3x5 DENIM JACKET
Denim jackets. Back in fashion again, after a long hiatus (I wrote about it a few weeks ago in this post). Can you believe that up until last year I didn't have one? And will I, fast forward a few years, be banging my head against the wall about wearing them back...back now, I guess? I sure hope not. Mostly because banging one's head against the wall really hurts.
I have so many outfits in my head when I just throw a denim jacket on top and walk out all effortless and stylish. But sadly, I don't think it will be this jacket. I love it, I do, but I got it online, second hand and let me say, Topshop jackets do NOT fit true to size. This one right here is marked as UK12, or eur40, which normally is a nice size, a little roomy and very comfortable, just as you'd want your outerwear to be. But this one, ladies and gentlemen, this one is more like a 10 or even an 8.
So while I wore it in these photos, I'm actually looking to resell it and replace it with something more spot on. It also made me realise I'd quite like it to have pockets (the two breast pockets don't count). Pockets always come in handy, especially if you're wearing a dress and there is absolutely no way you can get away with not wearing a purse. I like to get away with not wearing a purse sometimes.
To keep the cost down and not to lose any money, I'm looking second hand again. There's quite a market for jean jackets so I'm positive in that I will find my perfect one. Meanwhile, I'll be admiring this H&M number. It's the right shade of blue, it has pockets, what more could a girl want?
Bottom line is, yes, I started wearing this spring's wardrobe before it was 100% complete, so I was expecting things like this might happen - having to add, replace or lose an item. And it's okay, I'd rather figure it out along the way than not figure it out at all.
Wishing you all a great Monday!
