Brag Vintage

Double denim is one of those 'looks' which can either go extremely wrong-Britney and Justin circa 2001, with rhinestone accessories to match. Or it can be one of those outfits that just works and you don't get the feeling of denim "over-kill". I decided to go for the latter option in todays outfit as double denim is always something I wanted to experiment with. So when I got my hands on this vintage lee denim jacket, from Brag Vintage I saw it as an excuse to give the "DD" look a go... 

With the look being something I haven't previously tried before I wanted to keep the overall feel subtle and not in your face. This led me to team the jacket with this pair of distressed black denim mom jeans which I acquired from Boohoo last year (and are still my favourite jeans to date). I love how they are the same/similar shade of black and add a subtle contrast with the distressed fabric, especially how the jeans are slightly fitted whereas the jacket has an oversized aesthetic. Which I adore as it adds to the grunge feel of the whole outfit, needless to say you can expect a few more outfit posts to come featuring the jacket that has stolen my heart this Valentine's.

Shoes are one of those accessories that I don't often switch up that regularly on the blog, as for me I love a good pair of black boots and will tend wear them all year round as comfort in footwear is key. So when these "Pampa Mid LP Lea" from Palladium landed on my doorstep, you couldn't believe my delight at owning another pair of one of the comfiest brands of shoes that I have ever owned. 

I love the height of them as they are a nice medium between hi-tops and low rise fit, making them such a flattering shoe to wear on-the-go. Another thing that drew me to these shoes was their super soft leather feel, as besides from looking amazing they are actually a pretty practical/sturdy boot. This is perfect for me as I am always on the move and need a shoe that will last, also as I'm off to Centre Parcs with the family in a couple weeks I know these shoes will serve their true purpose and be the perfect accompaniment for the trip.

Denim is by far a staple in a majority of peoples wardrobe, whether thats a pair of jeans to a denim jacket. Dungarees are for me the item which I have found myself becoming more and more obsessed with owning and expanding my ever-growing collection. They are such a versatile piece of clothing that can be both dressed down to form a "workers chic" outfit to dressing them up with something a little more sophisticated, by pairing them with a fitted top and heels. Especially with spring being the season to rejuvenate and refresh your wardrobe, what better way to do so than with a denim staple from Fat Face's women's range.

For todays post I wanted to share with you two outfits to show how versatile this pair of dungarees (by Fat Face) are, by layering with a variety of different pieces.
For the first outfit I decided to pair said dungarees with a chunky knit roll neck jumper as I adore the subtle colour contrast of the berry shade against the black. To add a focal point to the look I also decided to tie my varsity jacket around my waist, as I love how it "dresses-up" the whole ensemble.

For the last look I went for a classic breton striped top, also from Fat Face as I find this pairing adds a hint of 'Parisian chic' to the outfit. I then popped on my beloved bomber jacket to make the whole look feel more "weather appropriate" as well as adding a subtle hint of grunge.
If you too feel like giving your wardrobe a makeover than be sure to check out Face Face's range of denim staples.
