Distressed Denim

Lately it feels as though every time I get dressed, I’m reaching for some form of ripped jeans whether it’s my new high-rise skinnies or my light-wash boyfriend fits. And we all know fashion’s enslavement to destroyed denim culminates in the summer staple of cutoffs. So here’s my roundup of some exquisitely demolished denim.

Hip Haul Hooray

Graphic of Hip Haul HoorayAnother rainy day, another shopping trip. I don’t know about you babes, but when the weather outside gets dim, I head indoors… to the mall. Thus was the case this weekend. My friend Bekah & I had planned to lay out & become bronzed babes this past Saturday, but when we awoke & saw the gloom outside, we reluctantly changed our plans.

We started off at a consignment shop downtown, then hit the boutique next door, and finally headed to a mall because I’m desperate to find a pair of funky bell bottoms. Unfortunately, the search for bells was futile as we got massively distracted by crop tops #summerproblems. Here’s a look at the pieces I was focused enough to purchase!
