OOTD - Oversized Denim Jacket


Nothing seems more iconically 'cool' to me than a denim jacket - the more used and worn the better.  While I've been one to favour a cropped, more tailored version there is something so effortless about an oversized denim jacket.  Although labeled the boyfriend jacket, this particular one is actually my uncle's from the 70s and when he casually mentioned that he was thinking of gifting it to one of my brothers I was quick to put in my bid. Perfectly worn, oversized denim jackets don't come along every day and I'm happy to have given it a good home in my closet - sorry bros, you snooze you lose.

How do you feel about the oversized denim jacket?  Do you prefer a more tailored and shorter version? Would you have also taken the jacket from your Uncle instead of letting your brothers have it? Let me know!

    1. Thank you Gabriella! I'm so happy with how these photos turned out as well, and am definitely loving the oversized denim - hopefully it stays warm enough to wear it for a few more weeks!

  2. I don't even own a denim jacket. lol. Yes it is true. I love it on other people, and this looks amazing on you but it's not me. I always get so cold so I need something fuzzy and warm. Definitely a keeper for you though.

    1. LOL one of these days we're going to get you into a denim jacket, and you will be a convert! In the meantime, I will keep my eyes open for a denim jacket with a fuzzy lining for you!

  3. These pictures are perfect! Wow!!! The composition and color scheme are just amazing... I was actually just scrolling through my bloglovin feed before going to bed, feeling all sleepy, but this post woke me up again. Just gorgeous - I love the pop of red combined with the denim jacket xx
