One perk of cooler weather is that you can wear favorite jackets - old or new, or as in the case of this particular "old new" denim number, the one you bought in a thrift shop in the summer and couldn't wait for jacket friendly weather to come. I fell for the embroidery and the length of this jacket (or light coat if you will) - brand new condition with tags still attached for only $10 at Goodwill. Sooooo glad that I found it!
The rest of the outfit came together easily. I knew I wanted to showcase the jacket, so I picked my old faithful cropped red jeans which you might have seen quite a few times on the blog - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Dearest Sacramento had Share-in-Style: Sailor coming, so I happily added my old sailor tee, and of course living by the sea makes it way too easy to find the right background for the photo shoot. We got lucky and even captured a sailboat, though it was probably the shortest shoot in our history 'cause it started raining as soon as we got the first few pictures.
I picked my 8 years old Pikolinos, beautifully embroidered in Spain! The style was on clearance, and I got two pairs (red and golden) for the price of one. The red pair is in better shape by now, but I've decided that I still love my beat-up golden pair, cleaned them up and will make sure they appear on In The Writer's Closet one day.
Do you agree that stripes and floral are a match made in heaven?
And finally, my cluster earrings - a new to me pair from Chico's bought on clearance for just about $5 with all sorts of discounts and coupons. Aren't they lovely?
I am glad that the weather did not stay cloudy and rainy for the whole long Labor Day weekend - the official end of Summer season in the US - but I sure was so happyyyyyyy to wear my "old new" long denim jacket on Saturday night and share it here with you, dear friends in style!
And thank you for making me feel so welcomed back, you are the most amazing!
