August Pinspired: Denim, Denim, Denim!!

Today is my favorite blogging day of the month - the Pinspired link-up!  Yay!!  As always, thanks to Shay, Shaeffer and Mel for hosting and being awesome :-)

Little bit of up-front disclosure... with all the moving and stuff, I modeled and Ethan photographed these outfits in one day.  :-)

Toward the end of June, I bought a denim button-down shirt that I figured could double as a jacket and a shirt.  There are some adorable denim jackets floating around the internet right now, but I wanted the flexibility that a button-down offered.  Yesterday, I shared a bunch of my inspiration outfits from Pinterest, almost all of which I can approximate from my own wardrobe.  I wore a few different outfits during July, even though I never took the time to take pics, and this is my new favorite article of clothing!  It's soft and comfy, and so versatile!

Without further ado...

I love this outfit for the dressing-down of the skirt.  I love wearing skirts and dresses, but always feel like I'm too dressed up for day-to-day when I do, but throwing my denim jacket on over one feels a little more casual and less fussy ;-)

Here's my version, that took with some bizarre color cast that I couldn't 'shop out of it for anything!  But, the skirt IS black and white, I promise!!

Yay pink sparkles!! I don't have this cami, but ohhhhmygosh, do I ever want one like it!!  I do have a fun pink tank top that I paired with my favorite white shorts... the weirdest thing about this tank, though... the color NEVER looks pink in pictures.  I've used different cameras, inside, outside, flash, no flash, lots of photoshopping... I don't know what's up with it, but imagine a slightly dusty rose.

  • Denim Jacket
  • White Shorts - Lee's, at Kohls a few years ago.
  • Pink Tank - Kohls
  • White Flats - Had 'em since high school!
  • Jewelry - Always, Katie.  (My necklace is light blue on one side and light pink on the other, with a silver awareness ribbon charm in the middle, for infertility awareness.  I can do something similar in any awareness color you want, too!)
And lastly, for now,

This picture has become sort of creepy to me now, because facebook KNOWS I looked at it, so it's taunting me from my sidebar now.  Creepy.  But still cute, and totally comfy.

  • Denim Jacket 
  • White Shorts (same as above)
  • Black Shirt - I have no idea!  But it came with the (detachable) layered necklace. :-)
  • Brown Belt - Kohls a few years ago.  Love it dearly.
  • Black sandals - Sonoma, from Kohls last year.  They had them in pink and nude, and maybe white, too.  Not as comfy as my hand-me-down Easy Spirits (which are usually my go-to black sandal), but slightly more fashionable, haha!
I had every intention of taking more outfit pictures today (I've gathered pieces from my wardrobe for - I think - 14 of the 24 outfits I shared yesterday)... but I had a wonderful and much-needed girls' crafty afternoon and evening with my best friend, baked a cheesecake for my mother-in-law's birthday, and possibly broke my thumb.  The one-handed typing is getting annoying, so I will maybe (or maybe not) attempt to show more outfits later.  For now... it's 1:30 in the morning, and I'm headed for aspirin, icepack and beddy-bye!
