Weekend Warrior

I’ve done it, kittens; I’ve achieved the impossible – or at least the imagined impossible…I’ve made it all the way to Wednesday! Please don’t scoff, chuckle, or chortle, mes amours; I’m being completely serious here. Do you know how difficult it is to make it all the way to Wednesday without having a virtual nuclear meltdown when you’re a hardworking college student? Slim to none, to be honest. Therefore having made it to the middle of the week without encountering such a calamity is something that should be celebrated with a little gift or two; a gift that will pay tribute to the thing I love the most…the weekend, like The Weekend Jeans perhaps.

Don’t get me started dolls; I’m already well-versed in what you’re thinking…I’m crazy for wanting a pair of cuffed boyfriend jeans when the weather is just turning colder; the leaves have begun to change colors; and fireplaces have been filled with wood, sending wispy curlicues of smoke into the crisp blue sky through brick chimneys. The very same chimneys, in fact, that Santa Claus will soon be sliding down himself to shower all the good boys and girls with gifts of all shapes and sizes. With that in mind, why on earth would I want to, after months of sweltering heat in which I donned boots and skinny jeans, expose my skinny ankles to a shiver-inducing chill by wearing completely cute, if not necessarily practical, cuffed pants come the cooler months? Because loves, we must suffer for fashion!

Regardless of a little nip in the air, a few goose bumps should not prohibit us from wearing something as adorable and sophisticated as The Weekend Jeans. After all, darlings, just think of the ways they will spruce up our wardrobes from day to night; I can see it now…

You’ll look resplendent in the Blue Jet wash during Friday evening’s girls’ night out. Topped with a cropped blazer, and embellished with a statement necklace, a cocktail ring or two, a kicky clutch, and a pair of simple pumps you’ll swap smiles and seductive glances with handsome strangers over fizzy glasses of champagne.

Drew will keep you cozy, comfortable, and classy on Saturday as you spend the day donning your fixer-upper cap – painting a spare bedroom; toiling around the garden; lounging in the backyard with an ice cold glass of lemonade; or, even better, devouring a childish ice cream cone right at your kitchen counter.

As the weekend winds down, and Sunday arrives, slip on the Weathered shade with a breezy oatmeal colored fisherman’s knit sweater and ballerina flats, grab a cute boy, and spend the day trolling the local farmer’s market, or picking apples at an orchard. If you think it completely necessary, find a big pile of leaves and dive in – your Weekend Jeans want you to have a little innocent fun!

Are you ready to be a weekend warrior?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Old Navy for the pictures.

I love how the weekend jeans look with high heels...how hot! I've seen these on Katie Holmes so many times but never thought of them for myself until your post! And it is very tough to make it to Wednesday...I'll be glad when it's Saturday 4 pm! Thats when Im done work for the week...boo.

Although I rarely wear jeans I love the boyfriend's jeans style. Very comfortable! I prefer to wear them with ballerinas as pictured in the second photo:)

Wow nice jeans. Maybe I should start wearing them.

Leah said...

Yeah, boyfriend jeans are fun. You don't have to hold your breath to squeeze in like the skinny jeans. It's very acceptable to wear that in the tropics where it is hot all year round. I already have a couple of pairs from F21.

Jaime said...

Amen to weekend jeans!! :)

Taylor Sterling said...

Very cute from Old Navy. I am really likeing this look. Thanks for the sweet comments!

Justine said...

You can make them practical, though, by wearing some ankle boots with them with socks, or just regular boots that are slim enough to fit under the cuffed legs. A little avant-garde, but it's what I plan on doing!!

Old Navy, who would have thought!? I really like the bf jean, but was almost ready to put mine away for the winter... until I read this, of course! :)

All Women Stalker said...

Great post, as always!
I think the jeans look fabulous with heels!

Rina said...

Weekend jeans look amazing specially with heels! :))) Love your blog! XX

The Blonde Duck said...

The unfashionable duckie asks: Can we wear them rolled down? Our skinny little ankles are not so cute...

The Haute-Shopper said...

Love these... they just look so comfortable and are pretty versatile. I especially love them with blazers!

Maggie said...

Sigh... I just love the way your write, especially the chimney part :D

And the boyfriend jeans are just wonderful. I got myself two pairs for now and just love them paired with cozy sweaters, heels or even cute flats and cutsey tops. Very comfy and cute!

Emily said...

oh my, nothing is more classic and vital tha a pair of jeans! love them and old navy prices are always a plus.

Sherin said...

I love my bf jeans, and I think the cuffed ones look so good. A definite must have for this season. My aim is to put Leia in a pair of them this winter. Wish me good luck!

Femke said...

Oeww, Nice Jeans! And a Great post! Nice, nice, nice!

Sam said...

Boyfriend jeans look so darn comfy!!! I'm all for comfy - and chic too of course! XX

la petite fashionista said...

i FEEL your pain! wednesdays are my longest day (6 classes). so i'm always amazed to amke it through the day (usually with the help of lots of coffee!)

Mimi said...

those jeans look so comfortable- and cute! i can't wait to go 2 college! good luck with school next week. :D

Nikolett said...

Ah, I totally feel you! I'm in the middle of my first full school week and already feel exhausted. We are troopers! And I definitely need to get my hands on one of those pairs of jeans, they look so comfy! Can't wait to be a weekend warrior :) Cute post!

Kristin said...

Oh, I'm ready sister! I'm all about comfort on the weekends.

jayne said...

i've been contemplating bf jeans for awhile now, but the only place i would ever buy them from (GAP) is always out of my size!

wednesdays are my worst day too, but for another reason. i seem to be overly efficient this semester, so when I have virtually the entire freakin afternoon off on wed I have nothing to do and end up ruminating over my thoughts. i see to suffer like some absurd emotional breakdown every wednesday, its getting really irritating and tiring

Nubiasnonsense said...

Boyfriend jeans for fall are perfection! I need new ones

Nicole Marie said...

oh i need a pair!!

Amelia said...

Yay for making it to Weds! I know that feeling. I wish I felt good enough in pants to wear those. They look nice for the weekend.

Dina's Days said...

I agree with some of the other comments, I love the way they look with heels. My sister once cuffed her jeans in the winter, wore cute (not trashy) fish nets and heels and it looked super stylish. Target also had a nice little selection of bf jeans.

Misha said...

Oh you really nailed my emotions down there. It is a great acheivemnt to survive through the weeks as a uni student indeed! We deserve to spoil ourselves with great coffee or zesty cosmo's, or by making our boyfriends jeans look good with high heels :P

Stylestance said...

Oh yes, I have these in the Drew and they feel fantastic. In fall I'll be wearing them with wedge heels and flat boots. Perfect.

Patty Ann said...

yeah i love your writing, it makes me smile!!
