Distressed Jeans

Distressed Jeans

Hi Everyone!  Today I’m showing off my favorite pair of distressed jeans!  I’ve loved this style of jeans since they debuted in the 1980s, yes THE 80s!  Back then, it was the “in or cool thing” to distress your own pair. Now, clothing companies take the liberty to distress jeans offering them in different styles and washes!

I paired these jeans with a fun blouse that ties in the front;  both  items  were purchased from ZARA.com  (here too).  I’ve also linked a few favs from other affordable  brands below.  Be sure to comment about this post or ask any fashion related questions you may have below!

Wear scarves as an inexpensive way to amp up your look.  Available in multiple prints and colors; style them in various knots around the neck or on your wrist as a bracelet.

Pretty in Pink!

Pretty in Pink!

Hi Everyone!  Today’s post showcases an awesome J Crew wool suit scored on Ebay this past summer. This suit debuted a few seasons ago, however it’s still a knock out!

Pretty in Pink

First, I love the vibrant pink color, a difficult color to find in a suit.  This one definitely turns heads. Secondly, the fit is amazing! I usually wear a size 2 and 4 in J Crew clothing, the only brand that gives me “that tailored” feel and look.

Pretty In Pink

The seller offered the suit brand new, a size 4 blazer and size 6 trousers. I contemplated at first, and then finally said to myself, “what the heck, just go for it”. I’m sure glad I did! Despite being a size 6, the pants still fit nicely, giving just a hint of sag, which I like at times (the tomboy in me…hehe!)

I styled the suit as separates too; check out how below. Click links to view products on retailers websites for purchase.
