what to wear today

I was inspired by Hilary’s denim dress, from what to wear to the office, to what to wear to stylishly take out the trash!      So I went in search of some current styles to add to your spring wardrobe.  I always thought of denim as a distinctly American fabric so I was surprised to learn of its origins.   The name “denim” comes from fabric called “Serge de Nîmes”, initially made in Nîmes, France, hence “de Nîmes” – “denim”.    It was out of this sturdy fabric that Jacob W. Davis and Levi Strauss created the first pair of jeans.   But the cloth’s transformation from cowboy to catwalk has created an entire industry worldwide.  While it is never out of style, denim in other forms and shapes seem to be very much in vogue right now.    With that in mind I perused a few of our affiliates and came up with a super selection of affordable, wearable pieces to fill out your spring and summer wardrobe.

First stop was J.McLaughlin where I found this assortment of easy wearable styles.

Next, to my tried and true J CREW for a selection of separates that are so fresh and fun to wear everyday.  Denim and the shade of saddle brown is a natural pairing.
