Blue Jeans Baby

Silver Jeans Co

My favorite brand of denim and jeans

I have been planning a in depth post on my favorite jeans for some time. I have done several prior posts on Silver Jeans and denim but I really wanted to be able to show full length photos not just of the top half of my body.  I have wanted to show you photos that really show the fit and quality of the jeans. It's so hard to take these style photos when you don't have someone to take them for you. My goal since my blog has begun to increase in views, was to be able to have someone take photographs for me. I have done a few shoots and have two upcoming shoots scheduled with local photographers, I have shared a few shots then you will see more of them popping up in the weeks ahead. Also I'm working with my oldest daughter to start a blog. She has been doing my makeup and helping me with taking photos.  She has wanted to start her own blog for some time and she asked me if we could do a collaboration that way it would appeal to all ages, then she loves makeup and I love clothes, and accessories. It should be an amazing mix of styles, our favorite products, and more.  I can't wait to launch the new blog and show how amazingly talented my daughter is. If you love makeup she knows her products, and she has a gift for applying it. She has been taught by a pro, for her 16 birthday I had one of my friends that is a professional makeup artist and has really taken off down here in Florida with her career, teach her how to properly apply all the makeup, then which products were the best. Also what products you can purchase in the drug store then which ones you should splurge on. Okay enough about that future adventure let me get back on subject here. Time to  get started on Silver Jeans Co. Enjoy 

For over half my life now I have been wearing Silver Jeans Co. I discovered these jeans back around the end of high school. I have always had a love for distressed denim, at that time it was Bly a style you could find in stores. I would usually purchase jeans in thrift stores and distress them myself, one day while shopping in the mall I came across a pair of Silver jeans that were ripped and distresed. This is when my love affair with Silver Jeans began. 

After owning several pairs for a few years I realized not only were they a great fit but the quality was amazing, most of the jeans I would purchase would maybe last me a year or less before they would either have holes in the back near the pockets, get stretched out, faded etc. I was donating most other brands to Goodwill every six months to a year. I began to notice that I was holding on to my Silver jeans and looking back now I have several pairs still in my closet that are over ten years old. You would probably think, well aren't they out of style or totally worn looking? The answer is no, they look almost the same as when I purchased them. Some even got better with time, being that I love ripped, distressed jeans I don't mind when the jeans get more distressed. There is nothing better then an amazing fitting pair of jeans that are broken in. I have one style that in my early twenties I was addicted to, I bought them in several sizes because I was one who has always fluctuated from being one size to another through out the year. I would buy the Tuesday Silver Jeans low cut boot jeans that had awesome distressing in multiple sizes. I also owned the same style, the Tuesday jeans in Capri or cropped length, darker wash and even some that didn't have distressing. Once I realized that the quality was as amazing as the fit and look of the jeans I was a loyal Silver Jeans wearer. When I needed a new pair of jeans whether it be boot cut, skinny jeans, flares, capris, shorts, even denim jackets, vests, you name it I would look for Silver jeans Co brand before making a purchase. It didn't take long before my denim collection was over 75% made up of the Silver Jeans Co brand then some other high end denim brands mixed in. 

Even as brands would begin to trend or become the it designers I would try on some, usually my complaint would be the length as well as the quality. I don't like really thick denim but then I also don't like the really thin denim either. I love how Silver Jeans denim is just the right texture and thickness, they have a little stretch to them so that I can purchase a size that fits me perfectly in my waist, to avoid always needing a belt, but still be able to have a little room or for my curves. 

Over the years my collection has grown and grown. Even my teen daughter owns a large part of Silver Jeans in her denim collection. She agrees that the stitching and pocket placement on the jeans really compliment the shape of your body while having an amazing quality and feel to every pair. Every season when I am looking for new denim I head straight to the stores that stock Silver Jeans or directly to their website if I am not able to find what I want locally. I now buy a main percentage of my Silver jeans online in their online store because I tend to find a larger selection, plus they always have great promotions. 

This summer when shopping for denim shorts I always struggle with the same battle, now that I'm almost 40 I don't like to wear short shorts. I also don't want to be wearing long knee length Bermuda style shorts all the time. Just because I'm getting older and I'm a mom doesn't mean I don't want to find stylish shorts without looking like I am trying to look twenty still. I usually like my inseam on my shorts to be 3-5" I also like to be able to find different styles from fitted, looser boyfriend fit, frayed bottom, rolled up hem, and a variety of colors is nice. I found the boyfriend style shorts on their website in the dark wash and purchased them. Once they arrived I fell in love with the fit, then I ordered the lighter wash, then the frayed bottom shorts in medium wash then a pair of grey shorts. What can I say I'm addicted to Silver Jeans Co.  

