Light Denim Lovin'

Closet confession time: despite being a former obsessive premium denim collector, I have never owned a denim jacket in my life. Not even in the 90s when denim jackets were de rigeur. This light denim shirt is, of course, not a jacket, but I'm going to go out on a limb and call it "jacket-like." I have a feeling I'll be living in it this Spring/Summer... it seriously goes with everything!

Denim Shirt: TNA (Aritzia) (similar) / Maxi Dress: gift (similar) / Belt: H&M / Wedges: Nine West

  2. I love how you stuck the shirt over a maxi dress! I have a black maxi that hasn't been worn in a few seasons, I'm gonna try this! ;-)

  5. Super cute! I like that its a lighter color. I'm not too fond of denim shirts and jackets, but this lighter one is so cute. You look great! :)

    1. Yeah, I prefer the lighter denim colour too... it makes it look less "jean-y", if that makes sense!

  6. That looks really great! I have a black maxi skirt that I've been looking for styling tips for and the light denim with a belt is perfect.

  8. I'm the same way, I've never owned a denim jacket either! I see how versatile they are though, and I'll keep my eyes peeled for one. You look great! Love this outfit.

  11. I'm looking for a chambray top. I saw this one from Aritzia... but I couldn't fork over the $90 for it. I'm going to Asia soon, I'm hoping I'll find something there ;) You're looking gorgeous as always! I'm surprised I still haven't hopped into you anywhere!

  13. A good denim piece can be really hard to find - but the good news is, once you have a good one, it lasts forever! No joke; there is a denim jacket in my family that belonged to my cousin, then me, then my mom and is now worn regularly by my brother :) I recently foundmy perfect denim shirt and it looks like you found yours! I love how it looks with your maxi - I hadn't thought of that combination, but now I have to try it!

  14. Love that we were both wearing denim shirts in our outfit posts today! I like the lighter hue of yours and how you paired it with a maxi skirt. Definitely something for me to try...just gotta buy a maxi skirt first ;)

  15. Alison you're so cute! Love the denim shirt. Like you, I was an obsessive premium denim collector too.. and never had a jean jacket either! And now my problem is that theres a huge pile sitting at the bottom of my closet that I need to get rid of :( If only I could turn them into shirts.. haha
