I have always been a fan of denim shirts with jeans, however, I have to confess that I have never been able to pull it off in a way that I love... until a few weeks ago. I even wore my denim shoes!

The key when combining denim tops or jackets is making sure you combine light with dark tones. Otherwise you can look too monochromatic if both pieces are the same tone.

Another great way to make it work is to wear the top with white or black jeans. 

Coming back to this look, I loved how it came together, it was casual but different and the shoes add some difference too. You can hardly tell they are denim ;) and they are actually high so they add a twist to the outfit. 

I love the extra detail on the jeans that makes them more fun, but at the same time they make the outfit look more casual. 

If I was wearing black jeans the outfit would look more dressy.


I didn't want to add too much more to the outfit, so I went for simple earrings and a plain cuff. I actually only wear earrings when wearing button-up shirts as I find necklaces just compete with this neckline.

The colour of the top and the shoes are similar, linking the outfit from top to bottom and making it look well finished.

I wore this outfit to see clients and for a catch up with friends. I had so many compliments! Gotta love it when you find a new possibility to mix and match things you already own ;)

I am wearing: Top: Guess, Jeans: Zara, Shoes: Nine West, Earrings: Wayne Cooper.

Have an amazing week!
