekend trip) I've been using it around town as a replacement for my Louis Vuitton Neverfull. I can stuff about the same amount of things in it as in the Neverfull, it has a nice structure, and it zips close so nothing spills out. I happened to buy the camel one but the black looks equally amazing and the price is crazy good for a cute carry-all at under $100.
