Even though I don’t always wear every single piece I purchase just as soon as I bring it home – I think it’s kind of nice to have a few brand new things tucked away to “discover” when I’m feeling a little uninspired in the wardrobe department – most of my shopping finds definitely do go into immediate outfit rotation…and this seriously cool jean jacket was no exception!!
All my regular visitors know by now that I have a bit of a “problem” when it comes to buying jeans (I can’t seem to say no!) but it’s been a while since I’ve added a denim jacket to my collection. Robin and I went to the mall after work on Thursday to properly usher in the start of the Easter long weekend (teehee!) and when I showed him this distressed and pearl-embellished number at Forever 21?? He gave it an unequivocal thumbs down.
Sometimes I’ll put a piece back on the rack when my hubby tells me he doesn’t like it; usually because I’m kind of “on the fence” about it myself. But this jacket was just the sort of thing I’m always looking out for – an everyday basic with an edgy twist. The pearl beading, raw hem, and cropped silhouette make it way different from a classic jean jacket; it’s truly a fashion item rather than the workwear piece that the average guy is familiar with…so I’m cutting Robin some slack for not “understanding” it!! 😉
I’m already looking forward to wearing this newest addition to my denim lineup with floaty bohemian dresses when the sunshine finally feels as warm as it looks; but in the meantime, my favourite striped skinnies and white patterned shirt gave me just a little more coverage against our still stubbornly chilly temperatures…without looking like “winter”. Oh man – is anyone else as anxious as I am to get summertime started already?!
