As the weather gets warmer, so many of us shed those fitted layers & just want to be cool & casual. (I know I do!) For me, that doesn't mean retiring my jeans but it does mean adding in some different styles, like boyfriend pairs! Boyfriend jeans are known for their slouchy fit & because of that, I often find them difficult to wear & get afraid that I might look frumpy or like I actually borrowing my jeans from my boyfriend ;)

To combat the slouchy, relaxed style of BF jeans, I try to pair my BF jeans with feminine extras (ruffles, fabrics, colors, etc). This time around, I paired my jeans with a girly Peter Pan collared top. (I know what you're thinking - again with the blue & white stripes. Not sorry! I love them! This print also seen here & here)

Also when wearing BF jeans or slouchy style pants, it's important to show off your shape. Because of the slouchy bottoms, a more fitted top pairs well or if your top is slightly blousey like mine, make sure to tuck it in & show off your waist! 

Lastly, opt for dressier shoes. This doesn't mean you have to go crazy in a pair of heels, but a sleek flat, wedge or simple heel is a great option. I try to stay away from sneakers or anything too chunky with these jeans.

PS. How adorable is my mini photographer in these photos?! My sister was babysitting at our house when I put on this outfit & 'A' asked where I was going? I told him I wanted to take photos of this outfit & he decided to help out! My sister snapped these photos on the camera while A took photos on my phone - some of them turned out pretty good (check out my Instagram post for today - it's taken by a 3 year old!!)
