Jean Jacket Junkie

Ever since I spotted this skirt (featured in this post), I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect floral a-line skirt! Although this skirt doesn’t make my heart patter like the Red Valentino version, it’s definitely a favorite since it is under $20! I obviously bought both colors. 🙂

I styled my pleated floral skirt with a casual tee and a denim jacket for work. I kept my accessories bright and my flats neutral to balance out all of the color. While I kept my jean jacket on at the office, you could easily remove the jacket and add some strappy sandals for post-work and weekend festivities.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of my jean jacket when the temperatures begin to rise! It’s a transitional wardrobe staple and lends the perfect casual touch. A juxtaposition must!

      Same!! I got rid of my ol’ A&F jean jacket a few years ago but finally got this one earlier this year when Gap was running a 30% off promo.

      Note to self: hold on to things.

    I just replace my old jean jacket with a more fitted, modern version and I can’t get enough of it. You’re absolutely right: it’s the perfect casual layering piece!

    So adorable!

    This may be an odd question but, how tall are you? I was looking at the skirt online (to buy) and it looks shorter then it does on you. I was wondering so I could figure out if I want the skirt.

      Hi Lilly,

      I’m only 5’5”, but I have long legs. I bought a Medium so it would be a bit longer and appropriate for the office!

    I wear my denim jacket constantly during this in between season. I love that color Rebecca Minkoff bag you have. Is that this season?

      I just have the straps doubled up! Unclip the chain from the bag, loop it through the hole and attach it to the top of the strap near the leather part. 🙂
