Denim & Blue

Elementz Blazer, Top (similar), Denim, Ann Marino Heels, Clutch (similar), J. Simpson SunniesRussian Red MAC Lipstick

I've recently been obsessing over blazers so anytime I see one for a good price, I snatch it. I purchased this one from Goodwill for only $3.69! I was ecstatic when I saw it because it still had its $60 tag on from Macy's. I love this one because it is really lightweight and I can wear it in the Florida heat without dripping of sweat. I used to not be a fan of Goodwill because of the smell they all have and I always felt dirty when I leave there (I still do) but I promise you can find some really good pieces in there if you look for them!
These shorts used to be boyfriend jeans but instead I turned them into one of my favorite summer denim go-to's! First thing I did was cut them the length I wanted. I created the 'destroyed' look by using a utility knifeSecond, I placed the remaining scraps of denim in between in the front of the short and the back so when I sliced them it would not cut through to the back. Third, I just went back and forth on the denim as if I was slicing open the tape on a package. You have to put a little muscle into it but it pays off! I love creating my own destroyed look because I get to choose how much of the denim I want shredded. Finally, I threw them in the wash so the tear would have the snaggy look and the pieces on the edge would fall!
