Denim on denim

Sunnies: Tom Ford (exact in gold here) | Necklace: Express | Bag: Chanel (budget option) | Top: JCrew Factory  | Bracelet: Express (exact in gold here) | Bottoms: Express (option) | Shoes: Kate Spade (option, budget option)

I eased into the denim on denim trend a few weeks ago here with some subtle pattern mixing to distract you a bit. Today, I decided to just jump in head first with some neon heels on my feet as the exclamation point. What inspired me to be so bold? It was this pin here.

To be honest, I was feeling extra uninspired this weekend when I was trying to plan outfits for the week. There are some weeks when I can just grab and go. I feel like we're at the point in the season where nothing is as exciting to wear anymore as when the weather first turned and I'm getting excited to mix things up again with fall. I guess that's why Nordstrom planned the Anniversary Sale so aptly in July! I'm driving up to Chicago on Saturday actually - just a day trip to shop with my Nordstrom SA. Yep, that's loyalty, folks, but we both couldn't stand to be apart!! 


SHOP THE LOOK:

  2. I love this outfit- especially the neon yellow heels! And it's funny but it really doesn't read "denim on denim." And I knew you were going to Chicago, but not just for shopping! OMG!!! ha ha ha. That is too awesome. I heart you. :)

    1. When I first bought this bag, or when I was debating getting this bag, one of the reasons that sold me was that it is unique in color, for sure! I haven't seen another one like it since, so I'm very glad I took the plunge! Thanks for the nice note!

  14. Love a good denim on denim look. Those jeans are so flattering on you! When its actually cool enough for me to wear jeans again, I'll have to try Express denim for sure.
