The Verdict

A decision has been reached, regarding the boyfriend jeans.  I’m sure you were unable to think of anything else all weekend so I’m here to put you out of your misery.

I am afraid it comes down to the dreaded two words — “age appropriate.”  If I were 30, I’d snatch them right up.  I really like the look.  I suppose they appeal to my inner rock star, suppressed though she may be.

Five years ago, I could have pulled it off.  But with the big 4-0 looming ominously, I think it’s time to come to terms with the fact that rips and tears have no place on my apparel.

The white jeans, on the other hand, are a go.  I’m not sure if I’m going to get the ones I had on in the photo on Friday.  I might; I really like them, and they would be nice for dressier occasions and nights out.

However, I did find another pair of white jeans on Saturday.  I stopped in the Gap because they were offering 35% off all denim purchases if you brought in old denim to recycle.  I was actually looking for a boyfriend jean without holes in them, but instead I came across a pair of white cropped skinny jeans that fit really well.

First, imagine them WITHOUT the booties.  What IS that?

Second, I didn’t try them on rolled up.  On me they are more of an ankle length, which I think will be really cute with sandals and flip flops in the summer months.  Best of all, with 35% off, they were less than $40.  SCORE!
