OOTD - The Canadian Tuxedo



Casual Sundays - is there anything better? Most of my weekends off are jammed packed with activities, visiting family and friends, so when I do get a lazy Sunday it's cause for a celebration.  Denim on denim, or the "Canadian Tuxedo" is my favourite new casual look - very on-trend, making you look effortlessly put-together.  Read on for additional photos and outfit details.



Chambray shirt - H&M (recent), Jeans - American Eagle (one of the only places I've found that accommodates a short leg)
Pumps - Banana Republic, Watch - Marc by Marc Jacobs (old - similar)
I originally didn't think that the denim on denim look was for me, but I've done a few things to make me more comfortable. I've opted for different shades of denim to break up the look a bit - a dark wash for the jeans and a light chambray shirt on top.  A thick belt also helped to break up the monochromatic look.  I chose a pair of classic nude pumps to add a bit of femininity to the outfit - but if you were to catch me running around town doing errands, then flats it would be.

What do you think of the ever-popular denim on denim look?
