If there is one outfit you can never go wrong with is, denim on denim. Just like denim, it’s a classic and classic never goes out of style. I wanted an easy no brainer outfit for work because (and if you’re office allows) go ahead and pull out your denim shirt and rock that denim on denim look. It’s effortless and a no brainer AND you can practically accessorize it in any which way you feel.
I don’t really know what era acid wash became a thing but all I know is that in 5th grade, I started the trend. My mother accidentally bleached my favorite pair of blue jeans. My options were either I wear them or donate them. Being the rebellious, fearless and fashion risk-taker I’ve always been, I said, meh, I’ll wear them to school. The next day at lunch time, Lesly, an oversized flunked out 5th grader had A LOT to say about my “poor girl” jeans but I laughed it out. I admit though, my cheeks got extremely red and I do remember being embarrassed but I got over it and wore them over and over again. As an adult, I’m still wearing acid wash but of course, I traded in the jeans to a top. In order to keep this casual cool, I added a pair or leopard heels and an oversized coat for warmth.

As I mentioned on my previous post, this denim skirt has been my favorite summer piece. I have worn this skirt a million times but here are the three ways, I have blogged about it thus far.The great thing about denim, whether it be jeans, shorts, shirt or a skirt, is that it is very versatile. Denim can be dressed either up or down, the trick is knowing: knowing how to.

I am a huge fan of denim – hence, I own denim tops, skirts, jeans, shorts and dresses. I love the versatility and the comfortability of the fabric. Denim is the one item in your closet that will NEVER go out of style. I was in the mood for a denim skirt and went I remembered I had this acid wash denim shirt, I knew I just had to sport it.
The one thing I love about this outfit is that it looks sporty. The shirt gives the outfit a very relaxed look, although I am wearing heels. The shoes really pull this outfit together by making it look sporty but the skirt adds that splash of feminine. The combination of the acid wash shirt and the ripped skirt, really play into the sportiness and rustic look of this outfit. I wanted to add a dark pop of color so I opted for my red clutch and bold red lips to really seal this look.

I am finally back in town and on my computer! Yay! Life without the internet is hard people!!! Ok, I’m done with the exclamation points. I am happy that I am back in the comfort of my home but sadly I am not 100% settled in. I have to unpack ( I did some serious shopping at the Outlet Malls) and do some serious catching up on school work. Today’s outfit is simple and to the point. I wore denim on denim today and added a bit of chic by wearing gold accents ( shoes, watch etc…).What I love about this outfit is that it is simple and chic – this is definitely one of those laid back easy going outfits.
