Flower Power

I promise I don’t wake up on Fridays and think I’ve got to wear something floral. I swear it just happens. Maybe it’s my subconscious because I’ve mentioned Floral Friday one too many times. My brain is just wired for floral on Fridays. But I like it, so I’m just going to roll with it. Fridays are made for florals — who could say no to a nice happy print to start the weekend with? 
I’d been on the lookout for some distressed black skinny jeans this fall with just the knees ripped. This is a specific request and while I did find these here (same brand as what I’m wearing here and at such a good price) I realized that I owned two pair of similar black jeans so why not just distress them on my own? So I did. This morning, possibly while still wearing them. I don’t suggest this but it worked just fine. Because I’m lazy and didn’t want to take them off to measure / cut properly, but I was able to get the cut right at my knee. Again, do not take a pair of scissors to your knees. Take your jeans off and measure them. There is a reason why this blog does not have a DIY section.

    LOVE those shoes! Not sure what it is specifically, but I just like the cut/color of them and they work great with that top!

    What a great Frugal Fannie tip to distress your own jeans! They look great. I just might be doing the same thing to a pair of mine this weekend:) LOVE the shoes too but I’ll have to just “look crush” on them because of the price tag. Great floral Friday post!

    Most of the distressing of my jeans/shorts happens whilst wearing them. Sometimes it’s just necessary. Not lazy.

    I’m dating myself, but in the late 80’s/early 90’s, we ripped our jeans at the knee with keys. While wearing them. So there you go – your jeans are more authentic than you thought!

    Love this! Your jeans/distressing are perfect! I used sandpaper to distress my jeans once, it was too much work for the result, lol.
