Jeans Day

It was Jeans Day today, so out came the denim.  My first thought was to wear my staple Refashioned Jean Vest which I generally haul out whenever it is Jeans Day.  Instead I wore a different vest and a long midi-skirt.  It looked like this:

The skirt is really comfortable, it has pockets, a bit of stretch and I like the dark wash.  The green sweater was originally to go with a green skirt, but I wanted to wear knee-socks instead of tights so switched the skirt out at the last minute for something longer.

The vest has a cute lining on the underside of the collar:

This look is slightly outside of my comfort zone because of all the different solid colours: dark blue, green, denim blue, the beigey scarf and brown boots. I am usually a more matchy-matchy person, but I think it looks okay.

  1. It does look fine--though I've never tried the denim on denim look. I usually try to stick to one piece of denim at a time. Love the contrast on the collar of the vest.

  2. Haha - denim on denim is a very Canadian look.

  3. All those blues look really great up near your face. Are those blue glasses, too?

    1. Hi Louise: Yes blue glasses too. I'm allowed to get a new pair every couple of years with our health insurance so I've got blue, red and a pinky-brown pair.

  4. I like the look (being a fellow Canuck, denim-on-demim is my middle name!) - the long skirt and short vest elongates your lower half. I like all the blue, too. :)
