The Girlfriend Jean – Gap x

Posted on: February 15, 2015 by Yummo Mummo

I was putting on a pair of Gap jeans the other day and it dawned on me, I have had those jeans for 7 years! I wore them before baby #3, and as much as I am doing the happy dance that I even fit back into these jeans after baby #3 (the third one really did my body in), it was time to update my wardrobe with a new funky pair of jeans. As always, my budget is tight as tight gets, so I needed to find some fun new jeans that wouldn’t break the bank.  Gap were having a 30% discount the day I shopped so I walked out of the store with a $70 pair of jeans for $53, Happy Days!
May I present the Gap 1969 Girlfriend Jeans. Every chick needs her girlfriends!
These jeans are 87% cotton, 12% polyester and 1% Spandex (I heart Spandex). So, what do you think of YummoMummo’s new jeans?


I can totally see these jeans easily being dressed up or down.  I have paired the jeans here with my striped t-shirt and leopard print slip on sneakers (see my post on “Mixing Patterns” for more inspiration HERE). More ways to wear these jeans could include:

  • Imagine strappy heels, a white jacket and this striped shirt (shown);
  • Be inspired by cute red ballet flats, a crisp white t-shirt and a statement necklace; or
  • Feel fabulous in a button down shirt, some statement earrings, and matching flats for a casual Friday at the office. Boom.



So I am excited to be able to have a lot of fun with my new Gap 1969 Girlfriend jeans heading into the warmer months here in California. Say hello to my new favorite jeans!

HERE  is the link to the 1969 Girlfriend jeans at the Gap site. If you decide to make them your new favorite jeans, I’d love to see a picture of you rocking them.
