Featuring my DIY Distressed Jeans

As promised, today I'm showing you all my DIY distressed jeans. They turned out exactly how I wanted, which was surprising since it was my very first time doing this. Except the hole in the right knee keeps getting bigger...hmm, not sure how to stop that from happening. Any ideas?

Shirt from Old Navy; Jeans from American Eagle (DIY); Belt from Joe; Purse was gifted; Flats from Smart Set; Sunglasses from F21

Today boyfriend wanted to take a break from studying, so we decided to take a walk around our city.  I'm posing on the steps of some random arts building that I can't remember the name of... It was a nice day earlier, but as soon as the clouds moved in, the temperature dropped 5 degrees and this shirt was no longer enough.  Right after these photos I stole boyfriend's sweater. The weather was much more bearable after putting that on :)

And.... I'm done finals for the semester!! Woohoo! Bring on the summer job :)
