For the love of the Boyfriend Jean

Boyfriend Jeans are loose and are cut parallel to men’s jeans. They are baggy around the hips/thighs and tend to taper slightly from the knees down. Often you can wear the jeans rolled up. With these jeans I unrolled the jeans so they fit me full length. Boyfriend jeans look great with sandals, flats, and super high heels/stilettos and pumps as well.

Last weekend I bought my first pair of boyfriend jeans and I have lived in them the entire week so I knew I had to make a post on them. I purchased them from Gap and they were on sale for 40% off. A lot of boyfriend jeans have heavy rips in them and I steer clear of those. These don’t have any rips. I know H&M has boyfriend jeans that have rips but they are covered and so it doesn’t show skin. I want to buy those next!

This is a super laid back casual outfit. I’m wearing a high low top with it. To avoid looking exceptionally baggy, I tucked the shirt in at the front. Boyfriend jeans are great because they are so loose that I am able to wear my shorter shirts with them. To complete my super casual laidback look, I opted for no eyeliner and no lipstick; hope you were still able to recognize me! Ha. I wore a cotton headscarf to keep the material of each article of clothing consistent.

What is the best thing about boyfriend jeans?! No actual boyfriend is required. Ha. I felt this look was similar to looks from: ManRepeller.com. Below, I uploaded moving pictures. This is the first time I ever added them to my blog posts. What do you think of it? I feel like I’m awkwardly dancing in the second one.

For the love of the Big Apple Circus

About a month ago, I attended the Big Apple Circus when it was in town. I went with my husband and both our sons. It was held at Cunningham park in Queens. Very many years ago when I was in Junior High School, I remember going to the circus on a Friday night with some of my girlfriends and it was nostalgic to be back at the same place well over a decade later.

The acts were unique to the Big Apple and they incorporated parts of NYC life into the circus acts. For example the dog show was set to take place in central park because back in the day that was the weekend activity- walking dogs in the park and the tightrope walk act was shown to be walking over the Verrazano bridge.

The Big Apple Circus is such a lovely family tradition. It’s smaller scale than a larger circus like the Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey circus which is usually held at a much larger venue. I attended this circus in my childhood and I remember that it was my first time ever going to Madison Square Garden which was very exciting. The Big Apple Circus gives off a neighborhood vibe by being held at the park. The circus is complete with typical circus food which was available for purchase consisting of popcorn, soda, hot dogs, cotton candy etc. adding to the laidback feel. The kids loved it and it was quite enjoyable by all. (There are no pics of the show itself because photography was not allowed inside.)
