LBD, Denim Jacket+Floral Scarf and 22 ways I have Worn my Denim Jacket.

Today's Outfit was from a week before we left for Vacation. Between being very busy in general and our 9-day vacation I haven't been able to post it yet. But it is perfect for today because the Third Thursday Threads Link-up with Bri Marie is all about the Denim Jacket and boy do I love mine. You also get to see my gorgeous Vivian, today. Thank you for the well wishes on her, from yesterday's post.
I have purchased my Denim Jacket at a thrift store a little over a year ago. It was brand-new. It is by H&M. As you will see from my collages below, I have worn it a ton, for all 4 seasons. I am showing you today all 22 ways (that I have taken photos for/documented my denim jacket). I have worn it at least 6-10 times when it wasn't photographed. Since it was 10 bucks, the cost per wear is about 30 cents, by now. This time around I styled it for teaching with a sleeveless shirt-style LBD, my Silky Floral Scarf (in red/orange flowers) and my Faux Alligator Brown Slip-on Sneakers. It was a chilly Spring day and rainy too, as you can tell Vivian is wearing a Sweater Dress and Tights. This is one of my Favorite Sweater Dresses she owns and I found this one at Wal Mart. Actually Wal Mart has very cute things for babies and young kids. Do you ever shop for yourself or your kids at Wal Mart? And secondly, what are some ways you have styled a Denim Jacket? A Dark-Wash Blue Denim Jacket and a White Denim Jacket are on my wish-list to add to my closet, hopefully this year.
That face - how much I love this gorgeous face!!

OK, so I dug up the blog and so far there are 23 ways (just from the last couple pf years), that I have documented my Denim Jacket on the blog. There are 22 outfits total from both collages (including today's) but I forgot to include my most recent look over the Hot Pink Sheath. I grouped them into Spring+Summer Outfits and Fall+Winter Outfits.
My favorite way to style a Denim Jacket for Sping/Summer is over any of these 5 types of dresses: a LBD, a Floral Dress, a Striped Dress, a Maxi Dress and a White Lace or Crochet Dress. I have tried at least one of each of these looks, before. I also like to layer or add on a silky floral scarf for the warm months in an outfit using my denim jacket.

While for Fall/Winter I love pairing my Denim Jacket with more Denim on the bottom (either blue or black skinny jeans). I also love it with a pencil skirt with tights and a turtleneck. For the cold months, a lot of times I like to add Leopard to my Denim Jacket Outfit. What are some of your favorites from my outfits above?
