Flare Jeans & A Boho Top

For the longest time, I cringed whenever I saw 70s-inspired clothing. I grew up in the 70s but never really liked the style (maybe because my mom pretty much decided what I got to wear…). But then I somehow became intrigued by flare pants. So several months ago I dragged Andy to Bloomingdale’s on a date night to “do some research.” Unfortunately (or fortunately), I fell in love with the first pair of flare jeans I tried on. Unfortunately, they were not cheap, even though there was a denim event going on at the time, and the jeans were on sale.

They are long and didn’t quite work with my fall/winter boots. But they do work with my higher sandals and clogs, and I can see myself wearing them all the time in spring and summer.

I recently wore the jeans with a white Boho blouse and a heart scarf to the Bacon and Beer Classic at Levi’s Stadium (where the Super Bowl took place just a few weeks ago). To make the outfit more fun, I carried my colorful Desigual bag.

I have never paid that much for a pair of jeans. However, I love them. They are incredibly soft and comfortable (in fact, I read one online review where someone was complaining that they are too soft! I would never complain that jeans are too soft!). Considering that, over the years, I bought quite a few items of clothing that I ended up hardly wearing (because they were not perfect), I think spending more money on jeans that work and you will get a lot of wear out of is a good investment and worth it in the long run.

Andy was a judge at the event, and it was fun that we had VIP access to the field.
