I never thought I would use this title as a blog post. Denim on denim reminds me of the 80s and more specifically of my bad denim choices during those years. Mainly, acid wash jeans and a matching jacket. But I digress.
Although I have seen other bloggers and fashionistas post pictures of denim on denim, I knew this was a look I couldn’t pull off. Until just a few weeks ago when I didn’t have a choice.
We arrived on the California coast after a few days in the desert. The desert was hot and the coast was 20 degrees cooler!! In my efforts to travel light on this trip, I figured I didn’t need a lot of layers since most of the trip was in Palm Springs. So I wore a jean jacket on the plane with leggings (#cuteoutfit) and packed a pair of jeans. One jacket and one pair of jeans – both denim and both not meant to be worn together.
But on the evening of day one on the coast, I was cold. It was sunny, but cool and windy. So as we headed out for dinner, I broke my rule of no denim on denim.
Much to my surprise, I think it worked! The jacket was much darker than the jeans so there was contrast. #thatsagoodthing
I probably won’t do this again in the near future but I think in despite of my packing fail, I think I survived denim on denim.
