American Eagle Distressed Hem Jeans

American Eagle distressed hem jeans are one of the latest Instagram obsessions.  I thought I'd give them a try when I saw several of my favorite fashionistas and friends wearing them.  And seriously?  I love them.  I do have to be careful when putting them on that my feet don't tear the distressed hem.  

My friends and I had a girls weekend recently and I wore them.  One of my friends posted this pic on Facebook and one of my FB friends commented "Amanda can't you and your little friends afford jeans without holes?"  I love her!  And I still love my holey jeans!

 These are some of my best friends!  Check them out on Instagram!  From left to right - Dinah @stylishprofessor, Mandy @musingsofashopaholicmama , Apryl @prylb and Ann @teacherannie

I've linked the jeans here.  I'm wearing the high-rise, but there's also a mid-rise.

Obviously my #squad likes these jeans, too!

I thought my friend Dinah's looked so cute with her blush Adidas!

Blazing a Trail in a Spring Staple

Blazing a trail in a Spring staple - the blazer!  I loooove blazers!  They are perfect for this time of year when it is cool in the morning and warm later in the day.  A blazer makes jeans and a t-shirt look classy!  It can also be a great pop of color or a statement piece.  Here are a few of my favorite blazers this Spring.

*Note - I haven't blogged in a couple months due to putting our house on the market, selling it, and buying/building a new one.  It's been crazy, but I hope to have more time to blog again now!*

 Blazer and scarf are both last year's Cabi spring line.  Bag is Noonday Collection.

 Airport selfie!  This amazingly comfortable sailor blazer and red cargo pants are this Spring Cabi. I seriously wear these rose gold Adidas ALL THE TIME! Initial necklace is LeBoutiqueShop.

 Blazer and top are last year Cabi.  Distressed hem jeans are American Eagle Outfitters and are currently buy one, get one free! This amazing bag is vintage Noonday Collection.

I love how this J. Crew Factory striped blazer pairs with this floral Cabi top!

 Blush and camo is one of my favorite combos!  This blazer is from Nordstrom Rack last year and the camo pants are from Ross!

A white blazer is such a versatile piece!  I wear mine all the time!  Maybe I should do a blog post just featuring my white blazer!  This one was my birthday gift (to myself) 2 years ago from Anthro. Dress is last year Cabi.  These shoes were Charlotte Russe from a few years ago and literally fell apart as I was wearing them this time.  So sad!

What is your favorite blazer?
