Denim on denim

[Summer 30 for 30: Outfit 3]
Denim shirt: Gap (thrifted)
Belt: Target
Jeans: Old Navy
Wedges: Target

I'm pretty hesitant to jump on new trends (or, in this case, a resurrected trend) but I've been wanting to try out the denim on denim after seeing it on a bunch of other bloggers. I wasn't ready to wear it to work, so I wore in on my day off for running errands at McDonald's, Costco and the mall. I know, my life is so glamorous. I usually like to "test out" outfits before I wear them for real (aka, to somewhere where there are people I know, not just random strangers) and decide if I like it or not.

I'm still not sure if I liked it though. I did, however, decide it was too hot to be wearing while chasing after a two year old through the mall. A two year old who saw mommy sitting on the rock and insisted that he sit on the rock too. I'm setting a bad example.


  1. I like it! I think using the belt to divide the two shades of denim really helps to make it look deliberate and pulled together! :)

  2. I love the jean on jean look! It looks awesome on you! You pull it off well!

  3. i can never do denim on denim together but you're inspiring me. you look lovely!
    plus the baby is adorable!

  4. Loved your blog! I fell in love with that kid! so cute <3

    check out my blog

  5. AH, Mister P, you're killin' me!!!  So cute!  And Momma is looking good, too, I think the shades of denim contrast perfectly :)

  6. I love people who set bad examples for kids! Jack once was making faces back and forth with a kid on a greyhound bus and put one of the complimentary bags on his head like a hat... well, the kid's head was a lot smaller and put the bag over his face - the mom was not happy. P looks super cute and excited to be on that rock, I think it's worth it.

    Jean on jean is a scary thing, especially if you're old enough to remember the 80s and 90s. I think you did a great job with it but I understand if it still makes you feel icky, it's why I have yet to try it out even though I usually love how others style it.

  7. Haha! Jack's story is hilarious. And yeah, I totally remember the 80s and 90s. That's why I'll never be able to wear jean jackets even though they're supposed to be "in" this year! :(

  8. I do like it... the belt is perfect to break it up!

  9. Hello! I found you through Kendi's blog! Love the denim on denim look, I'm hoping to try it soon, too. Your son is so cute!!

  10. Aw what a handsome little fella! And that's a great top you're wearing.

    A combination I always stuggle with, love your style! Anne x 

  12. This is still a trend I really want to try, but I haven't found a chambray (or similar) shirt that fits well. And it's a million degrees too hot to wear more than my underwear.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. It means the world to me! :)
