It's no surprise to most of you that I'm a big fan of thrifting.
Whether it's something for in the home, toys, clothes for Micha, clothes for me, shoes,
you name it, if it looks good and doesn't smell funky, I'll take it!
Recently I got a pair of maternity jeans for a few euros.
They were so cheap and of such good quality that I just couldn't say no.
But when I got home and properly tried them on, they were a bit 'meh'.
Super comfortable, but I wasn't loving the look of them.
I usually only wear skinny jeans and these had straight legs,
and they just felt a bit frumpy to me.
While I'm all for comfortable clothes, especially while pregnant,
I still want to look and feel good.
You won't find me walking around town in sweats unless I'm about to burst and nothing else will fit.
So, back to the jeans, I put them away and they've been hiding in my closet until a few days ago.
I had been looking at maternity style inspiration on Pinterest one morning,
because I was so bored with the outfits I'd been wearing lately.
And one style popped out and tweaked my interest: 'the distressed boyfriend jeans' look.
Such a fun and casual style, and it looked so comfortable too!
So I began looking for this style of jeans online and found this pair of jeans at H&M.
And while I liked the look of them, I just wasn't ready to fork over forty euros for a pair of maternity jeans that will probably be out of style if I ever get pregnant again.
Looking nice while pregnant: yes. Spending lots of money on maternity clothing: no.
I'd rather spend it on cute outfits I'll be able to wear when I'm no longer pregnant, thus enjoying them longer.
And then then the thrift jeans popped into my mind.
I grabbed them out of my closet, rolled up the legs, and tried them on.
Voila, boyfriend jeans!
But they still weren't perfect, and so I began destroying them.
I scraped a cheese grater over my jeans, and then a knife,
and kept scraping and ripping until I was satisfied.
It was pretty therapeutic, if I may say so.
I love how they turned out.
Now they're not only the most stylish jeans on my closet, they're also the most comfortable pair.
Which brings me to the next problem, what do I wear when they're in the laundry?
Do you love the boyfriend jeans trend too?
