As I was putting on my office-y clothes this morning, I got a call saying I didn't need to come in. At that point, my style mood took a very casual turn, so I decided to try out the denim-on-denim trend. I would have liked to button the top, but it's just too long. A shorter (but still loose-fitting) denim button-up is definitely on my list for spring, so I kept an eye out while thrifting this afternoon. Every single denim shirt I found (both women's and men's) was adorned with hilariously tacky embroidery, from flowers to basketballs to Looney Tunes. Sigh.
It's probably no secret that I'm a die-hard denim fan, but I feel like jeans have sort of a bad reputation. I realize that they are the epitome of casual American style. I know everyone and their mom and dog wears them all the time and that fashion-minded people set themselves apart by not wearing them. And I'll be the first to admit that they are a cop-out of sorts. I'm probably most creative when forced to not wear jeans. But, man. I love jeans. And I always think fashion bloggers (who tend not to wear them very much) look amazing when they do. Anyway, my ode to denim is complete.
I'm excited to try this trend in different, more feminine ways. I think my next combination might be this same top buttoned and belted over my denim leggings with tall heels and jewelry. Also, I'm sure my trusty high-waisted denim skirt will come into play once the weather warms. How do you guys feel about the denim-heavy look or jeans in general?
