Farm fresh: distressed denim flares, woolly turtleneck, and tassel-embellished scarf

I haven’t yet got my hands on the cropped flare jeans I’ve been jonesing for, dear readers…but I did finally answer the siren-call of a seriously distressed pair!!  πŸ™‚

If you had told me a couple of years ago that I’d find denim that looks like it might have tangled with some farm machinery appealing…well, I probably would have laughed you right out of the room!!  But once again, I must quote my favourite quote when it comes to all things fashion-related:  “Never say never!!”

I’ve been thinking for a while that jeans like these would be perfect with summery tank tops and strappy sandals…but of course once I had this pair (from American Eagle Outfitters) home with me, waiting for warmer weather wasn’t going to happen; I needed to wear them right now.

So how does a savvy stylista compensate for all that extra “ventilation” when it’s wet and chilly outside?? By combining the beat-up denim with booties, an oversized woolly turtleneck, and multiple wraps of a tassel-trimmed scarf, naturally!!  The only thing this outfit is missing??  You guessed it…my favourite soy chai latte!! Starbucks drive-though, here I come!!

    Ahhh Monika—you are so like me. I questioned the distressed denim thinking how silly….but, of course, I have a pair now too! I just wore them last night with tights under them (among many other layers)! Love the hair! jodie
