Denim jackets.

Rewind four months when I thought denim jackets sucked. I told myself that I would never ever jump on that bandwagon. It reminded me too much of the '90s and would just be tacky.

Well... you guys all changed my mind. All the bloggers out there so stylishly wearing their denim jackets. I couldn't help but lust after one for a couple months before I took the plunge and bought one for myself. When I tried it on, I wondered how I was so quick to judge. I love the cut and how it falls, along its ability to make any outfit casually put-together.

I can see myself wearing this baby out over the fall season. Next up: pairing it with a nice, big cozy scarf as the weather cools down.

What do you think of denim jackets?

  1. I love a good denim jacket. I've had mine for about 10 years now and I love pairing it for the early fall with light sweaters and scarves. Glad to have you on the bandwagon :)

  2. Love that jacket! Looks like a great cut. I was the same as you - and it didn't help that the one I had was boxy and unflattering. So then I chopped off the sleeves and now its my favourite thing! :)

    1. I'm sure it still looked good as a jacket, but I do love your diy denim vest :)

  3. I've always loved denim jackets. I personally never thought they went out of style. I've had mine for over a decade and I love it. The more you wear it, the more comfortable they get! Yours looks like it was a great buy!

  4. I have been searching for the perfect denim jacket since last fall, and can't seem to find one! Damn my long arms and broad shoulders. This one though...it's perfect for you! It's always so interesting when bloggers (myself included) try a trend they swore they'd NEVER do.

    1. Thanks! Yeah it's not super easy to find one that fits well. I had to go to a few stores first, but I was lucky that I could find one that was reasonably affordable.

  5. I kept my denim jacket from HS and I love it! It just goes with so many different pieces. I'm excited to wear it again in the fall when the weather cools down.

  6. I'm not completely over the 90s trauma yet, so I'm not jumpin on this one, haha. I did buy myself a pair og wide legged jeans, of which I also had a 90s trauma. I can't look at myself wearing them without beeing reminded of my 1998 wide legged beige cotton pants. HORRIBLE! x

  7. I want a denim jacket too! The problem is my height and everywhere they're cropped so short that it hits me in an awkward place. Any suggestions where to look?

    1. Hmm.. I went into a bunch of stores and I could only find denim jackets at Old Navy (sucked), American Eagle (too expensive) and Suzy Shier (the one I bought). You know Ottawa sucks for selection haha :P

  8. I had the same sentiment until I caved and bought a couple (dark) versions at Salvation Army. And now I'm in love! Your hair is so pretty with waves and pretty necklace.
