Just Add a Denim Jacket

It’s hard to believe that I just got a denim jacket this year. The jacket has become such a staple in my closet that it feels like it’s been there forever. (Maybe it’s also because I have so many memories of wearing one as a kid growing up in the 90s, ha!)

I especially love wearing the dark denim with white. I wear it over all kinds of dresses, but I just love the way it looks over a crisp white dress.

I’ve also been super into these shoes lately. I am a HUGE Stubbs and Wootton fan. You guys know that I rarely spend too much money on shoes, with the exception of Stubbs. I find that the quality is so high and 100% worth it for the shoe that you get. I was thrilled when they asked if I wanted to try their new “Carrie” style. The pointed toe, tiny heel, and slingback make for a gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous silhouette.

They were a little tight in the toebox are on my first wear but then stretched out just so. Stubbs and Wootton is offering CP readers 10% off your order with “CARLY10” at checkout through the end of August!

My daughter just grabbed this one at Old Navy. I picked one up at H and M. YEARS ago…in the 80’s, I had a great oversized one from Levi’s. I definitely like the trimmer style now. A great basic piece.

I just got my first denim jacket last summer in Paris! (Pretty random, admittedly) Mine is oversized and in a light wash. They’re so easy to throw on with almost any outfit. My college has a tradition called May Day and everyone wears white for it, and this past May it was still pretty cold so there were quite a few people who threw on denim jackets over their white dresses, including me. It was as if denim jackets were part of the dress code as well haha -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

I just bought a denim jacket to pair with a few dresses I have in my closet. I love the way you style this whole outfit. It’s perfect to transition into fall weather.


But aren’t you worried that a denim jacket will discolor and stain the white dresses? I never where my denim with white dresses because of that.
