Over the 12 years I have been with my husband (7 of them married), he has been schooled on fashion, whether he likes it or not.
This past weekend my parents were awesome enough to have a small family gathering at their house for us. I was heading out the door in the morning to meet a friend for breakfast and asked my husband to get me my denim jacket. As quickly as he opened his mouth to say “aren’t you going to be hot,” he stopped himself and said, “oh right, its an accessory.” (oh how I have taught him well!!)
Well duh. It is exactly that. An accessory. Very rarely…actually never, do I wear it as an actual jacket or coat to keep me warm. It is always, always, always an accessory. Plus, its been with me through thick and thin (literally) and my pregnant/not pregnant months!
So was I hot this weekend? Yes. Did I want to take the jacket off here and there? Totally. But it was part of the outfit!!It helped pull the whole look together, like the perfect necklace or a pair of awesome shoes! As I always say, “fashion before function.” I know…I’m weird 🙂

The next few pictutres show just how much I love a good denim jacket….you’ll see how much of a must have accessory I think it is…(even for my daughter!!)
And thats enough pictures of me….really.
I did a little shopping to find some really great denim jackets that you could add to your accessory closet!! My jacket is Gap Denim. LOVE it.

Last thing….as I was looking around in Old Navy a few weeks ago, I spotted a denim vest. Yep. A denim jacket without the sleeves. For some reason, I fell in love with it. BUT, I did restrain myself from buying it. I should have, because now I can’t find it in my size and its not online! Aaaaahhh!!
I did find a version at UO though…check it out 🙂

I am still not going to stop checking at Old Navy! Imagine the possibilities with this vest! I am just in love!
