Well, not really in distress, but this title does have a double meaning. I have been trying to style some distressed jeans. I have had them for awhile, but have just not been able to find anything that looked right with them.
After doing some Pinterest research, I figured out that I should probably go for the slouchy look.
I have been searching the local stores for the past few weeks looking for tops that would go with the jeans, and finally kept a few, but I still don’t think I have hit it quite right. Doesn’t mean the perfect top is not out there, and doesn’t mean I won’t wear the jeans with what I did find, but just haven’t had that “I FOUND IT” moment yet.
But since I keep you in the loop with the good, the bad, and the in-between, here is what I have so far:
As you can see, what I thought was the perfect slouchy top made me look like a beige cow, so I tried to fix it up.
Still trying my style copy from Pinterest, I went with gray:
Now I looked like a gray cow, so tried the same vest:
Still kind of look like a gray cow, but with a with vest on 🙂 🙂 🙂
Okay, none of these are perfect, but I got tired of trying stuff on. Another reason I am “distressed” is that I absolutely had no luck in making the purple shirt with the flowy sleeves look better; in fact, if anything, it looked worse.
After seeing these photos, I realized that the color is not good on me, the neckline is not right, and the cute sleeves are not particularly flattering. Anybody want a purple shirt? 🙂
So, I am “distressed.” Just can’t seem to make any great outfits. Ever had one of those days? OF COURSE! We all do. Just want you to know you are in good company!
I’ll be back….hopefully with a great outfit!
