Denim + Stripes



As popular as the denim-on-denim trend (aka "Canadian tuxedo") has become, I still had yet to give the look a try.  But when I scored this vertical striped blazer on sale last week, I instantly knew it would add just the right amount of structure & polish to my favorite chambray shirt and distressed jeans.  Finished off with the most comfortable flats I own & a crossbody bag, this is comfortable & easy weekend style.





What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 chambray shirt (similar here or here), Gap blazer (similar - extra 20% off w/ code EVERYONE)
Forever 21 jeans, Old Navy oxfords (similar), Forever 21 bag (similar here or here), Bracelets: Vintage, 
c/o Stella & Dot, Forever 21 (similar), ASOS ring (similar), Forever 21 earrings
Simply Vera Vera Wang aviators (similar), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Sweetheart

This is one of my favorite looks to date. LOVE the blazer and the denim on denim combo. Those oxfords are fabulous ~ one of my most comfortable pairs of loafers is from Old Navy too. Also {and I think this all the time} your skin is flawless!

IT's not technically a Canadian tuxedo though. Thats all denim, one color, head to toe! I like this, but isn't it a bit hot?

Ashleigh,

Haha - I know...I had to make it my own! :) It was really hot here in NY all last week, but it finally cooled down this weekend a little bit; just enough for me to wear these light layers! :)

Thinking the same Jen said re: those oxfords because I've still only worn mine twice. :( Need to auction them off on your site, or use your cute pics on a Poshmark listing! haha.

Love this look, and how the blazer breaks up the denim. So cute for a summer to fall transition.

I love the pop of neon color under the collar! It's a nice touch of color since the denim and stripes act as a neutral and are pretty simple!

Such a great pair of oxfords; I think the fact that they sans laces makes them much more versatile!
