Perfectly Distressed

I felt like Goldilocks in my search for the the perfect pair of distressed denim. First pair: perfect fit, but not distressed enough. Second pair: perfect fit but so distressed I didn’t feel like I was wearing anything. Alas, a pair that fit like a glove with a balanced amount of distress.

Where did I find my perfect pair, you ask? At Pretty Reckless, right in my Southie neighborhood. Last week I hosted an event at the boutique. I had the opportunity to shop with the few event-goes who weathered the crazy snow and wind to join me. Once we made our selections, a mini-fashion show ensued in the fitting rooms (duh!). When I stepped out in the pair, the oohs & ahhs I got from the ladies assured me I had found the one. And the stretch in the jeans was icing on the cake!

But before leaving the store, my sister in law surprised me with this gorgeous wide-brim hat. I was wearing it on and off throughout the event and couldn’t make up my mind if I needed it. So thank you Leah for helping me with the decision that I do indeed need such a hat. This is an instant upgrade from the black pom pom beanie I have been sporting as of late.

All right, that’s it from me. I’m headed to the big apple shortly!

Outfit Details:

Wide-Brim Hat: Pretty Reckless, $30.

Stone Necklace: Covet, $18. But since I have an account at the store, it was kind of like getting it for free! For something similar, I am loving tiered crystal pendant from Bauble Bar, $38.

Tissue Turtleneck: C&C California from Bloomingdale’s Outlet (old). J.Crew carries a similar style on sale for $24.99. Use code SWEETSALE and save 40% thru 3/1.
