Chambray button-down top: KUT (from Black & Bold), skirt - Urban Outfitters, - shoes - Spring, purse - vintage, 
rings - H & M, sunglasses - Derek Cardigan Sun 7004 Birch c/o Clearly Contacts - WIN THEM HERE!

My inspiration:

I used to be hesitant about pairing denim with denim, otherwise known as wearing a "Canadian Tuxedo" because I thought I'd look like a cowgirl which is fine if I was a cowgirl but I'm not although I do ride horses from time to time at my brother's ranch but I digress. I found that if I paired two different shades of denim, mixed with non-denim accessories I wouldn't end up looking like this:

Denim on denim on denim on denim. What were they thinking?? 
Ahh, love was blind back then. (And so was their stylist.)

I love coming across fellow Canadian bloggers! And I love this denim-on-denim look, and who better to get inspiration from than Ashley Olsen. Her looks are always flawless. Um, the disaster that is Britney and Justin, not so much, haha.
