Boyfriend Jeans Dressed Up and Down

One of my most worn pieces this spring has quickly become boyfriend jeans.  They're comfortable and relaxed, which is just how I like to feel when it's sunny outside and the air is fresh!

Boyfriend jeans often get defaulted to super duper casual.  Like, throw on a plain v-neck tee and flip flops or sneakers kind of casual.  But they're much more versatile than that!  Maybe someday I'll show all the ways you can wear boyfriend jeans (see mine so far HERE) but today I edited it down to just two.  Or else things were gonna get crazy with all the options and I'd never get the post up!

Thanks to one of one of the big Old Navy sales I scored these jeans for $16 and haven't looked back.  (BTW, they were super out of stock last week but since then a few sizes have come back in.)  I personally love the distressing because it adds a little texture to the outfits, but there's also a pair of non-distressed ones HERE in several washes.  I'm normally size 6/8 for jeans, and for the distressed jeans I sized down a lot and am wearing 4.  For the non-distressed pair the 6 fit perfectly.

Casual and Relaxed
The first look has more or less been my momiform ever since I got these jeans.  I prefer it to a plain tee, even though a graphic tee is a tee just the same.  Then, just so I can feel somewhat pulled together I add a tiny necklace, a bracelet, a watch, and sandals that look like I'm kind of trying.  Then I head to Target.  Because that's what moms do, right?  (And the rest of the population, if you know what's good for ya. ;) )

Dressy Casual
You may have noticed I'm a huge fan of dressy casual.  I like dressing up, but then I get worried about being overdressed and feel uncomfortable.  I know, I know, totally my own issues.  But it's okay because dressy casual is the perfect medium, and boyfriend jeans are great for that!

I paired the boyfriend jeans with a girly blouse and a blazer, then added a sleek pair of heels to finish off the look.  Great for a date or going out with friends!

If you want to see more ways I've worn boyfriend jeans, click HERE.  Not only can you dress them up or down, but you can wear a bunch of different styles with them, like boho, girly, glam, or tomboy to name a few.  Like I said, one of my most worn pieces for spring!


  1. Super cute! I like those because they aren't super slouchy, low-crotch boyfriend jeans. I just haven't fallen in love with ones like that. Love both looks!

  2. I love how versatile bf jeans are! I really want to get a new pair because my old ones are wearing out. Both of your outfits are amazing!


  3. I love your hair all curly! Will you please remind me where you get those tanks you wear under your tops? I think you mentioned that once, but I have forgotten. I like to wear them for modesty and to help my jiggly tummy! Thanks!

  4. Thanks, Janine! The cami's I wear currently are nursing friendly, from Undercover Mama. Pre-nursing mine were from Old Navy or Target, and I specifically didn't want the built in bra. I hate those things personally!

  5. I have those shoes! I love them so much!

  6. You wear your boyfriend jeans well! :) I like the distressing on them too, it's nice but not too much. You see some interesting 'distressed' jeans around now, haha! :)

  7. I have yet to find a pair of BF jeans that I think look good on me. I am loving how you dressed up this pair, they look great!

  8. Yep, that's my momiform, too. I got a stretchy pair of distressed pants from New York & Company that my daughter likes to "further distress". Hehe


  9. I love a good dressy casual outfit as well! I'd love to find a pair that work on me - I may need to check out Old Navy - yours are so cute!
