This season I’m all about ripped skinny boyfriend jeans and plaid blanket scarves. Is there anything more cozy/casual for fall than that? I submit that there is not. I’ve been living in some variation of this combo pretty much since the weather turned from warm late summer to crisp autumn.
I love these giant blanket scarves, they’re so unapologetically large, and I like that they basically completely wrap up and hide a bad hair day. Which, let’s face it, happens a lot this time of year in the PNW, because #rain. My poor frizzy hair. I’m definitely due for a keratin treatment.
Also, can we talk about these jeans for a moment? Because I thought there might be more than just me out there who’s kind of up-a-creek when it comes to the ripped-knee jean trend. I love this trend, but when you’re short the "knee rips" kind of end up hitting around the mid-calf. Which looks a little silly. The great thing about these jeans is that the distressing is a little higher. (If you look at the model in the product picture the rips hit her mid-thigh) which means on a shorty like me they are perfectly placed for the ripped knee look.
I also really love the wash and other distressing as well as the fit and how (completely) comfy they are. They are technically skinny jeans. But as I’ve mentioned before I like to just size up two sizes and where them as a slouchy skinny boyfriend jean. I’ve always love Zara for their distressed denim but I haven’t had any luck in the last 6 months there. These jeans are such a great replacement option, and I love that they’re around $70. So, if you’re a shorty like me and you’ve wanted to try the ripped-knee trend but were running into the same problem, here’s a good option.
It’s my second child’s tenth birthday today. Tenth. Wow, that went fast. I asked him what he wanted for his special birthday dinner and he asked for muffins and scrambled eggs. Um, I think I can pull that off. And also, thank you for requesting the easiest meal I will ever make. Maybe the only time he’s ever been low-maintenance. Kidding. Sort of.
