18 Aug No Denim challenge: Day 1 (OOTD)
As promised, I am going a whole week without denim and I am going to take the time to document my everyday outfit so show you that there are options to dress up and look nice and feel comfortable without adding denim to your wardrobe. Being a denim addict myself, I am not giving my other clothes a chance to see the light.
So today was date time with the hubs and I..we had a few little errands to run, down in Ramallah city, and so we decided to take the opportunity and spend time together playing bowling, having supper, shopping and the strolling around the city. He works like crazy and only has 1 day weekend and we sometimes do not spend enough time together and so having the little time like today means so much and I always try to make the best of it.
So here’s what I went for today:
I feel in love with this shirt the minute I saw it on the Topshop website. I knew I would have this piece in my wardrobe for a very long time. It’s loose but not too much, which means I can tuck it in my pants if I want…and the good part about this shirt is the print which makes it very versatile to mix and match to different other pieces in my wardrobe. Oranges and yellows aren’t usually colors I go for but this time I dared to go orange because it’s color-blocked. I have said it before and I will say it again, Topshop is always my go to place for good, tailored, stylish and quality shirts…they just know how to make them right.
I paired my color-blocked shirt with my favorite Forever 21 trouser. They have been in my closet for a good 4ish years and I am super proud that they still look like new. I bought them in the sales section and only paid like a little less than 20$…I wish they would make them again, because the fit is just so freaking fabulous and the fabric is to die for!!! It’s light enough to wear in the summer and the tapered cut is super stylish. I usually like to wear them with tops tucked in…which is what I did today. The grey color is a perfect neutral which makes them easy to wear with pretty much everything you own.
WHAT I WORE:
SHIRT: Topshop ◊ PANTS: Forever 21 ◊ SHOES: Coverse ◊ SUNNIES: Aldo ◊ BAG: Aldo
…and since we were going to walk around the city, I needed to be comfortable and this is why I took out these babies out…
I wore them to death and they’re still going strong! The reason why I love these shoes so much is because they’re leather and not fabric. So they look fancy enough to wear with smart pants! Comfort is totes there and I can always count of my favorite Converse shoes. I am thinking of investing is another pair in a cool color to wear for a pop of color…perhaps a fuchsia or an orange…
This bag was given to me as a wedding gift…which was weird at the time…but now that I think about it, it was the best gift I received. I have used this bag countless time and I will continue to use it…Aldo gets it right when it comes to down to accessories. I can always count on them for bags!
I say for day 1 without denim…this outfit was a success and I cannot wait to keep playing mix and match with the rest of my items in my wardrobe.
