Reworking the Denim Shirt for Fall

Can you believe that today is the last day of our Moms Do Fall Fashion series?! We’ve had such a blast teaming up with some of our favorite style influencers to bring you loads of fall outfit ideas and today is no different. We’re concluding our series with the lovely Courtney from The Chirping Moms and Ashley from I Love You More than Carrots, so make sure you check out her take on a mom’s fall style! But first…let’s talk about how to style the denim shirt for fall.

Moms Do Fall Fashion

Now a couple weeks back Megan showed you how she’s wearing a denim shirt for her fall looks…and now it’s my turn. We actually both chose the J. Jill Indigo Tunic and while she went for a decidedly more dressed up look by adding peep toe booties to her denim shirt and leggings combo, I, on the other hand, went the casual route.

On most fall days if I’m not rockin’ boyfriend jeans and skinnies, you’ll probably find me in leggings. That and a comfy shirt or tunic is basically my mommy uniform…but I’m not talking about the bad oversized tee/leggings combo we all remember from our youth. No,no…Just because you’re comfortable doesn’t mean you can’t still be chic. Simply add a fun statement necklace and a pair of comfy mocs, like my Rockport pair, to the denim shirt you pick for fall and you’re ready to take on the day in comfort AND style!

So, that’s how I’m reworking my denim shirt for fall…For even more fall fashion inspiration head over to The Chirping Moms and I Love You More than Carrots, and in case you missed them yesterday, Baby Shopaholic and Very Busy Mama shared their takes on lace and layers!

    I love your shirt. I used to wear one back “in the day” as we older people say. It’s super cute and comfy. Loving the loafers.

    I own one denim shirt and I love it. It is definitely a shirt that can’t go out of my opinion.

    I adore everything about this outfit. It’s chic, yet comfy. I’ve been on the hunt for a cute denim shirt, but haven’t found one I like yet. But this look has inspired me to restart my hunt.

    Denim shirt and leggings is one of my favorite outfits for fall and then I throw on either a pair of boots or booties and call it a day!
