No fear of denim on denim for a great look

Today’s post is a little Show and Tell fashion/style in fashion over 40. I wore this outfit as a fake suit at work for Casual Friday a week ago. I thought it is a quite simple look, not something special. Thus, I was quite astonished that so many people loved the denim skirt with a denim jacket look.

It was not the first time that I wore a denim-on-denim outfit to work on Casual Friday. I had done it before several times, but always in the combination of jeans and a denim jacket or skinnies and a denim dress.

I don’t know why I never had the idea before to wear this skirt with a denim jacket. I had worn my denim skirt with a white denim jacket about a year ago, but not with one of my blue denim jacket. I like the look. I will try to wear the denim skirt with my sequin denim jacket on Friday, if weather permits.

How cooperative is the weather where you live? Can you already wear your new purchases you made for this spring/summer season? Or do you still have to “winterize” your new items to be able to wear them now?  Just curious.

Terri is a retired K-12 visual art teacher, but still substitute teaches. Art and Design has always been a great passion. In high school, she was sketching clothes and accessories, and her Mom taught her to sew. The perfect combination for a fashion designer and early on fashionista. This skills also allowed her to have a large and unique wardrobe. Terri grew up in Missouri, and calls Kansas City her hometown. Besides fashion she was breeding Shetland Sheep. Of course, these sheep contributed to her fashion with their beautiful wool. Terri developed hand knitted patterns and had a few published in magazines. She still has two patterns on Ralvery and one of the, The Fling, is a free download. Given this interesting background she really has something to share on her blog.

Top of the World OOTDs

To support other fashion and style bloggers, I added a new feature to the Top of the World Style linkup party last week. A random generator picks one post. The blogger who submitted the post becomes the Top of the World Style Winner. S/he is featured at the next party in addition to the Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav and Top of the World OOTD My Fav. Of course, the winner also gets a cool logo for their sidebar, featured or awards page (see below). 🙂

Since the party runs a week minus 5 minutes, this feature will have temporal delay of two weeks for technical reasons. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.

Aline Rocha Taddei Brodbeck, the blogger at Blog Femina, became Top of the World OOTD My Fav. I like the very feminine vibe of her outfit and the mix of print and pattern in all variations of red. The necklace and pointy-toe pumps with gold hardware are the perfect finish for this Southern Belle look. It could be  an outfit for a modern version of “Gone with the Wind.” ❤
