WIW: Denim on denim

Thanks to Angie this morning for helping me choose what to wear running errands!

Here's my denim shirt over gray jeans, with flair in lemon-lime :)

I think I like it - though I'm watching for a longer denim or chambray shirt, and I'm not sure that the shoes will pass the comfort-while-walking test.  (And the shoes look kinda frumpy too, don't they? - they may not be around long).  Forgive my wearing socks, I know bare feet would be better, but need them for warmth and comfort.

Suggestions for improvement?

Edit: From suggestions, unbuttoned another button on shirt and moved the necklace inside the shirt.  :)

    Fab! Have you tried wearing the necklace inside your shirt? Great colour palette here :)

    The shoes look fine to my eye. It's the socks worn with them that are making them feel frumpy. Have you tried knee-highs?

    Super cute!

    Angie, the necklace feels a bit like a clown collar when I wear it up on my neck  - maybe I'm just seeing things. 

    And I only have knee-highs in black so far - I'll try to pick up some in nude.  Thank you!

    Better with the necklace inside?  In the mirror, I thought the necklace looked blah against my skin, but in the pic, I think it probably looks okay.  What do you think?

    Oh! I much prefer it inside the shirt!  It makes your neck look long and lovely.  

    Great outfit!

    I agree - it's really cool with this necklace, inside the collar. Fab outfit, Amy!

    Okay, inside the collar it stays!  Thank you for the help!

    Love this on you Amiable!  I have a very similar necklace so we are jewelry almost-twins.

    love the pop of color the shoes provide!

    Really like this! I think the shoes are fine without socks.

    Nice follow through on the inspiration. I love those shoes and would totally wear them!
