3 Ways to Wear Denim with a T-shirt

Are you like me and live in denim? Do you sometimes feel like your outfit is just a plain t-shirt and denim look? Today I share my current favorite denim looks with just a bit more to the look.  These looks are easy since it is just denim + a t-shirt, with a few added items to make them look more put together.

The first look is my overalls and navy striped t-shirt with a pair of converse.  It took me sometime to commit to these overalls, but if you follow me on Instagram you know I have been living in these overalls.  I highly recommend everyone to try a pair, these are on sale for $35 right now at the Gap. I thought I would dislike them for my body type but actually love them!  This look is easy to create with any t-shirt you already have and a low sneaker we know you already have in your wardrobe.  Lastly, I paired my look with my current favorite backpack as a final touch.  You could also pair a crossbody bag if you are not a back pack person. And that is look one!

Look Two:

For our second  denim and t-shirt look you might have everything you need in your closet.  These days I need my denim to not be too skinny so I have a pair of girlfriend jeans I got for under $30 recently from Banana Republic Factory.  I just had a baby and needed a more relaxed fit, so these work perfect. Next, I paired a olive t-shirt from last season, tucked it in and topped with a short sleeve oversized sweater. My shoes and necklace were also very old pieces I already owned.  Sometimes, if you dig deep in your closet you can pair ‘old’ pieces that now seem new for a refreshed look.  Kind of makes you feel like you bought a new outfit! This might be my new favorite momiform.

The Third Look:

My third look is basic with a few extra accessories to make it more than just  denim and a t-shirt.  My go to cognac back pack and sandals were just the right accessories with this navy t-shirt.  Navy is becoming a favorite color of mine not only in my wardrobe but also home decor. And before I side track to home decor….. This denim is the same girlfriend denim I wore in look two but with a navy crew neck t-shirt I found at J.Crew recently.  Now that neck scarf? (And yes, I got it for $3 in the dollar spot at Target, winning) And this is why I always check the dollar spot when I am at Target. You never know what hidden gem you will find. 🙂 (I also buy $1 cards for birthdays and such in the dollar spot..but that is for another day, another post) I think this neck scarf look is a your on board with it or your not, and I am for sure. You can tie it tighter around your neck or more loose like I have done so here.  I have this neck scarf and a classic red one that I got last year.  You will be seeing more of this neck scarf look from me for sure.  If you are not wanting it around your neck, you can try adding it to the handle of your handbag or strap of your crossbody bag. They are very light weight but I know some people do not like things up around their necks.

What if I told you this third and final denim and t-shirt look only cost me a total of $65! All items (aside from the back pack) only cost me $65 bucks total.  That is pretty good since the denim, t-shirt and sandals are staples in my wardrobe right now.  These items get a lot of use and can be mixed with so many pieces. I am all about items that can be mixed so many ways and worn with many different looks.

Happy Tuesday! Hoping your week is off to a great start. It has been a while since my last post butttt I am ready to bring you outfit posts in the coming weeks. 🙂 Today, I bring you pretty in pink items and great deals on some of my favorite items.

Rose Quartz is one of the Pantone colors of the year and today’s pastel pink outfit brings together my favorite rose colored pieces with grey distressed denim.  This pretty pastel pink coat has been in my wardrobe for about two years and tends to be just enough color for an outfit.  I only paid around $20 for this coat, I love a good deal.  These heels were also an awesome buy on Postmark.  I love when I find new-used items at over half off retail price. These Charles David black heels were a recent find for a third of their retail price. Perfect add to my wardrobe. I love this pair of light grey distressed jeans with these pieces of pink.  Hoping you all have a great week, stay tune for more post this week!

With love,

Happy Monday ladies!  Todays look is from part of our road trip two weeks ago. Yes, I am still working on a travel post of all the places we visited on our road trip and hopefully it will not take me months. 🙂  So many great places from the New England area of the U.S.  One of our stops on the road trip was Maine.  It was so beautiful and it is on my list of places to return later. While we spent two days in Maine, this was my exploring outfit and perfect for adventuring around the coast of Maine.  Tall riding boots are always a go to when I am traveling and exploring new outdoor areas.  A pair of denim, which I got on sale for under $30, and a tan sweater with elbow patches are an easy and another go to look for Fall adventures.

This location was the most calm and peaceful view.  The sun was setting, the weather was perfect and the view was beyond what words could describe. This little row boat immediately took me to the tiny boat scene on “The Notebook”.  Anyone else think the same? 🙂  If you have the chance to adventure or travel to new places, do it.
