dreaming of denim

as i get more and more excited for fall weather and fashion, the words "transition piece" repeatedly pop up in my head. a true transition piece, something that works for both summer and fall weather, is actually harder to come by than you would think (especially when you remember how irritating autumn's unpredictable temperatures can be).

a denim shirt is one of these miracle pieces. it looks equally chic with white shorts, black skinny pants, or a sequined mini skirt; converse low-tops, embellished flats, or platform heels; piled-on jewelry, minimalist streamlining, or boyish flair. i personally love pairing my denim shirt (from j.crew's 2007 summer collection) with the most unexpected pieces, like a tight black pencil skirt, oversized jewels and funky sunglasses:

{on liz: j.crew denim shirt [similar version here], nordstrom bp skirt, david yurman silver-and-gold chain bracelet, j.crew rose-gold chain bracelet, j.crew gemstone bracelet [similar version here], burberry stainless steel bracelet watch, urban outfitters braided fabric bracelet [similar version here], h&m cheetah-print sunglasses}

get creative!
