Do you obsess over denim? I sure do. And if I could wear all of it at once, I would. I mean, I kinda did! Today I am wearing on of my all time favorite styles: Denim on Denim.
In every wardrobe of a classicist, one must always have a denim jacket. I also feel very strongly about owning a great denim skirt & top but if you want, start with the jacket. That’s key. 🔑 BTW, important but random, I cut my hair!! It’s just above my shoulders now all thanks to my cousin from Go Beauty Rush. See her in Santa Monica. She’s wonderful!
A wardrobe must! And it’s a style anyone can do! Have you seen the plus size short skirts on Forever 21? YAAAAAS! This denim skirt was an +H&M find over winter break. The frayed hem gives it a sort of bad @$$ look to it’s throwback color and cut. It’s also high-waisted which helps because I have a Mommy tummy that I need to hide. I’m also very slim (including the hip area) and it gives me a waist.
This thing is ancient! I have had this vest for a very long time and I cropped it myself. I love how after a few washes, the hem became frayed on its own giving it a vintage vibe. This is actually really easy to achieve. Take a pair of scissors, make a cut where you want it to be cropped, wash a few times and all done!
This jacket was a vintage jacket owned by mis suegros and borrowed from my sister in law. It’s a Levis original. It adds a third layer of denim but slightly different color and texture. The same hue can be worn as long as you use different shades of that color.
I used my tribal print backpack that my hubby brought back from Mexico city, a pair of chucks, (because… LA) and an iced coffee! Actually, I tried the new iced coconut milk mocha macchiato from @starbucks. It honestly was okay. I would much rather just stick to my usual iced vanilla macchiato with soy.
