Happy Monday everyone!

Today I am sharing one of my favorite looks for summer and tips on how you can rock it too. Let’s face it I love distressed jeans.

They were the perfect light wash and just enough rips and destruction. It is easy to  wear distressed jeans for a casual look with your favorite t-shirt and sneakers, but you can also dress it up for this casual Friday work look like I did here.
