When I was a teenager my mother NEVER let me wear ripped jeans. NEVER! EVER! She had fashion rules that she made me abide by. Minimal black (because she didn’t like the color black worn on young girls) and no distressed denim. It’s funny because as I dress Summer I kind of stick to these same rules. I don’t put her in much black and all. I like neutrals and brights when I dress her. Guess that rule got passed down the line! However, her rule of no ripped jeans got tossed out the window once I moved out. Probably one of my biggest go to trends, can’t live without, synonymous with my look is a distressed pair of jeans. I love that you can dress them down or dress them up depending on the occasion. Throw them on with flip flops for errands or match them w/a flowy shirt and high wedges for date night like I did here. I often think my friends and family must place secret bets on whether I’ll have ripped jeans on the next time they see me. What can I say? I just feel good in them! In a future post I will feature my favorite ripped jeans. Stay tuned for that!
For date night I couldn’t wait to wear these new wedges by Jeffrey Campbell. They have a nice height to them and can be worn for work or going out. The neutral color and cut out details are my favorite.
The big trend this season is off the shoulder tops. Loved the dark navy blue color of this one and the pretty eyelet detail. Original price was $90 and I got it for $50 at Saks Off 5th. LOVE this store for getting great pieces deeply discounted. They don’t offer free return shipping but if you have a store close by you can return in store within 30 days I believe.
I finished off the look with this new gold layered necklace. I tend to favor gold jewelry and layered or chunky pieces. This one has a pretty sparkle to it and really pops in person.
What are your favorite date night pieces to wear?
