Maybe it had something to do with the J.Crew's June Style guide that featured the light blue denim in so many pictures? In any case, I had to stop at J.Crew this weekend to make a return. I usually look for jeans elsewhere but I have been happy with my midrise toothpicks, so I thought I will take look.
Well, it was still not to be. The Toothpick jean in Northport wash turned out to be too medium blue for what I wanted and Toothpick jean in distressed Cone® denim was too baggy in the hips and did nothing for my butt. I have confirmed that I only like the fit of the midrise toothpicks and that the regular toothpicks fit differently and not so great on my body.
There was nothing else that I wanted to try on at J.Crew, so I ended up at Nordstrom, where I tried on at least ten other pairs of light wash jeans. After trying on a few pairs, I knew I wanted boyfriend cut with no distressing. I have finally decided on boyfriend cut Paige jeans, which (lucky me) happened to be on sale.

Since I bought a pair of light wash jeans that I thought I would never do again, I decided to try another never-to-be-repeated-again look. I am talking about the denim-on-denim, could I actually pull it off?

Back to my Paige jeans. The back view is OK, nothing to write home about, but I think this is a case with the every boyfriend cut, so I am fine with it.

The front has a nice slouch without too much bagginess or low crotch.

I plan to wear the jeans with a variety of white tops. And, although this is nothing fashion-blog-worthy, this is how I like it the best.
That's all folks!
Do you wear light wash jeans?
What do you think of denim on denim?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
