Three Ways to Wear a Denim Jacket This Spring

I always look forward to Claire from Fashion+Feathers' fun fashion posts! Her outfits are both beautiful and practical. I am so excited to have her on the blog today sharing three ways to wear a denim jacket this spring! Take it away, Claire!

What up people?! I'm Claire and I blog over at Fashion + Feathers. While Olya is off gallivanting in California {that's my dream trip, by the way} I thought it would be fun to say hello! My go-to blogging topic is fashion {obvious, right?} but I also like to throw an easy recipe in the rotation or an occasional DIY project.

I recently opened an Etsy shop {The Studio} where I sell some gold foil prints, a graphic tee and a phone case. You should check that out.

My favorite thing that I blog is the two ways to wear series. Because if it doesn't serve multiple functions in my closet, it probably isn't in there. Today, I'm doing you one better - here's three ways to wear the denim jacket this Spring!

Around this time last year, my friend Katrina was wearing her denim jacket all the time so I decided I needed one, too. You know, one of those impromptu purchases and I had to have the jacket that night. So I found it at JC Penney's for $50. Gulp. For a teacher and a self-proclaimed deal finder, that's a lot of money. I stood in the store and thought of so many different outfits I could wear it with. That, and the fact that I loved the wash - not too light, not too dark.

So I grabbed it - not sure whether to feel guilty or excited. When the cashier scanned it, it came up 50% off. #score

But I had no idea I would wear it as much as I do. And for Spring? It's absolutely perfect because you can literally throw it on over whatever you want! Here are some of my favorite looks.

I loved wearing this romper last summer and you'll find me throwing it on all the time, this summer too! {Side note, it is not warm enough for this outfit in North Carolina yet. But if we're talking Spring, I knew I had to bring at least one pair of shorts into the look. You're welcome for freezing my butt off!}

I'm such a big fan of white denim with basically anything. It's the perfect fresh look for Spring and I love pairing the denim jacket with it.

This maxi skirt is technically a halter-top maxi dress - but I like to put a black shirt over it so I can wear it to work and fun places like that. I'm seriously obsessed with the large print on this skirt. Well, that and I basically only wear neutrals.

The moral of this story is, even if the jacket had been $50, it would have been worth it. I wear it to work, to church, out with friends, when I run errands. I wear it in all seasons and with all types of clothes. In other words, what did I wear before I had this thing? #noidea

  1. Now I need a fun romper, denim jacket, maxi dress/skirt, and of course black skinnies! Oh and to go on that dream trip to CA! Hello land of wine!!!! Have fun Olya, and great post Claire!

  2. Great looks! I love finding new ways to wear the same piece, and a denim jacket is definitely a spring staple for me. I can't wait until it warms up enough to start wearing mine. And props to you for freezing your butt off in the romper, you go girl!

  3. love all these looks! the denim jacket is something i bought thinking i would wear it (so many ways! pinterest!) but i rarely do. oh well, you live and learn!

  4. I love that jean jacket! If I liked the one I have now, I would probably wear it a lot more. That one is nice and fitted, so it looks great!

  6. I love these looks! Jean jackets are so versatile!

  7. It looks so pretty with the teal shirt!

  8. A French company coming up along with a beautiful fashionable line of ready to wear apparel from both men and women is an obvious buzzword. This company for several years has built a label for itself by manufacturing apparel for rugby players. chelsea and walker bloomingdales
