Americana Denim X2.

I am a couple of days behind but I am still going strong with the Create 28 Lovely Summer Looks challenge this month, hosted by Carrie, Casey and my Michigander Friend Whitney. A couple of days ago the daily prompt was a Denim Look and that is what I am doing today with my All Americana Denim Skirt and Cut-off Shorts. I think every woman should own a few pairs of blue well-fitted jeans (in different washes) as well as a blue denim skirt, a blue chambray shirt, a blue denim jacket, a blue denim vest and blue denim shorts. Bonus if you own white skinny jeans, white denim shorts, a blue chambray shirtdress and a white denim jacket. These last items are definitely good for Summer too. I own the White Skinnies but need to add the other pieces, eventually. What about you?
Lots of Red, White and Blue today (like I promised I would show more off this week). These outfits were worn to honor America's Birthday. The first one the previous weekend before the 4th and the second one on Sunday July 5th. I did add some Blush with Accessories (via the Sandals on the first outfit and the Fedora on the second). Besides Denim Bottoms, what else says Summer Style to me are Wedge Sandals and Boat Shoes, so I am linking up with Laura today for Trend Spin Weekly which is Summer Style.

  1. I agree with your picks for creating a cohesive denim closet! Unfortunately I'm missing denim shorts and a skirt...not to mention white anything! Hmmm, shopping goals for July?? Anyways, you look summer chic in your first ensemble and fun and flirty in your second. Well done!

  2. You look great, Ada. I have been wanting a denim skirt for awhile, just haven't found the right one for me yet. Yours is perfect! I have a pair of cut off shorts and I LOVE them... :)

  5. You are rocking your denims! I bought a few denim skirts and vintage Levi's jeans that I've cut into shorts and I am looking forward to wearing them during my vacation soon!

  6. I really like your red top! I have one very similar, but I haven't worn it with blue denim yet, need to give that a go :)

    I have been thinking about getting a denim skirt - maybe a denim maxi skirt, a blogger I like makes them. Just not sure if it would be too warm for our temperatures here! I used to have a lot of denim mini skirts, but donated them all when I became a mum, too short for running around with a baby!

  10. I am a denim girl too Ada! I love the shorts paired with a simple tank and red shoes! And I have not worn my denim skirt all summer! I always kept it back for cooler weather, but I love it styled for summer! Thanks for giving me a new outfit idea!! Susan

  26. These are such cute denim looks--I love that pencil skirt especially. That's something I really need--my denim pencil skirt has reached the end of it's life, sadly. I'd also like some white jean shorts!
