Spring & Summer Capsule Series | Vol. 2 (Denim)

Hello, friends! I bring you volume 2 of my Spring and Summer Capsule series! This post is all about jeans! I may do another post closer to summer regarding shorts, but for right now with this weather... I'm still covering my legs!

I think it's important to have a variety of jeans available for all seasons and occasions in your closet. For Spring and Summer, I like to have a good pair of white jeans, a light wash distressed pair of jeans and a dark wash pair available in my closet for a variety of occasions. I have listed below the jeans that I currently have and love, as well as some jeans that are on my wish list.


Let's start with this pair of dark washed, raw hem jeans. I got this pair a few weeks ago and I have been wearing them non-stop! They are ankle length with a 'chewed hem' as they call it and have the slightest distressing sprinkled on the front. But, these are the perfect running errands in my flip flops during the day and then throw on a pair of heels for date night pair of jeans! They fit maybe a little larger than normal, but I went ahead and got my normal size in the petite length (I'm 5' 2") and they fit great!

Second up are these distressed, high waist jeans. They are considered jeggings most likely because of how soft and stretchy they are. And pair that with the high waist and it's like you're basically wearing high waisted leggings! These were my first pair of high waisted jeans and to be honest, I don't know what took me so long! I'm much more comfortable in a mid or high rise jeans these days (RIP low rise). I got my true size in these, but they do run a big snug with the high waist! But, mine have stretched out a bit with wear.



Lastly, my favorite pair of white distressed jeans. I bought these last summer and have worn them constantly (besides the winter months) ever since! They have good stretch and are mid rise, so I feel a bit more confident wearing them. They are not see through and have butt pockets which is a must with white denim! I would say these run true to size as well.

These are definitely my top 3 most worn jeans currently. I also wear this pair quite often and refer to them as my 'church' jeans 😂 Because there is no distressing on them and they are very basic and flattering!

I've linked to several other similar styles to these jeans below:

  1. Love all your choices! These three colors are total staples. I don't have much distressed denim because my boss looks at me funny with even the slightest bit of distressing on my pants. Even though its a casual place and my coworker wears running shorts most days! Sigh.

  2. Welcome to the world of high waisted jeans! You’ll never go back - that was life-changing for me last year. AE jeans are still my ride or die. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can wear some of the distressed pairs I bought on vacation!
