Distressed Jeans

My first army jacket was bought ten years ago in a Parisian flea market.  (Stay with me here - I realize that's one heck of a pretentious opener .)  I felt so very worldly, as I strolled through le marche, jacket casually tossed over my arm.  Ou est la cafe, Monsieur?  Ah, bien.  Merci.

Every few years, trends....shift.  Barely at first (I swear, on a year-to-year basis virtually nothing changes), but over time these little movements amount to the difference between perms and beachy waves:  both are curls, sure, but you'd never confuse one with the other.  (Unless you have a *magic* perm, and in that case, let us all know.)

That is what I'm trying to do over here anyway (see the workout outfit below...sheesh...I'm a goofball, for sure). I love love looking at everyone's #myeverydayedit pics on Instagram. It's so fun...
