boyfriend jeans

i never thought i would post a blog about doing it yourself. but i’ve been inspired lately by my friend Jess, who rocks a relaxed fall style. and, i’m trying to be more resourceful and “shop” from my own closet.


  • a pair of jeans (if you’re like me, you have a handful of jeans that are just a bit too short—those work perfect!)
  • scissors

the jeans: i haven’t worn these flare jeans since i discovered skinnys, and they were also just a tad too short from washing. i never threw them out because i love the wash and distressed look.

i simply cut 6 inches off the bottom of the pant legs (you can see that i didn’t even worry about cutting straight) and then rolled them up a couple times. voila! these jeans look great with heels.

let me know if you try this! what’s your favorite DIY project?
