Fall Back to Staples: A Week of Denim

It’s fall, ready or not, which means it’s never a bad time to fall back on wardrobe staples, especially the ones that get better with age: your favorite jeans and your favorite tee.

Never needing much more than just that, we put together a 7 days of denim style post featuring the new Target Style denim. Both myself and my team were excited about the quality of the denim, and were happy with the fit and feel after wearing them the past couple weeks.

Monday: Back To Work with Denim on Denim

Indigo, forever! If the original Super Models could wear all denim on their cover shots, we can call the look “iconic”. Make it your own with a fun pair of sneakers.

Tuesday: Take Back Tuesday with Black on Black

When in doubt, wear all black. Tuesday are notoriously tough for me, whether I’m catching the 7am flight out of MSP or rolling into our share studio space (a whopping 5 minute commute from my house), I rarely leave enough time to think about what to put on. So here we have it: the uniform du jour, with a nice update thanks to some new Target denim.

Wednesday: Work from Home Humpday

Tuesdays are usually filled with meetings, which means Wednesdays are ideal for hiding out and catching up on work. On a rare occasion, I’m able to work from home. While staying in your PJs is tempting, a relaxed boyfriend jean is just the ticket, in case I have to meet the judging eye of the FedEx delivery man.

Thursday: To and Fro in White and Blush

Thursdays are crazy. I’m usually in meetings, which means I need to look presentable but myself. White boyfriend jeans and a blush blazer and killer sandals does the trick.

Friday: Kickin’ it with Joggers and Sneakers

Saturday: Urban Adventuring in Stripes and Skinny Jeans

Saturdays are for pleasure, are they not? I like skinny jeans for this reason. Flattering enough to go from a picnic to a happy hour that may or may not turn into a night out that ends at 2am with a massive slice of NYC-style pizza. Because you just never know…

Sunday: Overalls for Easy Mornings at the Studio

Ah, the best and worst day of the week. If Sunday is for rest, I’m not sure I’m doing it right. What feels relaxing is, after digging through emails or doing yard work, that something big on my “to do” list gets crossed off. Overalls get me in the right mindset. These make me look less like a farmer while doing so.
