My spring jacket series continues with a denim jacket trucker style! I already owned a dark blue cropped denim jacket from Express (first shown in THIS POST) when I saw this baby hanging on a clearance rack for only around $7.00. My first thought was "Do I really need another denim jacket?", but the color, wash, and style was so completely different than the one I already owned I said "YES!". Plus, it was a Levi denim jacket, what's not to love?
First I have to admit I was inspired for this outfit, by Tricia's look on Lookbook. I would have never thought of combining silver with white until seeing this outfit. Doesn't she look amazing?
I altered the look slightly choosing flats over heels and white skinny jeans without the distressing. I also left my shirt completely un-tucked.
I think this outfit is a great example of how older women can be inspired by younger women in fashion. We don't have to wear completely different clothes than our younger counterparts; we can just adapt them to suit our body types and preferences.
My metallic silver tee shirt is old (The Gap, last shown HERE and HERE) and I just purchased this pretty silver diamond necklace from Burlington Coat Factory.
I was so happy to have this pretty magnolia tree to stand in front of for pictures! My yard is coming to life ladies! The grass is turning green, spring bulbs are blooming, and the first flowering tree bloomed. Yeah, spring is finally here! I'll share more pictures of my spring garden this Sunday!
Well, enough about flowers, this is a fashion post after all...onto the bag. The handbag was a gift from my daughter for my birthday last November. It is lavender/periwinkle blue on one side, and beige on the other. Isn't it pretty? It's from Nine West.
Here is the lavender/periwinkle blue side:
And here is the beige side:
I just love the structure and colors of this bag and hope to get a lot of use out of it this spring.
For a trucker style jacket, I think this coat has a lot of shape to it and is very flattering. The seams curve in to the waist line, not just straight down. I also like that the pockets are high above the bust line.
I love the slightly distressed look to the material too...it's a pretty, soft wash which makes the trucker style more feminine.
Have a Great Day! Amy
