Uniform No. 1: Denim on Denim

This post is brought to you by Nordstrom

I don’t go shopping for clothes a lot. Usually right before a trip or an event I realize I’m sick of my clothes and then go shopping to add a few pieces to my wardrobe. I was feeling like that last week so I started keeping track of looks I want to recreate. I’ll share two today and two on Thursday. I call them “uniforms” because I wear the same look to death.

    LOVE uniforms. the brought them in my senior year of high school and i must have been the only person that didn’t complain. definitely look to create them in my closet now – great style and little thinking in the morning. love the mixed print one that you did – i’ll have to try a bit more of that.

    school uniforms, yes. prison uniforms, no.
    denim on denim is so inmate.

    We call this a Tennessee Tuxedo! I am from TN, so it’s an ok joke:)

    Ha ha! I’m the same way with my clothes – I decide in a bit of a panic at the last minute that all is not well. I’ve also started keeping running tally of what I’d like (thank you Pinterest!), so hopefully I’m less deer-caught-in-headlights at the shops and more savvy-shopping-ninja.

    I’ve never heard of Tennessee Tuxedo, I thought denim on denim was usually referred to as a Canadian Tuxedo, referencing all the denim and sometimes plaid that lumberjacks supposidly wear.

    This is gorgeous! Never been a fan of denim on denim but seeing this I could change my mind.
    xx p.s. red lippy always helps 😉

    This looks great! When done right, the so-called Canadian Tuxedo looks great! This is a prime example!
