I wore this outfit last week on my way to grab dinner with Stan. One of my favorite looks for nights out is a feminine top and a great pair of jeans (much like this look and this one). It’s seems like such a cliche combo, but I will never tire of it! While I have some jeans with tons of distressing, I like minimal amounts for looks like this. I fell in love with these jeans because they were such a classic color and the distressed knees were much more understated which look great when I want to dress them up. The jeans initially had a staggered hem, but as with almost all my jeans the inseam was way too long for me so I had to cut off a few inches. I ended up liking the look better this way since it contributed to the more classic look of them. Typically when fraying my jeans, I use a simple pair of scissors (though I have heard garment shears are better – I probably need to pick some up) and then throw them in the dryer a few times to get the fabric to fray.
This J. Crew top is the cutest style for spring and summer, though I do advise sizing down since it runs quite large as I find with most of their clothes. Their vanity sizing has really gotten out of control these past few years – anyone else think so? I started to laugh when I saw 00 and 000 sizes popping up – how far down can they go? LOL While much of their stuff can be hit or miss for  me, I still like to shop their on occasion for fun pieces (like this look, this trench and this bright top).
