When bohemian met denim.

 White ShopJoellenLove crochet top, White thrifted woven belt, Dark indigo gifted INDI Custom bootcut jeans, Dark brown gifted Swellmayde envelope clutch, Gold Sneakpeeq bracelets by CCSkye, Gold F21 rings, Brown DIY hardware box-braided necklace, Grey suede Jeffrey Campbell Foxy heels.

These have to be my most comfiest bootcut jeans in my closet right now.  I love how I feel extra tall in them especially with heels and they fit like a glove, especially the length (super important for me not being THAT tall).  I had a great opportunity to collaborate with INDI Custom Jeans, an online custom denim retailer, to design my own pair!  The process was super easy and user friendly.  With the help of the loovely Becca, in charge of Marketing for INDI and also a fashion blogger (Free Honey), I designed my own pair of jeans in less than 10 minutes! :)

I decided to pair the bootcut jeans with a simple top, but with detail in the fabric (crochet) and especially in the accessories -- gold&pretty jagged and starfish bracelets and a brown leather envelope clutch gifted by Swellmayde (thank you so much Aimee!).  I also worked very hard recently on this DIY project..a hardware box-braided necklace, thanks to Honestly WTF for the great idea! :)  To top off the outfit and for extra height, wore my Jeffrey Campbell Foxy platform heels.

Also, enjoy some photos below I took when I visited the INDI Office in Emeryville! :)
They had fashion mood boards each with a fun theme.  This one stood out to me -- MILPH which stands for Mom Is Looking Pretty Hot.  Loved the inspirational photos, including the pretty model turned actress Krysten Ritter.
My boyfriend wasn't left out when he came along.  They also had a mood board dedicated to men's wear.  Lovee the dark wash for guys and the fun colored/patterned dress shirts.
I love how at INDI I had the chance to feel like my own designer when it came to picking out which pockets or certain wash to use for my custom jeans.  Ended up picking the pieced arch (as I've heard it makes your butt area look so much better!, lol).
To get a pair of your own custom-made jeans, be sure to visit www.indicustom.com and follow the easy steps to start designing your own jeans with a custom style and fit :).

Hope you enjoyed this post on jeans!!  Just wanted to also say, thanks so much to indiDenim for the collab and letting me visit your beautiful office! :) I rarely wear jeans myself, but definitely recommend trying out this process of making your own, makes me want to wear more :).   
I hope you lovelies had a great weekend and thank you so soo much again for all your support on my blog!!  Would love also, if you haven't yet, give some <3'in to my Facebook page below!  Off to now visit your inspirational and beautiful blogs! :)
♥, Kathleen.

Oh those jeans look so good on ya! I am not so much of a jeans gal (mostly because I seriously can't find one pair that suits my body frame!). One day, I'm sure I'll find that perfect pair, and when I do, I'll be sure to stock up! Gotta check out indiDenim for sure!

Kathleen, those jeans are SO flattering on you! And I have the same H&M white leatherette bracelet (bought it while I was in L.A. hehe). The clutch by Aimee is super cute, too. Loving the 1970's vibe on you, girl!

Those shoes are incredible! And I very much appreciate the post purely on jeans - they are such a hard item to get right! Nearly everyone has several pairs but the 'perfect pair' is always elusive...
The jeans you're wearing look pretty darn perfect to me though :)
