It's a Skirt; No, it's a pair of pants; No, it's denim on denim.

Hi Friends; I feel so excited sharing this post because I am so happy and relaxed. I had a very entertaining time with my kids this evening and this whole blog post was a family collaboration. I got back from work today and wanted to take the kids  to the park but was a little tired so I decided to just spend some time with them outdoors. When I was looking for something casual and comfy to wear, I thought "why not do a denim on denim look?"
I reached for this old skirt of mine which I really think is the statement piece in the whole outfit. My girls; five and three helped me to choose the accessories. My older girl picked the necklace while the younger girl picked the shoes (fashionistas in the bud) but they kept staring curiously at my outfit the whole time. "Mum, is this a skort or a skirt?" "Are you wearing Pants or skirt?" I was not so surprised that they were deceived by this skirt and I led them on by keeping the skirt tucked in between my legs and walking awkwardly around the house. You can see from the pictures below that I really did a good job deceiving them and even my seven year old son who is my new photographer (I have retired my tripod) kept asking me? "Mom, are you wearing two kinds of pants?" "What kind of skirt is this?" 

I got tired of deceiving them and just burst out laughing and they saw that I was really wearing a skirt...:-). The skirt kind of looked like culottes in the pics above when I tucked them in between my legs but it's actually a very cool denim midi skirt. My other denim shirt that I wore here was a little too dark for the look I was going for so, I used this chambray shirt instead. So, is this the season denim on denim trend? Or, is this just chambray on denim? Chambray, denim, what's the difference? We didn't care so much but we had some fun outdoors with the kids scribbling on the porch and running around and me just excited that they had all provided their valuable input to this blog post.

  5. This is a really cool denim skirt. I once owned a shorter midi length as well but it no longer fits me anymore. Sadly I have to put it back in the back of my wardrobe and hoping one day I can fit into it again! You look great!
