Outfit: My Fav Way to Style a Maxi Skirt

This denim jacket? Yeah, I've had it since my high school days. Which means it's close to a decade old. Yikes! It is soft and worn in all the right places. It has that authentic faded, lived in hue that you only get with old denim. I love it! I still remember that back to school shopping trip with my mom and sister. Wasn't shopping for school clothes the greatest part of the year? Gosh, sometimes I miss those days. This adult thing isn't always all it's cracked up to be. :)

  9. Love this look Lauren! AND I totally agree I LOVED back to school shopping too! It was my favorite part of the year:) Isn't it awesome when you have a timeless piece of clothing like a denim jacket. Love it! I have a chambray top that I bought back in 1999 that I'll be wearing next week. It was my favorite then and I had actually forgotten that I saved it all these years...and now fashion has come full-circle:)
