I'm definitely not a fashionista but I've learned a thing or two.

Or, this is my way of telling you about my new favorite wardrobe staple.  

The denim jacket. 

And, just to show you have much NOT a fashionista I am, I didn't even own one back in the 80's when they were first in style. 

But, I own two, now, and I love them.

And, I'm thrilled that it's been cool enough to wear them recently. 

They are super flattering and basically go with everything and work for all body types. 

They give that whole dressy-casual look which I love.  Looking pulled together enough to be well...pulled together.  But not so dressy that one looks overdressed or out of place. 

I got mine from ThredUp (if you are a first time buyer and click through my link you get $10 to spend and so do I!!!)

So, needless to say, one of my denim jackets showed up in today's What I Wore Sunday post!

This may be dorky, but I'm planning to wear my denim jackets all winter in lieu of a sweater or cardigan.  So, yes I would totally wear a jacket under a heavier jacket once it gets colder.   I never said I was a fashionista. And clearly I don't have a full-length mirror, because looking at this outfit, I'm not so sure I like the boots with it.   Probably should have taken the picture BEFORE we went out all day, instead of after getting home.

I still have a long way to  Which is why I'm still posting What I Wore Sunday.  Posting what I wear helps me figure it all out.  Thanks for reading!!

  1. You look lovely! I feel as if I can't pull off a jean jacket : -/. Happy Sunday!

  2. I wish it were cool enough in Las Vegas to wear boots! Alas, we are still having 100 degree heat :p Cute jacket!!

  3. You look great, and I think the boots look good w/ the outfit! I love denim jackets too! The only downside is that I don't like them with jeans. Denim on denim just doens't look right, at least not on me.

  4. I *only* owned a denim jacket back in the 90s, when they kind of were not cool anymore. Then again, I was a child, so maybe I get a pass? I love the color of that top; it makes the outfit pop.

    Also, your truncated post title at FLAP comes out as "fashionist," which reminds me of the episode of Friends where Joey leaves his little sister with Rachel as says, "I'll leave you two fash...ists to it!'

  5. I think the boots work fine! I'd maybe layer with leggings or dark tights for more contrast, since they're a similar shade to your skin? The jacket is perfect on you!

  6. I love to throw on a denim jacket - it always pulls a look together!

  7. I do love the jacket! I'm wishing it would ever cool down enough around here to wear a sweater! Maybe by Christmas...
