A Dose of Denim

Can you believe this is only the second denim on denim outfit I’ve ever worn? The first one didn’t even make it onto the blog. For some reason this trend has always either intimidated me or just not felt like me. My fall capsule wardrobe is changing that. I’m embracing the ease of mix and match separates – and that includes this chambray shirt with dark wash skinny jeans. This relaxed look of an unbuttoned chambray shirt, cozy scarf, skinny jeans and boots is winning me over.

What do you think? What’s your favorite way to wear denim on denim?

A Dose of Fall Comfort

Some Mondays just call for comfort and today was definitely one of them. Despite the change in daylight savings time, I still had a terrible time getting out of bed this morning. That coupled with a stressful day ahead and it was all I could do to reach for a cozy sweater, leggings and boots and drag myself to Starbucks for my first holiday drink of the season.

Ease and comfort are exactly why I decided to experiment with a fall capsule wardrobe. A closet full of easy favorites makes getting dressed each day a breeze.

A Dose of Blush and Gray

I know it’s been a while, but I think I’ll save the dramatic tale of my life lately for another post. Thanks to these lovely photos from Callie¬†though, I feel like I’m coming back with a bang! This outfit was definitely one of my favorites this spring. When the midi trend started popping up, I thought there was no way it would work for me. Although midi skirts look totally glamorous and sophisticated on a multitude of bloggers, the fact that I don’t wear heels seemed to count me out.

A skirt that awkwardly cuts me off mid-calf without the lengthening effect of heels? No thanks.

Then I saw this outfit from Ladies in Navy¬†and knew I had to make myself an ethereal, ballerina-inspired skirt. And you know what? I love it and all it’s midi-length awkwardness, especially when paired with an equally ballet-esque blush tank. You’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of this skirt throughout the summer. It might even be worth digging out the heels for!
