Craving Boyfriend Jeans

I have officially one week(!!!) left for my year-of-no-shopping and I have been salivating over boyfriend jeans. This trend really took off last fall and I've been seeing all sorts of style "guides" and "how-to's" for this up and coming jean silhouette. I have my eye on a few options.


This pair seems like a good basic starter pair for the boyfriend trend. 




This distressed version feels more edgy/sexy, and I haven't had a pair of ripped up jeans since like 1999! The surge of 90's nostalgia is pulling at me a bit with this pair. Plus I'd love to glam them up with killer heels and a ultra fem-top and blazer. You know I love my blazers. 




I really like the wash of these, it's a good shade to head into fall, which I can't believe is upon us. The end of July can be so depressing because there's only one month left and all those grand plans discussed in June, like hikes, picnics, renting bikes haven't really happened... sigh... Back to the jeans, these are a more sophisticated take on the distressed pair, and may be a bit more age-appropriate for me. Gosh, it sucks being a grownup. 




I'm wondering if ending my fast is the right time to try out a more premium brand like these 7 for all mankind boyfriends. I've never owned a pair of higher-end jeans, or even tried them on. Is Madewell considered high-end? I do have a pair of crops from them, but I'm wondering if an exploratory mission of a designer label is in order...  

Don't worry I'm not going to go crazy next week. I am definitely getting a pair of boyfriend jeans, unless of course they totally don't suit me (fingers crossed). I'm also in the market for a new bathing suit for an upcoming beach trip (summer I'm not letting go yet!). And I think it's time for a new dress, but I'm not sure what I'm really looking for. Check back next week for a dress post as I try to figure out what will go on my back to shopping list.
