Distressing and Stripes

It’s been a little while since I’ve had a review or outfit post…life got a bit busy again (as it has a tendency to), especially for my hubby who’s been working mad long hours at work and unable to help with the photography portion of my posts! On top of that, I fell pretty ill with a flu and a bit of laryngitis so I think it doesn’t even need to be said that I wasn’t feeling all that glamorous enough for a shot anyway. Great timing, huh? Anyway, I’m back at work and my voice is still quite raspy, but I was able to employ a coworker to help me get some quick snaps for a Friday post! This one is kind of a preview to an upcoming denim review I have coming up for my own blog here, my third I’ve done apart from Denimology, for the 7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion High Waist Skinny in Icy Black 2, which was graciously sent to me by the brand when I inquired about another beautiful style, the Slim Illusion High Waist Skinny in Ultimate Icy Black! I still might have to scour eBay for that one…(I can’t resist, it’s just gorgeous) but I am loving this other pair! The high waist isn’t uncomfortably high (high waists have been growing on me a little bit), the stretch is comfortably amazing and true to 7FAM’s word, they have not stretched out a tad. They didn’t come cuffed but I love the extra accent that cuffing them gives them! I always like distressed denim in the summertime and these have a unique, simple slash across each knee instead of the all-around distressing we often see floating around the market. I love them all, but these I am particularly fond of right now! Stay tuned for a more in-depth official review.

I am wearing them with a Wilt tank I snagged super cheap off Ideel a few weeks ago which is so nice and flowy for the strange hot and muggy tropical weather California got when we finally got a bit of rain last month (although it is REALLY not even close to enough). The shoes my sister grabbed in London and passed on to me…they are by Schuh and I love the look of them. I wear them a lot! I also often wear the A. Kurtz corduroy military hat I’m wearing here a lot…and of course, I’m once again enjoying my custom key necklace from La Clá. It’s such a fun accessory! I wrote about them last year…read the blog post here.
