The Perfect, Budget-Friendly Summer Jeans

by - Monday, July 16, 2012

My Mission: To find the perfect pair of (1) white jeans, (2) mid-rise and (3) bootcut, for (4) under $50. Something to wear with that summery, nautical look I posted about yesterday (and here, and here, forever and ever, amen).

It wasn't easy wading through the Sea of Skinnies, but I unearthed a few budget bootcuts (sidebar: I'm always hesitant to say "budget", because one person's "budget" is another's "bankrupting horror of extreme spendytude" - so let's just stick with "under $50") in various widths:

A hint about white jeans, which can be challenging to those of us with any sort of hips going on *raises hand*: try having the front pockets removed and sewn shut for a more streamlined look. It also avoids that phantom pocket outline that thinner (i.e., summer weight) white jeans tend to get.

What do you think?

Anyone else have an outfit or clothing item you'd like me to track down? Feel free to leave it in the comments or drop me an email at ipickpretty AT gmail, etc.

(Not that I know what I'm doing here, of course, but I'm extremely skilled at *acting* like I think what I know what I'm doing.) (Law school taught me that, if little else.) (Parentheses.)
