Just in case you thought I was bluffing last week when I said I lurve doubled up denim! ;-)

I’m a big fan of LOFT lately; their curvy fit jeans fit me so well, and you can’t beat their basics. I signed up for emails so I get notifications of sales and promotions, and between the storewide fall sales happening lately and the occasional LOFT cash they dole out for every $50 you spend, I just keep going back (and back) for more.

All of their pieces mix so well together; it’s kind of like Garanimals for grown-ups, and I’m all about easy dressing these days.

double the denim

I love denim on denim: it’s simple and effortless, a no-brainer when you feel like you have “nothing to wear,” and most important, it’s all kinds of comfortable. I think the trick to pulling it off in a polished way is picking quality pieces, and mixing shades and textures on the top and bottom.

It’s easy to get denim shirt fever and end up with a dozen variations in your closet. But when it comes down to it, two is plenty: a boyfriend-fit long sleeve button down that can do double duty as a shirt and jacket, and a short sleeve chambray tee.
