Comfy Jeans Rave: Gap 1969 Sexy Boyfriend Jeans

We interrupt this self-imposed, life-is-damn-busy-and-hard blogging break to bring you an item of frivolity.

(You can scroll down to the bottom of the post for a tiny update on my going-abouts.)

Once again, I am waaayyyyy late to a fashion trend. I remember borrowing J’s jeans a few times when I was pregnant, when none of my regular jeans would fit and I didn’t think my still-expanding belly yet warranted maternity jeans. I didn’t like the look too much at the time, so I eschewed the boyfriend jeans mania when it started to become popular a couple of years ago.

Thinking back, I hated my pregnant body (both times) and I didn’t like the way anything looked on me back then, so I probably didn’t give boyfriend jeans a proper chance.

So when I finally tried on my first pair of boyfriend jeans at a local Gap…

And saw just how comfortable they were…

I became hooked. ADDICTED, I tell ya!

The Gap 1969 Destructed Sexy Boyfriend Jeans, to be exact. The Gap where I purchased these jeans didn’t carry petite sizes, but it didn’t matter because I knew I would be rolling them up. I know I’m not the best model, but seriously these jeans are soooo comfortable! I’ve even found myself reaching for them over my yoga pants!

Boyfriend jeans are meant to be loose, so I recommend you size down if you’re looking for a slimmer fit. The ones I’m wearing in the picture above is a 26 (I don’t know why online sizes are regular number sizing while at the stores, they go by waist size) and they’re comfortably loose — not baggy — on me.

Blogging has been difficult lately because the girls have been keeping me plenty busy. Claire also stopped napping a couple of months ago…but she’s at that transitional stage where she still needs a nap but refuses to sleep, thus becoming a cranky mess at around 5pm every day. So not only has my “quiet alone time while both girls are napping” gone bye-bye, I’m dealing with a kid who is full into her terrible twos and a “threenager” who becomes overtired every evening.

I’ve also become uninspired. Even things I find interesting online — stuff I would have shared on this blog without a second thought in the past — I figure that a popular site like BuzzFeed or Reddit has already picked it up so there’s no use in my re-sharing it. (Or do you like it when I share random stuff I find on the interwebz?)

But I want to blog more frequently again. There have been, and will be a lot of change and excitement in my life this year (including a trip to Korea later this month!), so I am crossing my fingers that this desire to become a better blogger will stimulate some motivation and creativity.

Hope to write again soon!

  1. Definitely miss your blogging! Please do post your random findings as I don’t go on buzzfeed or reddit regularly.
    I also love Gap’s boyfriend jeans. They are even more comfortable than sweat pants.

  2. Ruth:

    Missed your blogging, as well! And same as above: I hardly go on buzzfeed/reddit unless it’s something my friends shared with me.
    As for boyfriend jeans…I never really liked the look, either. Maybe I’m like you in that I need to give it another chance.

  3. Siwli:

    I can only add to the previous comments in that I never check buzzfeed or reddit :-) And you always seem to find the really cool stuff, so keep it coming.

    I have never tried boyfriend jeans since I figured they might not fit me (I have fairly large hips and stuff that’s too baggy makes my legs look fat all over). But I never actually tried one. Might do that after all :-)

  4. Kaycey:

    This post made me smile. I enjoy the fun random posts and can’t wait to hear about your trip to South Korea later. For some reason boyfriend jeans look awkward on me

  5. Tara:

    Hang in there — everything gets easier at 4, and 5 is a whole new wonderful world of big-kid-ness. May seem far away still, but it’s close in the grand scheme of things! Plus, I’m sure the girls will start keeping each other occupied as they get better about playing together. Would love to hear more from you. Definitely tell us all about Korea!

  6. I like when you share random things…I don’t go on the sites that you mentioned.

    Love the look of the boyfriend jeans but haven’t tried GAP jeans in years, maybe I need to give them a 2nd look next time at the mall. I am usually a fan of Old Navy’s but I think they have changed the design in the last few years because I don’t find them as comfy.

  7. Another vote for please keep sharing random things! Even though I might see them elsewhere on the web, I usually see them here first – plus things get an extra boost of credibility and charm when they come from a blogger I trust (that’s you!) :)

  8. J Lee:

    Definitely have been missing you blogging. Please post ANYTHING. Those bf jeans look really cute on you btw

  9. Alice:

    Welcome back; and I’m so glad that you are!! You’ve been missed. I normally just read and don’t comment, but I was super excited to see all the new content on your site.

    Please do re-share here as I don’t visit Reddit or Buzzfeed!

    Keep it going! Your blog is inspiring and helps me keep up with you! Can’t wait to see what you have in store!
