Denim on Denim Summer Style

If I’m not wearing my coveted off the shoulder dresses and tops, then you can often find me going ultra casual this summer with a simple denim on denim style featuring my favorite wardrobe accessory, the chambray button up.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m turning 33 in a couple of weeks, but my style as of lately is epitome of casual. I don’t like clothes that I have to fuss with. I want easy, can be mixed and matched between outfits and are super comfortable. That’s probably why I live in my chambray button up and denim shorts.

The way I tend to “up” the outfit from basic & boring to basic & fun is typically with accessories. I own over 30 hats, have an entire jewelry wall in master bathroom and love a good handbag. Since I’m constantly on-the-go between traveling, concerts and going out with friends I love love love the simplicity of this black leather tassel crossbody from Fossil. It has 3 built-in credit card slots, room for my iPhone 6 Plus (fingers crossed for the iPhone 7 Plus for my birthday!) and the leather is buttery soft. These days, with the cameras on our phones, that’s all I need to leave home with. It’s quite freeing to literally go hands free with only a few items.

Speaking of going out with friends. I finally took the time to walk the grounds of the Santa Barbara Courthouse with my girlfriend, Aisha. I have walked by it countless times, but never actually through it. I tell you what, they set the bar high for the most stunning courthouse I’ve ever seen. The Spanish architecture is absolutely remarkable. We saw quite a few wedding photos happening & even took the opportunity to snap some as well.
