I actually wore this outfit awhile ago and featured it over on Glamour’s Young + Posh Network, but decided I liked it too much not to share over here. As surprising as it may sound or seem, I’m actually not a big fan of blue jeans. They’ve always felt a little too farmer Joe/Daisy Duke for me. Not that I have a thing against Joe and Daisy (hey guys!), I just mean they haven’t felt right for my own personal style. But! I have no qualms with denim shirts, jackets, and shoes(!), particularly when worn together.

I’d like to consider this look a modern day take on the “Canadian Tuxedo“, which I just learned is also known as the “Denim Sandwich”. Who knew!? Not I! Anyhoo, I bought these Madison Harding shoes on Gilt awhile back and love the fact that it kind of looks like I’m wearing denim sockies. Come to think of it, do they make those? If so, I’m getting a pair.

Anyways, I’d love to try out this look with a pair of denim cut-offs, but have a feeling that will be denim overkill. Either way, I plan on experimenting with more ways of combining denim without having to wear full on blue jeans. Ideas welcome…
