Double Denim

 I’ve been sharing my outfits here on the blog for quite a while now. I ‘d like to say I have created a well of style inspiration from which to draw at any given time. The funny thing is though, whenever I’m at a loss for what to wear, I always fall back on the same exact formula: denim x denim. Canadian Tuxedo, Texas Tux, whatever you want to call it. I know I can always count on some double denim to make me look like I tried, but not too hard. It immediately gives you that elusive ‘effortless’ look (that otherwise usually requires quite a bit of effort). I also love a good vintage band tee, and Sublime has to be one of my all time favorite bands – even though you can hardly call anything 90’s ‘vintage’ yet – can you?

Actually to me, it feels like the 90’s wasn’t even that long ago, and I still love everything about it. A couple of years ago I even wrote an entire blog post called ‘why I love the 90’s‘. There was an alternative culture that I wholly embraced as a teen, and seeing it translated through fashion on the runway the past few years stirs up all kinds of emotion in me. It was all about being authentic, rejecting conformity, and living in the moment. Right now more than ever we need to hold true to those values if we want to see positive change come about in the world. One clothing line on my radar that is embracing that philosophy, (which will hopefully end up in my closet very soon), is R13 by Chris Leba (these jeans and this jacket are currently in my shopping cart).

The way I like to do denim on denim is to mix and match the wash, light and dark. Also another fashion idol of mine wears it perfectly here. It doesn’t have to be a big difference in color but even the slightest will do the trick. Of course to keep current, I went with a looser fitting straight leg denim, this pair by Levi’s is my favorite. This Fall denim is all about a looser fit, slightly darker denim, with less rips and distressing. I’m not getting rid of my skinny jeans just yet though…

Have a great week guys. Thanks for visiting as always xx

  • Happy 9 Year anniversary to the love of my life @tom_sandberg! Real talk, whoever needs to hear this rn who is struggling to be with the person they love - whether it’s because of what other people think about their race, religion, sexuality, or even status (yes still a thing!) - my advice is - Follow your heart! It’s the *only* thing that matters. It’s the only thing that’s TRUE. Society and other people DO NOT matter. Sorry if that’s aggressive but it’s the truth. Who you wake up next to each day, does matter - a LOT. SO glad I went against a lot of the ‘advice’ well intentioned people gave me, and married this hunky dude who cracks me up and doesn’t take my shit - but loves it regardless. Here’s a series of pics that describe our relationship perfectly- me trying to be hella extra for pics per usual - and him either going along or extremely confused. (Swipe to see the pic where I’m asking him to lift me above his head)
  • Pro tip for moving with kids - especially during summer vacation - figure out your childcare/activities/summer camps BEFORE you move! Trying to do it in the midst of living out of boxes is stressful AF. Unpacking and having tools and other unsafe objects everywhere with a toddler running around is impossible. I went from having childcare two days a week to zero - and finding a great provider is a process that shouldn’t be rushed. We are getting there though, slowly but surely! Since I haven’t had time to take any new pics - here’s another from our trip to the Scottish Highland games this past weekend! I’d throw in a GOT reference but I don’t watch it so I don’t know any of the characters 🙈
  • Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there - and especially to my  @tom_sandberg! We love you! (Even though we forgot to get you a present 🙈)
  • Today was the first day we left our hot mess of a (newly moved in) house - and even though I know it takes time to get settled in, my inner OCD Virgo perfectionist wants the house to be picture perfect by now - but regardless of how much there is to do, we spent some time at the Scottish Highland games today and the kids had a blast - especially with these adorable pups! Swipe to see ❤️
  • Hey guys! It’s been a whirlwind week - we moved out of one house, stayed in a hotel for a few days, then moved in to our new home! (See a tour in my ‘home’ highlights) Currently I’m drowning in a heap of boxes, I haven’t washed my hair in forever, and living on iced coffee and leftover pizza ~ thank you so much to everyone who dm’d me well wishes and even prayers for our family - it means so much to  us! 🙏🏾💕
  • #ad Almost done packing weee! Glad I have @SecretDeodorant’s #AluminumFree Deodorant with me for my more relaxed days! It's dye, paraben, and aluminum free PLUS glides on clear and dry! Watch my stories to see me do a skin-feel test.
  • Can’t seem to shake the funk im in after starting watching @ava’s ‘When They See Us’ on @netflix - I can only watch a little at a time because it really affects me hard - I posted about it in my stories and SO many of you agree and shared with me you cried while watching it. I like to keep things light around here but I just want to say if you haven’t already - watch it - it’s so important that we all face reality and not live in our own bubbles. Hopefully the increased awareness will lead to actual systemic changes. *end rant*
  • My favorite girl in her cute Eid dress from grandma! We celebrated today with family and just made it easy on ourselves and went to Chuck E Cheese ~ p.s. this will probably be our last pic in front of this door 😫😫#eidoutfit #mommyandme #ansabjahangirstudio
  • Feeling like I’m floating into Eid in this gorgeous cape suit - my second Eid look thanks to @basimmichelle - Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating! Let’s eat! 🍴 #basimmichelle #eidoutfit #pssEid
