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. πŸ™‚

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 jacketΒ 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. πŸ™‚
