Top Bold Denim Jacket Picks

When it comes to denim - color, fringe, and cool buttons are just a few of the things I'm seeing in my future. We've been seeing the denim with patches trend for a while now (and, yes, I am still into it) but I want to play MORE!

Cold Weather Uniform

Streamline your life, and your wardrobe, when you can. This is my advice to you. Clutter doesn't bring anyone legitimate joy. It weighs us down and frankly makes things more complicated than they have to be. I often have trouble pairing down my closet in the summer.

Blue Velvet

Lana once wrote a song about a girl who wore blue velvet. She croons on about the velvet that was bluer than the night and the girl's eyes, which were also bluer than the velvet she wore. I've always loved the song. Call it self-indulgence, but I connected to it. To me, the song was about me. 

Black & Yellow

It's been a long time since I last shared an outfit on my blog. Since then, a lot has happened. I'm currently recovering from my time as a red head with some strawberry blonde locks. It's gotten cold AF. Several tasty new restaurants have opened downtown. I've put up the Christmas tree and I'm getting ready to take it down. I've turned 27, and I'm looking to the New Year with eyes full of fun times and adventure. 

Flower Power.

I love this simple outfit because the blue flowers in the top play so well with the color of the denim. The throwback detail at the bottom of these jeans is perfect and really helps to add something extra to a simple look.

Palms & patchwork.

So I've been watching a lot of Arrested Development lately. This skirt gives me serious Lindsay Bluth vibes, and I've decided I'm ok with that - at least for now. I'm only watching season one...

Lace + Embroidery. Forever. For always.

Since the beginning of 2017, I have talked a lot about only buying items for my closet that I will always love - or at least that I can always see myself loving. Tops and skirts like this fall into that category. I like what I like. If a bell sleeve is on every shelf or not, the look will always have a place in my heart (many people probably already know that). This handbag is the same. IRL, I carry this bag EVERY DAY.

Brooches forever.

I know what you're thinking. "My grandmother wears brooches." Yeah, yeah, yeah. Honestly, during the advent of embellishments, embroidery, and patches it seems like a natural time to appreciate what a nice little collection of brooches can bring to the table. Whether they're vintage or not, sometimes a little extra glitz is exactly what an outfit needs. Full disclosure: these brooches are from my local craft store, but every time I wear them I get SO many compliments. You'd never know they cost less than $10 collectively. I love a look for less.  

Silk bomber jackets are life.

Packing for me is so hard. I think about it so far in advance, but I can never act on choosing an outfit or make any actual decisions. You know, decisions. Those tricky things everyone hates making. I'm one of those people too. Where do you want to eat? I don't know. 

Anyway. I'm getting ready to head up to New York with some of my girlfriends, and I honestly have no clue what to pack - such is life. I've been trying really hard lately to add things to my closet that I ALWAYS want to wear, but let's be honest - I can't see the future. 

What I'm wearing this week. | Denim skirts and dainty scarves.

When small square neck scarves started popping up in the accessories section on some of my favorite brand's websites I was super excited. I have always LOVED wearing a neck scarf. It nods back to a different era, one that I am a big fan of, and adds a little personality to an outfit. I am also a huge fan of a higher neckline, and adding a scarf to a blouse or dress where the neckline is lower gives me that same flattering effect.
