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.
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.

I lived in these Blank Denim Relaxed Galaxy Jeans this summer. They were so easy to throw on with tees, tanks and camis, and worked with both flats and the stacked-heel sandals I grew to love over the last several months (put me in a stiletto these days and I’m like Bambi learning to walk). There were many mornings that I pulled them off the top of the hamper for round two/three/four, and I am not ashamed.
I have no plans of slowing down their heavy rotation as we [oh-so-slowly in Florida] transition into fall; they’ll play just as nicely with sweaters, long sleeve tees, loafers, and booties.
