Colorful...





DRESS: Necessary Clothing (love this & this too) | JACKET: old (more styles here) | WEDGES: Tory Burch (craving these new style) (inexpensive version) | PEARLS: J. Crew | SUNGLASSES: Forever 21 (love these similar styles here here) | BAG: Gigi New York (ON SALE!!!) | LIPS: Happy Go Lucky | RINGS: Monica Vinader, Stella & Dot | WATCH: Michael Kors

My sister always teases me because I love denim jackets and she says they make me look like a teacher! (she's a teacher!) Anyway, I really do love a good denim jacket - for me, its the best transitional piece for back-to-school & fall. I really like getting lots of wear out of my summer dresses but in school we weren't allowed to certain straps so a light wash denim jacket is my go-to to pair with summer dresses. 

On a different note, did you see that the Gigi New York Hayden Satchel is UNDER $300 now?! It's one of my favorite bags I have ever owned. The quality is wonderful, not to mention the size is perfect. It's pretty big so it fits so much stuff in it. I also love that it has a cross body strap!

  15. I agree with you. My denim jacket is my go to piece for work when I am wearing a dress with no sleeves. I like it because it does not take the focus away from whatever dress I am wearing.

  19. haha as a teacher, I wonder if teachers really wear that many denim jackets? if so, maybe because they're so versatile :) you look great in the denim jacket + floral dress combo!
