Double Duty

I love denim (who doesn’t?).  But it took me a while to see the necessity of double denim (a.k.a. a denim shirt paired with jeans).  Now that I’ve seen the light, however, it’s hard not to wear it all. the. time.

After all, jeans are a no-brainer.  Perfect with just about everything.  And a denim shirt is a casual button down that can be dressed up or down.  Add a cape and a fabulous pair of shoes, and you could go just about anywhere feeling both comfortable and casually glamourous.  I’ve been working to extricate myself from this combination ever since I discovered how easy and fab it feels.
