Today's Everyday Fashion: Guest Post



































This is a guest post while J is away on vacation. Everyone give Katie a big warm welcome!

Jean jacket meets silk skirt: I loved the idea of dressing down a silk skirt with a denim jacket. This outfit was for work, so I added some Wedges instead of the flat sneakers. What do you think of the comeback of the jean jacket?

  1. A jean jacket is an essential in my opinion! I love how you paired it with this fun skirt!  I wear my jean jacket with everything from maxi dresses, floral skirts, and jeans!

  2. Love this fancy-casual look, Katie!  Your skirt is sooo cute and what a great deal from Banana Republic!  I love jean jackets but since I don't have one, right now I'm usuing a denim shirt the same way - unbuttoned and left open on top of fancier dresses and skirts to give my look a casual vibe.

  8. Jean jackets never went away for me. I have one from the Gap that I've had for years now. I love it! It's especially great with casual skirts and pants.

  10. Thanks everyone! I felt weird about wearing denim anything other than jeans for awhile, but now back to loving jean shirts and jackets with so many things...especially skirts and dresses!

  13. LOL - glad you agree that it's an essential wardrobe piece! I just wasn't 'with it' for a while, I guess :-)

  14. Loving the outfit- but I have to know, where did you get that michael kors watch on sale??

  15. Aren't those wedges great for the price? I also saw the EXACT same pair at TJ Maxx, but they were 'Aerosoles' brand...hmmm...wonder if the same place made them? That would definitely explain the comfort factor!

  16. Thanks! I do think the jacket tones down the bright colors of the skirt and shirt!

  19. Boo!!! That is sad. I did just have a girl comment on FB that she found the skirt on Ebay recently...you might want to give it a try? I just reccommend going up a size or two. I wear Banana all the time, and this one definitely ran super small!

  20. I wear my denim jacket to work all the time! It's an easy way to cover up on those slightly chilly days, and it goes with everything!

  21. Thanks! I got it at www.luxurywatchstore.com, but it looks like they are out of stock :( To find the best price, I always type the item number into google, and then click on the shopping option. Some of the results may be a little shady, so I try to do a little reseach before actually purchasing (checking the authenticity and return policy is a must!). Hope that helps!

  22. I got it at www.luxurywatchstore.com, but it looks like they are out of stock :(  The way I typically look for a good deal is to type the item number or description into google and select the 'shopping' link. You can sort by price, and I think it has better results than the deal finding websites I used in the past (like pricegrabber or bizrate). I do recommend doing a little homework on the site before purchsing though because some can seem a little shady (I always try to determine the authenticity and return policy - just in case). Hope this helps!
