Style File: Denim on Denim

The denim jacket I'm wearing is Ralph Lauren Blue Label. It wasn't meant to come home with me. I loved the fit so much but I put it back. It was almost $5 and already have 2 denim blazers. When I got home, I got a horrible case of non buyers remorse. The next morning with the jacket still on my mind I went back. I searched the aisle twice and didn't spot it. I walked away and went back for one more look. Found it! It was still there and it was $1 cheaper. Hurrah!


We're on our way to play school at the park district. I started out wearing my workout clothes but I never made it to the fitness center. This morning I accept that it's not going to happen. I sat on the mom bench editing pictures and checking Facebook instead. 


I also accept V in my photos. It is what it is. 
Do you, Violet. Do. You.






I love this color. It's Essie's Recessionista. I got it free because of Klout perks.  This is my second Essie perk. I probably wouldn't have discovered this color otherwise. It's a really good polish. It stays on a long time but I'm not ready for the $8 price. Anyone have any tricks for increasing klout scores without spending 24/7 on social media? I want more free!

Since the denim are 2 different colors this look works out perfectly. And I love your story of how you got the jacket - I had a similar situation but didn't grab the shirt and now I have MAJOR non-buyers remorse. Found you via the RGG link up!

I have worn double denim on multiple occasions. Love the jacket. And V is so cute!! And why is nail polish so expensive. I like to hit up the dollar stores and locally owned beauty supply stores. They have some of the name brand polishes usually for less than $2.

I have always been funny about double denim, and a pair of cute denim Guess wedges have suffered in the back of the closet because of it. Maybe I'll give it a try!

I live in a neighborhood that has several nail supplies. I've only shopped once even though the prices are super cheap and cheaper if you have a tax id!
