Everyday Dressing || DIY Raw Hem Tutorial + The Best Light Wash Denim

About a year ago, one of my best girlfriends and I headed up to LA for a night away. Just the two of us. No schedules. We started the morning with a spin class, followed by a mimosa brunch, and then headed out for a little shopping. Top on her list was a pair of high waisted, light wash, denim jeans for the spring season. I had just purchased this pair (that I’m still obsessed with), so I was more of an onlooker in her quest to find the perfect pair. Yet, this season, I joined her… and went on the search for a hug in alllll the right places light wash denim. Since I’d had success with Levi’s jeans in the past (two of my favorites are from them, they fit like a glove), I decided to give this pair a chance. From the moment I put them on, I was sold. They have a slight stretch, are high waisted, and hug in the perfect spots. Oh, and they have no distressing to them… I mean, who have I become??…..

But, in an attempt not to disappoint you, I’ve added my own touch of distressing by cutting the hem…. like I do with all my jeans, since I’m so short. I recently had a request on how to create the look, so you can find a short, and very simple, DIY tutorial for creating the raw hem on any of your jeans below in the video…..

I love pairing this pair with a cute mule, like these super comfortable white ones. I recently purchased this adorable blush pair and can’t wait to see how they look together (Jeffrey Campbell has some super cute mules for Spring….)…..

In that light, I guess I can successfully cross off light wash denim + cute mules on my spring list!

    Those are exactly the type of jeans I’m looking for, but all the sizes are sold out! Do you have any tips to finding out when this would come back in stock? They must be popular!
