Denim Squared {Short Shorts Edition}

 Shirt: Equipment, Shorts: Old Navy, Necklace worn as belt: Ralph Lauren, Shoes: Christian Louboutin, Clutch: Curly in the City, Scarf: Raj, Bracelets: Ettika, From Bali, Vintage, Sunnies: H&M

Like I've said before denim on denim is something I never envisioned myself wearing but definitely something that I've grown to love. Imagine that?!
The contrast between light and dark denim is really the way to go with this look, all the same tone and you just may end up looking like farmer John (unless of course that's the look you were headed for!). So, in the spirit of summer I threw my jeans to the side and headed straight for the short shorts! Such a perfect look to carry me from day to night...a definite keeper for the summer repertoire. 

Yay for the weekend! Hope you all have a fab one..
xo,
Nicole

Looks awesome...how did you get the head wrap to look like that? Is it tied or is it a headband? I need to learn how to make a turbanesque piece!

You did denim on denim well! 2 different shades, well played. Such a cute and casual outfit :)

One of my favorites! Those shoes are AMAZING! Love T's clutch too!

Carly said...

ok..first things first...love those CL's.
Second..loving the denim on denim here...I think because the washes are SO different it really works...for some reason this trend hasn't worked for me in the past...maybe I should retry and take a cue from you.
Happy weekend girlie

Shasie said...

I agree, I never thought I would do denim and denim either. I like the way you styled it though with different shades of denim. The fit of those shorts are really cute, and the heart belt adorable. Fab shoes
