god bless the denim jacket

crop top: asos, cardigan: madewell, denim jacket: j. crew factory, skirt: madewell, shoes: birkenstocks

When I went to class in this outfit, I heavily underestimated how cold it would be. Thankfully, I was in a hurry (what else is new) and forgot to take my jacket out of my bag from the day before. And the beauty of the denim jacket? It goes with virtually everything, and will save you from a strong breeze :)

What it doesn't save you from? Tripping and falling down while stepping off the bus. I've never possessed much grace, but it's been a while since I've taken such a dramatic fall. This happened...last Friday, and the leg and arm I fell on are still sore :(


  1. Oh man, I'm so sorry about that fall! I do a dramatic fall every month or so -- such things happen frequently in my life...
    Love the outfit -- the fresh stripes look great against the pretty print on the skirt.
    I don't own a denim jacket (I really want one, but I'm so picky) but I can see why it'd be an instant savior.

  2. Oh no, the fall must have been brutal. I actually feel ON the bus a few weeks back in a sudden stop and scraped my knee and everything. UGH not cool.

  3. Denim jackets are an absolute classic - it goes with your outfit perfectly! LOVE the casual way you tied a sweater around your waist!
    And I totally feel ya about tripping down the bus steps! It's worse when you trip up the steps and there are people behind you. Hope you didn't fall too hard!

  4. I have been thinking the same thing...I LOVE my denim jacket! And at least you looked stylish when you fell :)

  5. Ugh I hate dramatic falls because when they happen they hurt the most. But besides that it's always great to have a denim jacket around, it's definitely a hot essential in anyone's wardrobe.
