Dressy Skirts & Denim Jackets

Dressy skirts and denim jackets... what do you think about them?  Not all that long ago, I didn't own a single denim jacket. Now I own three of them (all thrifted!) and I throw them on over everything!

Jacket: Thrifted
Top: Gap
Skirt: maurices

I love how a denim jacket can take a dressy look and make it appropriate for something a little more casual.   Or in this case, how it can take this snazzy little skirt from maurices that I've only worn once and make it appropriate for the third grade classroom!

Denim jackets are kind of like a magical thing, really.

I think they might be right up there with Starbucks coffee and chocolate.

I like denim jackets, but I'm kind of a jacket person. Not in the winter though, because sometimes I find all the very bulky layers difficult to fit comfortably under my winter coat. I generally wear them in the spring/fall. Anyway, TMI.

Your outfit is adorable. Love the colored tights and boots. The skirt is really cute...that's a bubble skirt, right?

Bottom line = Adorable!
