Ripped + Scuffed On Purpose.

Ripped + Scuffed On Purpose.

Remember the panic you’d feel when a hole started wearing in the knee of your back-to-school jeans? One too many ill-advised jumps off the jungle gym or dumps of your 10-speed, and your new jeans were toast. “Mom’s going to kill me.”

Now I find myself buying up pairs of jeans with the knees pre-busted and desert booties already scuffed. (And my mom doesn’t yell at me.) Loving the relaxed, too-cool-for-school feel they bring to an outfit. For a nice contrast, I matched the distressed pieces with a clean, classic striped tee from JCrew.

Speaking of these booties, are you guys members of ShoeMint? A monthly shoe closet curated for you, based on a style quiz you take when signing up. Go check it out.
