These jeans spoke to me on an emotional level, and despite their seeming lack of versatility, I had to have them. But, to my pleasant surprise, I have actually been able to style them a variety of ways! This has to be one of my favorites.
As you know, I’ve been a fan of denim on denim for a while now. I even published a post on how to make it your own! I love this short sleeved chambray shirt because it gives me the ability to do my beloved Canadian tuxedo look in the heat of the summer without melting into a big puddle of blue.
I also have to admit, all the blue denim I’ve been wearing these days really goes well with the environment here in Vancouver. Everything is either blue or green here – a refreshing look from my usual greys and browns in Montreal or my golds in California!
I saw Thelma and Louise for the first time last week. It may or may not have influenced this outfit/shoot theme. You be the judge. I loved the movie, despite the abrupt and slightly disturbing ending… Though everyone I talked to was shocked at my reaction considering how famous the scene is. I’m trying really hard to not put out any spoilers right now, but needless to say, go see it if you haven’t!
As for the look itself, it’s really just a compilation of my favorite things. I of course returned to my favorite Canadian tuxedo, being majorly inspired by the style in the film. Then, I threw in my favorite booties, (which you’ve seen more than enough of by now), and then for a polishing touch, a button down blouse and a super cool skinny scarf fashioned as a neck tie.
This outfit is yet another nod to a former decade. Though inspired by an early 90’s film, the look drips with 70’s accents, from the colors, to the blouse, to the skinny scarf. The decade continues to provide versatile influences – the 70’s are everywhere, even if it’s not obvious.
