Summer denim

This spring, I keep spotting beautiful women around Manhattan wearing chambray shirts and dresses. There's something so flattering about denim—it's a little tomboy, while still being feminine. Here are a few pretty pieces...
Clockwise: Shift dress, campground shirt, pinafore, mini wedges and fold-over clutch. Thoughts? Which would you wear?

Lately, this has been my favorite fashion go-to. Want to make any outfit better? Throw on a denim jacket!

I approve :)

My family nicknamed me "Blue Jean Queen" way back in junior high. I just love how well denim wears! I want that pinafore dress, you can easily dress it up or down.

I love chambray shirts! I already own three in different different washes from Madewell. The shift dress is cute!

This outfit - http://pinterest.com/pin/21603273185029844/ - is a bit warm for summer but I'm loving it! Dark Jeans and Chambray top with a brown belt :) I'll have to try the Chambray Dress combo!

It's been my favorite lately! Definitely a closet essential! As much as I love my leggings and feel more comfortable wearing it, if I want to look more stylish in casual wear, denims are way to go!

Tips: If you want a variety of selection, those of you have no problems thrifting, I suggest you go visit your local thrift stores! A lot of amazing finds in a cheaper price!

I have had that shirt for well over a year now and it is hands down my favorite item to wear. It is so versatile! I even wear it to the office tucked in to white denim with a belt. I also love how the white paint on the little metal buttons has chipped off and it looks well loved and broken in.

Just bought a chambray shirt and I have to stop myself from wearing it once a week.

fancyalterego said...

I'm kind of diggin' the mini wedges! I also have been rocking the chambray shirt trend, though I think I ended up with one that's a bit too big (thanks to having boobs, fitted button-down shirts are about impossible to find). Oh crap...it's DENIM...I'm totally throwing it in the dryer next time!

Man, I'm having a ditzy kind of day!

Kiana said...

My that's a short dress! Don't think most people could pull that off but it's really cute on the model.

McKenzie said...

I love that dress! It's so light and cool!

I'm a big fan of chambray tops with a nice chunky necklace!

Ruby Sterland said...

Really love the pinafore, especially with the striped tee x

What's not to love in a chambray top. My favorite thing though is its versatility. It can be worn alone or layered and in every season.

Aja Lake [the gold hat.] said...

i saw that pinafore yesterday. my mom would love it!
i'd sport the shirt, the shift (super cute with my red chucks!) or the clutch. good picks, joanna:) xx

Love denim! I guess it works for the fall too!

I got this (http://www.gapcanada.ca/browse/product.do?cid=82417&vid=1&pid=451733003) denim dress from Gap the other week and am completely in love! I made it a bit more edgy with Gap's neon pink flats and a chunky necklace. I'm ready to hit the street in no time!

Any idea what shade/brand of lipstick the model is wearing?

I love denim too! It looks great with lipstick :)

Lizzie Polish said...

I love chambray shirts for the fall and spring but I find them way too warm in the summer. Maybe in the evening in the country but I can't walk around in the city in July in long sleeve denim. I don't really even wear jeans in the summer. I do agree they're adorable though.

MadelineFarley said...

I have this outfit on today.. Love it!

I adore the pinafore dress (especially with those stripes). Perfect outfit!

Mani said...

I love that first look so much! The denim complements her hair so well.

Rachel Babbles said...

I am totally in LOVE with the current chambray fad!

Those sandals are really cute!

Joanna Goddard said...

@joeycake i just laughed out loud.

Joanna Goddard said...

good to know! i'm sure it looks so cute with white denim.

Joanna Goddard said...

haha too funny.

Joanna Goddard said...

i thought the same! although i bet the model is like 20 feet tall.

Joanna Goddard said...

cute! i love the collar.

Joanna Goddard said...

not sure, although i recently got a NARS chubby stick thing and it's similar...i'll look up the color!

Joanna Goddard said...

totally. red hair + denim is adorable. my sister recently dyed her hair red and she looks so cute in anything blue.

LRB said...

I am so obsessed with denim on denim this season. Love that clutch.

I love that pinafore! I'm not so sure it would suit me or look good on my figure, but it's seriously cute. I wouldn't mind finding a pair of light weight denim overalls. I think that would be more my style. I just bought a new chambray shirt yesterday from the Gap. I needed a replacement for an old favourite that I wore to death, and I had been searching for the perfect one for ages. I am over the moon that I finally found it! And it was 30% off:)

I agree very much about the whole denim thing. :)
Just want to say that the mini wedges are just so cute! I'm not really a high-heels type of person, so that height of the heel is perfect.

Jane said...

The first dress look absolutely perfect!

jm said...

These are all so so cute! Especially the pinafore dress.

i've been wearing the heck out of my madewell chambray shirt lately...it goes with everything!

RosieB said...

I love denim shirts so much! Just bought one from H&M that can be worn as a jacket too, and it's so versatile. I have to keep from wearing it over everything!

I'm wearing my denim shirt today. I'm in love with it. And my son (2,5 years) has one of his own and i love to see him wearing it, it goes great with everything, specialy colourfull jeans

Katie said...

I have an old denim button-down that was my grandmother's. its so baggy and soft and perfect to layer over V-necks.

My boyfriend loves denim miniskirts, and i recently bought one to make him happy. I think theyre less versatile and too easy to look trashy in. I have to figure out how to wear it now...

Tasneem Hussain said...

I love the look of a comfy chambray shirt. I have yet to find one that looks the way I want when I try it on though. Sigh...hopefully soon.

Lubna O. said...

I'm definitely into denim this summer. I'd love me a pair of overalls!

Love the denim outfit. It is amazing to see the denim get into our hearts and blood. Just until a few decades ago, denim ( and pants overall) was a taboo for women. See how things changed over time - now we can wear denim head to toe....
