Denim desires

I knew that title would lure you in!  I’m feeling a bit refreshed and energized after a really fun, and pretty relaxing vacation with the family.  Unbelievable, but my girls actually got along quite well this time around.  Luck, age, or maybe mom chilling a bit more…who knows, but I will take it.  Hmmm…. maybe it was the pina coladas or Miami breeze cocktails I had? 😉  Or maybe all of our hormones were in sync this month?!

I can’t wait to share some fun travel posts with you very soon!  I had a fun mother/sisters getaway to Scottsdale in late March followed by spring break a week later with the family in Miami and the Dominican Republic.

In the meantime, I’ve seen so many fun denim looks over the last several weeks that I couldn’t wait to put together a post of some of my favorite pieces.


Loving anything off the shoulder this season and this denim dress is perfectly practical, but a bit flirty.


Something simple, easy and breezy for those warm summer days and nights.


A cute and comfortable piece from Anthropologie.


How adorable are these straps?  Reminds me of a beach bag!  This fun dress is from Anthropologie. 


This well priced Anthropologie dress is so pulled together it could go to the office to the beach with a change of shoes and accessories.


This denim dress looks so soft and comfortable and the perfect dress for a scorching hot day.  Really like the addition of the cute scarf.


Love love love this one!  Pockets and a frayed hemline….. and that hat. In love!  The only thing that is missing is a fabulous necklace!


Maybe you want a white denim dress?  Another cute find from Anthro. 


Tops, Tunics & Skirts 

You know I love a bit of fringe and I love a tunic and this combo is a match made in heaven in my mind.  A fun find from Anthropologie. 


Such a unique shirt from Anthro.  Hard to tell, but it is denim.


A soft denim option with a fun fringe from Nordstrom



Another soft denim option from Nordstrom that can be worn off the shoulder.


A nice layering piece or worn alone from J Crew Factory.


A cute lace up option from Madewell. 


Another lace up option, sans the pockets, from Anthropologie.


Denim skirt from H & M.  Functional and cute.


Another cute and practical skirt from H & M


Really liking this slightly distressed option from Nordstrom.  I think it is important to find the right length when buying a denim skirt.  Too short and it looks like you are trying to be too young or too long can look too dowdy.  It is a fine balance, ladies.  I think just slightly above the knee is perfect for 30’s and beyond.  My two cents on skirts.  I think you know what I mean, right?


Hats and Bags

What an adorable fedora with denim trim from Nordstrom

Have you checked out Reece Witherspoon’s stylish new line, Draper James?  Beautiful online shop carrying a variety of different items.  How adorable is this denim tote bag??

I hope you received a bit of denim inspiration.  It doesn’t always have to be in the form of a pair of jeans, right?  Fun to mix it up a bit, and with so many fun denim pieces out there, why not try something different this spring.

I’ll be back next week with a post about a recent spring trip.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and I always enjoy your comments!  xo
