As I mentioned in a recent links post, I was super excited to see that Karen Kane is offering a distressed jean this season. I honestly never thought I’d be a distressed jean person AT ALL, but now some of my favorite pairs are the ones that look torn to shreds. This pair is relatively subtle as distressing goes, with most of the fraying over the left knee, and they’re just as comfy and well-made as my other Karen Kane pairs. And they’re a pull-on, so no bulky fly! YES!

It was art fair weekend this past weekend in Minneapolis, with Uptown and Powderhorn in full effect. So I finally busted out the true summer clothes – tanks, floaty skirts, and sandals – for the requisite hours of slow walking. We had gorgeous weather, but I was still glad to have gone for light layers.
