The Debut of the Denim Jacket.

I finally have a Denim Jacket in my closet and I found this H+M UK one at a thrift store. Now, let me explain. In the last 12 years or so I had purchased about 5 Denim Jackets in the States, from stores like Gap, Express & Esprit. None of them were typical. By "typical" I mean they weren't the usual, Classic Denim Jacket Style like the one today. I had a couple in this Style but one had many pieces of different silk fabrics patch-worked on the back, one had a flower embroided on the back, one was a White one with a High Collar, etc, etc. I got rid of almost all of them and when I visited my home in MI last Summer I couldn't find the other 2. I knew my closet was lacking just a regular, Classic Denim Jacket though. I loved that I scored this one for 10 bucks and it is the Perfect Color, a Light-to-Medium Wash. Now, I kind of want a Dark Wash one but we will see.

Anyway, this is the first Outfit I wore with the debut of the Denim Jacket. Last time I styled this Gray Sweater Dress topping it off with my Deep Red Corduroy Blazer that I did for a Style Swap. It ended up being My Most Favorite Outfit of February 2014. This time I wore it with the Denim Jacket, one of my newer Turquoise Necklaces, little Turquoise Rose Studs, I carried a little Turquoise Wallet (instead of a Clutch) to tie in the rest of the Jewelry, with my Black Bow Belt, Opaque Black Tights & Navy Little Pointy Booties. And what do you know today's Trend Spin Link-up with Laura+Erin is Denim. I quite like this Outfit: Chic yet Casual, Elegant and Put-together, Simple yet Trendy. What do you think? Do you own a Denim Jacket? How should I style it next?
