Transeasonal Denim Done Two Ways

March 29, 2018

Has anyone else felt like March has been an insanely emotionally challenging month? My personal life has felt like a pan of scrambled eggs. Everything from work deadlines to challenging health obstacles I’ve never so eagerly awaited the end of a month as much as I have with March 2018. (Not that the end of a month solves anything but you know, clean slate just helps things mentally.)

At least seasons are changing and I’m grateful for that. I just adore transeasonal dressing. More layers = more fun!

Speaking of transeasonal, is there anything more versatile than a denim jacket? This one has a dark black wash and finished with light brushing and abrasions for a beautiful lived-in feel. I was clearly inspired by the 70’s and the flower power kids, embracing my inner hippy with a floral maxi dress paired with some comfy trainers for the perfect effortless street style  look.

Denim overalls – the ultimate off-duty style. A.k.a coffee hunting outfit. Comfortable and adaptable for any situation or style. Also having a major crush on beret’s at the moment ever since I discovered they the perfect beanie alternative, they really do keep your ears warm!

Which look do you prefer? L.A chic flower power gal or wannabe Parisian painter?

It’s a bohemian week on My Life in Pink this week it seems. Loving Natasha Poly’s look for Vogue Paris so I’ve put together my own look inspired by her.

Oh the love I have for my denim button up skirt. It was the first thing I purchased when I arrived in London. I guess it was Alexa Chung’s effortless styling of the skirt that kept popping up on my Pinterest timeline over and over again that got me lusting for my own.

The button-front-A-line skirt has got to be my favourite pick from the seventies trend. Just like a pair of well fitted jeans, the denim skirt is an item of clothing that can be adapted to any sort of look and feel.

Play it casual in a pair of sneakers and a simple white tee, accentuate your waistline by adding a belt or dress things up with a pair of heels and a cute blouse. Try a lighter wash of denim for the upcoming Summer months. Or if you based in the Northern hemisphere, opt for a midi button up skirt teamed with a chunky knit as seen here.

There’s pretty no reason not to own a botton up skirt this season.
