DENIM | A Midwest Memoir

Denim days are alive + well this season! It may seem like a no-brainer must have for your wardrobe {especially living in West Michigan when you wear live in denim 90% of the year}, but with endless options finding the perfect denim pieces takes serious effort! Or maybe you're like me + have finally found your perfect fit, but want to switch up your basic denim options with something more fun! Today on the blog, I'm sharing my favorite fresh + unexpected denim trends for fall.

Look 1 | Leopard Dress x Zara | Crop Top x Goodwill | White Flares x ├ętica | Ankle Boots x Sparrow Boutique

If you're still living in the "no white after Labor Day" era - 1) You haven't been following me very long + 2) This might not be the blog post for YOU! {Just keepin' it real!} I actually prefer to style my white denim in the fall/winter to add a fresh element to my everyday look! For this look, I wanted to play with layering one of my favorite shirt dresses as a duster {my tried + true style tip}. Plus playing with proportion is always fun with a higher waist + crop top situation {don't put those away this season}. I plan to LIVE in this high-waisted {win} flared {win-win} pair of denim. Oh + FLARES ARE BACK by the way! 

Look 2 | Black Denim Jacket x Free People via Sparrow Boutique | Sweater x TJMAXX | Green Pant x Sparrow Boutique | Leopard Boots x Target

A denim jacket is the wardrobe style staple! Everyone + their mom owns the classic blue denim jacket, but have you ever thought about black? I didn't + now I'm o b s e s s e d ! I actually prefer the black option since it will literally go with EVERYTHING, not to mention it solves the whole "Canadian tuxedo" aka denim on denim debate! For this look, I kept it casual + played around with fall color blocking. My favorite colors for fall include wine + green {especially together}. We can't forget leopard print {another style trend that's EXPLODED this season} for a pop of fun!

Look 3 | Oversized Acid Wash Denim Jacket x Levi's via TJMAXX {Men's Section} | Midi Dress x Forever 21 | Fanny Pack x Target | Sock Boots x Marshalls

This season is all about the throwback trends + acid wash is a pleasant surprise. When I spotted this oversized version in the men's section at TJMAXX I about fainted. I was drawn to the edgy vibes + it was LEVI'S {another "throwback" brand that I'm obsessed with}. I thought it would be fun to elevate this super casual jacket with a midi dress {love the mustard color this season too} + sock boots. I didn't want my waist to get lost, so instead of going with a traditional belt I added my belted fanny pack that I scored at Target for $8.98! 

LOOK 4 | Leather Jacket x The Counting House | Plaid Top x TJMAXX {Mens Section} | Rib Cage Wide Leg Denim x Levi's | Ankle Boots x Sparrow Boutique

Each season I have a list of pieces I plan to add to my wardrobe. For fall I have been on the hunt for a pair of wide leg denim! One of my favorite influencers, Sai of Scout The City had been raving about the Rib Cage style of Levi's denim {she has an amazing lookbook on YouTube featuring her favorite styles}. This style has been on my wish list, but I was hesitant about ordering them online since I didn't know what size to purchase. Long story longer, we went to the Levi's store in Chicago + I FELL IN LOVE with this pair! They are SO comfortable, ultra high waisted + flattering to my 5'2" frame. I definitely plan to style these multiple ways, but love the traditional fall vibes of this look! Plaid + leather are always a winning pair for fall!

LOOK 5 | Plaid Jacket x TJMAXX | Paris Tee x Sparrow Boutique | Wedgie Fit Straight Leg Denim x Levi's | Studded Boots x TJMAXX

So basically this midwest memoir is a love letter to Levi's! {I told you I was obsessed!} Like the wide leg pair, I also scored these in Chicago + learned about this Wedgie Fit style from Sai aka Scout the City! {Even influencers are influenced sometimes!} Grey denim are one of my favorite options for fall/winter for the same reason I gravitate towards white - a fresh element to the everyday look! I feel like this look is also "elevated edge" with the longline plaid print, graphic tee + studded ankle boots! 

So there you have it - that's my fall denim look book! Which look could you see yourself wearing? Better question - what denim style trends are you rockin' this fall?