So I'm going post some photos of my current favorite styles including a new pair of flare vintage looking jeans that are perfect for the fall. I love a great pair of boot cut or flare jeans for fall and winter. 

I got these distressed boyfriend jeans in spring and have worn them weekly since. They have an unfinished frayed bottom and can be worn rolled up for a more cropped look, or left unrolled with the frayed bottom for a trendy distressed look. I am obsessed with the fit, if they seem a little big it's because when I ordered them I was wearing a size 30 in most of my jeans due to some weight gain from my medications but I have since lost over 20-30 lbs and am down to a size 27 in most jeans maybe a 28, so a lot of my older jeans from this passed year are a little big on me. Even though they are loose I still love them and honestly like the baggy boyfriend look. 

*Graphic tee is by Daisy Natives you can find her on IG @DaisyNatives and she has some really awesome graphic tops,  Everyone who follows me knows I have an addiction to graphic tees and tanks. Also I'm against mean girls and online bullying after enduring years of it myself. 
Girls should support girls always, life isn't a competition and instead of throwing hate or being mean we should all support one another. 

Here is another shot of the same jeans so you can see a little more of the details in the distressing and patches. I love the details you will also notice the fraying on the bottom. I made sure not to roll up twice so you would be able to see the frayed hem. 

Below I will add links to where you can purchase all these jeans. Of course going to you will be able to find most of, if not all of the styles I'm sharing in this post. Right now they have an amazing promotion going on where the more you buy the more you save. It's the perfect time to stock up for fall and winter as well as for back to school for those starting to shop for the school year. My girls wear uniforms but they do get to wear jeans for dress down day, I'm going to be getting them both a few pairs to have when they get to have a day to wear something other then their uniforms.  

I have to say my husband loves my Silver jeans because he is always saying how nice they make be behind look. He loves the way they fit me and always says, "Wow I love those Silver Jeans", he agrees they are the best fitting jeans I own. 

Here I'm wearing a new pair of Silver Jeans Co Aiko mid Flare jeans with the released style hem, with rips and distressing. These jeans have a button fly which I love and the buttons are exposed with a frayed open area. I love them with a pair of ankle boots or here I am wearing a pair of wedges by Jessica Simpson with an open toe perfect for summer. 

Front view of my flare jeans. To help everyone reading this post with sizing and length questions, I'm 5'7 almost 5'8, I wear a size 27-29 jeans. With the Suki and Aiko jeans I have in the passed noticed they are a little smaller in the hip and thigh area also they are a mid cut so I sized up. When you purchase or try on these jeans keep in mind some styles have stretch so if they feel fitted or tight at first keep in mind that as you wear them they are going to stretch some. You don't want to buy the ones with stretch loose because they will eventually just become baggier. Without heels they are a tad long on me, but I don't wear flare jeans with flats. Also I'm taller but my legs aren't super long, my daughter is a little taller then me but she is all legs, they fit her perfect.  I love to wear flare jeans with a boot or wedge like pictured here. 

Back view and as you can see the pocket placement is perfect. I also love the mid rise I have kind of gotten away from low rise jeans I don't like having to worry about exposing my back side or panties. I have learned a lot working in styling, if you are a little larger in your mid section a high rise fit will help flatten tummy and make waist look smaller, low rise is good for longer torso ladies, and then mid rise looks good on most body shapes. 

Here is a collage of some more shots of the Aiko Flare jeans. I have a cool post I am working on for those who are cleaning out their closet and have some jeans that still fit but maybe you want to donate or are thinking of getting rid of them, maybe you should set them aside till I post my DIY Jean update post. I was inspired by a blog post on the Silver Jeans Co blog about adding some stitching to your shorts or lace. I spent a few hours this am sitting poolside adding some iron on decorative and band patches, stitching in colors, along with some fabric swatches and different denim patches. Over Easter weekend I used a pastel ombré thread I had to add a decorative stitch to my pockets, then like I mentioned above I'm always adding patches, fabric and lace for a new look to older jeans.  I can't wait to show you how in no time on minimal budget I was able to take some of my older jeans and give them a revived new look perfect for the next season. 

