Laid Back Yet Chic

I can't believe its already March, Spring is almost here.The inspiration for this look was a laid back yet chic outfit that you can dress up with some heeled sandals or dress down with flats. It's the perfect transition from running errands to having lunch with friends.

Distressed Jeans: DL 1961 Jeans at Bloomingdale's
 The focal point of this outfit are the distressed denim, this grunge yet chic look seems to never go out of style. Celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Jessica Alba, and Rhianna have all been seen rocking this popular trend. I chose these distressed denim by DL1961, they are one of my favorite brand of jeans right now. DL1961 jeans are a little pricy, but knew that I loved the fit and style of these jeans and would get good use out of them so I splurged. You can find similar styles of this distressed denim at Forever 21, Zara, and PacSun.

Graphic Tee: Forever 21
Distressed denim jeans are comfortable yet stylish and can be paired with a basic blouse or graphic tee like I have chosen. This tiger print graphic tee from +Forever 21, is a fun and bold statement piece to add to your outfit. To top off this laid back chic look I layered a tweed moto jacket from +Forever 21 . This tweed jacket is great for those cool Spring days and adds that touch of chic to complete the look.

Always remember to accessorize it really does make a difference in the look you are trying to achieve. I decided to pair these distressed denim jeans with heeled sandals from +Forever 21, these are all the rage right now and can also be found at Zara and Steve Madden. For a more casual look try pairing this look with flats or gladiator sandals during the Spring. I am obsessed with any thing animal print, this Zara handbag tied in my tiger print graphic tee perfectly. For jewelry I decide to go for all gold  by pairing jewelry from Forever 21 and Henri Bendel.
