The Perfect White Distressed Denim

"Easton Top" - Piper Street / Paige Verdugo Petite Jeans -Anthropologie / 
Dolce Vita Sandals - Nordstrom Rack / Clutch - c/o Gigi New York / Necklace - Piper Street / Bracelets - J Crew Factory (THIS and THIS) and Kendra Scott / Earrings - Francesca's (similar) / Rings - ASOS and J Crew Factory

I have been searching high and low for months now for the perfect pair of white distressed denim. I have a few criteria when it comes to distressed white denim...first of all, they can't be totally see-through...no one needs to see all that! Second, I look for the main distressing to be mostly around the knee area (not all up the leg). Lastly, I have somewhat oddly short legs for someone my height and have to buy petite length denim most times to accommodate my proportions. This can be tricky when searching for denim sometimes because not all denim comes in petite length! With these three criteria in mind and after ordering and trying on countless pairs of distressed white denim FINALLY I'm happy to say I've found the PERFECT pair! I am in love with my Paige Verdugo Petite Jeans from Anthropologie! They aren't too thin, not too distressed and just the right length...winner!! If you're looking for petite length denim these are definitely worth giving a try. I already had a love for Paige denim but now I love it even more!

And can I just say how much I'm loving this fun top from Piper Street? The gorgeous print and lace trim detailing is the cutest!!!  Check out all of Piper Street's latest New Arrivals HERE!!  And set your alarms because our next roll out of new items arrives tonight at 9pm EST!!  Don't miss it!

Some days I wake up feeling like putting on shorts or jeans is just an impossible task....anyone else?  Those are the days my dress section in my closet becomes my friend. I wear dresses in the summer a ton...they are every bit as functional as wearing pants if you choose the right ones!  I find wearing maxi dresses or knee-length dresses to be the best options for my on-the-go lifestyle and love that you can dress them up or down as much as you want! A while back I picked up this dress from Sonnet James and I am loving not only these fun summer colors but the versatility it offers.  It's so easy to throw on a jacket to give this dress a totally different look too...either tying it around your waist for a more sporty look or wearing it with your sleeves rolled a bit for a casual look. Jeans jackets are my go-to for breezy summer nights!

Are you a midi-dress fan too? If you haven't tried one yet go for it! There are so many great options at all price points across the web! Below are a few of my faves right now:

Dressing up is always fun but so many days I'm just in the mood to be comfortable in a t-shirt and jeans.  But guess what...dressing down doesn't mean you can't look a little dressed up at the same time! Follow these three simple steps to spice up your casual wear the next time a t-shirt and jeans find their way to the front of your closet:

1. Pick a print--While a solid color tee is easy to throw on and matches so many things, search out a fun print to wear up top! Florals, stripes, polka dots...all these add an extra little something to a basic tee and can really elevate a casual look. I LOVE this cute tee from Anthropologie...it's easy to throw on but has such a pretty print that catches your eye!

2. Pop some color on your feet--One of the best ways to add a little pizazz to jeans and a tee is to add a pop of color on your feet! Whether you choose a bright neon shoe like these Steve Madden sandals or a darker bold hue, a little color goes a long way in boosting your look. Adding another layer of color on your piggies, if they show, always helps too!

3. Layer on the jewelry--Jewelry always adds another dimension to an outfit. Whether you wear a great statement necklace, layer multiple delicate chains and pendants, stack on a pile of colorful bracelets or mix and match metals and stones on your fingers, wearing jewelry with a causal outfit makes an otherwise plain look really stand out!  Remember editing is important, but let's be honest, the more jewelry the merrier!!

Follow these three tips and you'll glam up any casual look!

Soft neutral colors are grabbing my attention lately in a big way...they just feel like summer! I've picked up a few of these items over the past few weeks already...there have been some great sales going on all over the place! I like to mix higher end pieces with more affordable options in my closet to mix it up but everything here is under $60 (with the exception of the Anthro cardigan which is still under $90)!  Sometimes I'm willing to spend a little extra if I really love it. =)

What are you loving lately??

Shoes - Piper Street
Necklace - Ily Couture
Earrings - Kendra Scott via Rocksbox
Bracelets - Nordstrom and Piper Street 
Watch - Marc Jacobs

If you look in my closet it would be no surprise that I am stocked up on pattern and lots of color. In fact I sometimes challenge myself to NOT wear so much pattern and color in one look just to see if I can do it! Today I went with a compromise...pattern up top and a pop of color on bottom.  Grid print has been a huge trend this past season and I love the subtle interest it offers a look.  The "Campbell" top and "Hayden" jeans from Piper Street are really great pieces that can both be mixed and matched several ways. And because I can't help myself these coral fringe beauties found their way onto my feet. I mean, how could I pass up the chance to wear coral and fringe at the same time?!!  I finished off the look with another small pop of color in my jewelry...these gorgeous earrings from Kendra Scott came in my May Rocksbox and I loved them! Mint colored jewelry is always a good idea,  am I right?!! If you haven't signed up for Rocksbox get a free month on me! Use code "foundinmyclosetxoxo"!!

I've got one more great deal for you today...in honor of Memorial Day we're offering 20% off your entire purchase at Piper Street!! The look above (grid top, jeans and shoes) comes out to be just under $90 when you use code SUMMERVIBES at checkout!  Talk about a great look for less!! Sale ends tonight at 11:59pm EST.

Hope you enjoy the holiday!! I am truly grateful for those who have served our country and sacrificed in more ways than one to protect our freedoms.

May we never forget.
