Many wonders of Blue Denim

After many failed trials of sewing a pair of pants, I directed my energy to old denim’s I found around the house.  I tore some up like the ragged pants, some I made into pants and some, well, they just lie helplessly in my trash basket. Since my adventure with Jeans/Denim, I decided to share some wonderful outfits I found while searching for inspiration.

Jackets

Rihanna  spotted in Balmain Military Style Denim Jacket. Am I getting an MJ vibe somewhere on this jacket?

Sweaters

Believe it or not, there are more Denim sweaters out there than you can imagine. This beautiful Tibi Blocked Denim Slouchy cropped pullover sweater can be also be paired with Denim. Be careful not to crush the beauty of this sweater though.

Tops

I would pair this with a mid calf high waited pencil skirt, a chunky necklace and a pointed toe pump.

Dresses

There are so many blue denim dresses out there. Seeing that my style is simple, I found these pretty interesting dresses.

Speaking of the new year, I decided not to make any resolutions this year. I find that anytime I pull out a list of resolutions, I usually end up messing things up. So this year, I decided not to, and so far, I have been doing pretty good keeping to no resolutions. Who am I kidding! In my head lies resolutions of a life time and with passing everyday, at least for the few days in this year, I’m doing better and better.

But that doesn’t mean I would stop buying shoes 🙂  I’m still working on that one.

By the end of last year, I decided that this year would be different and better…Wait till it’s warm and you ‘ll see.

Anyways,

Here is a few pictures. If you had any tips on how to get better at this, please feel free to share.

So I saw this skirt On SkinnyHipster’s Blog and I tried to duplicate it.
