I’m a skinny jean lover, so I was a bit surprised when bootcut jeans started to trend. But, I’m here for them! They’re actually a nice departure from the skinnies. And last month I found a perfect pair.

Like most women, I kinda hate shopping for jeans. My dilemma is they’re too long and/or I have gaping at the waist. But whether you’re a size 2 or 20, it just seems difficult to find the one.

But these Denizen bootcut jeans from Target fit perfectly. No tailoring needed and less than $30!

When and why did you start thrift shopping?
I have been into thrift shopping forever. Growing up it was a tradition to spend Saturdays shopping with my mother and grandmother. They would take me everywhere from malls, department stores, estate sales to thrift stores. Thrift shopping rubbed off on me naturally.

What three words would you use to describe your style?
Vintage. Classy. Cute.

How did you style your outfit {above}?
I thrifted this Ralph Lauren shirt for $2.98. It is a young boy’s shirt and the sleeves were way too short, but I knew I would wear it rolled up in a preppy style. The suspenders were thrifted for $1.98 from the men’s section and I purchased the skirt on sale at Target. The inspiration for this outfit came from seeing the suspenders, so I built upon them. Looking back I guess I was channeling Steve Urkel.
