it’s a denim kind of day today with another round of overcast skies. it has been one rain storm after another in this neck of the woods. with unusually mild temps to boot. i will not complain. yet. although a stretch of sunshine would be a welcome sight. while i’m waiting, i’ll throw on some blue jeans. or maybe a double dose as i couldn’t resist trotting out my latest version of a denim jacket.
today, the jacket is flying solo as i converted it into a shirt. but this cute little number with a longer length, ties at the waist and pockets can be styled a gazillion ways. today’s version is secured at the waist with an old-fashioned hook and eye. but i added a little glitz to the top with the addition of a favorite brooch that’s put to work to keep the flap closed. frayed hem jeans are my go-to favorites this spring. the shorter length is perfect for showcasing all the details of a of fab pair of sandals. and the accessories? i tied in a gold cuff and earrings to the gold trim on the sandals. done and done. now if we could only catch a glimpse of old mr. sun.
