It’s just the day after Labor Day, so I know real fall temperatures are still a distant dream for many of us. Then again, the afternoon we shot these photos the temperature was a sweet 68 degrees Fahrenheit. So there’s no time like the present to start thinking about what we’ll wear for those early fall days, especially when the temps are a little up and down. To that end today I’m styling a denim skirt two ways for early fall.

I’ve mentioned in recent posts that I’ll be sharing more outfits with repeat items in future posts. I think it’s important that I share multiple ways to wear the garments I’m adding to my own closet. Plus, denim skirts are so very hot this year, they’re deserving of our attention. I did style the J.Crew denim skirt in this previous post with a t-shirt and cashmere sweater. Be sure to check that post out if you missed it. That skirt is sold out right now, but I’ve seen them restock it before, so maybe they will again.
Today I’m sharing a denim skirt (also here) by Rails and it features the deconstruction blue jeans look. The midi-length denim skirts are the ones really trending right now, and I’ve noticed that they all sell out super fast. I bought this one the minute I saw it for that reason, and later purchased the one from J.Crew. I have a size 29 in the J.Crew skirt, but I wear a size 30 in this one comfortably.
For the first look I styled the denim skirt with a simple, oversized white button-up shirt (and here) from Citizens of Humanity. As much as I love my Frank & Eileen shirts, this Citizens of Humanity shirt is my favorite for one big reason: it features buttons up the sleeve with which you can button the cuff to the sleeve for a secured “roll-up.” Ingenious! It’s very comfortable and on trend, too, of course. And this is such an easy way to style your favorite denim skirt.
I completed that look with my light sand colored suede booties that I purchased in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. They’ll be great with jeans, but these light colored booties are perfect for dresses and skirts, too. They run true to size.
Next up I styled the denim skirt with a simple graphic tee and sneakers. You’re probably going to get sick of me saying this, but I saw hundreds of women in England wearing dresses and skirts with their sneakers and they looked amazing.
My light sand colored On sneakers are great with this look. And I love that I can just slip them on and off. My t-shirt is sold out, but any graphic tee in your collection would work just as nicely here.
You may have noticed that I did add my cognac colored belt to both outfits. Remember, thinner belts are coming back in style this year. And I’m a fan. If you need a jacket with your denim skirt, reach for a moto jacket or utility jacket.
My utility jacket is low in inventory and size options, but it’s a good one. But here I found you a similar option and another option. The good thing about wearing an army or olive green utility jacket is that you don’t need to feel compelled to match it to your top or anything else in your outfit. Nothing here exactly matches, but it all “goes together” really nicely, creating a decidedly casual vibe.
I completed that outfit with a tote I purchased last spring from M.Gemi. I haven’t used it a lot so far, but I think I’ll pull it out and carry it more this fall because I’m really crushing on this color for accessories.
So those are two fun ways to style your midi length denim skirt for the early fall. If you’d like even more style inspiration for denim skirts, let me know in the comments. Thanks so much for dropping in today!

Blessed for My Day
The longer I walk with the Lord the more I am learning that God always has my best interest at heart. And because He is good, I can trust Him to always lead me in the best path and never to lead me astray. When I lean into Him, I can dwell in safety and I find rest for my soul…even if things appear uncertain around me. But when I try to figure out next steps on my own, I revert to feelings of insecurity and fear.
Let’s choose to trust the Lord today. Let’s remember that He paid a high price for us and He will not lead us astray. In big decisions and small moments, let’s turn to Him for guidance and trust that He knows what is best. And let’s take a deep breath, let it out slowly and rest in His provision.
This is what the Lord says, He who is your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to benefit, Who leads you in the way you should go.” ~ Isaiah 48:17
