Denim Faves

This week's prompt at The Creative Closet is "Your Favorite Denim." I'm pretty obsessed with denim, so asking me to choose a favorite is like asking me to choose a favorite child. Actually, it's a lot harder than that--I only have one child! (Jona's my favorite, by the way.) But I have a lot of denim, and I love all of it, so I cheated a little. I'm wearing two of my favorite denim pieces: my jean jacket and my dark skinny jeans. No surprise that those are two of my favorites, they make all-too-frequent appearances here.

I remember reading somewhere that the "athleisure" trend is starting to overtake denim. I have no idea if that's true or not, but I do know that for me, denim will always reign supreme.

Okay, what's your favorite denim?

  3. no trend will ever replace denim. Denim isn't a trend, it's a part of life. And denim and stripes will always be my favorite.

  4. I mean, athleisure is big- but a replacement for denim. No wayyyyy. My fave right now is super skinny, a bit cropped at the ankle, and maybe a busted-out knee. :)

  8. I will always heart denim! Denim is my favorite, hands down. I wish I could wear it every day of the week, truly. I love both of your favorite pieces, the jeans fit you so well! I would have to say my dark skinny jeans and my jean jacket are probably my favorites too!

  10. Love this look and how you pulled the double denim together. Those coral shoes are really cute too. My favorite denim has to be my denim jacket. I've had it for years now and depend on it.

  11. Thanks Megan! I definitely depend on my denim jacket too--in fact I put it away for winter but ended up getting it back out!

  14. Love the denim on denim! The stripes mix it up so well. I'm also really loving the way you introduced red and turquoise into the outfit with your necklace and shoes!

  20. The muffins were pretty good, and healthy too!

  21. Spring denim perfection! You could totally do both trends by swapping out the flats for some cool sneakers, but I love the coral flats (obviously - twinsies!) for a springy pop. Such a classic but still fun look.

  22. Thanks Elle! I'm such a denim lover and I needed some color too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks Anne! I've really been needing to bring out the color lately, hence the coral flats. But I did pick up some white sneakers (in my search to find slip-ons I tried on some white chuck taylors and couldn't pass them up...here's hoping I can keep them clean) and I agree that they would look good as well!

  24. I LOVE this outfit. Double denim and stripes?! You can't go wrong... two of my favourite things. I think I might need to nab this look for the weekend! ;)

  25. Thanks Veronika! Yep, denim and stripes are my favorites too :)

  26. Love this look, super cute on you! I'd say my fav denim is distressed boyfriend jeans.

  27. Thank you! I agree, I love my boyfriend jeans too and I'm hoping to find an even better pair this spring :)

  28. I love a good pair of dark wash skinny jeans, but I have SUCH a hard time finding jeans that fit me, are flattering, are affordable, and hold up over time. SO...I'm going to say my favorite denim is a denim jacket. I love throwing my jacket on over any and all dresses :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm so with you Brynn! This denim jacket has been a favorite for years, but these jeans have a shorter lifespan I'm sure. I love them now, but they will no doubt fade, get stretched out, get holes, etc. Does the perfect pair of jeans that actually lasts exist?!

  30. I really need to get some more tops to wear to work - I realized a couple of months ago that I only had 4 tees and 0 short-sleeved blouses, which just isn't going to cut it for the spring/summer. I managed to find a few short-sleeved tees on clearance at Target, which was great, but I'm hoping to find some work-appropriate short-sleeved tops as well. That's probably my biggest focus right now :)

  31. I'm on a similar hunt myself--I have more tees than anything too and I'd like to swap at least one out for something that can be a little dressier. Good luck!
