How We Wore It | Denim on Denim

I was a little bit nervous about trying to do denim on denim this month. I'd seen it done but never tried it myself for fear of not doing it 'right' but I realized that there are a lot of different ways to wear denim on denim and you know what? If an outfit makes you feel beautiful and stylish, then it is 'right'. You do you, girl! Wear whatever you want and makes you feel good and don't worry about what anyone else thinks! At least that's what I tell myself ;).

I will admit that I consulted my sister on this and she gave me some great insight. At first, I was thinking that the only way you can wear denim on denim is when the types of denim are significantly different colors like one really dark wash piece with a lighter color. However, apparently, it's in style right now wear two pieces of denim that almost match? I had no idea!

Next, I went to my trusted friend, Pinterest, and found a bunch of options that I really liked but this one stood out to me as being something I would actually wear so I recreated the look with clothes from my own closet.

Here's my version of this adorable denim on denim outfit! 

Thank you sooooooooo much to Brittany Lowry who took these photos and made me feel like a million bucks in this outfit <3. 

I love this casual denim look and you can bet your bottom dollar I'll be recreating this outfit over and over from here on out. I AM an outfit repeater and I'm not ashamed of it. 

Be sure to check out my amazing friends' posts of how they wore denim on denim!

Jeans: American Eagle (on sale right now!)
Top: Old. Similar here.
Denim Jacket: Forever 21
Hat: Old. Love this, this, and this!
Shoes: Old. Love these, these, these, and THESE! Can you really tell I love runners (for my Canadians)/tennis shoes (for my Americans)? Cuz I really do love them so much. Nike's are my favorite!

Here are some other denim pieces that I'm currently loving!

  1. Cute! I think you rocked this challenge. My favorite way to wear denim-on-denim is to wear my ripped black jeans with a chambray shirt. It's technically denim-on-denim but very chill.

    1. I love that! I have a similar outfit that I wear all the time! Such a classic!!
