Wearing: Double Denim


Excuse me while I make faces with my young Elke Bear and also excuse that inappropriately positioned gap in my buttons and my shorts that are a little bit too short for a 30 year old mother of three, how awkward. But I figure when the days are hot I have two options - be too warm or wear short shorts. Clearly I'm going for the latter.

Lately I've been teaming chambray and denim with vibrant accessories. Layers of forgotten coins by Bohemian Traders along with a brightly coloured Maria Bangle Stack and an Antique Embellished Clutch.

  23. I wish it was hot enough here to require the wearing of shorts and super cute denim on denim. Alas, it's below zero here in chilly MN. But I do love that outfit!

  24. haha i don't think it's too short at all- when it's hot out who cares! ;) and i have a feeling ill be doing a lot of that double denim this year, i really like how it looks! it's just so minimal and fresh- and those neon accents were a really nice touch.
