spring wardrobe staples | a denim jacket

if it’s spring, then it’s time for a third layer. jackets, cardigans, or blazers are always at my beck and call this time of year. why? spring may be beautiful, but she can be fickle. one day the sun is shining with 70-degree temps. the next day can be overcast and downright chilly. one never knows what storm she’s brewing. take heart! that’s when spring wardrobe staples come into play. recently i shared my opens in a new windowspring jacket all-star list with you. a denim jacket always makes the list no matter if it’s on-trend or off. in my opinion, a denim jacket is worth its weight in gold. it’s perfect to wear on the plane when traveling. it looks fantastic with a skirt, dress, shorts or pants. it lasts for years. and comes in a variety of styles. 

if you follow my opens in a new windowInstagram account, then you know my master bathroom renovation is underway. can’t wait for the final result! but for the next month, i’m camping out in my guest bedroom. you would think since it’s just me, myself, and i living at casa djalali; it would be a breeze to move from one room to the next. guess what? there’s more than one extra pile of stuff stacked in my guest bedroom, and you should see my main bathroom! it ain’t pretty, that’s for darn sure. i can’t decide if i should try and organize my displaced toiletries for the project’s duration or just keep everything boxed up? oh, to have such silly problems. i’ll take ’em!  there’s nothing i love more than sprucing things up to make my home functional and beautiful to boot. 

Spring Wardrobe Staples

today’s ootd was inspired by classic style icon Reese Witherspoon for my classic style series on opens in a new windowInstagram. the entire outfit is built on spring wardrobe staples. it starts with a denim jacket (old, similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new window here, and opens in a new windowhere), a graphic tee (old, similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new window here, and opens in a new windowhere), a pair of opens in a new windowblue jeans from opens in a new window Talbots (limited sizes, similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, and opens in a new window here) pointy-toe pumps (old, similar opens in a new windowhere, opens in a new windowhere, and opens in a new windowhere), and a cute opens in a new windowred camera handbag from opens in a new windowJ.Crew (red no longer available, similar opens in a new windowhere and opens in a new windowhere) to polish things off. yes, it’s a double denim kind of day, and i think i like it. footwear, handbag, and jewelry are the accessories that make or break any outfit. and they add your personal spin to style. so you like white sneakers and a tote? a-ma-zing. or how about ballet flats and a wicker handbag? go for it! that’s the beauty of accessories. they let your style shine through.

    Very flattering silhouette & fit. Proving yet again why “a column of color” is a great choice to build an outfit around.

    And I love the bold pop of pink/red in the top. I thought at first that it was from Chico’s.

    If this were: “Who wore it better” — I would definitely give you the win over Reese Witherspoon, Beth! I think the double denim works. You look wonderfully put together!

    Love how you enjoy wearing “high heels”! My sweet Mother, passed at age 98, used to tell me wear those short skirts and high heels. Now that I’m 77 my skirts aren’t that short and my shoes are “kitten” heels or wedges but her words ring true when I think of you and your beautiful style!

    • love your mother’s attitude! but even kitten heels are “heels” no matter the skirt length. keep on being you.
