the blues.





H&M chambray shirt and black stone ring; secondhand belt; forever 21 skinny jeans, boyfriend watch, stud hinge bracelet, and chain bracelet; marc by marc jacobs pyramid stud bracelet; CHRISHABANA triple spike necklace; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring and claw ring.

see, i do like color...as long as it's muted shades of blue.
you've probably all seen H&M's huge denim/blue campaign by now, and we are encouraged to wear those to work in support of it. i was stoked to play with all of the denim already in my closet and as a result put together this look - my version of the texas tuxedo, haha. i already love it. picture me with my frye 8R harness boots too.

what do you guys think - it's already been seen everywhere from alexa chung to lookbook.nu, but does denim on denim tickle your fancy?

oh and big shout out to rachel p., my first reader who's recognized me in public (on a hectic day at work no less)!
if you couldn't tell, i was shocked/flattered/embarassed!
thanks for all of your kind words. =)

I really love the simplicity of this outfit. I sort of am obsessed with denim. even though i don't wear a lot of it myself... I am always incredibly jealous and inspired of those who own great denim pieces. that's just me.

I have been following your blog for a long while now and i really love it, i was wondering if you would like to swap links?
lemme know on my blog <3

No, you work the denim on denim look well, I think it's hard to carry it off. The belt breaks it up nicely, good luck!
It would be mine

NIceee!... As long as there's a significant difference between the two shades of blue (or black or grey) denims, i would say that the "denim on denim" trend definitely tickles my fancy :)

I am all about the denim on denim! I posted my own version on lookbook.nu. H&M has THE BEST light washed denim, which inspired my take (I got the sqin jeans, I believe).
I really like the wash of your shirt here.

tayler - i'm kind of exactly the same way! i have a few denim pieces that i love to death and i am wearing them more and more lately, which is definitely a good thing. and i'd love to swap links =)

leflassh. - thanks dajana!

annachiara - you're always wayyyy too kind =)

gon - oh i'm sure it would look good on you, but if you're not comfortable with it and it's not for you, then it's just not for you =)

anon 10:49 - thanks girl! xo

phyllis - it takes confidence, that's for sure, but i think anyone can pull it off seamlessly with the right pieces!

distrikmode - yes, exactly! =)

heidy f.m kalalo - i saw it, and i love it, thank you so so much! xo

frankie - yep, that's the same shirt. i like your look!

ericadanielle - i actually like mismatching my belt and shoes, and with this outfit i wore my black frye 8R harness motorcycle boots!

neekoh - yah glad you like it too! i love H&M's sqin/slim jeans in all washes =)
