{denim on denim}

Denim on Denim... basically a Canadian tuxedo ;)

J.Crew Chambray Shirt (use code TGIFALL to get 25-30% off until 10/26) // Old Navy Denim // Nordstrom Necklace // Nordstrom Cashmere wrap // JPK Paris Purse via TJ Maxx, old (found some on eBay) // Tory Burch Flats // Gigglosophy Love Bracelet // David Yurman Cable Bracelet // Tiffany & Co Ring // Lipstick is Clinique Chubby Stick in "Mightiest Maraschino" mixed with Revlon ColorBurst in "Vivacious"

My key to pulling off this look, so I don't look like I'm wearing a giant denim jumpsuit, is to mix light and dark denim. I find a solid dark wash jean really brings out the softness of a denim shirt aka "chambray". I have multiple chambray shirts but this J.Crew one is tried and true (not pictured: missing bottom button, eek!)... It's super soft but is also thick to keep you warm!

Speaking of warm: cashmere. My darling boyfriend gave me this wrap scarf last year for our anniversary and I swear I wore it every day in the winter. It is fabulous quality and is really wide. I was able to wear it as a shawl for fancy holiday parties! The fringe detail on the bottom just adds to the luxe factor. I've said it before... but this is an investment. However, it's one I highly recommend! I feel bad for all my other scarves that get pushed aside when I see the temperatures plummet ;)
(psst boys: this is a great gift idea! My dad took note and bought my mom one for Christmas!)

Love Always,
