Dreamy Denim

One day as I was gazing longingly into my closet, I suddenly realized how I had acquired quite the collection of light denim articles. I really enjoy all three of these pieces because they can can create so many different looks: girly, edgy, classy, casual.. You name it! Inspired by my sudden realization, I decided to create 3 different looks with each of these pieces.

Look number 1:
[Denim shirt: Target / Shorts: Urban Outfitters / Shoes: Urban Outfitters]
I was honestly a little proud of this compilation. Who would have thought nice black shorts could go so well with a denim button up? Nonetheless, this outfit gives off a casual yet classy vibe (and maybe something you could find in an Urban Outfitters catalog, who doesn't want that?!)

Look number 2:
[Jacket: Cotton On (Australia) / Dress: Forever 21 / Boots: Target]
Somehow this outfit turned out much more country than I had anticipated, but hey, I'm not complaining! Each article is completely different; the jacket is edgy, the dress has a vintage feel, and the boots are somewhat country, yet somehow all come together quite nicely.

Look number 3:
[Skirt: Cotton On (Australia) / Jacket: Forever 21 / Tights: Target / Necklace: Target]
With a girly piece like a skirt, I always like to balance it out with something a bit more edgy, so I paired it with this leather (fake) motorcycle jacket. I also am entirely obsessed with tights this winter and I like the vintage feel these give off. I think the necklace makes a statement without being too overpowering, completing the look.

I hope you're inspired to go forth and make unlikely yet bold fashion statements!

    thanks for your comment on my blog btw, I agree, Emma Watson indeed is a gorgeous person with a great fashion sense! ;) What do you think about her short hair? Since in the pictures on my blog she still had long hair...

  5. I really love each look, I couldn't possibly choose a favourite! The only denim I have in my wardrobe is jeans, but I think after seeing your outfits I might have to consider adding more. Also thank you for the sweet comment on my blog :)
