I think I found my new spring uniform.
Last year I would have told you that boyfriend jeans weren’t on my radar. I even wrote a post, How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans, and said that I didn’t think I could pull them off.
But the more I see my fashionable blogger friends sporting the boyfriends, the more I think that maybe, JUST MAYBE I could pull them off.

I have been known to wear destructed denim styles in my shorts, so maybe it’s not such a stretch.
I’m usually a designer denim girl but I didn’t want to invest in pricey boyfriend jeans if I wasn’t going to wear them a lot so I stopped into LOFT this afternoon because I knew they were still running their 40% Off Sale and I had seen boyfriend jeans on their site.
LOFT Friends & Family Sale: 40% Off Entire Purchase with Promo Code FRIENDS2. Shop from 3/27 12:00AM EST to 4/1 11:59PM EST
I wasn’t sure about them at first.
But with a little encouragement from the salesgirl and my friends on Instagram, they were soon in my shopping bag! I ended up with the boyfriend jeans in the Jardin wash rather than the lighter Terrace wash that I saw online. According to the sales staff, these jeans are selling like hot cakes. They can’t keep them in the store. I was fortunate to find my size. By the way, I did go down a size from my normal size, so if you are planning to place an order, keep that in mind. You may want to size down.
I also picked up a couple of lightweight spring sweaters in pastel shades, and a few of their accessories. The weather may not feel like spring quite yet, but when it does, I’ll be ready!
I got home and put the entire outfit together and I am loving it! I tried it with both flats and sandals. I agree with Nicole’s advice — they don’t do a lot for me with the flats, even though they’re super cute flats!!! I think a flat strappy sandal would work, but not these.
I like them a lot better with these wedge sandals. I’m not quite sure I’m ready to try them with pumps. Here in the ‘burbs, that might be a bit much. But I definitely like them best with some height in the shoe. I’m eyeing up those sandals Alison is wearing with hers in the photo at the top. They would be perfect for me!
I have a feeling I’m going to be getting A LOT of wear out of these boyfriend jeans this year!!!!!
Want a pair? BUY THEM NOW while they’re still 40% off!!! And check out the rest of LOFT’s spring and summer styles — it’s 40% off EVERYTHING until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday) night!!
I keep getting questions about these Sam Edelman Romy Wedge Sandals. They’re actually ON SALE right now at Nordstrom!
