double the denim

I love denim on denim: it’s simple and effortless, a no-brainer when you feel like you have “nothing to wear,” and most important, it’s all kinds of comfortable. I think the trick to pulling it off in a polished way is picking quality pieces, and mixing shades and textures on the top and bottom.

It’s easy to get denim shirt fever and end up with a dozen variations in your closet. But when it comes down to it, two is plenty: a boyfriend-fit long sleeve button down that can do double duty as a shirt and jacket, and a short sleeve chambray tee.

  6. When it comes to denim, I’ve been really getting into buying darker/raw denim. What do you think about them?

    Ah.. the Canadian Tuxedo, if done right, it is SO right!
    I gotta disagree with you though… you can never have two many denim shirts in your closet :)

  23. Love the Canadian Tuxedo look! I find some shades don’t always match together really well though so sometimes I have a hard time getting that exact look I want.

    I did double denim a long time ago and remember that someone made fun of me. And now it’s cool. Well, look who’s ahead of the trend now.

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
