“RIP” Boyfriend Jeans

I really liked last year;s GAP Boyfriend distressed jeans. So much that I bought two pair, in regular wash and light wash. I should have bought more. They are my go-to jeans for super-casual and around the house wear.

Here’s an outfit I wore last week.

Blouse: Joie – gift from my Momo T
Jeans: GAP Boyfriend Distressed
Belt: J Crew
Shoes: Steve Madden Gladiator Wood Heel 

“R.I.P” – Literally!
I ran errands in this and it was not pretty at the end of the day. There was a frayed “hole” right above the knee. As I got out of my car I heard the “rip”. It wasn’t big. But then I had to get in the car and back out again and each time the “hole” got bigger and bigger. I made sure my other pair didn’t have fraying in the same place. (It doesn’t.) Now I’ve got to find another pair. GAP has some but they are too long. I hate that their “Ankle” length is still 3-4 inches too long. 
Have a great day!

    hate when that happens!!

    And I completely agree – ankle does not mean 31 inches…

    My condolences. They are my absolute favorite pair too. I have them in the the boyfriend with the rips and without. I have both pair in two sizes (For those up/down momwnts). They are the best !

    I also have two pair of these! I do love the fit and the stretch. Good luck in your search. It is so sad to see a favorite pair of jeans pass away!
