It's the new distressed denim trend all over social media and Pinterest! It adds a little edge to your look and draws attention to your shoes. I have had these jeans for awhile now and have been too lazy to get them hemmed so I normally just cuff them, which is fine, but sometimes that doesn't fit my look. So I decided to try and give them the raw, uneven hem! No need for alterations if your jeans are too long this season!
Follow my easy step-by-step for a quick and free alteration to vamp up your denim game!
Here is what you need: Jeans (duh!), fabric scissors, measuring tape, seam ripper (if you have a tough side seam or for extra fray), and a chalk pencil or some kind of marker.
Choose your perfect pair of jeans, slim boot, boyfriends, skinny, whatever you want. I went with skinny because that is what I needed altered.
Try them on and mark with chalk the length you want in the back (longer) and in the front (shorter)
Cut up the side seam on the front of the jeans about 1/2 to 1 inch depending on how you like it
Cut straight across the front hem
Cut across the back hem but not as high as the first, fray the bottom by either pulling it apart a little or washing them.
You're done!! Easy peasy and super cute!! I hope you enjoy your new jeans ;)
Love, love, love embroidery right now! Not the pop art type but all of the sweet florals! And I'm obsessed with all the pastels this winter, much more cheery for me :) I can't stop wearing these embroidered mom jeans. I'm such a restless online shopper, I was so eager to get them in the mail I kept walking by the door to check when they would show up, probably driving my roommates crazy lol. They are so fun and flattering and I have always loved a good pair of high waisted jeans.
Also, if you have not yet noticied, I am also a firm believer in pastel colored handbags because they can match so much and add that perfect touch to every outfit. This smokey blue is perfect for winter! This top is actually a crop top but since my jeans were high waisted it worked perfectly, so don't always discount those shorties during the winter because they can work, trust me. You can never go wrong with a white button-up, so classic in any wardorbe!
Even though I have been on break, I feel like I am extra busy running around getting ready for Christmas parties and catching up with friends, not that this is a bad thing! My best friend in the world is home for a few weeks and we are trying to soak up every second we can, which started out with decorating Christmas cookies which may also be one of my favorite things in the world because once I start eating those I can't stop. Just too darn good!!
I can't believe Christmas is only two days away!!!! This season flew by so quick! Enjoy every second of it!
I'm a total watch girl - for looks and function. I have alwasy been curious about wood watches, because how cool and eco-friendly is that!? I recieved my JORD wood watch in the mail and was, first of all, blown away by how personal the packaging was! All wrapped up in a fancy wood case and around a cute little burlap cushion! They also already had it sized for me!! Thats a big deal to me because I have a ridiculously tiny wrist and I hate having to deal with getting a watch sized.
It's super light and powered by Swiss movement, which never fails! I chose the Frankie Zebrawood and Champagne color because it can go with pretty much anything, very classy. It also features saphire crystal glass for a durbable, yet sleek, face. All the watches are made from different wood around the world, the Zebrawood is from Africa! Fancy!!
If you are looking for a unique gift I would definintly reccommend one of these watches because they are a show stopper! From rugged to preppy they have one for any style and they do personalized engravings! Add that extra special touch that reminds you how precious time is. Check out the women's watches here and the mens watches here! Want a $25 or $50 gift card!? Follow me on Instagram and DM for details!!
