Embroidered denim, double denim

Embroidered jeans worn with pink statement sleeve jumper
Embroidered denim is having a moment, as is double denim. Fearing that I might look like a country and western singer, or at worse, a bit mutton, I thought I'd give it a go. The pretty embroidered jeans are from Marks and Spencer and already sold out, although there's a similar pair here. I wore the jeans first with a statement sleeve jumper from Lost Ink.

Next I paired the jeans with an embroidered shirt, also from Marks and Spencer. Now I really am getting into C&W territory. Yee ha.

Different ways to try floral embroidered denim for spring 2017 featured in Is This Mutton?

Double denim: embroidered jeans and embroidered shirt
Double floral denim was probably as bit too much so I tried the shirt with my flared jeans from Next, past season.

Preparation of the photography area

Before I took the pictures, there was a little prep to be done.  It's a glamorous life, being an all-purpose photographer / blogger / stylist! I had to scrub the bird feeders and brush up the grass.

What do you think of floral embroidered jeans / denim shirts?  Is it something you're doing or planning to do?

  1. Oh Gail I am in love with all the embroidery I am seeing. I have a few Johnny Was tops that have lots of embroidery that I just adore. Loving your blog and not following you on bloglovin! Peace! Cheryl

  2. I'm really liking the embroidery trend. But I'm loving the ruffled sleeve trend more.And yet to find the right length sleeve for my short arms! I think all of these looks are great on you Gail.

  3. I think the embroidery is wonderful! And I have always rather liked double-denim, so I think you look just fab. thanks for linking, xo

  7. I do love the embroidered trend and am tempted to get a pair of jeans myself. You look great in jeans and I really love the pink statement sleeved top, another on my wishlist! At least you have grass! here in the South, it can get very dry. I am ready for Spring though!

    1. I'll let you into a secret Jessica....it's fake grass! We've had it about five years now. Looks quite realistic!

  8. I am a sucker for embroidery on anything.

    I quite like your double denim outfits and I love that flouncy sleeved blouse. The pink is so soft and perfect for spring.

    I love that you shot yourself getting your "backdrop" ready for photos. Ha ha! The things we bloggers do...

    BTW...I totally thought the grass was real!


  9. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I like the pink with the light blue. Great look.

  10. Hi, I AM ADA. So glad I found your blog. I loathe Winter too even-though I like snow lol. I think that gorgeous rose blush top with the double-ruffled sleeves would be perfect for you to 'transfer' into Spring. I also love the double denim look. The embroidery of the top, is perfectly beautiful!

    I also welcome you to check out my blog and I would love for you to join my new linkup from this week. It is a special linkup too - a celebration. Welcome by!


    Thanks and enjoy the weekend!

  11. Hello, I'm in the UK too, and our weather is so 'normal' warmer on day and bloomin cold the next! I'm so looking forward to proper Spring to arrive. I saw a pair of jeans with embroidery over them, but neglected to by them. Now I can't remember when they were! Nice to link up with you. Jacqui

  12. I love embroidered denim...well any embellishment on denim really. I've customized an old denim jacket with patches, it's not quite finished yet but when it is I'll be wearing it on the blog!
