Mixing Modern, Vintage & Denim

What can you find in your grandma’s closet as well as your 3 year old nephew’s? It’s something you can find in the bureau of a construction worker but also in the walk-in dressing parlor of the world’s biggest super models. People from every continent on Earth, and even some dogs, own it. It’s something so versatile and comfortable that almost everybody has at least one piece of it.

Obviously, it’s denim, which you probably already knew from the title of this blog post.

But yeah – denim is everything.  And something about the beginning of fall makes me crave it even more than usual. It’s probably the crisp air and the urge to layer (which hasn’t actually struck yet in N.C., but I’m expecting it any minute…). This anticipation has compelled me to create a collection of fashion sets inspired by denim, some influenced by celebrities and some just motivated by my own fancies. Each set includes at least one piece from my Etsy shop that is available now! Have a look below –

Look 1: Inspired by Alessandra AmbrosioAlessandra ambrosia Fashion Inspiration

Basically, there is never any time that is wrong for a black and white striped shirt with a denim button down thrown over top. Well, never any wrong causal time at least.

Look 2: Inspired by Olivia Palermo.

It’s been a hard pill to swallow for some, but double denim is back. And if you can’t get behind it 100%, throw on an army green jacket to break it up!

Look 3: Inspired by Whitney Port.

I didn’t even realize I was inspired by not one, but two, gals from the 00’s hit show, The City. And whatever happened to Roxy Olin? (Okay, sidenote – I just Instagramed her and she apparently works on This Is Us. Good for her! ANOTHER sidenote – Roxy if you’re reading this – I named my mannequin after you in 2009.) Anyways, another denim on denim look here – this time a little more dressed up.

Look like a model on the go by simply adding a denim vest to your sweats. V chic.

Now this cami sold, but I love the mix of a delicate top with some 90’s mom jeans. Lucy Hale, thank you for this look!

I love how the oversized shirts are everywhere right now. This mens’ work shirt mixed with Dr. Martens looks edgy and effortless.
