trends that make you go hmm... denim on denim

Are you familiar with the "Canadian Tuxedo"? While often considered a mistake of the 90's (there is even a website dedicated to the worst offenders), denim-on-denim looks have lost the boy band stigma, and are once again fashionable! 
(I wonder if my children will question this in another 20 years!?)
I think the proprietor of thecanadiantuxedo.com said it best:
"Sometimes it’s important to look your best. Sometimes everything else is in the wash. Sometimes you just don’t need a reason. In these situations, it’s good to know there’s a fashionable option to ensure you feel comfortable as well as good looking. Couple your jeans with your denim jacket in a delicious double denim ensemble that tells the world just how super cool you are"

The runways and street-style sidewalks have embraced the head-to-toe denim esthetic (hello Spring 2010), have you? I was reluctant to give it a try (aka late to the party again), but now that I have embraced this lifestyle, I think I'm hooked (it doesn't hurt that my chambray shirt is easily my favorite shirt in my closet!) Good thing fashion is a little behind here in Nashville. I also am looking forward to pairing my chambray shirts with colored/patterned denim come spring - so fun!

What do you think? Love it? Hate it?
Keep it classy internets


  1. LOVE it! Especially with that necklace! :)

  2. Love this whole outfit!  I've been looking for a chambray shirt, and I like how you paired it with darker denim.  And LOVE the necklace!


  3. Love this look! You can't go wrong with a classic chambray shirt and there's so many ways to style it!


  4. Your blog is TOO cute, love it. Love denim on denim too - did a post this week on owning a denim shirt being an essential! You have a new follower. Lots of love from London, UK xx


  5. I love it! I'm thinking about doing an outfit like that myself. I think it's funny how 5 years ago it would have been a huge fashion faux pas haha.


  6. I love the look on you!  You are adorable!!

  7. Love it...because you are wearing dark bottom with light top, not crazy about the same colors of denim.

  8. I love style. Simple as that! No matter what is in, what is out. I <3 ladies who wear what they want and love it. So naturally, I love your style!! 

    Happy Friday!

  9. I LOVE it! The necklace totally pops against the blue denims... So super cute on you!

  10. I am also reluctant about this, but I think the key is to keep the shades contrasting. I prefer the dark denim with the lighter top. You did a fabulous job. I also LOVE the necklace. 

  11. I highly recommend this Chambray shirt from J.Crew! I have been living in it this fall/winter, and can't wait to style it fro spring/summer as well!

  12. haha, i know right!? 10 years ago is was a no-no to mix metals, brown & black, and denim on denim!

  13. exactly - still not sure about light denim on light denim... thank you for your comment!

  14. yes, I agree totally! not about the trend, but all about how you rock what you wear everyday! thank you for your comment. I enjoyed finding your blog from the IT list, and can't wait to read more!

  15. thank you! this necklace is huge, but someone it goes with everything I pair it with.

  16. i love denim on denim and you rocked it well! your necklace is great, by the way.

  17. Denim never dies! Love it. Thank you
