It’s a myth that you can never wear denim on denim.  As long as the two denims are not the same hue, you will be perfectly stylish.  Combine the classic white button-down with the trendy mom jeansplatform sandals, and brightly-colored cross-body bag, and you have the perfect ensemble!

5. Blue Floral Sundress and Half-Moon Straw Bag
