It could be just the midweek slump or it could be the fact that I work 12+ hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays but I am wiped out and ready for the weekend (and Burlington’s dreary weather is not helping.) Believe me I’m as wore out as I look!
Denim on denim is a new concept for me so I eased into this hot trend slowly pairing a faux denim pencil skirt with a thrifted mens chambray button up. Using contrasting washes and textures when pairing denim will help you avoid the Canadian tuxedo look. The pencil skirt has a wonderful sheen, almost sparkly quality to it (that my craptastic camera failed to pick up) which I thought added a little extra oomph to the otherwise laid back look.
I choose a wide double braid belt to help break up the denim love fest and to bring out the dark almost black brown spots in my cheetah print flats. I know mixing black and brown is considered a faux pas by some but I figured if I was already rocking double denim that a little black and brown mixing couldn’t hurt.
Do my two fashion wrong make a fashion right?
Chambray Button-up: Goodwill
Double Braid Belt: Forever 21
Pencil Skirt: Forever 21
Tights: The Sox Market
Cheetah Print Flats: Target
Watch: Vintage (D’s dad picked it up while traveling in the Caribbean)
This watch has quickly become one of my most treasured pieces of jewelry. When I saw it on D’s desk I immediately pounced on it (he’s not much for jewelry/accessories) but clearly his loss is my gain! D’s dad got it for him from a flea market/bazaar type place while he was traveling in in the Caribbean. I love the band and the large vintage face. I can’t wait to wear it this summer with cutoffs, a white tee, strappy sandals and my straw fedora!
A few weeks ago I had the battery replaced at a local jewelry store and the jeweler asked me if I was interested in selling it! I of course replied no but I was excited that someone else found this piece as special as I do!
