Urban Tuxedo

| jacket: Gap | blouse: Old Navy | purse: Marc Jacobs via Carina | jeans: Gap | flats: Old Navy |

Three things:
1. This outfit is a pin for the win from this pin. And yeah, that first photo is an exact recreation. I never claimed to be super creative, alright? Something about a silky blouse paired with ripped jeans just got me. Like most, lately I've gravitated toward styles that have some sort of unexpected pairing- this outfit expresses it exactly. 

2. I realize this is yet another (Canadian, or whatever you want to call it!) tuxedo! At this point, let's all just agree- denim with denim isn't even weird, or a statement. These shades of denim are different enough (+ a VSCOCam filter) that it barely even looks like I'm wearing denim on denim. 

3. My mom was in town last weekend, for the first time in a few years. It was a wonderful, "mom" weekend. We cooked, we snuggled, we shopped, and the weather was crummy but it hardly affected our cozy plans. Nothing is like having your mom around. I took maybe three photos, two of them being selfies, but here we are baking Finnish buns (called pulla) on Sunday! 

photos edited with VSCOCam and taken by my friend Hillary, who has a really cool life

Pin wins are the best! I love the denim on denim look! And you're right! It's no longer weird or a statement. Still love it though!
I'm glad you had a good weekend with your mom. Moms make everything better!
