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! ๐Ÿ™‚
