I’m pretty sure there was a point in time when I would have laughed at myself for wearing (or obsessing over) a denim jacket.  And an embroidered, oversized, trucker jacket?  Probably wouldn’t have crossed my mind.  But in recent years, a good denim jacket has become my absolute go-to in the spring and summer.  In Southern California, even the nicest, warmest days can turn into chilly nights, and a great denim jacket is so easy to throw over so many spring looks.  Pair it with white or black denim, sundresses, or in this case, the suck-you-in faux leather leggings that I’ve lived in since fall.  Hashtag, uniform.

Gap has always been the first place I go for denim jackets (I have this classic style and LOVE it – use code YOURTREAT for 40% off), but when I came across this embroidered style recently, I couldn’t get it out of my head.  Annnd after, like, two days, I had to go back for it.  Two denim jackets are better than one, right?  I love the oversized fit of it, but definitely size down – it runs pretty big.  (I’m wearing the medium.)  It’s the softest denim, and I find myself throwing it on over everything lately, including my PJ’s when I forget that it’s street sweeping day and have to sprint out of the house to move my car before getting a ticket.  But that’s, you know, just me.  The rest of today’s look couldn’t be easier, and I can’t tell you how much use I’ve gotten out of these sneakers.  (Head over here for SO many color options.)  Hope everyone is having an amazing week!
