{styling notes} a denim shirt double take...

double take: perfect denim shirt outfits

Left: Only NY hat / Madewell ex-boyfriend shirt / DV by Dolce Vita bootie / Jack Wills sweater
Paige Verdugo denim leggings, Ray-Ban aviators & Coach Legacy Mini bag
Right: Only NY hat / Madewell ex-boyfriend shirt / Peter Jensen sweater / Steve Madden Vegass flats / Bauble Bar ring


I don't know if this happened to anyone else, but as soon as I got a denim shirt, I stopped wearing anything else. Seriously, I wear one of the above two almost everyday. They are a layering piece sent from the heavens above, and this Madewell version I keep mentioning over and over again is the reason I believe so. It's got a long, relaxed fit and perfectly soft feel, one that has year-round appeal. Under warm sweaters or over summer dresses it's just... easy. 

My styling attitude right now is still preppy as ever, but with just a little dash of cool, via a pair of beat-up booties, black-on-black aviators and a wool-and-leather cap. And I've probably said it before but I'll say it again: black denim leggings are one of the most important things in my wardrobe, and the Paige Verdugo is my absolute favorite.

Hope you're all having a perfect weekend!

    1. Hey Christina - i have a small in both because they fit like a boyfriend shirt. I would typically wear a M in most madewell things, if that helps!

  4. That orange jumper is amazing. Perfect with the brown of those boots and the red of the bag.

  6. to be honest I wouldn't want all of that because I don't think I would have enough space. a. I want a bigger house first and b. the house must have a very exceptionally large walk in wardrobe

  7. L-O-V-E my denim button ups. Madewell's a bit outside my price range (and there isn't a store near me, and I'm fairly sure I'm sized out, etc etc excuses) but I have a few awesome ones from Old Navy that feel really nicely made. Which was a surprise since Old Navy is usually a miss for me!

  8. I recently found my mom's denim shirt from the 70s and stole it from her! I really like it, especially since it's "vintage," but I do find it hard to wear. It's a bit oversized, and since I wear blue denim jeans almost every day I feel like I can't wear denim on denim. So, when I wear it it's usually with my black jeans and black boots, and a white tank top underneath. Do you do denim on denim though?
