Denim on denim

denim on denim style

I finally worked up some courage for another OOTD post :D . Autumn is one of my favorite seasons in terms of fashion and style. To me, this time of the year is all about layers, chunky knits and… you guessed it: denim! ;)

I remember once reading a fashion guru Tim Gunn’s column in one of the magazines in which he said that jeans are big “yes” but “jeggings”, on the other hand, are a huge “no”. I don’t care if Kate Moss herself gave me a call and told me the same thing, I love my jeggings and I ain’t giving them up. Abercrombie & Fitch probably makes the best jeggings, like, everrr. They look just like jeans, but feel as comfy and snug as leggings. It’s like getting best of both worlds. This pair is probably one of my favorites, love the color, the fit and the things they do to my butt…. They just make it look good. There, I said it. The only thing missing is the front pockets, which I have to say I found to be quite annoying while taking these pictures. I didn’t know what to do with my hands (still getting used to being in front of the camera) and kept trying to put my hands in the front pockets.

I also bought my first slouch fedora hat few months a go, and even though at first I wasn’t too sure about it, I now wish I could wear it everyday. For some reason I always thought that my face is way too round and my head is too big to pull it off, but I guess you don’t know these things unless you try them :) .

My heels are by Steve Madden and they’re probably one of my favorite pairs of shoes that I own, they’re surprisingly comfortable. They also have these cute, simple ankle straps, but I took them them off today. I actually wore them to court on the day I got married. I had to walk through these steep-ass stairs and the court clerk said “guuurrl you better be careful with those heels!” “No worries-I said- I got this!”. I might have tripped once or twice, but didn’t fall ;)

This bag, LV Speedy 35 in Damier Azur Canvas is one of my most treasured pieces from my closet. I have two other LV bags, but this one was my first and will always have a special place in my heart. I remember saving money for it for months and months, while working and being in college. I’ve had it for years and still love it just as much as on the day I got it.

It was actually freezing cold this morning when we were taking these pictures, so I have to give special thanks to my beloved hubby who helped me take these :) .

  • Great OOTD! I stay clear of the denim on denim look for fear of getting it wrong… but you definitely pulled it off!

    • Aww, thanks so much Lindsey!

As Jimi would say “Hey Foxy laaaady!” Seriously that song was going round my head as I was reading this haha :P You have such an eye for putting casual looks together that work in harmony yet are stylish, YOU-nique, and are all so fashionably flawless. What a queen! The look suits you so very well, it’s just such a gorgeous style from head to toe. And the fedora on you!

    You really look very professional model like and your hubby did a great job as a photographer!

    Oh wow, I don’t think those look like the typical jeggings at all. They look just like jeans! I think the bad stigma with jeggings come from the cheap leggings you get at Target or Walgreens that are basically painted to look like leggings. Whatever, your outfit looks good to me!

  • Such a cute look! Gorgeous!

  • I love this post! I’m not the biggest fan on denim on denim just cause it generally stands out and makes such a statement, but this outfit is just the right balance and is super gorgeous!! xx

    • Ahh I know, it’s difficult to balance it out, I tried it with a dark denim shirt and it just wasn’t working. Looked a lot better with this light one :) Thanks so much!

  • Yay!!! Another outfit post, I was so hoping you would do more, as you are so pretty and you’re first outfit post was just amazingg. I am loving the denim on denim with the Fedora – it has an awesome 70s vibe that I just love. You are definitely a natural in front of the camera, so I hope you will find your confidence to do more shoots as you were made for it. Those heels are out of sight too girl, I would probably break my neck in them, but you work them like a pro.

    You’re a star, don’t ever forget it :)

    • Naaww thanks so much Gems, you’re the sweetest!! I’m so glad you liked this post! I really wanted to do another one of these, but always end up talking myself out of it hehe ;).

      Haha those heels are definitely a bit high, but they’re actually quite comfy :D Thanks so much again Gems! <3

  • LOve love love those heels!!! I just wish I knew how to walk in high heels xD

    I love the LV bags…I want to get a Neverfull, but they’re so pricey…
