Hi, everyone!  How is your week going?  We are down to just a week and a half left at school, and it’s been really busy!  We’ve had our state testing this week, and it always makes for long days for the students and the teachers!  I’m ready for it to be over with so I can enjoy the last few days with my students!  I am so ready for summer and all of the fun trips we have planned!  I know it’ll go by so fast, but I’m looking forward to it all!  

Today, I wanted to share with y’all some of my absolute favorite denim!  Some that I own and some that are on my “to buy” list!  I love trying new styles of denim, but I have the hardest time finding styles that fit right on me.  I have pretty long legs, bigger hips, and a tiny waist, and it seems like almost every pair I try on doesn’t fit me exactly the way I want it to!  They either fit great on my hips, but are too big on my waist or vice versa.  I have two go to brands for my denim.  I fell in love with this brand a while ago when I first purchased this pair of distressed skinny jeans.  These have since been out of stock, but I literally wore them everyday for so long!  They fit me perfectly and had just the right amount of stretch.  It was all that I needed to fall in love with the brand!

 I also love this brand. This was a brand that I started wearing when I was in college, and then I tried to branch out and try different brands.  Unfortunately, I have never had as much luck with other brands like I’ve had with this one.  Just last fall, I was looking for some new denim and could not find any anywhere.  I ended up finding two of the most perfect pairs here!  If you haven’t tried their jeans yet, I totally recommend it!

Here are a few of my go to pairs that are on my denim ride or die list!

1.“Good Vibes” Distressed Skinny Jeans (wearing in today’s post)

White tunic, distressed wash denim         Distressed denim, leopard clutch

These are probably hands down my most favorite pair of denim that I own.  I got them a few years ago and have purchased another similar style since.  I love the fun wash of this pair of denim, and they fit so great!  An acid wash type jean isn’t typically something I would go for, but these are an exception!  I love how they can make any look more edgy.

2.Dark Distressed Mid Rise Jean Legging

These are my current favorite pair of dark wash denim.  They’re super flattering on and the fabric is stretchy enough to make them comfortable for all day wear.  I love the distressing, and they hit at the perfect spot by my ankles.

3.Mid Rise Distressed Cropped Jean Legging

Peplum and ruffles, distressed denim         Cold shoulder top, distressed denim

This is a great pair if you’re going for a more casual look.  Again, they are comfortable to wear, and I love the distressing.  I love that this pair is a little shorter – they hit just above my ankle.  These are perfect to wear with wedge heels or sandals that have an ankle strap.

4.Black High Waisted Distressed Knee Jean Legging

Black and white button up, distressed black denim          Yellow scarf, jeans jacket, distressed black denim

If you’re looking for a good pair of black distressed denim, this is the one I would recommend!  I was hesitant about this pair at first because they were high waisted, but now that is actually one of my favorite parts of this pair!  They are ridiculously comfortable and stretchy, but they never stretch out too much.  They are a little long on me (I’m 5’10”), so I typically have to roll them up.  If I needed another pair, I would definitely get a short.

Here are some other denim styles that I am loving right now, all at different price points!  I love the frayed edges on this pair, and the distressing on this one is so perfect!

What kind of denim is your favorite?
