Denim on Denim with a side of Brunch

To celebrate a dear friend's birthday, he asked for one thing: to wear all things denim.

Now, that may make you think of Justin and Britney circa 2001 AMAs, but trust me, Miles knows what he's talking about. He is the most fashionable man I know, so obviously I had to show out for him.

So working through some options, I wanted to make sure I still had some personality, and that everything still went together. So I went on a shopping adventure to Torrid (really because I needed new booties to fully embrace fall). 

Black denim is something that I haven't had in my closet in awhile, so I figured it would be a good investment to find a good pair. So I went to Torrid and found this nice pair of black jeggings. I won't go on a jegging rant, but just know, yes they are still pants because I have to button and zip so get out of my face all you nay sayers. 

Then I found this PERFECT shirt. I think I'm a fan of graphic t's with some real truth put out there, especially when layers with a sweater or a chambray shit. The word on the shirt are just how I live my life on a regular basis. Sometimes you just can't fix your face. 

When choosing jewelry for this outfit, I wanted to make sure it was subtle (which seems like the opposite of a statement, but work with me here) yet pronounced. With the shirt having words that I wanted to be read, a long necklace was out of the picture. Drawing too much attention ins't always a good thing, so I went with a simple bar necklace and this matching earring and ring set. 

It's the subtleness that can really make a full outfit, especially when words are the focus of the outfit. Adding many small accessories can make a statement in itself.
