Zero to Sixty: cropped jean jacket with a classic grey jersey tank and slouchy houndstooth trousers

I’ve kind of gone from “0 to 60” when it comes to wearing denim jackets lately…wouldn’t you say, dear readers?? 😉

After not styling one for ages, I’d recently invested in this distressed-and-pearl-embellished version – which you saw for the very first time just last week with striped skinny jeans and open-toed wedge heels.  And on Monday, I decided to take my oversized jean jacket (which I hadn’t worn in almost a whole year prior to that) out-and-about with a tunic sweater and faux-leather leggings.

Today I’m back in my little pearly number again…which makes three denim jacket ensembles in a row.  Whew!!  I guess I’m more than just a “skinnies” girl, after all!!  This edgy topper is getting a sizeable chunk of my denim love right now, I have to admit; I pretty much want to wear it with everything!!

This time I did my cropped jean jacket with a classic grey jersey tank and slouchy houndstooth trousers; then added lace-up booties and a flat-top fedora for good measure.  And none of my visitors still believe that old wives’ tale about not wearing black with brown, I hope…??  Because I can’t imagine a more perfect final touch for this cowgirl-inspired look than my tasselled pony-hair bag. 😁

If only – and I’m so sorry if I sound like a broken record! – our darn Vancouver weather would finally play along.  It was a ridiculously cold and windy photoshoot again this afternoon…even though Robin and I tried to find a bit of shelter behind this old airplane hangar.  You’d better believe that our next stop was Starbucks for a warmup drink!!

I’m seriously considering my new little jean jacket as a take-along when I go to Toronto to visit my parents next month; but since the weather there is even worse than our own (omg – they had another snowfall only a week ago!) I think I’d better wait a while longer before I make any decisions about what to pack!!

    I love denim in about every iteration possible so I totally get your denim jacket obsession. You are going to have so much fun with thus one all summer, I think. I know you can pair this beautifully with sundresses on cool mornings and evenings. Can’t wait to see.

    But you may have to forego this piece for Toronto. Personally, I always struggle to pack enough warm clothing when I visit Seattle. I forget how it feels when it’s 20-40 degrees colder. I think my trip up there last week was the very first time I didn’t mess this up! (Funny story: my dear husband made fun of me for what I took with me—until we got there and he was underdressed and cold the whole time!)
