AsianCajuns said...

Oooo I really would love a denim playsuit. At the moment I make due with a denim mini by Hudson. Love the jacket!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Wendy-yes, a great style alternative to leather!

Hi asian cajuns-thanks so much!! A denim mini is spot on for summer!!

Ladies Who Lunch said...

I used to live in denim in my 20's... now I don't own any!!

Cate said...

hi sharon! i really love jeans, and is that harper's bazaar guide to all things denim some extra in the magazine harper's bazaar? if yes which issue? the one out now? (because i would totally get it)

and i would really like a denim vest for this summer.

*~The World is My Catwalk~* said...

that would have to be a denim Maxi Dress with a frilled hem-line :-)

I love your site and style!! Keep it up!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ladies who Lunch-I suppose its the phases we all go through-I'm still loving my denim one!!

Hi cate- I actually got these images online from Harpers-check my favourites and click on Harpers bazaar to get there-it is a few weeks old now. Yes, I got a vest (waistcoat) too, a Levis one!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi the world is my catwalk-thanks for stopping by my blog and for the lovely comment!!
Yes a denim maxi is effortlessly chic and never goes out of style-good choice!

wooooow i absolutely loooove the denim shoe boots towards the top of the post - gorgeously to die for! Anyone know where i could get a pair? Not forgetting i am on a students budget!!? lol! great post sharon x

Make Do & Mend said...

I've cut down my Gap denim skirt to the perfect short length but not a mini. I'm slowly but surely fraying it and so far I've worn it loads!
Does require self tan for legs to get away with it.

ellie said...

Cool. Never seen boots like that in deninum. Got have a little denium through out the year.

Thanks for reading, too.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi owner of this space!! Maybe you could try Ebay!! Thanks so much for your comment!

Hi kate-yes, this is a great idea-I have an oasis denim mini (for house and beach!) and my longer faded Diesel denim skirt is for anywhere!!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ellie-yes denim is a must all year round really and the boots are unusual, aren't they!!

Nadine said...

I love denim shorts in summer - so perfect and comfortable.

p said...

i haven't been wearing denim-blue jeans for more than a year but i agree that other denim items are absolutely delectable. i found an old denim vest lying around the house the other day which i'm going to wear soon ..

apart from that, it's the denim jacket that i love. esp in a dark denim wash. i think they are brilliant.

p.s. the denim boots are to-die-for. now, i'd love yet another pair of boots!

bear said...

i cant believe all the denim on denim!

Siljesfashion said...

Love denim, and I was going to do a post on it this week!! Haha, great minds think alike. They are having a sale at shopbob at sooo many great styles, going insane. Love the boots!

atelier said...

I love my denim jacket (I did a post on it a while ago), I recover it from 4 season ago.. still looks like new, and this summer denim jacket (as yours) is a must.

SOMETHING_PICASSO said...

LOVE the collages and that jean jacket is very flattering on you.

I recently dug out an old Levis boy jeans jacket myself and I plan on creating some simple outfits with it

Danz said...

Hey Sharon, I'm really loving all the light wash denim I've been seeing lately. So fresh for summer! Oh and those denim shoe boots are crazy hot!

Secretista said...

Denim! Denim!! The denim jacket is lovely!

angeline said...

so far, i've got a denim vest

cupcakes and cashmere said...

i've been tempted by several non-jean, denim items that i've come across, but knowing that this trend might not be around too much longer, i'm not willing to spend too much. maybe i'll be on the look out for something at the flea market this weekend? oh and i also came across a denim bracelet at forever 21, which was kind of a fun idea :)

Nay'Chelle said...

Nice jacket! I have this denim belt that my little sister used to have tha I really like.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Nadine-yes a great item to have in the wardrobe!!

Hi p-I agree, denim is soo versatile and BTW, the denim boots are by Christopher Kane-they rock!!

Hi bear-yes, denim is hot!!

Hi Silje-I would love to see your post on denim too! The boots are by Christopher Kane!

Hi atelier-great minds think alike-I love my denim jacket too!!

Hi something picasso-thanks and would love to see this levi's jacket on!!

Hi danz-yes i'm sure faded denim is just in for summer, but I love it anyway!! The boots are by Christopher Kane.

Hi secretista-thanks so much-yes, denim is fabulous!!

Hi angeline-thanks so much for stopping by my blog-the vest is a good start!!

Hi cupcakes and cashmere-i agree that faded denim maybe in just for summer, but trends always come back again, so it's worth storing any stuff for when the trend resurfaces!!

Hi nay'chelle-that sounds fabulous!!

On Track said...

Lovely collages, it has really inspired me to go looking for some cute denim. I am loving your sandals you are wearing in your picture, they would go well with so many pieces :D

Sharon Rose said...

yiqin; said...

I really want a pair of denim cut offs & romper!!! & those denim boots are amazing.

Times of Glory said...

Seriously Sharon Rose, I find denim gets more and more sophiscated! They look super cool! When you team soft floral with denim jacket, you look so pretty and casually chic! I love that look! You made me want a new denum jacket xxxxxx

Marte said...

The denim Mulberry bag is sooo cool!

MadameDior said...

I usually don't wear jeans in summer cause it's too hot, but this year I'm still wearing sweater so... I should give a try to skinny denim jackets and feminine dresses combo.

Fashionable Obsessions said...

I love the denim romper too like everyone else. So cute. :-)

Wendy said...

My favorite non-jeans denim piece would have to be a cute denim romper (too bad I don't own one yet). Next to that, a good jacket like the one you have on.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi wendy-hope you find both of these-lovely choices for summer!!
