When Pigs Fly...

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
Ring-Forever 21

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!

  1. I've been passing up all the denim jackets I've seen lately, and I don't know why because they're SO CUTE! I guess I just feel like I wear jeans 4-5 days a week, and I wouldn't wear a denim jacket with them, so I'm afraid the jacket wouldn't get a lot of wear! But you styled it perfectly :)

  3. I ordered that jacket from the JCrew factory as well but it's on backorder until January :( It looks great on. I too cannot believe that I'm contemplating a denim jacket when I swore them off oh, 10 years ago!

    1. I'm so there with you about the skinnies...who would have thought they'd be all the rage now? That's why I now say never say never!

  5. Loving this outfit. It proves that denim and classic black+white stripes go with anything. A small dose of Mustard pairs well with anything, too. I love the pretty lavender color of your skinnies.

    I miss you on my page. Hope to see you soon, Jennie. =)


    Have a Great Weekend, Ada.

    1. Thanks so much! White denim jackets are something I've never owned. I would personally wear it more in the spring probably as opposed to the winter. I think it could look really cute with neon skinnies and sandals!!

  10. I love the jacket. You look so cute! I don't have a denim jacket. I haven't been able to find one. I thought it would be so easy to find one but it hasn't been!
