Denim Days

Outfit 1: Shirt Old Navy/ Jeans Old Navy/ Scarf Gypsy 05/ Heels from random boutique in Milan/ Sunglasses Lookmatic

Outfit 2: Shirt Old Navy/ Jean Jacket Old Navy/ Pants Old Navy/ Flats Madewell (similar style, similar pattern)/ Necklace Bar III/ Sunglasses Ray Ban

Even though I describe my style as very feminine, it’s not always that practical to wear dresses or skirts with heels everyday…especially living in San Francisco. There is always a slight chill and  the hills make walking in anything but flats nearly impossible. My everyday work attire usually incorporates some sort of denim with flats or comfortable pumps and remains very similar on the weekends as well.  When we have free time, Thomas and I love to be outdoors- whether it’s walking around our neighborhood or heading to the beach. So, being comfortable is always key and he does not feel pity for me if I insist on wearing heels and then have blisters covering my feel from the hills. And trust me, I’ve learned my lesson by now.

Lately, with my style, my quote has been “less is more”. Not less clothes, but less clutter. I’m drawn to more simple, classic looks. Some basic pieces like a white button up, a classic dark wash skinny jean or a denim jacket end up being the most worn items in my closet for this reason. Here I’m wearing Old Navy’s “Diva” skinny jeans in “rinse” and their denim jacket in “dark worn”. Honestly, these are the first jeans that I haven’t had to get hemmed in years! The fit is spot on and I love a dark wash because they are so much more versatile.  I’m also clearly having a polka dot shoe moment, but that’s beside the point..

Great outfits. I especially love those super cute red polka dot shoes.

I hope you’ll keep an eye out on my blog later today. I’ll be featuring this as one of the looks I love today.

Those jeans DO look great on you. Actually, they look like they were made for you…the perfect fit. Love both of these looks! It only goes to show that you don’t have to over accessorize to look glam :)

I especially love the first look because you’re right, it’s a classic look, but I love the pop of red here and there to freshen up the colors!

I love all the pops of red in your first outfit! So fitting for Valentine’s Day and spring in general. Red is such a bold and flattering color — I’ve decided to try to be brave and hope to integrate it into my trusty and sometimes “safe” wardrobe of gray, black, navy, and stripes.

Your red heels are beyond words! What a great find and keepsake from your Italian adventure!

I agree with your sentiment about “less is more.” It really is and can be difficult when we are told and encouraged that “more is more.” Sometimes more it just plain too much. And that applies to everything.

You managed to turn a simple item, the white button down, into something so chic and pretty. Also, my heart melts for tulips and I love them with the red shoes too!
