in-JEAN-ious


Jacket and sweater-top: Club Monaco
Necklace: F21
Boyfriend Jeans: Current/Elliott
Pumps: YSL

Thanks again to Nini and Chickdowntown for these wonderful boyfriend jeans! I originally won the Skinny/Slouchy ones, but they ran out of my size (hence the boyfriend jeans). Lately, I've been obsessed with cuffing my jeans and my long jackets. I do recommend wearing heels or something dressier (like a jacket) with a pair of boyfriend jeans to contrast their casualness.

My other current jeans obsession is the new "it" style: motocross jeans. The knee detailing, stitching, and seaming add a subtle rocker vibe that is very au currant.


Of course, I won't be purchasing anything with an obscene price tag, but they are wonderful...

Compared to the Balmain's, these are priced more reasonably. I adore the detailing at the waist. Check out Lucky Magazine for their mini-feature on motocross jeans.

I like the blazer and jeans look, too. You look casual yet classy!

I either cuff or fold up my jeans these days.

Hey gorgeous,
I hope all is well.
I love the entire outfit! It looks so great + chic together!
Motorcycle jeans are just awesome - but I wouldn't spend a fortune into a pair of Balmain jeans myself, too. Thanks so much for showing a very wonderful alternative!!
much love, sofie

Happy sunny tuesday to you, Thumbelina!

Loved already your headline "in-Jean-ous" ;)
These motorcycle jeans look so stylish!... it´s still the same when it comes to Balmain.. they can put a ridiculous price tag on their items and they are sold out.. ;) ... but I like them VERY much ;)
And not forget to mention your Current/ Elliott which look so tres chic with your pumps!

Beautiful Blessings to youuu....

I'm digging this jean style as well. It's very edgy and tough, definitely a new take on the skinny jean trend!

Oh, I LOVE the combo of distressed jeans and sexy shoes. I have gorgeous, thin wedges that are begging for a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans, and I just can't seem to find any I love.

You look really chic in jeans. The Balmain jean is something that I can't take my eyes away from them ;)
Have a nice day Thumbelina,
Nini
