How To Wear 'Double Denim'

If you've been reading my blog or following my Instagram for some time, you'll know that I'm not usually the type to stick with one solid colour in my outfits. I really like to mix prints with plain pieces, statement jewellery with button up shirts and neutral shades with a pop of  colour in my lipstick or accessories. If anything, I definitely don't usually dress totally in the one colour. Recently, though, you will have seen in my Shades of Grey post that I've been trying out the 'all one colour' outfits and I actually received some really nice feedback.

I definitely would have never thought I'd be doing the double denim look as I cringe so much looking back at that famous photo of JT and Britney.. that's definitely not the look I was going for. (LOL)
Although it's a style that a lot of people would tend to stay away from, I think double denim is definitely wearable when you play around with different materials and shades as opposed to sticking with the exact same colour, top and bottom.. switch it up for sure! I paired my favourite pair of Topshop Ripped Joni Jeans in quite a dark denim that I purchased a year or two ago, with a very old lightweight cotton button up shirt (I'm pretty sure this was bought in France one year), rolled up the sleeves and tucked it in to my high waisted skinnies to make it look a bit more modern and 'chic'. 

For a more wearable look, I couldn't resist adding a bright pink lip shade (MAC 'Cherry' lip liner) to 'brighten up' the outfit along with a long necklace with an oval turquoise stone for an added bit of colour, yet still keeping things neutral with a pair of fringed beige booties - very similar pair on Missguided on sale for £14! I've linked these products and similar pieces below to re-create this look.

Style: A Step Into Spring

By the middle of January, the icy weather is definitely a bit played out. I used to be a person who loved winter and all that came with it, but this year I can't wait for the better weather and brighter days - any bloggers will understand the frustration of having at most a two hour  mid-day slot to take product/outfit photos due to the lack of sunlight.. there's no doubt that I'm ready to wave goodbye to winter. 

Over the past week or two, the high street stores have been bringing in new spring pieces and I'm over the moon to finally see the lighter colours come, and the chunky knits go! It's like I've been anticipating the spring all throughout November/December, so once Christmas had passed I felt that it was finally acceptable to wear my pastel pink MK bag that hadn't seen much light over the past few months. 

Of course I was absolutely freezing and had to add a white coat in the end.. which isn't the best option when you're going for a steak and red wine sauce, but at least it was an escape from the dark hues. My kimono is from last year's H&M spring line, pink cami is Topshop (available in light pastel pink), jeans are Topshop Joni's and my boots are quite a few years old, but from New Look!
