Canadian Tuxedo: Featuring Destroyed Denim

August 26, 2015

Destroyed Denim

It’s Wednesday! We’ve made it half way to Friday, which is the day we can wear jeans! Since Fridays are casual and all.

I have a feeling you guys were starting to think I never wear pants. Well, I do, and this pair of destroyed denim from Junky Trunk is one of my favorites.

This “Canadian Tuxedo” is a pretty standard look for me. I have way too many chambray shirts. I have a sleeveless one, a tunic, a shirt dress, a sun dress (psst..this sun dress is on sale!)…My husband says I can’t buy any more. I think he’s overreacting.

I think the button down, casual, destroyed denim, and converse make a great combo.

I bought this necklace at a little local boutique a long time ago. I really like pairing a different shade of blue  (turquoise) with a pop of red in there.

I would wear this outfit to brunch (my favorite meal, who’s with me?) at Postino, or like I did on this day, in Dallas to Rise No. 1 and have a blueberry soufflé. However, let’s not put our distressed denim in a box…

Fancy those pants up a little! Wear them with some leather! Take ’em out to dinner and get them a glass of Pinot Noir! Tell them they look nice and open the door for them. Sorry. Got a little carried away…that got weird.

That’s right. I went there. I put on my destroyed denim, and SURPRISE: some heels and my favorite leather shirt. Night time look. Boom. I can totally picture this outfit on you, cocktail in hand, strutting to your table at Olive and Ivy?

Maybe you don’t want to wear a full leather shirt-especially in Arizona? That’s ok! Look at this one. Only the sleeves are leather, so it’s more breathable.  This one would be another great option if you’re worried about ventilation.

What do you think? Love it, or no? Comment and tell me!

    I like this both ways. You have a way with clothes and you wear them well. You are smashing in these.
