Sunday Market Day ... and Hello Autumn

After stocking up on some goodies for the week at Kensington Market, the beautiful autumn afternoon beckoned for us to keep enjoying the outdoors a little longer.

So I changed into heels and we took a little detour on our way home to
Yorkville for a little stroll through the parkette.

Distressed Jeans ~ Yes - Women over 40 CAN WEAR THEM!

There has been a lot of conversation and opinions on whether women of a certain age can/should wear distressed jeans - from blogs to social media and talks among friends. For the most part from what I have been exposed to - it's been a "to each their own" kinda of response. But the small negative percentage was keeping me from giving this look a try .

I have to admit I also wasn't too crazy about showing off skin ... 
but I was drawn to distressed look! Certainly there had to be a distressed jean out there that was a suitable comprise? 

And there was!!!  
I stumbled across these from Forever 21 and was surprised to discover the ripped areas have a panel behind them!! COMPROMISE!!! ... YES...!!!

And they were perfect for a night out in the city with friends ...

We attended a CD release party for Shayne Stolz this summer if you haven't heard his CD you can check it out here - I mentioned Shayne and his angelic voice on the blog before and this CD is brilliant. Also he lives in Toronto ... and you gotta support local talent.

Now back to the jeans ...

Ladies ... if you like the look of distressed jeans - but the whole revealing skin is holding you back, Give these a try ... age really is but a number ... so I say wear the jeans that you feel comfortable in. BTW I'm 50 - and I think I'm still able to rock these ...

Outfit details: distressed jeans:  Life in Progress - Forever21; white top: White House/Black Market; wedge sandals - Stuart Weitzman; tote - Totally MM - Louis Vuitton

You are the curator of your life so live it luxuriously ,
