When celebrating a patriotic holiday it’s always time to break out the red, white and blue. Normally, Cailin and I do the stereotypical trip to a lake for Memorial Day, but this time we just did a relaxing at-home meal, since our summer is packed with trips and freelance gigs. In turn, I kept it casual with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and this red bandanna tank from my Mom’s 90s closet. I finished the look with a pair of lace-up espadrilles.
So let me fill you in on my jeans. I recently discovered that Macy’s is actually full of decently priced “on-trend” jeans. I don’t typically like to spend too much money on trendy pieces because, well you know, trends come in and out of style mighty fast. I love the light wash, distressed details and the button up closures on this pair, and they were only $12! They also seem to be pretty good quality and should last with the proper care. So go check it out if you’re looking to try some new styles without breaking the bank.
