I have always loved denim. Traditional blue denim is still my favorite, but I also love colored. Today there are so many wonderful colors of denim to choose from. What is it about denim that I love so much?
When I was growing up, I lived in the country. We had a good sized yard and fields all around, as well as a creek behind the house that my brothers and I used to traverse, fish, catch turtles and frogs in and ice skate on in the winter time. Being that I was a tomboy, my clothing pieces of choice were jeans and tees, or sweatshirts in the cooler weather. When I got my first denim jacket I thought I was the coolest thing around. Even now, slipping into a denim jacket always makes me feel like a girl who can take on the world. Denim is tough, and durable and that is how I feel when I wear it. It helps that denim today has spandex and other stretchy fabrics in it, to make it comfortable as well.
My jeans are my new loves! They are Rock & Republic brand from Kohl's. My favorite part are the zippers. Ha, ha. I know! It's the simple things. In addition they are extremely comfortable. Everything in this outfit is thrifted and obscure brands except the gray Keds, the jeans and the jewelry.
This no name tee, is a bit big, but it is comfy and casual and sometimes that is just what I need. You can see that I am not overly done with my make up. I always put make up on, but sometimes in a more simplistic and minimal way.
I added this Cold Water Creek woven bag for a pop of color. I love the texture of it. Here is a fuzzy close up. I wasn't on my photography game when I took these.
My good old Keds!
Jeans and denim are great for those days you just want to be comfortable, but still want to look put together.
How about you, friends? Do you like denim? Is a denim jacket one of your go to items, or you more of a sweater kind of gal? As always I love to hear you thoughts.
I've included a few shopping links for other Sanctuary jackets. None of these are the traditional denim jacket like I have on, but they are cute!
Have a great weekend everyone!
