Never Say Never


I hate when people make me go back on my word. I never thought that I would be wearing denim with denim. But here I am rocking the look. I still kinda loathe certain washes of denim together but atleast I'm coming around. Here is my version of the double denim trend.  I wore something a little different to work but my date insisted asked that I stuff my face with sushi for dinner with him...so this is what I threw together.
I go through phases with my clothes. I'll be really into something and do it to death and then I'm over it. A few years ago, I was all about the fedora and had to have one in every color. Once the phase was over, it's over. For some reason, I'm back into hats again so I dug this hat (a la' Kyla) out of the closet.
Here is a conversation I had with one of my female students today. I teach high school.

Student: Ms. G, why is your shirt buttoned up so high?
Me: *blank stare* Ummm, because I'm at work?
Student: Yea, but can you atleast unbutton one more button?
Me: Boo, if I did that your Papi' would be calling me Mami'.
Student: Huh?
Me: Never mind. Don't worry about my clothes!

Fedora: (old...from a vintage shop I think)
Denim Shirt: Goodwill $3
Belt/Paperbag skirt: Target
Shoes: Pour La Victoire
Louis Vuitton Sac Plat
Earrings: F21
Bracelet: Urban Outfitters


(Here is my inspiration for today's outfit: Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 Collection)

What is something you swore you would NEVER wear but find yourself atleast "leaning" in that direction again?

 For me, it's double denim. I draw the line at Jellies and Crocs. That will never happen...EVERRRRRRR!!!!!!

As we speak I am about to don a maxi dress! I swore it would never happen for anything outside of pjs (unless it was a ball gown, which is so completely different!)

I said I would never wear leggings. I lied.

Bwa ha ha ha! A kid at your school asked you to unbutton your top?!? Holy crikey, that's awesome! What the heck?

Leggings. I swore I wouldn't but I do, I do.

cheeky lil fella, eh?

I swore rompers were for girls under 14. Um yeah, so why is it when Kim Kardashian wears one she looks so grown up and glam? I finally found one I like (thank you NY & Co) and ordered it! Now, I'm on the hunt for a jumpsuit. Seems like the last one I owned was very Star Trek and very mid-90s.

You do look fantastic in this double denim ensemble! That trend still frightens me a bit, but that might also be because I'm not much of a denim girl to begin with.

Love your outfit...and the conversation with student...how funny.
I swore I'd never wear shorts again, now I have 5 pairs. This will probably be my last year...eh, maybe.

Hey, thanks for visiting my blog...and I totally get the never say never. I said I'd never wear flares or skinnies, and that's pretty much all I have in the denim department! I love this look, you did the double d right!

And oh, I love Common too. Can't wait to see him in that new movie coming out with Queen Latifah.
