sunday style | american classic style | denim

stripes on repeat

if you have been following the blog for any length of time you know how much i love denim. one reason is that blue jeans are 100% american. last week i began a discussion about american classic style. what is it and how to wear it. but another reason i love (and you love denim) is the versatility it offers. a humble pair of blue jeans can be dressed up or down. a third reason is the variety of denim available these days. there are skinny jeans, cropped jeans, jean skirts, jean dresses, jean shirts, distressed jeans, patchwork jeans. the options are endless. which is why every few months or so i round up my favorite ways to wear denim. if you are a blue jean mama like me you’re gonna love today’s post.

frayed hem jeans are on trend this season. pair them with a shirt dress for a fresh summer look.
