Checkered, Stripes, and Denim

song_of_style_checkeredI love the versatility of denim so when River Island asked me to style one of their new styles of denim, I chose the Eva girlfriend jeans, and spruced it up a bit for work!song_of_style_checkered_boyfriend_jeanssong_of_style_checkered_details
I styled my distressed jeans with a light blue checkered jacket also from River Island. I love the soft material on it, and the cropped checkered pattern jacket adds a ladylike element to the whole ensemble.
song_of_style_checkered_boyfriend_jeans_3song_of_style_boyfriend_jeansWhen it comes to boyfriend (or in this case, girlfriend) jeans, I like to cuff the bottoms of the jeans and the tapered ankles of these jeans make them perfect to add high heels.song_of_style_checkered_boyfriend_jeans_4song_of_style_black_and_gold_sandals

  52. The sandals are my fav…loving the distressed look!

  53. The red handbag looks great against your chambray blue clothes. You really made distressed jeans look totally classy with the pieces selected. Great outfit.

    That structured clutch goes perfect with your outfit. I agree with Kate Dunphy – a camel coat is a must have. The footless tights are just too cute.