These jeans above are another pair of amazing Silver Jeans Co Aiko fit jeans (below in where to buy)  that I rolled up for a cropped look. I love the dark patches and distressing. These are another favorite of mine. 

Side angle and as you can see they have amazing stitching and details. I also love the faded look on dark denim. I think it helps make the thighs appear to be thinner, no woman I know will ever complain about her jeans making her look thin in some trouble areas. 

As you can see there is a bit of a pattern with my jeans, they are all ripped or distressed. I own maybe 5 pairs of jeans that aren't distressed mostly because I have always loved a rocker look which distressed jeans fit into that look perfectly. I would live in ripped jeans, graphic tees and converse everyday if I could. If I was to tell you how many pairs of jeans and graphic tees I own you may think I'm a little insane lol. 

I got these boyfriend jeans last summer in July they are my favorite because they are super broken in, I love the holes with the threads and they have a true boyfriend loose fit. I recently purchased a smaller size since I lost weight but these are so amazing broken in, I won't be parting with them anytime soon. I'm going to use some fun ideas to add a little flare to them and will be posting my DIY Jean updates mentioned above in an upcoming blog post. Working on taking photos of all the jeans then showing what I used, a lot of items were things I owned already or had around the house. 

Let me wrap this up, thank you for passing by and keep an eye out next week I'm going to share the Tuesday jeans I mentioned above that I have had for over ten years to show you how well they have held up and how amazing they look even after years of wear. You won't believe how amazing they look, and trust me they have been worn a lot. Back when I purchased them I wore them all the time and over the years they still are in heavy rotation. Luckily I purchased a few sizes so I was able to wear them most of the time but I did have a short time they were too small for me, thankfully they have so many distressed styles now I had no issues finding a replacement in a larger size while undergoing medical treatments. I'm happy they fit me again and will be sharing them soon. I have worn them many times in my ootd posts over the years but I talk about them every time I post about Silver jeans I think I need to show you why I'm always bringing them up.  Below are links to where you can purchase all the above jeans, be sure to head on over to you can find most of them under the women's boyfriend fit tab, then above I have the Aiko Flares and a pair of Suki cropped jeans. For more on my favorite styles and fits of Silver Jeans feel free to look back in my prior posts for shorts, dresses and of course more denim & jeans galore. 

Have an amazing week. Peace and love always. Xoxo

Historic Jamestown, Yorktown and Williamsburg...

Hello from the road, we are cruising south on I-95 back to Florida. We left Williamsburg area in VA this morning and are currently in SC. We will be stopping to rest in Georgia for the evening and be back home tomorrow evening. 

Here are some more outfit posts from my week and weekend. It was really hard for me to leave my family. I kept it together unlike my last visit till we left, but once we hit the first rest stop I broke down. Since losing my father fifteen years ago I get super emotional to see any of his side of the families relatives.  It's hard to not have a large family, I have always wanted a large family and to be able to celebrate holidays with them but the family I do have is spread out across the country and in other countries that I have yet to meet.  

Now to my vacation outfits and some fun sight seeing shots. 

Sunset off the James River on the ferry back towards Williamsburg, VA area. It was amazing. We lucked out on this trip with seeing some amazing sunsets like when we went to the Liberty University Snow-flex Mountain to ride their tubes and happened to be there right when the sunset behind the Blue Ridge Mountains. Then we watched the sunset on the ferry boat ride back from Smithfield and Surry.

Wore my Silver Jeans frayed bottom shorts with my racer back thin strap O'neill women's tank. Ettika chokers are the Lucia from, also available in stores. The turquoise and gold Surprise you still choker I won on IG which led to them contacting me to b a part of their review team. It made my month since I had been dealing with the mean girl copying, lying, stealing and stalking my social media, had been told she was saying I posted horrible content so when they contacted me to see if I wanted to join their team I was honored. It always feels good to see that others enjoy my posts. I didn't get to over 20k followers on social media posting garbage or to clear up some other lies I have heard have been told, I have never bought ANY of my followers on IG. I like, comment and follow others daily working hard to build my following, run contests, promotions, have this blog and have been featured on many other pages and blogs. 

Friday I'm in love tee by Everfitte with my caged black bra top, and then paired it with my Silver Jeans Co shorts. Choker is the new Stacked Star choker in black and gold by Ettika, available at and in stores also. 

My Wanderer Bracelet stack with their anchor wrap, infinity and Shaka bracelets. You can use my code Melissa10 for 10% off your order and help support local Bali artisans. 

