The Perfect (Not Too) Distressed Jeans



Do you want the distressed look but you don't want torn, hole-y jeans?  Well, I have the perfect jeans for you! You all know how much I love jeans, I wear them everyday.  I definitely get my CPW out of them.  So naturally, when Nordstrom asked me to check out their denim department for the fall, it was a no brainer.  


I've had lots of clients and friends ask me if I knew of a pair of jeans that had the distressed look without the holes.  So when I came across these jeans, I knew they were the perfect solution!  


 Truthfully, my hole-y jeans are getting to be uncomfortable and I'm not sure why. For this reason, these jeans are quickly becoming my "go-to" jean.  



As for sizing, I ordered my normal size, and I think I should have sized down. I always tell my clients, the tighter the better. I can just imagine my clients rolling their eyes while they read this.  HAHAHA!  But, the nice thing about Nordstrom (and one of the main reasons I shop with them) is their costumer service.  I could take these back and trade them out for a smaller size without a problem.  If you can't go to the store, order both sizes and return one, because they have free shipping and free returns.  


Now we just need the cooler weather to stay around so I can wear my new fall/winter clothes.  Well, at least I'm prepared!

How to Add Color to Your Winter Wardrobe


I have this habit of wearing lots of grey and black in the fall/winter.  I don't think it's a bad thing, but I just really love color. I had been thinking about how I could incorporate more color into my fall/winter wardrobe when...


...I found this scarf and these earrings.  Bingo!  I'll add color with my accessories!  When I saw this scarf at Anthropologie, it stopped me in my tracks. And then, when I saw these amazing earrings at Elaine Turner, I knew I had a solution to my grey/black rut.  I just knew the two would be a winning combo. I feel like I could throw on either one of these accessories with my grey/black outfits for a punch of color. 


I also like these combinations:
