Today I'd like to share a little story with you. A story of how these shorts came to be...
Forever 21 top and shoes; American Eagle pants turned shorts
When I was 16, a cute boy had asked me out. I wanted new denim for the date, so I made a trip to American Eagle to buy my first AE jeans. The style was actually called "boyfriend", which I found pretty funny since I was buying them for a first date...Either way, they were my first AE jeans and were amazing. I give them credit for starting my undying love for AE's denim...
Over the years, these jeans have managed to stay in my wardrobe. Even when other jeans have passed their prime and been donated, I've kept my "boyfriend" jeans. Maybe it had to do with the fact my ex and I were able to make it over 5 years together and they were a keepsake from our first date. I had an emotional attachment to these jeans.
When we broke up late last year, I didn't want to part with these pants just yet. They had managed to stick with me for 5 long years and they still had some life left in them. So I updated them. I cut the legs off the pants and turned them into distressed denim shorts. And guess what? They're now my absolute favourite.
Coming up on 6 years in my closet, these denim babies have been through thick and thin with me. They're still holding on strong and hopefully it'll be another few years before we have to part for good.
Do you have anything in your closet that you've held onto forever?
