Denim days: Part 1

Hello darlings! Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful Mom’s out there!  I was lucky enough to spend the weekend back home with my incredible mom…who did a stellar job as my photographer for today’s look! Mom’s really are super heros…

Denim has been an iconic star all through the evolution of fashion, and personally, I am a huge fan. Everything from old photos of my mom rocking her denim bell bottoms, to supermodels slaying the streets in Levi’s, inspires me to keep it real with trusty denim.  Back in Junior High, my best friend and I used to have, “who can go the longest without washing their jeans” contests. Call us sick slobs, but we actually were quite on point; it’s best to wash your denim as little as possible, to conserve their shape and style.  For you clean freaks cringing right now, tell yourself every wear, tear, and fade is a reminder of all the awesome people and places that nostalgic piece of denim has experienced with you!

Much to my delight, denim has transitioned into many more things than just jeans! From handbags and shoes, to bikinis and even evening wear, denim is hotter than ever! I’ve been on the search for the perfect dress version for a hot minute, and today I’m presenting y’all my winner by Club Monaco.  I often have great luck with this brand, their pieces are classic with perfectly edgy detail, and their fit is nicely tailored.  If you don’t have the good fortune of living near a Club Monaco store, you can shop online or through Shopbop.  This soft, body-hugging dress is a feminine and elevated version of the old school overall.  I’m showing y’all my styling of choice, bare legs and heels. She could also be layered over a fitted tee, and teamed up with a pair of converse sneakers, for a casual cool look.  This comfy number can easily transition into fall with a pair of tights and ankle booties, or bare legs and over the knee boots.
