Lately there isn’t a day passing by that I’m not wearing denim, and for the first time in years I’m not feeling sorry for it. When I had my first baby, I was so scared of becoming one of those moms who dropped all sense of style after pushing one of those mini’s out, and loosing any interest in the way I would look. My blog has always been a great motivation for not turning into that one thing I was so scared of becoming, but also many trends from past seasons have made it so much easier to dress “interesting”, yet casual, and most importantly, “wearable” when running around as a mom. One of these – currently trending – trends is denim. Always, everywhere, no limitations. However, that pile of rather boring pairs of skinny jeans – which I have a hard time styling nowadays anyway – made way for denim culottes, shirts, jackets, and little dresses. Moreover, I’m totally pro double denim, but you knew that already too.
And with my weakness for denim and Chloe’s last few collections I obviously couldn’t resist burning a hole in my wallet for this pair of sandals. It wasn’t a hard decision to pick a color, but it took me some time to decide whether to go for the tall or short ones. But in the end I thought the short ones would be more wearable for me, and more timeless. So after burning that hole in my wallet I had no other option than to style them with stuff that I already had. I had to be creative with pieces from my current wardrobe, which is in the case of double denim not too hard. No skinnies though, only high-waisted culottes or flares – culottes in this case – preferably with a soft denim shirt, no coat! Finally I can go out without one, because it’s SPRING!
