I spent a significant amount of my childhood in flared jeans. They were always too long too; my mum refused to buy anything that actually fit because I would grow out of it "too quickly". I never grew quickly, so my jeans would drag along the floor wherever I went. The hems would end up frayed to oblivion. We're not just talking some rough edges - chunks of denim literally clung by a thread by the bottom of my jeans. My mum would always shake her head and have to buy me new jeans, all before I'd even grown out of them.

I'll be sure to take better care of these jeans. Though they're already frayed at the waist so what's a little more damage if I do mess them up a bit? I went for a whole raw hem theme, pairing the jeans with my top with frayed detailing. I also wore my leather jacket, which I do actually put on properly IRL but you gotta do what you gotta do for the #OOTD photos.

(Also there's no significance to these photos being taken in Bedford Square Gardens, I just wanted to make a gif with words but couldn't come up with any aside from the location.)
