Double denim has been quite the fad for quite some time now and even when trying to be a gal that doesn't follow trends that are out quicker than they're in, somehow by osmosis these things get lodged in my brain. I generally have an idea and ruminate over it for a while when it comes to style and fashion. My decision to pink up my hair was a seedling slowly growing in the fertile soil of my brian over many months until finally I was ready to do it. I think it's because I need to make sure I'm going to get the most out of whatever it is I'm deciding on and am mentally matching outfits, seeing how many times I would be able to wear the item etc. So the idea of getting a denim shirt was practically a tree in my brain by the time I actually got one. (It's important to note here that quality in-price-range denim shirts are harder to find than one might think). The denim shirt that fitted my bill was found at Scotch and Soda and after acquiring it I have been waiting for the opportunity to try some double denim.

Double denim, in my opinion, works best when set off with a splash of colour. Here I've used my pink hair (R.I.P) and a flower crown. The combination of slippers and pearl earrings is me going for a laid-back yet still sophisticated chic look (and honestly: nothing better than a pearl earring with denim).
