Happy Tuesday friends! I am currently writing this post beach side from 30A (a travel post to come on that soon, but for now make sure you are following along on Instagram). Today, I want to talk to you about one of my favorite trends that you wear every season a different way. I am talking about denim; More specifically, denim on denim (AKA: A Texas tuxedo). I can’t tell you guys enough how much wear I have gotten from this denim jacket (like here and here) and my favorite go-to denim shorts that I practically live in all Summer long. These are both must haves in your wardrobe and can be fairly easy to mix and match separately, but how in the heck do you wear them together? Denim on the top AND bottom– gasp! Yes, it can be done, AND its super cute!
The number one rule is you have to have different washes of denim on the top and bottom for contrast. I went with my light wash denim jacket on top, and a darker wash jean short on the bottom. To break it up, a solid color cami (like this one) underneath is always a win. If you know me, you also know I love some kind of pop of color! Whether it be in my shoes, statement earrings, or a handbag– I feel like that totally makes the outfit and is my favorite personal touch that I feel like is “me”. This multicolor clutch is a statement for sure and I can’t believe how much I have carried this clutch already. It literally goes with anything– I love spicing up some of my favorite solid and basic pieces with this!
Now that we have chatted denim on denim, where in the heck do you find these go-to, never fail, wear a million times denim pieces? I got chu. Nordstrom, of course. Not only do they have the most selection at all price points (which I am SO impressed with their denim shorts this season), but they also offer free shipping and returns which I always love when it comes to ordering denim and staple pieces because I will often order two sizes and exchange the other that doesn’t fit.
Below I have rounded up my favorite denim shorts, denim jackets, and fun clutches for a pop of color! Let me know if you need any help at all finding the perfect pair of denim shorts, a denim jacket, or just anything in general to get you ready for Summer!
