These are boyfriend jeans. I mean, they're actually seriously guy jeans. I bought them several years ago way cheap on a clearance rack at Penney's. I've never worn them though because the waist is high and the legs are wider than I'd like. So, they were the perfect pair for a DIY transformation.
I cut a little hole in one knee and then ripped so that the fabric ripped all the way from one seam to the other.
Then, on the other leg, I didn't want the hole exactly at the knee. I decided to do two holes in that leg. I made one hole a couple inches above the knee and one hole a couple inches below the knee. Being symmetrical is so overrated. BUT. . . . then I decided I'd make a hole in the knee anyway.
Then, I cut the edge off the pockets and I cut the seams on the bottom to expose the raw edge.
A trip through the washer and dryer finished this pair up.
I like pairing them with bright colored tights underneath for a bright pop of color. You can tell I was having a pop of color, casual tee, half-pulled scraggly pony-tail, pearl earrings, bright fuschia lip with a bare face kind of day. And of course I'm not your typical "fashion" blogger. I don't have a fancy DSL camera set up with perfect lighting. I have a tablet and a floor or a night stand or whatever I can prop that thing on. I have ceiling fans and dirty floors and bedroom doors. One should never take themselves too seriously!!!! You can tell I don't.
