Double Denim

Whether you know it as a Canadian Tuxedo, Double Denim, or some other term… I think we can all agree that mixing denims is no longer wrong! And, I guess, if it is I don’t want to be right!

Fashion Fun Fact: In the 1950s, crooner Bing Crosby was nearly rejected from an upscale hotel in Canada because he had been wearing an all-denim outfit. Levis heard of this and sent him a special-made all denim tuxedo. Cheers to trend setters and fashion rule breakers of the past, present, and future! “You were born an original, don’t die a copy.”

We’ve seen and done it before, blue chambray top with black or white denim. But it’s time to sing the blues… I find the easiest way to comfortably mix the blue denims is to choose contrasting shades for your top and bottoms. I chose a light ombré faded chambray top and paired it with a dark wash denim, that way I didn’t blend together into a blue denim blob.

You can wear your chambray top buttoned or unbuttoned and layered to break up the colors even further.


These outfit pieces are ones I’ve had in my closet for awhile but Old Navy is bringing them back for you to add to your spring staples!

Also can we talk about how Old Navy is KILLING it at the accessory game right now?! I found all of the sparkly dainty everyday pieces that compliment my actual diamonds without breaking the bank!

My bar stud earrings, layered necklaces, and criss-cross statement ring were just purchased at my local Old Navy store last weekend. These styles aren’t available online, so go to your closest store to scoop yours before they are gone! The earrings come in a 3 pack and they even have a mixed metal set with gold, silver, and rose gold if the bling style isn’t to your liking.

White espadrille wedges from ShopBop and Amazon (also comes in cognac brown and rose gold) — P.S. these were in my insta story yesterday for Saturday Mail Day. I’m completely obsessed with these shoes and plan to wear them all spring and summer long. They are really comfortable and have a high-end Hermes logo look for a more affordable price.
