Denim on Denim

I’ve been a bit leery to try the denim on denim trend, even though I’ve seen other people pull it off. Something in my psyche tells me it’s wrong. I sort of cheated in my first attempt at denim on denim by putting a bright sweater over my polka dot chambray top. I decided it still counted because I would wear the outfit without the sweater if I got too hot. Since the top is a significantly different shade of blue and has a pattern, I think it works. I should’ve taken a photo without the sweater so you can help me decide if it looks great or if I’m crazy. Do you denim + denim?

Layer Under

I regularly think about what I can add on top of my outfit–a cardigan, jacket, scarf, etc. But layering underneath is just as interesting, and even better because it’s unexpected. This dress looks cute on it’s own, but there’s so much more visual interest with the chambray underneath plus the vest on top. So the next time you’re getting dressed, think about what you could layer under, not just over 😉
