The Tiny Heart: Denim Jacket

4.09.2012

Denim Jacket





 
Dress-Target, (no longer online but similar here), Jacket-Old Navy (similar option), Sunnies-Macy's (similar for $6!), Flats-Target (similar)

This weekend consisted of lots of family time due to the holiday weekend. Friday and Saturday we celebrated Passover with my family. I ate tons of matzoh ball soup and my mom's pot roast (her claim to fame). Sunday we celebrated Easter with my hubby's mom and brother. And by celebrated I mean we went to a bar for lunch, ha. I've also been eating Easter chocolates all week, so that counts right?

While I was at my parents' house, I went searching for my old jean jacket in my closet. Luckily my mom keeps everything and it was still there (don't worry, she doesn't have to go on Hoarders, promise). I feel very 1993 in this jacket. Am I channeling DJ Tanner or what?

Are you wearing your jean jacket again or is it a trend you wish stayed in the 90s?

    I am a fan of the jean jacket trend. Although I never have and still do not own a jean jacket. I get jean-jacket-envy all the time now!

  8. I just gave my denim jacket to Goodwill, and now I'm really regretting it! I love this outfit on you - Target really has the best stuff. How long ago did you get this dress? I was planning on making a Target run tomorrow and may have to look for it!

    1. Oh no! Maybe if you go to Goodwill it'll still be there. :) I got the Target dress about a month ago, maybe a little longer. Might still be in stores!

  9. I still have my jean jacket from college. I actually thought I had given it away, but was pleasantly surprised it was still in my closet. I love that dress! I had been looking at it in Target. Some stores still have it in stock and I think it's on sale for 30% off.

    I wish I could comfortably wear denim jackets, but I can't move in them. Fat girl problems I guess! ;)

  46. Dang girl...you've got a lot of comments! Yes, I'm totally rockin' the jean jacket still. In fact, some one asked me the other day where I got mine, and I had to break them the news that it was from the 90's...I had kept it all these years!

  47. What a cute casual outfit, I love the colorful striped dress with your jean jacket. (And I think you made the jean jacket look very modern, rolling up the sleeves was a great idea.)
