Heavily Distressed

I’ve featured distressed jeans before on A Pinch of Lovely, but today, I’m taking distressed denim to a whole new level even for me! The whole destroyed jean look always seemed a little too edgy for me, but I’ve teamed up with YMI Jeans today to style distressing my way – by adding a little prep in its step. By adding classic stripes, chic shearling and ladylike lace-up flats, I’m making destroyed denim a little more – me.

Both my jeans and faux fur vest are from the affordable and on-trend YMI Jeans brand. For a fraction of the designer jeans cost, I was able to get BOTH a new pair of jeans and vest from the line which is super convenient when you’re wanting to try out trends you’re unsure of or experimenting with in your personal style. Kind of like me and the destroyed denim. I have to say, now I’m a big fan of these jeans and am actually wearing them quite a lot! I couldn’t even keep them under wraps before this post went up without posting them all over Instagram!

I know there is sort of a lot of texture going on in this outfit, but keeping it down to a neutral palette really helps all the fringe, distressing and fur come together along with the stripes. And of course, my go-to, favorite pair of flats for fall were a no-brainer for a day in the French Quarter. 

Fit information:

The sizing for YMI is in teens, so I went with a Size 5. I sized up a half-size in the flats, and everything else is in normal sizes!
