Style Crush: Classic Denim Jackets

In the past, if I saw something that I liked, thought I liked, or could grow to love, I would buy it and hope for the best. Needless to say, there were some neglected jackets, shoes, and more sitting in the back of my closet hoping to see the light of day. This became a problem when I literally had no more room to store clothing, so it was time to say adieu to some items I had collected in the name of my closet over the years.

Since then, I've vowed to only buy things that I truly love and would contribute to the lifestyle that I would like to live. Let's call it a style crush. You know, it's that one piece that you try to work in as often as possible without being repetitive. So this month, one item that I have a great big style crush on is the classic denim jacket.

Remember having one back in grade school? Or when members of the Blossom cast wore them with those hats? It really is the perfectly versatile season-changing jacket-- it provides structure, warmth, isn't overbearing, and can be dressed up or down. Go on, get creative with it! Here are ways I've been inspired to wear it lately.

So, what is your style crush these days?
