 Happy Monday friends! Welcome back. Hope you had a great weekend. I want to begin by saying thank you. Thank you for all the nice comments, emails, suggestions and for just being part of a really awesome audience! It truly is satisfying to know how much you enjoy my weekly endeavors and I sincerely appreciate your honesty. I am thrilled and excited and super happy that you guys make this all happen for me. Without you this blog would not be! Thank you again for making this journey of mine so much fun. Stay tuned for a fantastic giveaway I have on the works just for you, my lovely readers!

Today’s style post took a lot of thinking. Why you may ask? Well, because I feel like I’m kinda in the middle of a style genre conundrum. I like to think that I dress my age. I don’t want to be that lady that thinks she’s still 20something… Distressed denim is huge today and I wasn’t sure I could pull it off. After much thought I went ahead and bought these. And I absolutely love them!

I decided to wear them with the long cardigan to kinda dress them up a bit. What I didn’t want was to end up with a grundgy look. Don’t think I can pull that one off nor do I want to… If you decide to get these exact pair you have to size down. They are stretchy and they run BIG! As for the cardigan, man, this one is awesome! I will definitely be layering it all summer with other pieces including a trip to the beach! 

BTW, in case you didn’t notice I cut 5 inches off my tresses. And no, I didn’t cry! 🙂

So, what did you think? Yay or nay to this denim look for me? I’m all ears… 

Have a fantastic week ahead!

  • While there might be some trends best left to the youth, I don’t think distressed denim has to be one of them, especially when you style it in such a polished way. Nearly any age can participate in a trend, it all depends on how you style it.