One of the many stops on our adventure this day was the glass blowing exhibit and house. Amazing to see how they came up with the idea to make glass then watch them make it right in front of us. 

Pocahontas statue at the Historic Jamestown. Amazing site and love how it is right next to the water of the James River. 

Pam & Gela bubblegum graphic tank paired with my Silver Jeans Co boyfriend jeans. Also you can see my Mermaid Tail bracelet by Wanderer Bracelets. 

Wanderer bracelets are my newest brand to be working with as a brand ambassador/rep and absolutely love this brand. I love the many styles and how detailed each piece is. The charms are carved from sustainable water buffalo bone in huts in Bali. Every purchase tog make secures jobs for local Bali artisans. As mentioned above you can use my code Melissa10 to save 10% off your purchase. Check back in some of my prior posts and also on my social media accounts for more photos of the many styles I own, and then their site for more styles and designs. 

Those of you who have followed me on my blog or social media know I have been an ambassador for Silver Jeans Co for over a year now and before that have always been a loyal Silver Jeans Co wearer. Over two decades of amazing quality and fit jeans led to me becoming an ambassador for this amazing brand. I love to be able to support and share brands I wear and have worn for many years. I will have a full post soon with more of my favorite styles with multiple photos of the styles on. Keep an eye out. 

Another brand I have been wearing for a few years and tagging is Pam & Gela. I think many of you know that Pam and Gela started Juicy Couture, back in my late high school years and early twenties Juicy couture was one of my favorite brands for handbags and velour sweat suits as I aged I of course outgrew the brand but did still purchase a few items for my children similar to the styles I wore in my late teens and early twenties. Years later they released their book about how they reached their success and of course they had released a new brand. First the had Skaist Levy which I have a couple shirts, pants and a dress from then they came out with their Pam & Gela brand which I was totally in love with, being a graphic tee and tank lover I was instantly obsessed with their line of graphic tops with fun quirky sayings, detailed graphics with rhinestones, studs and distressed tees. Its like their brands grew with me and as I matured and my style changed their styles changed, I was thrilled. Not having a huge budget for fashion I spent hours searching for sales or even pieces on eBay, I have since managed to grow my collection. My husband knows my favorite brands and he knows I work to grow my knowledge in fashion and design but also to save money to support my love of fashion and decor. I have been blessed to find many amazing sales and pre owned pieces online. I have splurged a few times around my birthday or holidays on full retail priced items but u won't lie to y'all I usually am shopping clearance sales, sample sales, end of season clearances, and eBay. I have scored many of my most coveted pieces on eBay. 

Yorktown Victory Center statue in entry. 

Beautiful Church inside Colonial Williamsburg VA. This church is still open for worship after being in this location for many decades. It is the original location and foundation but the interior has been changed many times over the decades. 

One of my first visits to Williamsburg was a few years into having my Nikon camera and the beginning of my love of photography being revived. That trip I photographed everything from buildings, statutes and small details. One thing I took lots of photos of was the old locks. They are all amazing and have such great details. If you look back a couple of years ago on my blog you will see macro shots along with other photos of my trip to VA. 

While in Williamsburg I found this Buffalo nickel charm bracelet that matches perfectly with my collection of Alex and Ani bracelets. This day I was wearing gold tone bracelets but love to mix and match metals. My gold tone bracelets include the compass, Godspeed, scarab beetle and the addition of my newest Indian and buffalo nickel bracelet. 

Yesterday I did a double arm stack wearing some of my favorite silver Alex and Ani bracelets. My left stack is starting from the top with the Wings of change charity by design, Hand of Fatima, feather charm, full feather bracelet, and my initial M charm. 

My right stack with my birthstone, the peridot for August, the painted feather, butterfly UNICEF and my new Buffalo nickel charm bracelet. Love to stack different metals, bracelets and styles daily. 

My graphic tank is by Chaser Brand, Big Dreams & Late Nights & Good Music. Jeans are a favorite of mine by Silver Jeans Co, I rolled these up for a cropped Capri look. 

Bracelets are my Alex and Ani charm bracelets. 

Here is a side view of one of my favorite style Silver Jeans Co. Love ripped and distressed jeans I use to buy my jeans and distress them all but back over a decade ago when distressed jeans weren't in style and all over I had found my Silver Jeans Co Tuesday low boot cut jeans that were super distressed. I had owned many other Silver jeans over the years but that style sold me and then made me a dedicated fan of this brand. I still have those jeans. I bought them in several sizes since I fluctuate in size often, also some days I like a looser fit then other days I like a tight fit. These were before boyfriend jeans were made and I enjoyed the baggy feel that now we can find in the boyfriend fit. 

