Happy Friday! I’m so excited for May to arrive, aren’t you? All this warm spring weather means I can finally break out some of my lighter pieces (you know, instead of boots and scarves–which totally have their place in my heart, but after several long months of winter…)
I snagged a massive deal on this denim shirt when I found it on a 90% off clearance rack for six bucks. At one time I didn’t understand the appeal of a denim shirt, but it’s surprisingly versatile. I like the way it makes these white trousers more casual for a date night, especially when paired with a summery bag.
Since these pants are so long and so wide-legged, I’m wearing wedge sandals to give me some height. Flats just wouldn’t be proportionate to the silhouette and heels would run the risk of snagging the hems.
The finishing touch is this Perry Street necklace, borrowed from Rocksbox, with which I am absolutely in love. The bright colors and luxe details help upgrade a basic outfit to something more special. (Want to try Rocksbox for yourself? Use my promo code “marthabff9” at sign-up to try a month free!)

Aww, it’s nice to see pictures of you, you look so pretty!
A denim shirt has been on my list of fashion considerations for a while, maybe one day I’ll find the right one!
Thank you :)
I hope you find one you love!

YOU ARE VERY FABULOUS AND YOU LOOK WONDERFUL. I actually have a denim shirt and always thought, “Yeah I’m gonna wear this.” And then realise the only pants I ever wear are, um, also denim. And I haven’t quite felt like looking like a completely denim zombie, sooooo, you have inspired me. ^_^
Aw, thank you! I’ve never been brave enough to try the denim-on-denim look, even though I see it on Pinterest and in magazines all the time. :P
Oh wow, you look so beautiful! Very springy. :) The necklace is perfect!I found a denim shirt on sale too a while ago but have not worn it yet because I did not know how to style it. But I love the idea of pairing it with white pants. I need to consider that! Thanks for sharing! I always love seeing pictures of you!
Thanks, you’re too sweet :) I might have to do a post on different ways to style a denim shirt! I’m loving all the different outfit combos I’ve found in my closet :)
That’s a perfect idea. I would love to read that post. :)
i totally agree with the denim shirt! such a much-needed piece!
I realize this post is older, but I had to say that you look so cute! I love those trousers! I too am very excited to put away my boots and scarves for a while.
Thank you! :)
