DENIM ON THE HIGH STREET
I’ve recently had my eye on this peter pan collar dress from Miss Selfridge and a couple of pairs of these shorts from Topshop. My rediscovered love for the traditionally functional material has been combined with my continuous love for lace appliques and embellished collars. The thing with denim is that no matter what type of garment it is, it always feels casual and youthful. Like I can imagine wearing the bodycon dress with a pair of gladiator sandals during Summer, for picnics or a day trip, rather than clubbing. It just seems too casual for a night out (“out OUT!”).
Dungarees playsuits and pinafore dresses, on the other hand, I’m really unsure of. I love the look of them on others but I don’t like how “young” it makes me. Maybe the key is to layer with the right blouse or t-shirt underneath. I don’t know, but I’ve seen it look great on other girls, Alexa Chung style, but it just doesn’t suit me. I don’t think I’m cool enough! What do you guys think of the denim trend? Love it or hate it?

I wasn't very keen on denim either but now I'm in love with it!
Denim dresses are perfect in the summer.
I love denim! I've really struggled to find a cute pinafore that fits me well though, it's starting to feel like a hopeless case! For the moment I'll just settle with denim skater skirts. No.6 is so pretty x

Denim is everywhere this season. Love some of your selections.
I've become something of a denim addict in recent times and I've even become a DUNGAREE ADDICT. Yes, it's actually happened to me!

I love double denim as long as is different shades of denim. I just bought a denim dress similar to the ones pictured xx

I must admit I do love a good denim. Currently courting some dungarees I am not so sure suit me but I love nonetheless!

Great picks! Love number 4, really need to get my hands on a dungaree dress 🙂 ♥
These are all lovely! Love seeing so much denim in the shops at the moment 🙂 x
I love denim because I'm a big fan of jeans! However, I think it depends on what colour the denim is and I don't really like playsuits much. They're a hard trend to pull off right! ♥
I love all the denim pinafores in the shops but they don't suit me at all!

Gotta love denim! The denim with white lace is such a cute combo!
in love with this post, and your whole entire blog in general.
lots of love from the casper&pearl girls – a little Aussie fashion brand
I've been loving the denim 'trend'. Wanted a pair of dungarees for years and now there's suddenly an abundance of them on the high street!
I know what you mean, I absolutely despised denim other than jeans, but it's very much an item (jacket or something) one needs to have!
I think the collage looks great 🙂
Argggh I am in love with number 5! It is soooo cute! Great collection xx
I actually really like this denim trend, and I'm usually the least trend-focused person in the world! I love the topshop dress with the lace applique, it would be soooo nice for a sunny day in the park (like today). Good post!
I have been getting back into denim d=recently, I love the denim dress here!
