I have really jumped on this denim bandwagon it seems. Not only do I wear it shirt-style, but I've accumulated not one, but two denim jackets since I've lived in the mid-west. TWO! Who would have thunk-it? Certainly not me. Somewhere over California right now pigs are flying. But you know what? That's ok. There's no rules in fashion and there's no rules saying we can't all try news things sometimes, even if we thought we'd never put a denim anything on above the waist again.
Case in point:
Perfect Fit Stripe Boatneck Tee-J Crew (from a few years ago)
Mossimo Skinny Cords-Target
Jessica Simpson "Lex" Flat-Nordstrom (last year)
Mixed Spectra Necklace-Anthropologie
Turquoise Earrings-Stella & Dot
I found this denim jacket while browsing J Crew Factory and LOVED how soft it was. It's a lighter denim color, much lighter than my Gap dark denim jacket. It ran a bit big so I took it in an XXS. It's the perfect cropped light-weight jacket to throw on over a tee when the weather isn't too cold and looks great with colored jeans or cords. I got a great deal on it with the sale that was going on so it was just too good to pass up.
So the moral of the story is never say never. Did I think I'd own and now wear neon denim, booties or denim jackets? NO way. But I do. And I like it. =)
Do you now wear any styles you swore you'd never wear? Do tell!