Here you can see how they have darker denim patches to reinforce the holes along with some sewn on patches of darker denim. I love how Silver Jeans Co distresses their jeans. You can find lace, patterned fabrics, denim and other patches under holes, reinforced sewn areas around holes that don't have a patch under so the holes don't get too big. I know I love a good broken in pair of distressed jeans and let me tell you these jeans only get better with time. Again I own so many pairs that have been in my closet for up to twenty years, and as recent as last week. My collection is huge and any sale they have I make sure to stock up on my favorite styles. I will again be doing a post with photos of my favorite styles over the passed two decades as well as showing how well these jeans have held up over the years in comparison to other brands. I have been working on a detailed post but it has taken me some time to photograph every style and fit to show. I will also go over some sizing tips and some other tips for distressing jeans, cutting jeans to shorts, tips for rolling regular jeans for cropped look and what to look for in a seamstress if you are shorter and need to have your jeans altered. I know for years I never used a seamstress but after reading an article about having your more expensive brand jeans altered to fit your body perfectly I took one of my pairs of jeans to my seamstress that has altered many jumpers, rompers, dresses and work pants, I was amazed when she took in the waist let out the hips slightly, then took at the original hem shortened perfectly to my height and used the same string and threads from the original hem, you would never know they were altered and when you see the fit you will see why I have become addicted to having many of my clothes altered to fit my body. The before and after photos will amaze you. 

Luckily Silver Jeans offers options for inseams, and once you get the sizing down you will be amazed how this brand jeans really stretches and adjusts to hug your curves, making your body look amazing. Another of the many reasons why I love this brand. My husband is always telling me how much he loves how these jeans fit me. Lifting my rear, showing off my curves and complimenting my smaller waist. I honestly don't purchase any other brands really unless it's a sale or looking for a color or style that I couldn't find with Silver jeans first. 

She Laughs, Proverbs 31. This off the shoulder graphic tee is by She Does Justice and since we are riding in the car all day today as we are going to be arriving home this evening I wore my faithful fave Silver Jeans. 

Another final Alex & Ani arm stack. Looking forward to sharing some new looks and styles when I get home. I have some amazing Ettika pieces, new Flare Silver Jeans, Spell and the Gypsy tees, tanks, dresses, and shorts, along with some other new brands. Hope everyone has an amazing week and thank you for passing by to take a look at my blog. I will be sure to add links to the items above along with my where to shop guide that is normally below on my posts. 
Peace and love always, xoxo

Vacation outfits

Hello from Virginia the state for lovers. I have been enjoying my vacation and spending time with my father's side of the family. I love coming to visit my Aunt because I don't have a lot of family and being here reminds me of my father, who passed away 15 years ago. It gets a little emotional for me but it's a happy emotion. 

        Rest area off I-95 north in NC 

We have done a lot of sight seeing and fun adventures. Today we went to some vintage and antique stores, also some great local thrift stores. I didn't buy much surprisingly because I know I need to really do a huge closet clean out when j get home. Besides losing a lot of weight since changing my to new medications and treatment plan, I just have accumulated so many things this passed year. I love clothes and seem to always find so many amazing deals I just can't pass up. 

I don't have access to a laptop or computer until I get home but figured j would share some of my outfits as well as some of my photos from our trip. Once I return home I promise to add links for where you can purchase some of my pieces or similar items for the pieces that are not available anymore. 

     The Light Blonde & Silver Jeans Co. 

I started my vacation in my Livin on a prayer graphic tee, this tee is made by The Light Blonde and you can find her on Instagram @thelightblonde. She has so many amazing graphic tees and tanks with the best messages. I love positive vibes and messages, you will find a large variety of amazing graphic tops in her shop. I paired my tee with a pair of dark Silver Jeans. Silver jeans are my favorite they are so comfortable and fit amazing. 
My tassel necklace is by @31ements on IG and bracelets are some of my gold tone Alex and Ani favorites. 

