Distressed

DSC_7615
I always like when people pair jeans with a bit of distress with a fancy top and I thought this balance was perfect for dinner with Tieka of Selective Potential when I was back in Michigan a couple weeks ago for work. I wore this to work with black pants and changed into more cozy jeans before dinner. I forgot I had these but after digging through drawers I re-discovered them. More photos are over at Delightful Dozen, go check 'em out!

Love how you've styled her top! I'd scoop up that jacket in a second if I saw it in-stores, too.

And as always, my eye goes straight to Merl's necklace on you - one of my favorite pieces of jewelry you own!

Happy holidays, lady! :)

I really love that pinkish-wine color in the jacket and shoes. I need to get some jeans that fit that well! You look stunning in them.
