Dressed up Denim on Denim

I just returned from NYC earlier this week.  On travel day, I wore a casual denim-on-denim ensemble complete with comfy flats.  Since I was unable to photograph that outfit, I decided to recreate it for today’s post. With a little inspiration from Olivia Palermo, though, I took that casual denim-on-denim outfit and spruced it up a bit.

An ivory tuxedo jacket with black lapels adds some polish while maintaining the menswear theme.  A multistrand pearl necklace, lace clutch, and red pumps add feminine touches.

Location: Kingshighway/Magnolia entrance to Tower Grove Park, St. Louis

I’m considering removing the shoulder pads from this jacket. This jacket has a drapey, relaxed feel, so the
shoulder pads seem to stand out too much.   

I’m linking with Mix and Match Fashion for the What I Wore to Work challenge today.