                Lovers Gonna Love

We stopped off in SC on the way to VA to break up our ride and I was dressing for another day of mostly riding in the car. I decided to go with another amazing message graphic tee by The Light Blonde. With all the recent events in the news I really felt like spreading good positive vibes and this shirt says it all, Lovers gonna love, a flip for the positive people out on the Haters gonna Hate. Why would anyone want to be thinking about hate in a time where we need to come together and love one another. I paired this cream and burgundy graphic tee with some matching burgundy brick red Rag and Bone jeans. These particular jeans by Rag & Bone are so soft and they really don't even feel like jeans. Also they fit great. Bracelets are by Alex and Ani, I recently added a few more to my collection from the Bonaroo festival collection. I got the peace love music with floral border along with the green free spirit. I also got a beautiful beaded mermaid wrap, I love beach themed everything since I piece of me is always at the beach. 

       My Aunt's beautiful home in VA 

My Aunt has such a lovely home in western VA. Every time we come to visit I think of Gone with the wind. 

               Wanderer Bracelets

Above are some of my bracelets by Wanderer bracelets. I recently became a brand rep for this amazing brand that has all their bracelets hand made in Bali using sustainable water buffalo bone. I love their designs and they have a style for everyone. Here I'm wearing the shell, anchor wrap and feather. You can use my code MELISSA10 for 10% off your order. If you are looking for a gift these make great gifts and it's not just for beach lovers they have their custom coordinates bracelet that you can enter an address for a location and it will give you the coordinates on the map for the location, then you can order it on your own custom bracelet. These make great gifts for someone special. 

              Ettika Jewelry Choker 

Love my Ettika, Surprise you still beaded turquoise and gold choker, available at and GMA had a special for $15 with Ettika for some other colors and styles of this multi use beaded piece. I also wear mine as an anklet and bracket. I was so excited to see one of my own photos featured in their recent email send out for these styles. 

 Junkie Threads Tank ✖️ Silver Jeans Co.

Junkie Threads was kind enough to send me a few styles of their graphic tanks to wear for my blog and social media. This feather design being one of them. Love it and paired it with my boyfriend jean shorts by of course, Silver Jeans Co. I have every pair of their shorts for summer because I loved the fit and styles. Usually shorts aren't easy to find, you can't go wrong with Silver Jeans Co. These are the perfect length and if you like shorter shorts you can just roll them up one or two more times for that look. I also have the frayed bottom shorts in blue denim then a light grey. Love the fit of all their summer styles. 

                Appomattox Virginia 

Love history and especially anything from the Civil war days. My father was a big history and Civil war fanatic so it's awesome to visit places like Appomattox battlefield and town to see where it all went down. 

           Alex & Ani "Charmed Arms" 

Above is a shot I took at my aunt's house in one of her many beautiful garden areas she planted herself in the spring and they are so gorgeous. Two years ago I shared some amazing pictures of her garden when I visited my last time. Then I was big into macro photos this time I was more into my film camera and did take some bird shots also. Love my Alex & Ani collection. Can't wait to get home to some new pieces I got while away on sale and also grabbed a couple new bracelet designs for my collection. 

   Pam & Gela Ice cream tank with Silver                                                 
        Jeans Co frayed bottom shorts.

A favorite graphic tank I got for summer by Pam & Gela. Been entering their summer contest on Instagram tagging my shots with their I'm not sorry hashtag with hopes to win $500 value wardrobe pieces from their current collection. 

Paired with the shorts I mentioned above by Silver Jeans Co with frayed bottoms. These are slightly different then the grey style I have, these are a little longer then have a frayed hem with some slight distressing. I tend to distress all my jeans if they don't come distressed and sometimes I will distress more if they only have a slight distressing to them. These I did distress some more then they came with. I also add patches sometimes but not on these. I love how these fit and they are so comfortable. Perfect length. 

Junkie threads RAD tank paired with a lace kimono from Pac sun and of course Silver Jeans Co boyfriend shorts in a lighter denim with distressing. My choker is the Role Player choker available at 

Feather tattoo my daughter drew for me a couple years ago and I loved it so much I got it tattooed on my arm for Mother's Day that same year. 

Stacking Ettika Lucia and Surprise you still chokers. You can get the Lucia choker at and the other is available at 

Tank is by O'Neill women's and my frayed bottom Silver Jeans shorts. 

Forgot to post this before we left my Aunt's house didn't hit post. Will add links to click and take you to websites once I'm home and have access to my laptop. Thank you for passing by and my next post will have some more outfit pics and then some shots of where we visited the end of the week and weekend. Hope everyone has had a great week and weekend. 

Peace and love always. Xoxo
