Denim For Days

Timeless, impactful, and dynamic are all words that find themselves synonymous with denim. Popular since the 1800s, denim speaks for itself in the timeless department. From work clothes to street style, it's worn a multitude of hats over the years. And nowadays, it's literally being worn as a hat! Because of all of denim's unanimously great qualities, it's the star of my blog this week. Let's dive in! 

Sometimes I'm a "dresses and skirts" kind of girl and other times I'm a "pajamas sneakers donuts whatever is most comfortable" kind of girl. Anyone feel me? That's why I didn't throw on just ANY skirt and top combo for this outfit... I met both my girly-girl and tomboy needs with an effortless denim skirt and classic denim button down. It's elevated, but not exactly "I work at a law firm" either.

I bought the denim skirt for a stellar price at Nordstrom rack (the land where dreams come true) back in February. It's gone down in history as one of my favorite purchases to date, since I can easily dress it up or down. Band tees, stripes, sneakers, heels... the list of possibilities is endless. Bonus--all the pockets are real, thank the Lord! Fake pockets are evil pretenders. The touch of fray around the edge adds a complimentary "relaxed" feel, while the fitted nature of the skirt still gives it that elevated look.

Four score and one hundred years ago, I purchased this denim button down at, you'll never guess, Forever 21! Not only has it's durability been head-nod worthy, but it STILL looks brand new. Because their clothing isn't necessarily known for lasting, I'm not too crazy over Forever 21. BUT, I do advocate certain purchases from the shop. While I don't trust tee shirts and most blouses to continue looking the same four weeks later as when I first bought them, I do trust jackets and denim. Almost every jacket I have purchased from the store I still own and love! All it takes is a little extra love and care than you normally give your other clothes (i.e. always hang it back up, air dry it, take care of stains immediately, etc.) This denim top was an absolute score, so I highly recommend going on a Forever hunt to find one for yourself!

These. Shoes. When I look at these shoes, I imagine burning every other pair of shoes on the planet because this pair deserves to be the only one in existence. (Not really though, boots and sneakers are cool too.) Recently I went into Ross to see if they happened to have a belt I needed. Of course I was tempted into glancing over the shoe aisle as well, and behold! The perfect summer shoe. Black suede midi heels. They fit like a glove, and are totally comfy, especially for heels. I mean c'mon, I'm jumping like three feet off the ground in them! Since that day I've worn them about 472857263758 times and plan on wearing them an infinite amount more. $17 never looked so good! Of course these little heels were my careful finisher of the outfit because I was a little more than slightly obsessed with them (and still am... don't worry, I'm getting help :). Target also carries an almost identical pair, so if you have no luck at Ross, visit Target! They're so worth stalking down. Denim on denim is classy and effortless all at the same time, and I highly encourage a closet with a few different denim options. Skirts, tops, jeans... whatever you fancy, go on a denim hunt and bring home denim you can wear for days! Post your finds on Insta with the tag #denimfordays and let's spread our ideas together!
