Cropped Denim Jacket

I'm continuing  my "Spring Jacket" series with a denim jacket that you have probably seen over and over again because I've been wearing it for three years!  In fact, this jacket was worn in my very first fashion post back in 2013 in this post HERE.

For those of you new to this series, I decided to showcase all of my spring and fall weather type jackets since I had so many of them.  Most of them I picked up at amazing deals.  

Here's a list of the jackets I've shown so far:

And today's jacket is the Cropped Denim Jacket!

I wore this jacket on Saturday when my husband went to Stillwater, MN to do some antiquing.  It was a cool day, in the sixties, and windy (as you could have probably guessed by most of the pictures).

Because we would be doing a lot of walking, I used my backpack purse (old, Kmart), to carry a water bottle, snacks, and all the usual stuff that goes in my purse.

Though it was a beautiful day, the wind was a bit nippy so I solved that problem by wearing a scarf.

My top is an old tank top from Express.  I've shown it you before HERE and HERE.  It has sequins on it so it's so pretty and sparkly in real life.

The tank top is so short, sometimes I think of it more as a shrug than a jacket.  It actually is the perfect jacket to wear in the summer over a sundress or tank top when you need some extra protection from the air conditioning or a cool evening.

Because I had a scarf on, and my hair covers my ears, the only jewelry I wore was a big gold bracelet.

Although I love these shoes, they weren't my first pick to wear with this outfit.  I wanted to wear a pump, but I went with these because I knew we would be walking all day and they are so comfortable.  They are from Sears (old).

The floral shirt has a solid black back.  The jeans are also from Express (super old).

I just read today on another blog that wearing a cropped jacket with a long top makes you look thinner.   I never thought of that before, but I guess I would agree.

I think I have about four more spring jackets I haven't shown you yet in this series.  We will see if I get through them all.  I said when I started this that I would do it only until the weather warms up.  Of course, I have lots of fall jackets too...but I will wait till fall to begin that series!

Have a Great Day!  Amy
