summer denim for days | the sunday brief

double denim

today’s post is all about summer denim. it’s no secret i’m a blue jean mama from way back when. there’s something special about the All-American look of denim that rev’s my style engine. but let’s not forget about chambray which also makes my heart go pitter-patter. it’s a lighter weight counterpart to denim. but what happens when those summertime temps heat up, and your favorite pair of skinny jeans are too hot to wear? well, there’s good news! try a jumpsuit on for size this summer. add a cute bandana or thong sandals to keep the look summertime chic. a denim dress is always a good choice. try one with sleevessleeveless or short sleeves, there are so many options to choose from. let’s take a peek at how i rotate denim outfits all summer long.

    The dress outfit coupling denim with carmel colored accessories is perfection. The shoes are so yummy!

    Love the denim outfits..especially that first one! The caramel cardigan is just perfect! Is there a link to it? I’ve seen many cardigans this season ( and all seasons, really) but I love the design in the knit. Usually they’re either flat, or bulky. This looks lightweight, but interesting. Love the color on you, too.
    Glad to see you “back on the bike”. Sending hugs…..
