Fringed & Frayed

4.30.2014


Free People fringed cardigan, Mossimo sleeveless blouse, Jbrand DIY ripped jeans (similar here), Free People boater hat (similar here), Sophie crossbody bag c/o MZ Wallace, Tiered necklace from La Di Da Dee Brooklyn, Leaf cuff c/o Elvafields, Vintage rings, Zara two-tone booties (also seen here). Shot by Isaac Lacey.




The weather in NYC has been bipolar lately. Gorgeous, warm spring days will be followed by a week of bitter cold temps, as evidenced by the park next door to my apartment, where nearly all of the colorful flowers that popped up a few weeks ago have shriveled and died.

My enthusiasm for getting dressed in the morning seems like it's also died a slow death. While I was once eager to rock my long-forgotten spring dresses and shorts, I've now slid back into the routine of throwing on the closest pair of jeans and topping em off with a warm sweater or coat. Finally, bored with all of my pants last week, I took out these old grey Jbrand jeans and decided to add a little more life to them. A few fun slashes and cuts later, and they were invigorated with new life! In fact, I think I might even slash them up a little more...

Anyway, here's hoping Spring rears its beautiful face sometime soon!

  14. Your fringed cardigan is gorgeous and it looks so cosy. I love what you've done to your jeans, an awesome way to revive them. The weather has been similar here to, makes putting an outfit together very tricky! :)

    Take care,
