Denim Jackets are COOL again and I’m totally wishing that I saved that jean jacket I made with patches back in grade school… Do you guys know what I’m talking about? Along with those shorts that I cut from an old pair of denim every summer out in Montauk with the help of my MOM. In all seriousness, I needed a casual light jacket for a day-time event a few weekends ago and when I looked in my closet I realized I was SOL. Luckily, one of my best friends lives down the hall. She lent me her denim jacket from Madewell & explained that Jean Jackets were cool again and I should probably know that considering I’m a blogger. I wasn’t HOT to the idea at first but I ended up wearing her jacket all weekend long and quickly realized that I needed to invest in my own. Luckily, there are many cute styles out right now in a variety of prices that I didn’t have any problem finding some major style STEALS. You can find the jacket I’m wearing in the images above at your local Zara. For an almost identical option: here & I’m thinking about investing in this oversized style because it’s currently 25% off at Bloomingdales. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite SPLURGE VS STEAL OPTIONS below plus a full round-up at the bottom of this POST!
A quick thing on my WHITE EYELET TOP: I can’t resist a white top (I really have to many and they all tend to look very similar) but what is better then white on white in the summer! I love the detailing of the particular one I’m wearing (another Zara find) I actually bought two versions of it). Check out some of my favorite eyelet options here, here & here
p.s. if you are still looking for a Mother’s Day Gift or just for a little something to treat yourself this monogrammed commuter clutch or this striped pouch from Mark & Graham is super cute and you can still get it in time for Sunday! Check out my full Mother’s Day Gift Guide!
If you don’t mind splurging then definitely check out the denim jacket section on the SHOPBOP site. For a splurge, my favorite oversized option: here (only a few sizes left) I’m also really into this jacket and the white floral embroidery is reminding me of my patch-work days. You can’t go wrong with a denim jacket from Levi. I’m a fan of the boyfriend style & the price points are still very reasonable. This particular version is $90 and currently eligible for up to 25% off.
Madewell has a great assortment of oversize & shrunken denim jackets in lots of washes. This jacket is similar to the one I’m wearing in that it’s cropped & has a boxy fit. And if I’m talking about Steals, you can’t beat Target with this $30 style & H&M with this $34 style. I am also really liking this distressed look (and it’s under $50)
How do we feel about the denim Vest? I’m into it…if you are a Bruce Springsteen fan I’m sure you’re on my page as well. Check out this option… this short overall style is kinda cool as well and its only $35 dollars.
We can’t forget about the BABES! Rosie was given an adorable princess denim jacket from the GAP last year. It’s no longer in stock but check out this “New York” version for a boy & this floral option for a girl. AND How cute is this Matching momma: here& babe:hereSET
