Wearing those Skinnies

Hello ladies! So good news is that last week I finally got around  to sorting through a pile of jeans that I've been meaning to get rid of/donate. Do you ever find that when you're clearing out your closet you end up saying, "well hmmm maybe I will wear this again, so better keep this, just in case?" When really it's been a year since you last wore it? Yeah well, that's me most of the time and why I end up keeping things a lot longer than I should! 




I was actually looking to buy 2-3 different pairs of jeans, but only ended up finding one that I liked and fit rather well. As you can tell from my posts, I'm a huge fan of the distressed denim look. What is your take on distressed denim? Do you love it, hate it, or  just prefer plain denim? 


Forever 21 also has a rather large selection of distressed denim to choose from at a reasonable price. However, I always find it hard to find what you're looking for and you really have to give yourself enough time to sort through everything. That is if you are serious about finding that item that you came there to buy! 


I paired this look with a white/checked short sleeve cotton shirt and a orange/red cross-body bag, while layering it with a dainty necklace and a much longer turquoise stone pendant, to create a lovely layered look. This outfit is definitely great for a laid-back dinner or a movie to running those errands. Which reminds me, I have a few that I've been meaning to get done! 


Have a great Thursday ladies:-).

  3. Gorgeous! I love this look on you, Elizabeth! I too finally parted with a bunch of jeans I kept entirely too long, but it was only because they no longer fit. Haha. If they had still fit they'd probably still be in my possession. I can't pull off distressed denim as well as you, so, I tend to be more of a plain 'ole denim person. And oh yes, Forever 21 is quite the adventure when you are looking for something in particular! :)

    Hope all is well, Elizabeth!

  7. You look so pretty hun :) These white ripped jeans are lovely and together with the plaid shirt it makes a really classic casual look. I am so bad at giving up clothes too- I'm always like 'I'll wear it again', but then I don't.

  8. We sound similar with regard to the whole 'let's hold on to this just in case' thing haha - considering I live in a fairly cold country, I have far too many pairs of shorts in my wardrobe haha :) I love your layered necklaces and the distressed white denim jeans look fantastic with the shirt, I love each and every one of your outfits Elizabeth - you never seem to put a foot wrong! :)

  13. You look great in these distressed jeans. They look like they were made just for you. Glad you got them on sale too! That's always a great feeling. I like both plain and distressed denim and I am a total clothes hoarder I must admit. I tend to keep stuff instead of sort through old stuff and end up with a mess of a closet...eek! You paired this outfit with this bright orange purse perfectly. Super cute.

  17. I am def someone who holds onto things. We are getting ready to move so I recently went through my closet and had to get rid of so many of the things I've been holding onto for so long! It was painful, haha!
