constant search -- denim jacket.


Gorjana Viceroy Bracelet 
www.shopbop.com; $48
I'm incredibly drawn to super delicate jewelry for spring.  It's so light and feminine, and even the tiniest touch adds to a look beautifully.  The sweet little chain bracelet from Gorjana is exactly what I've been craving.  It's light and simple and the details are simply perfect.  I love the interlocking rings -- such a simple detail but so pretty.

I couldn't even begin to guess how many denim jackets I've owned over the years.  From classic shapes to chambray blazers, they've been a staple in my closet -- but they seem to mysteriously disappear.  I get tired of them or they stop fitting or the shape goes out of style.  However, I think it's time to invest in a great one.  A denim jacket in a classic silhouette is an incredibly versatile piece: it's perfect over light spring dresses or with bright pants or shorts, and the durability is perfect for chilly mornings or going out at night.

Though the price makes it clear that this is an investment, I think that a well-made classic can't be beat.  Everything from the wash to the buttons to the shape of this jacket ensures that it will withstand the test of time, but the fun pockets and slightly cropped sleeve length keep the look modern.

When it comes ot chambray, J. Crew knows what it's doing -- and this little jacket proves it.  Though not as classic as the 7 for All Mankind piece, this blazer is so light and flirty.  It would be perfect with a pair of colored shorts or tossed on over a chic summer dress.  It's so pretty and polished and would be perfect with a pair of pumps for lunch in the sun.

Wishing you all a very happy weekend -- what are YOU constantly on the hunt for?

You read my mind! I've been on the hunt for one as well. Can you believe I've never owned a denim jacket before? I think they are great for summer.

I love the bracelet and the price. And I have a Jean jacket and love pairing it up with dresses.

I'm in love with that bracelet! Oh J Crew...that chambray blazer! Perfection.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

The J Crew blazer is fantastic! That would be a prized piece in my closet! Unfortunately I need to be saving my money right now. Boo!
I'm always looking for the perfect ankle boot: nearly flat, leather, easy to wear when traveling.

Nnenna said...

I'm on the hunt for a great denim jacket too! I have one right now, but I don't think the fit is quite right on me!

Sophie said...

ahh omg, i have the same issue. the constant search of the perfect denim jacket. its hard! love these ones you have picked :) x

sharon lei said...

I agree, it's always best to have a classic denim jacket. I've had my fair share of denim jackets... and surprisingly enough my favorite one is a vintage Levi's that I scored from a second hand shop a few years ago. It's worn in so well... I LOVE IT.

Hope you have a great week, Josie.

xx Love & Aloha

I feel like by the time I actually find the PDJ (perfect denim jacket) it's going to be uncool again! Ugh...fashion girl problems.
