Until last week, I had exactly one style of jeans in my closet. They’re dark wash, they’re skinny, they go with everything. You could say I was in a bit of a jean rut. Seriously, who purchases multiples of the exact same jean and wears them to shreds? [They’re these ones, if you’re curious.]
Then I spotted these online. I hemmed and hawed. I went back and forth on potential styling options with my cube neighbour. I ordered two sizes and then waited a full week before trying to wear them. But oh, I’m glad I did. These painted boyfriend jeans are an easy weekend wear that manage to look, shall we say, rebelliously polished. As a bonus, each pair has a unique paint pattern.
Painted Jeans & leather jacket: Banana Republic / Necklace: Kate Spade / Sunglasses: Prada / Button-down: Pink Tartan / Shoes: Vince Camuto
Paired with colourful pumps, a silk + jersey button down, my favourite statement necklace and leather (because it was a bit chilly on Sunday), they make for the perfect outfit. I’ll even say it’s a cool outfit, because my husband’s 21-year-old cousin told me it was. So there you have it.
If you’re going to order them, I’d recommend ordering your usual size and one size down. I ultimately ended up keeping my regular Banana Republic jeans size, but I did prefer how the leg looked in the smaller size. I may still get them tailored to taper the leg a bit – we’ll see!
Charlie was into them too, but you wouldn’t know it.
What’s your spring must-have?
P.S. Mike wants you all to know that he took these photos. In that he demanded a photo credit. So here it is. My husband went all Instagram Husband on me and finally snapped some outfit pics. Rejoice!
