OOTD :: of denim and laziness

I am not linking anything on this page because a) they’re all items that are staples and you should either have them in your closet already or, if no, then they are al easily accessible at your favorite shopping mecca, and b) I’m lazy.

Insert raspberry here.

Seriously, folks, this one’s a no-brainer. Denim on denim has been on the trend spectrum for a while now, and the only issue I had with putting together this outfit was trying not to look too 70s (I don’t think I’ve worn my bootcuts since 2011) or too rodeo (I tried different shoes with this length of pant and this look and decided only my trusty cowboy boots would do).

Sadly, I think I failed on both fronts because my husband would not stop teasing me about looking like an extra from Urban Cowboy. I tried to combat this by throwing on my pearls and then, when that didn’t seem to work, a trusty blazer.

The jury’s still out, I think, but all I know is that I’m super comfy in this outfit, it totally works as a casual Friday look, and it meets the week’s theme criteria. That makes it a triple threat win in my book.

  2. You got it. Effortlessly casual, with or without actual effort. Now that’s a style achievement. I like a semi-blingy necklace with blue chambray, but then, I’m a chronic over-do-er. I’m enjoying your commentary at Sylvia’s 40+ project. Keep writing, please. Always a pleasure to read.

    • I’m quite pleased with everyone’s comments about this feeling effortless. Sometimes, when I concoct outfits, I end up feeling overwrought or contrived. I have known for a while, though, that if I had to have a uniform, it would consist of a button down (or its it up?), a blazer and comfy boots. I guess feeling comfortable and confident is key to looking effortless.

      And thanks for mentioning my writing; I hope I’m not writing too much over there. I get wordy sometimes. English major. Go figure.

    • And you did it so well!

      “Effortlessly chic.” I like that! I’m gonna quote you on that to my hubby when he makes fun of me again. ;p

  3. Hmm, I’ve never thought of denim as a pattern before, but it certainly is a very specific fabric. I’ve proudly worn denim on denim for a few years now, usually chambray with dark wash skinny jeans, and either Chucks or ballet flats. I always wear extra jewelry too – this simple look really needs it.

    • Argh! You caught me! I was thinking of doing plaid on plaid but wanted to save that pattern for its own week since it’s a fave. I could’ve done florals but it was a Friday outfit and I wanted to be comfy. So no, denim isn’t a pattern but at least it’s a double. 😉

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
