This past week I have been on the move!! If you follow me on Instagram stories then you got a little glimpse into what I was calling The Tour De California! We drove all over the state but we spent most of our time on the central coast where we hiked, admired wildlife, drank wine, sat on the beach, and enjoyed each others company. Besides all the great activities, being in Northern California was so fun because I got to pull out all of my favorite sweaters and booties for the 60 degree days. Have you ever visited Big Sur or the Central Coast of California? It’s the most beautiful and dramatic coastline I have ever seen, absolutely gorgeous, add it to your must-visit list!!
I had the best time exploring California with my friends from Birmingham, AL but am so ready to spend some time cuddled up on the couch with my cats and catch up on The Real Housewives. The older I get the more it feels like I always need a vacation from my vacation, whos with me?
While unpacking this weekend I noticed I packed an abnormal amount of denim for my trip to Big Sur. I had my favorite jeans, my denim jacket that I never leave home without, multiple chambray tops and of course my Levi’s jean skirt. Anyone else obsess over denim in the fall like I do?
To share my love of denim, I put together my all-time favorite, affordable denim pieces. All denim picks listed in this post are under $50 because well that’s just how I shop. #frugal
I have always been a huge fan of the Canadian Tuxedo so I probably pair denim with denim far more often than the average girl. I blame Justin & Britney, when they wore those all denim looks to the VMA’s in 2001 I was in the 7th grade and in love with those tacky, matching outfits.
I mean I understand why Britney and Justin chose those outfits. Denim is such a great versatile material, it can be dressed up for a date night or dressed down for a casual, comfortable look. Denim has been in style for over 100 years and it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon. The cut of our jeans may change but clothing made of denim will be around for eternity.
The key to really pulling off a denim on denim look is to pick the denim colors in different shades. Maybe a dark jacket on top and a light rinse jean on the bottom or like I did for this outfit where I paired a dark skirt with a light chambray shirt on top. When I am pairing denim on denim I also like to choose slightly different textures of denim, not a must, just something I like to do. For instance; this outfit, I am wearing a super lightweight chambray shirt with a heavy, non-stretch jean skirt; its the perfect combination of varying materials.
