Whoever said the perfect boyfriend didn't exist hasn't met Rose and Theresa from Refind Denim, who have set out to create the most amazing destroyed boyfriend jeans you've ever laid eyes on. I can honestly attest to the fact that perfection has indeed been attained. Let's do a little exercise: close your eyes and think of the absolute ideal, most flawless, ultimate type of distressed denim that make regular cameos in your sartorial dreams. Now head over to their website -- I guarantee that you'll find just what you were picturing. Make sure to also have a gander at the amazing blog they've got going, where boyfriend jeans inspo abounds, special promos are announced and for a peek inside their world of denim. It's kind of awesome. They're also on Instagram, out to prove that #theperfectboyfriend is not a unicorn.
Anyway, I brazenly took my boyfriend (chuckles!) for a spin on a not-so-warm spring day and fell even more in love, in spite of all the holes giving the chilly air direct access to my bare legs, thus contributing more shivers to my already shivering self. You see, these jeans have everything going for themselves, they're both the star and a blank canvas. They can be complimented in many ways: with a feminine pump, loafers, beat-up chucks, a sexy strappy sandal, t-shirts, chunky knits, long coats, the possibilities are endless. I personally went with a pump for a few reasons, one being that it was cold and secondly, you guys know how much I love offsetting the items I wear for a well-balanced, rounded outfit. Perhaps the only style rule I live by. Case in point: oversized tomboy jeans, pointy stiletto pumps and a button down that straddles the line between masculine (loose dress shirt) and feminine (satin).
On my neck is this amazing oversized, chunky ID choker from Rings & Tings that I've been fully abusing. Sometimes an accessory can just make or break a whole look and I can't think of the last time it wasn't decorating my collarbone -- mind you, I do take it off for my slumber. But I digress. I'm not one for crazy accessories and while I'd normally think of this type of thing as too bold, I just gravitated towards it, probably thinking to myself that if I have that thing on, then I don't have to wear anything else jewelry-wise. Rings & Tings is just such a great go-to for fun, accessible trendy pieces. Highly recommend.
Regardless of this particular day being cold as hell, what I'm wearing pretty much embodies transitional weather dressing -- my favorite. And it's another lesson in putting simple pieces together that look really cool as a whole. (On a side note, I can't believe this coat is still actually white. Props to myself!)
