Middle part

5/8/13

Zara shirt, Rich & Skinny jeans, 3.1 Phillip Lim sandals, Nordstrom beanie, Vanessa Mooney necklace, Linea Pelle tote

During the short heatwave that passed by last week, I wanted nothing more than to step out, if needed to, in breathable and comfy pieces. Doing this though--at least for me--almost always results in outfit combinations that are less than stellar. I figure in times when layers are undesirable, the little details are what speaks volumes... so minutes before stepping out, while fidgeting with different pairs of denim, denim shorts, un-cuffing and then re-cuffing these Rich & Skinny skinnies, I haphazardly decided it would look much better with a middle part. Grabbed a pair of scissors and snipped it while wearing the jeans, not even measuring whether the snip was centered, nor checking to see if either slit measured the same lengthwise (see those frayed ends?). So not the expert DIY-er, ha. Anyway, kept things light and grayish with the Phillip Lim sandals (my favorite pair to wear for summer!), and added my trusty beanie when temperatures cooled.

EEP I wanted to do a similar thing to a pair of jeans, but it's so scary making the final cut!

I really love the details on your jeans, even if they are the result of DIY (:

I LOVE this idea! (we say as we're pulling the scissors out of the junk drawer) ... all of our old jeans may end up with middle parts now.

I love the slit you made in the jeans, thought maybe they came like that. Well more like hoped because i'm so not a diy-er. Love the shoes as well.
