Affordable Boyfriend Jeans + Trendy Lace-Up Flats

F21 Coat (old, similar options here, here & here) / River Island Lace-Up Flats / F21 Frayed Ankle Jeans (one size up) / Old Scarf (similar here)/ Old Navy Tee (similar here) / Modcloth Aviators / Nordstrom Reversible Tote

I'll let you in on a little secret, I've had the best luck with Forever 21 boyfriend jeans. The trick is to buy a pair of slim-to-skinny jeans (just anything other than super skintight jeggings) in one size up from your regular size. The problem with cheap skinny jeans is that they tend to stretch out a lot over time. So that flaw works in your favor in attaining that slouchy-yet-streamlined silhouette you're going for with a boyfriend jean. Also, since I find the look a little trendy, it doesn't hurt that Forever 21 won't break the bank.

Speaking of trends, let's take a moment to admire the lace-up flat. I'm a sucker for any shoe that skews either elfin or witchy and have been overjoyed with the pointed toe trend (rounded toe shoes are the enemy of us small footed folks). Add to it whimsical lace-up detailing and an obnoxiously bright color? Be still, my heart!

But like, not to over-romanticize it or anything...
