Denim on Denim
Wonder how to mix denims? Don’t want to show up looking silly in a canadian tuxedo (sorry to our canadian friends that’s what we call it)? I decided to attempt the look of mixing denims. The first rule to mixing denims is to make sure the colors are different. This outfit works because the jacket is light and the jeans are dark. i.e this chambray looking jacket with dark washed jeans. I kept this look very paired down with a simple grey tank, layered necklace, and peep toe heels. You could go more “bold” with the look and add in a striped shirt or a bright color under the jacket. But just be sure to not get carried away, you are already mixing two different types of denims, the last thing you need is to add any more busy patterns.
My girlfriend Gwen got me this beautiful necklace for my birthday it is so simple and I love it! I love layering it with my other gold necklace creating more layers! Ladies, I suggest investing in a layered necklace. I took this one to Spain with me last week and it went from being worn with jeans and a tee to being paired with a black dress. It truly is the perfect necklace for travel and for summer! Thanks again GWEN!!
Look 2- There are a few subtle changes in this outfit. The shoes and statement necklace are the biggest ones. Mostly I wanted to take some photos of the magnolia tree blooming in our yard. It is so pretty I can’t help myself from taking a billion photos!
Speaking of more birthday love… my girlfriend Kari got me this statement necklace. I love pairing it with all this denim to create a little “fancier look”!

Ok back to the blooming trees…. I have to share with you some of my iPhone photos! I have been walking around my neighborhood daily taking photos! I have snuck into peoples yards to get the perfect iPhone pic…. I probably look so silly, but oh well there is no shame in my game! The pictures are totally worth it.
I feel like the pictures don’t even do justice to how beautiful the trees are. I have never been a big lover of spring, I’ve always been a fall kinda girl. But I truly fell in love with spring this season. Mostly because I think this is the first time I’ve ever lived in a neighborhood where every single house has multiple flowering trees. I couldn’t get enough and neither can my poor mother. I think I send her 10 photos a day of these beautiful trees.
Cheers and Happy Friday,
