It’s crazy to think that August is nearing its end. School has been in session for a couple of weeks now, and I’m finally getting back into a routine-sort of. I’ve been so busy, which is good and bad. I like to be occupied, but sometimes I feel as if there isn’t enough time in the day. I’m hoping things will slow down soon, but if not, I’ll just have to speed up.
The end of August does not only mark the (almost) end of summer, but it also marks the end of denim month in the fashion world. August is typically when most magazines release their “denim issues,” and there is something about blue jeans that reminds me of the start of the school year. Last July, I compiled various denim looks together in one post to provide some inspiration for August, but this year I wore some denim looks of my own.
All throughout August, I took snaps of my denim looks whenever I could. All of my looks are down below, so let’s get started.
My denim jeggings from American Eagle are becoming a staple for me. They are super versatile and comfortable, which is an added plus.
With my jeans, I wore my purple tie-dye adidas, and my green flowy blouse. Though simple, I found the look to be pretty stylish.
I built this look around my white frilly blouse from Charlotte Russe. I got the blouse off the clearance rack, so it was quite the steal. I love the shape of this blouse because it created layers in my outfit. Since my top had a flare, I thought it would look super cute with some denim shorts. For extra contrast, I wore my dark brown sandals. I loved how flirty, girly, and summery this look was.
Nothing celebrates denim month more than a denim romper. I love this romper because it’s cute and playful. I wanted to add some color to my outfit, and I get chilly throughout the day, so I layered my romper with a pink flannel. To complement the pink and the navy blue tones, I wore my beige sandals from American Eagle. I was really happy with how this outfit turned out.
The day that this picture was taken I had to work. At JCPenney, we are required to wear a red top and denim bottoms on the weekends. I get pretty bored with this combination, so I try my best to add some flare to my uniform. On this particular day, I added my black vest and my black, studded Sam Edelman shoes that my god mom got for me a couple years ago( shout out to Brandi). I stayed within dress code, but I also showcased my personality. It was a win-win.
Boyfriend jeans are my favorite! I’ve been wearing them for a few years now, and I love wearing them with sneakers or slip on shoes like my Sperrys. Boyfriend jeans give off such a cool and laid back vibe, but they are still really stylish. My jeans and my red top are all from American Eagle-go figure( if you haven’t realized it yet, AE is my favorite store). I wanted to accessorize a little bit so I wore my simple, silver necklace. On this day, I felt comfortable and cool.
The boot cut jean is not only perfect with a nice pair of boots, but really any shoe with a lift. I typically save my boot cut jeans for fall, but I thought it would be fun to cheat and wear them a little earlier. With my jeans, I wore my white cami from Charlotte Russe with a green bomber from AE. As for shoes, I wore my brown sandals. I loved the earthy color scheme of this outfit. Over the years, I’ve favored neutral color schemes because they never fail me.
I took this picture today. I didn’t have time to take a full body photo because, ya know, life, but I was happy I managed to get this shot. I had to work today, so the red and the denim came back out. Wanting to spice up my uniform, I didn’t go with the traditional denim jeans, opting instead for a jean skirt. I love jean skirts. They are so playful, and I remember wearing them a lot as a little kid. Who else remembers skorts? I used to wear denim skorts all the time too hahaha. I wore a knit vest with my skirt and red top to add some dimension. I complemented my outfit with my Sperrys.
I love denim because it’s classic and simple. A lot of people love their sweats, but I think a great pair of jeans are just as comfortable. Denim is timeless, having remained cool across several decades. I’m glad the fashion world takes a month to celebrate it.
It was fun compiling this denim lookbook for you! Fall is coming soon, so enjoy the warm weather while it lasts!
Have a great rest of your August.
