I've been sporting variations of denim-on-denim a good long while now, usually opting for a "lite" version where there's color contrast in some way between the denim items. Less "lite" feels fresh so when I recently bought this Tencel-blend denim swing blouse, I knew that I would most enjoy pairing it with more blue denim. Happily it works with ALL of my blue denim, and I quite like the more retro pairings with my ultra faded cropped straights and faded blue flares; have yet to try with kick crops (still need to get those hemmed) but I'm sure that'll be fun too.

For today, though, I went with a contrasting style in a very similar wash and paired with shredded BF jeans and "shifted up" proportions -- BIG roll, peek of skin, low contrast gray booties (still looking for higher-shaft ankle boots). Silver holo clutch to keep with the low contrast and add some sparkle, rusty orange lipstick for a shot of autumnal color, and dainty silver jewelry for a touch of extra refinement. Very fond of the echoing vertical lines from the back view, with the blouse buttons and boot zippers ^^
