The Best of Both Worlds

gingham1As much as I love dressing girly in pastels, jewels and bows, I also love taking a little inspiration from menswear. Denim, chinos and gingham can be found all through my husbands closet, yet I love the comfortable feel and look of this outfit on myself. What balanced the outfit out are the jewels and the chic bag which was gifted to me from my sister. I’ll let the little secret out that she picked it up at Cracker Barrel! You never know where you’re going find great pieces, so keep your eyes open!


I had been on the hunt for the perfect denim jacket for years. Something about them always made me feel boxy or the color was wrong, so I turned them down time and time again. Then I found this one at Anthropologie a few months ago and was thrilled. It has a bit of stretch and a cut that is slightly raised in the back which gives it a great shape and keeps it from looking boxy. There is also a bit of leather detailing and the denim has the perfect amount of distressing. It was well worth the wait and now that warmer temps are (hopefully) not far off, I can’t wait to put it on regular rotation!gingham4
