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.

First time ever I styled it with a Scarf also (my Taupe/Floral Triangle, Tassel Scarf) and mixed it with Purple (see the photo below). Today I also wore a Scarf with it and paired it with Purple. This Dress actually looks great styled with a Scarf over it. Here are 1 and 2 ways I have already styled this Dress, this Winter. This time I stayed within the Blue family and Pattern-mixed it with some Python Tights that I didn't want to regret any longer (last worn here), my Lavender+Baby Blue Paisley Scarf and even added…
