I am a lover of all oversized men’s shirts especially under a sweater, so casual, but the denim shirt is just timeless. With all my style icons donning double denim this spring I couldn’t not add the perfect denim shirt to my wardrobe. 

Last summer I seen Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes wear a darkish denim shirt with denim shorts and the most amazing belt and Isabel Marant sandals – I was sold. The denim shirt is also a favourite of the Olsen twins and more recently Aimee Song and L.A blogger Sincerely, Jules. I admire their laid back style, they make double denim effortlessly cool. 

So, I had been on the hunt to find my denim shirt for a while now, months actually, and just couldn’t seem to find the right one for me, and if I did it was well out of my price range. I had been wearing an older denim shirt of my boyfriends until he surprised me with this men’s denim one he found at TK -Maxx! The denim is thick and the exact colour I wanted and couldn’t find anywhere, it was perfectly oversized and mostly it was simple, it didn’t have rhinestones or anything on it like most of the ones selling in stores – it was just right. 

I haven’t been able to take it off since last week. Here are some pictures of me wearing it, they are from my instagram as I haven’t yet had time to shoot any looks due to mountains of uni work. (2 months left – it’s almost over!)

What do you think of the denim shirt and what about double denim?

Happy Monday, and have a lovely week!

    Are we separated twins? I love men's denim shirts! I had an outfit post with a men's denim shirt from adidas Originals last year (I got it at a sample sale, but my brother did not like it – so I took it 🙂 ).

    I love how denim shirts have this magical ability to transform any outfit into something chic and casual! I reallllly love this one – I've been on the hunt for a perfect oversized denim shirt myself! Suppose I'll have to start looking again!

    Thanks so much for your kind words on my latest post – I'm so glad that you love the pictures on my instagram! And I didn't know you'll be coming to the States – whereabouts will you be? If you're ever in the Washington, DC area, please let me know and maybe we can meet up? It'd be so much fun! :]

    Chambrays are definitely a closet must. Glad you found your perfect one! Oh and cute cheetah booties 🙂
