Ripped Jeans 2 Ways and a Link Up!

Uncategorized

Blazer:  Marshalls (old) // Jeans:  Miss Me // Tank:  Ralph Lauren // Sandals: Marshalls // Sunnies:  Gucci // Necklace:  Macy’s // Bangles:  Lilly in Pink
I feel like this week is the wearing things more than one
way week.  Yesterday’s post featured a
dress that I just slightly altered from last year.  Today’s post I’m going to show you how to
wear ripped jeans both dressed up and down. 
It’s so strange when I think about dressing up jeans because I remember
there being a time where jeans were inappropriate for certain occasions even if
you did try and dress them up and nowadays I see them everywhere.  Ripped jeans are a little trickier BUT I was
willing to take on the challenge I gave myself.  Also, once you’re done reading this post if you want to see how I styled these jeans last year for the first time ever, just click here!
Ok, so if you know me, you know that I LOVE the color
pink.  I think it’s quite the unhealthy
love (actually not to me) but that’s what happens when you don’t allow your
daughter to wear pink as a child haha.  I
was a model looking baby with very little pink. 
I wore pencil skirts before I could even walk.  With that being said, my love for pink is now
a little over the top, but that’s ok.  I
wanted to dress up these jeans so badly with my pink blazer.  I wasn’t sure if it was going to work but it
definitely did (in my opinion).  Since
the blazer is hot pink (which makes a statement by itself) and very casual
looking it doesn’t look like too much of a contrast with the ripped jeans.  The taupe sandals with minimal neck bling and
big black sunglasses make for the perfect combination of dressing up without
going over the top.  I made sure my
accessories were to a minimum because the ripped jeans with a hot pink blazer
was already enough.  Plus, you can’t see
it too much but in the holes of the jeans there’s fabric in the American Flag
pattern.

Jeans:  Miss Me // Tank:  Ralph Lauren // Sneakers:  Converse Chuck Taylor’s // Sweatshirt:  Stella McCartney for Adidas // Sunglasses:  from Poland
For the dressed down look I wanted to really contrast by
wearing my favorite Stella McCartney for Adidas sweatshirt and my trusty Chuck
Taylors aka Converse.  I love this
sweatshirt because the arms are almost like a bubble while still having a body
hugging waist.  You can see my original
post about athletic wear in the fashion world here.  I wear this sweatshirt two different
ways.  Anyway, I put on my trusty
Chucks.  These are what I like to call my
racecar shoes because they are perfect for driving.  I don’t like to wear these if I know I’m
going to be walking a lot because they’re flat and I end up in pain towards the
end of the day.  I feel like this is the
perfect lounging around the house kind of outfit, or going outside for a
walk.  The jeans substitute for Yoga
pants which I only wear for the gym.  I’m
not sure why but I just can’t bring myself to wear them outside the gym or when
I wear them as PJ’s.  I used to wear
sweatshirts a lot in college, so I try to stay away from them now that I’m a “grown
up.”  I have a fashion confession to
make.  Back in the day I used to wear a
lot of sweatpants and sweatshirts in college AND I was a fashion minor.  Those 8am classes when I had to commute were
brutal!  That’s my defense haha.  However my hair and makeup was done 90% of
the time so at least I got something right!
That concludes my styling ripped jeans post.  I think I did a pretty alright job especially
since I’m not a jeans type of person.  I
really don’t wear jeans a lot.  That’s
what happens when you’re bottom heavy. 
Jeans are a battle in the fitting room. 
They are either too tight around your thighs and butt and just right
around the waist, or they are gigantor around your waist (causing everyone to
get a free show down your backside area) and just perfect on your thighs.  This pair however fits perfectly.  Thank you Miss Me jeans for being awesome
haha!
