Dress Well: Denim on Denim Redux

The first time I wore denim on denim on this blog, I talked about how layering a sweater into the outfit made me feel more like a trendy girl, less like a cowboy. This time around, I realized printed denim was another great way to make denim on denim happen (without needing to bust out the cowboy boots, too). And let's talk about this particular piece of printed denim - I love it. I was drawn to this shirt like a moth into a porch light when I was in Madewell this past Saturday. If you had described this shirt to me in concept, there's no way I would have expected to like it (sleeveless button-ups are generally not my thing). However, as I've come to expect, Madewell produces a superior product. My wallet does not appreciate it.

One other note about this outfit - I've had this headband since I was in the 11th grade. I've probably worn it three times, total. I just don't have the kind of head or kind of hair that supports a headband, you know? But when I put on this outfit, it's like something in me was calling out for my headband. So I tried it out. And I liked it. I don't know, maybe the headband thing is so 2007, but between the sleeveless button up and the headband, I kind of liked throwing back to my elementary school days. Every kid had those two things in the 90s, you know?








Have a great day.
