A New Twist On A Classic Pairing
Hi Everyone! There is just something so classic about pairing denim with white. Whether it's a white shirt with denim jeans or, like I'm styling today, a white skirt with a denim top, there is a crispness to the style which I like. I've been thinking about trying this denim blouse with this white skirt for awhile now and today was the day I felt like playing in my closet and giving it a try!
The key to this styling is tying the denim shirt at the waist. This gives the look a little something extra and unexpected. I have to make sure it is pulled smooth though when I wear this. The shirt and the skirt are both thrifted items that I have owned for quite a long while and never wore together. Would you believe that I saw a denim skirt online yesterday that was priced at over $300?! There is no way I would pay that much for denim!
I thought this styling called for white accessories so I am wearing a white bead necklace that was my Mom's, two white bracelets and white earrings. Again, a crisp look against the denim.
I thought I was done and then I wondered how the denim blouse would look tucked in to the skirt. So, I decided to give that a try and added a belt with pink accents and pink sandals. These sandals are so pretty and I intend to wear them more this Spring and Summer! I like the sleeves rolled up on this blouse, also. It was getting warm outside so sleeves rolled up was called for!
In order to pull out the pink in the belt and shoes more, I switched out my jewelry to a pink toned bracelet. I like a little matchy, matchy with my outfits. I kept wearing the white earrings which still goes well with all of the colors in this pairing.
I'm pretty pleased with this styling and will remember this outfit to wear in the future. You know, it pays to look in your closet and think about combinations that will work well together and, then, put on the clothes and see what you think. Especially now, when we all may have a little extra time, playing in your closet can create a whole new series of outfits that you may never have thought about! So, what are you waiting for? Go play in your closet!! But first, I hope you will leave me a comment!
I want to thank all of my readers for continuing to visit my blog and a special thanks to those of you who faithfully leave comments. I treasure each comment and read them always!
May your day be blessed and filled with some joy! I leave you with this scripture from Jeremiah 17:7-8
“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.”
Until Next Time,
