Save Or Splurge: Distressed Denim Shorts

For me this summer is all about the denim short. There are so many variations of them that I had to decide what characteristics where important to me. I am currently loving distressed boyfriend shorts with a light wash, and thats just what I found. These Rag & Bone pair are fantastic but with a price tag of over $200 I quickly looked for alternatives. I will gladly be saving with this pair from American Eagle. So tell me are you saving or splurging on this summer staple?

So, here it is the hundred and one things I plan to do in one thousand and one days.
