Ok, that title is pretty bad, but I couldn’t think of anything witty! I recently purchased one of a girl’s wardrobe essentials after a long search: a denim jacket! I hit up Old Navy last week in search of an affordable option. I was in luck, the San Francisco flagship store is always well-stocked, but it was like a denim explosion when I walked in the store. They had all different kinds of washes, I really wanted a dark denim jacket, but I wasn’t able to find my size. I did, however, find the next darkest wash, “dark worn.” To my surprise, the XXL was too big (for my shoulders at least), so I got the XL and went on my merry way.  I’ve pretty much been wearing it every day since I got it, and it really goes with everything! That’s why I wanted to do this post, to show how versatile a denim jacket can be!

First up, casual/weekend outfit.

Outfit Details:
Purple Print Dress – Nordstrom (Similar style here)
Denim Jacket – Old Navy (buy me!)
Orange Leather purse – Linnea Pelle (Similar style here)
Black and gold sandals – Target
Feather earrings – Forever 21
Necklace – Fab
Chunky clear bracelet – Marc by Marc Jacobs (Similar style here)

Denim jackets are okay for the work place, too! I would wear it on your casual day if your office has a dress code, or any day if you work in San Francisco (ha!).

Outfit Details:
Floral high-low top – Xhiliration by Target (available here)
Teal trousers – Mossimo by Target (Similar style here)
T-strap Mary Janes – Pikolino (Similar Style here)

This can easily be dressed up with blazer or a cardigan if the denim jacket is too casual for your office.

Now onto evening! I just switched out my accessories, bottoms and added a brighter lip.

There you have it! Denim three ways. If the lighter wash doesn’t work for you, go for the dark denim. That wash has a lot more polish to it, so you could wear it more often in a professional setting.

Are there any pieces you have problems working into your wardrobe? If you have a piece you have but aren’t sure how to wear it, I would love to help. Just shoot me an email!
