Outfit: Stripes and Denim

May 7, 2012

It’s about that time of year when you ditch real jackets in favor of cute blazers, cardigans and denim jackets. (Well, if you live in Florida like me you probably rarely wear — or even own — a real jacket!). I’ve been eager to wear my practically vintage Gap denim jacket circa 2004 after it’s been on hiatus possibly for a year or two. It goes with everything.

This post is kind of an ode to Gap (one of my fave places to shop) because I found this striped cutie dress on clearance a few weeks ago and snatched it up in a heartbeat. While I think it might be slightly wide on the bottom I couldn’t resist. It’s one of those pieces I saw for at least a month at full price but resisted and then all of a sudden, bam! One left on clearance in my size. Meant to be.

      Thanks!! I thought I’d give my bubble necklace a break before readers totally got sick of me. :)

    Love it! That’s something I don’t miss about living in FL. I’ve enjoyed wearing heavier sweaters and jackets now. :)

    So cute!  What a great clearance find.  I think a denim jacket goes with everything especially when you need to layer in the spring. 

    • ALyson — TAGG

      Totally agree. Since I haven’t found the perfect chambray yet this is working well for me.
