Dressed & Distressed

 I spent the long weekend escaping the cold and went to sunny Florida. The temperature was significantly warmer than NYC, and I was in heaven not having to wear a jacket in mid-January. Pretty much anything warmer than 30 degrees right now feels great to me. My most recent obsession are my J Brand ripped jeans. I’ve taken note of the fact that the this 90’s trend is progressively coming back into style. The beauty of ripped jeans are the endless types you can wear: skinny, straight, flare, mom, boyfriend, etc., and they can also be minimally ripped to as ripped as you like. I love ripped jeans because they can portray the image of |trendy and edgy| or |chic and classy| depending on what you choose to pair them with. You can have fun and accessorize with them by wearing high heels, a fedora or a statement necklace. Regardless of what approach you take, they always seem to convey effortless style. They’re super comfortable, and you can wear them in any given season or climate.

This past weekend I probably wore them a little too much, considering the fact that my boyfriend even pointed out I wore them all weekend…whoops. On the sunniest day there I wore them with my new fitted crop tank, a vintage flannel, and my beanie from Brandy Melville.

Another great plus about these beauties is that they’re so versatile and you can take them from a day outfit into night.

 Fun Fact: The jeans shown in this picture are actually my friend Kim’s {on the left} who inspired me to order these amazing pants and have a pair of my own. Thanks Kimmy!

I also got to spend some time at the beach this weekend. Even in ripped jeans & a flannel, I was one happy girl.






PS // If you don’t feel like spending money on a pair of ripped jeans, it’s also a fun DIY project for both shorts and jeans if you haven’t already tried {and super cost-effective}.
