My First Denim Top

What I Wore:

Top & Jeggings: American Eagle
Necklace: Gifted
Headband: Forever 21
Sandals: Candie's for Kohl's
Leather Satchel: Oufi London

Besides the denim jacket I recall having as a teenager, I've never owned a denim top in my life. I know, this might be hard to believe for some of you! But while I was at American Eagle earlier this week I noticed this top and decided to I try it on. I fell in love with the soft cotton denim and how light weight it is compared to other denim tops that have more of a stiff fit. The light wash and cut-out on the back make it perfect for the season and can easily be styled and accessorized to create either an edgy or feminine look. My styling choice is quite obvious I think. Lace, pearls, and a red lip definitely scream girly. It's great having something new and different in my closet!

How do you feel about denim?

Very cute look! Love the red lip!
I just bought my first denim top too not too long ago from Forever21. They seem to be everywhere this season!

I love how you put all of this together with the lace and pearls. I'm pretty sure I don't own any denim tops either...just one denim jacket.

Wow, that shade of lipstick looks wonderful on you Jen! I don't own a denim top, but often wear my denim jacket as a top. I like your denim top, and for it to be a first one for you .. you chose well! xx/Madison :-)
