You know those trends that you like on others but can’t ever seem to get right on yourself?
That’s me with this denim on denim business.
You may recall that I wrote a post on it back when I very first started this blog. (See it here, if you so desire.) I mentioned that I wanted to avoid looking like a farmer or Britney Spears in the late 90s. And after searching Pinterest and other blogs, I thought I had found a way to do just that.
Last Thursday was the day I busted out my denim top and jeans…together, at last.
But…I. Just. Couldn’t.
In my desperation to find something to break up the sea of blue, I stumbled upon this Torrid Top from earlier in the summer.
I hadn’t really thought of wearing it over long-sleeves before but I was willing to try anything that morning (except pure denim on denim). Fortunately, I had also picked up a much-needed, thin, leopard belt at Ross the day before so I threw that on as well as my leopard heels and stood back from the mirror to assess the damage.
Whaddya know?! I didn’t hate it.
In fact, I was quite pleased with this impromptu look. And technically speaking, I’m still wearing denim on denim. I just had to do it my way. (No surprise there!)
I love it when cute looks are born out of desperation on a rushed work morning. It doesn’t happen often but that just makes me appreciate it even more when it does!
