Outfit Post: Double Denim

Aug 18, 2014

If you know me, you know that I am always always late. Not egregiously late but always about five to ten minutes behind.

I know they say that people who are always late are disrespectful of other people’s time and every time I hear that I feel intensely bad while making a promise to start being on time. But I’m one of those people who tries to cram in as much stuff as possible into every single minute of the day (I can clean this up/send this email/run this errand really quick). Why this random confession?

Well school, if you can call pre-school that, starts tomorrow and I’m vowing to make this year the one where my kid isn’t always one of the last ones in the carpool line. If I can start the day being on time, I feel like I can continue it through the day. Wish me luck.

The number one reason I’m running late in the mornings these days is the daily challenge of finding something to wear that both fits and looks mildly presentable. That’s why I tend to stick with the same silhouette and the same basics on the regular because they work.

This Canadian tuxedo is a combination of standards for me. And while I doubt I will be rocking the denim on denim look on the regular, it’s a nice alternative in the weekly rotation.

    LOVING your take on the Canadian tuxedo. The shoes are pretty amazing, too.

    I tend to be a few minutes late here or there for the same reason, but the difference with me, is I get totally stressed about being late…but I should get over that 🙂
