Double Denim – Gap & Urban Outfitters
9th April 2013
I often find myself missing NYC. Perhaps because the weather has been so cold in England lately, perhaps because I’m not doing as much traveling as I was doing in the time I was there… but mostly I think it’s the people, the ‘can-do,’ ‘anything-is-possible’ attitude that I miss. There are a few outfits I wore in fall in NYC that I’m back wearing again in springtime in the UK. This double-denim set is something of a legend to me. It was my ‘failsafe’ weekend outfit for walks in Central Park (I may have ditched the high heels for my Converse by the time I got off the 6 train on the Upper East Side) and lazy brunches at Mud Coffee House. I used to love tying the shirt across my stomach like Daisy Duke and how the jeans made me feel all Charlie’s Angels. My boyfriend and I argue the toss about these jeans ALL the time – they are one of my favourite styles but he does not get high-waists at all. Anyone else experience that the man doesn’t appreciate the high-waist styles? There must be some interesting psychology here. Please share below!
Although not technically a double-denim outfit, since the top is a Gap chambray shirt it’s still all kinds of the blue that I love. My heels are from Nine West, the jeans BDG / Urban Outfitters. I just need a rodeo now. Just as well I am busy planning a return trip to the US in June hey, Blog Reader?
