Jean Jacket

We've seen chambray make its comeback, but how do you feel about the jean jacket? Maybe you've still been rocking yours (cough, cough...Stephanie in TX), but I gave all of my old school jean jackets away years back and I'm really starting to regret that decision. Lately, I've been seeing many different looks featuring the classic jean jacket and I'm loving how many different ways you can wear it. Right now, I'd probably wear it most often with a long maxi or a sundress. It's bringing me back to my high school days when I wore it everywhere. And I mean, everywhere. I think I know what's next on my shopping list! 

Do you still have your jean jackets? 
How do you plan on styling them this year?


update: Me and a light wash jean jacket met eyes, fell in love, and she's now in my closet. You can add her to your closet, too: shop here. Only $25. Thank me later.

...and just because it's Wednesday and we're halfway through the week, I wanted to share this awesome healthy sangria recipe I found. For the past couple weeks, I've been loving the fresh taste of sangria and cutting up different fruits (on our blate!) to put in it. It's definitely one of my favorite summer drinks! Mmmmmm. 


This recipe has no added sugar (something you definitely to watch out for in sangria recipes) which is what originally attracted me to it, so drink up! (and if you are feeling lazy like I was last week and don't have all of those ingredients-pick up the good ole' box wine Franzia, in Sangria, and cut up lemons, limes, and oranges. Delish!)



Enjoy, lovelies!

  6. I love a good jean jacket! I think I'm more drawn to lighter washed than darker washed which is weird because I hate light wash jeans but I think it looks more vintage which I love! They have some really cute ones on sale at Old Navy right now, I keep meaning to pick one up :)
    Looks like I'll be making some Sangria this weekend!
