on the daily / denim uniform

I know all about that Catholic-school, plaid skirt uniform life. Did it, didn't hate it. I was actually 100 p ok with wearing that pleated skirt and polo everyday. I had way more important things to think about at the crack of, "SH*T. Did I finish that algebra worksheet?!" I have carried the uniform mentality with me over the years, although I may have exchanged my plaid for great denim since the middle school days. Those mornings when I hit the snooze button one too many times and have exactly 2.3 minutes to get my half asleep butt out the door, I reach for my trusty denim. A canadian tux is always a win in my book (book?? I have a book?) No matter what the day brings, denim on denim is always comfortable and all kinds of cool girl (with minimal effort to boot.) In every article I've read over the years on the topic of denim on denim, pairing the shades on top and bottom are usually a no-no. Why?? I say, F THAT! If you're gonna do the damn thing, DO the damn thing. Wearing a canadian tuxedo gets you 100 points. Rocking the same shade head to toe? 1,000,000,000,000 points, and who doesn't want to be a winner?! Canadian tux in one shade, I dare you. 

I'm a very serious person, obviously.
