Distressed Denim, Handbags & More




Iced Coffee from Tradewind Coffee Co
Hello, hello my reader friends. Today I'm sharing a couple of shots from "what I wore" over the last couple of weeks.  This compilation and hodgepodge is my life right now; casual, a bit hurried and as always full of mini-adventures along the way. If I had participated in a challenge to style some of the same items to make several outfits, this purse and these jeans would be my picks...for this week anyway. 
I am loving olive green right now and I think it pairs so nicely with blush pink, purple hues, white, black and the list goes on. So when a friend passed on this bag I was excited to get using it. (See links to other options below.)

Let's start with that olive green I love so much: Distressed jeans. If you purchase a pair of jeans with the knees already frayed, plan on the holes expanding squat by squat. When you bend at the knees, the few attached threads struggle to maintain their grip. Before you know it, you're strutting around town with gaping holes at the knees. I get many a stare, but I'm not ready to toss these favorites just yet. 

These lovelies were picked up from Marisa Jill's, a local boutique I drop in on from time to time. I feel I must mention that other than a few accessory additions, there is nothing new share as it's time to replace the boy's athletic shoes. Four boys. Oh help us! 

Trifecta Bracelet Set and Be Joyful


Onto the Purse...

Shades are by Maui Jim and were purchased at Costco



 The Last Days of Warmth??


Once again, this purse makes an appearance and goes great with a thrown together outfit. I had to grab my accessories and go!

Speaking of this outfit, I'm confident that it will be my last warm weather get up while traipsing around Georgia. However, next week is my hubby and I's scheduled and first cruise to the Bahamas. So those of you in cooler climates please bear with me as I continue to live as if I'm enjoying summer. ;)

Alternative Option from Altar'd State Sale: Sweet Heart Dress 

The shoes and the jewelry are the only items purchased within the last few months, while the dress and the kimono vest were purchased last year at Altar'd State.

  


Well my reader friends, are any of you still hanging in warmer weather and what are your go to accessories or staples right now?

As always, I love to hear from you!

  6. Chrissy, I am loving the super distressed denim look. The whole outfit is just my speed. And I totally have given up on going full fall fashion as it is still hitting the 70 degree mark most days. So you just go right on enjoying the warm weather. Thanks for linking up with me. This post will be featured tomorrow as a reader favorite on my new link up!

  7. I've been loving the distressed look lately. Which is quite funny to me, because I always thought I'd never wear it!!

    1. Well, me too. There are still those who make jokes about whether or not I actually paid for pants with holes in them. lol. That's ok. We just keep wearing what we like, right? :)

  8. I love your distressed denim! The color is so cute, and could easily pair with a wide variety of outfits. I definitely need a piece like this for fall.
