Denim Jacket with Purple Cami

|
For the better part of last week we had warm, sunny weather and I was wearing shorts and sandals every day. Then overnight it switched right back to cool and cloudy and dropped almost 20 degrees, so it was back to sweaters and layers again! So of course, when I get around to posting this outfit it's back to cooler temps here and I can't imagine wearing shorts, even though it made sense at the time. I wore this outfit to my girls brunch earlier this month, and as you can tell it was one of our warmer days. It was almost warm enough to go without the jacket, but in the shade or indoors in A/C I was glad I had it. And if you're not having shorts weather just yet, white jeans would work just as well as with this outfit in place of shorts.

JACKET: This is my very favorite denim jacket. It's really soft and comfortable with plenty of stretch. It runs true to size (I'm wearing XS) and is a cropped length that's not too cropped, but that may also depend on your torso length. It is a splurge piece, so if you're looking for a more budget-friendly option this one looks very similar with great reviews.

CAMI: These lace trim camis from Abercrombie have been on sale for under $20 for the better part of the month, so if they're not on sale when this post goes live, I'm sure they will be again soon. I vary between XS and Small in tops depending on the brand and fit of the top, and I took an XS in this. It does have adjustable straps so you raise the neckline higher or lower to your preference.

SHORTS: My white denim shorts are from Abercrombie from last year, and they do have a current option with a 2.5" inseam. That said, I think mine are about a 3" inseam, so this pair from Old Navy are more similar to mine.

SANDALS: These run true to size and are a great pair of sandals for dressy/casual wear. The heel is not too high so it's still comfortable, but they still gave the outfit a more dressy look than if I wore flat sandals. After my girls brunch I did end up switching these sandals out for my Tory Burch Miller Sandals to take my kids to golf lessons since those seemed more appropriate for that type of casual activity.

Just a short and sweet outfit post for today! I usually like to have something more than just an outfit in my posts but that didn't end up happening today. I've been spending a little more time than usual on Instagram content lately with my Instagram Story Challenge. Yesterday's mom theme was so much and I'm looking forward to adding lots of books to my "to be read" list with today's theme. If you want to see my answers to the following topics (and my Mother's Day pics should still be up this morning if you're catching this early), be sure to follow along on Instagram.

  1. this cami is so cute in purple, love it on you. I have one purple-ish top in my closet, can't wait to pull it back out for Summer. Today I will share a book, since it wasn't mother's day where my mom is, I didn't get it together in time.

    1. Thanks so much for playing along with the challenge! And I failed at trying to limit my collection of these camis to just black/white. I needed a fun color for summer!

  2. Cooler weather is well behind u snow - it's nothing but 90's here. This week it's supposed to rain all week long - yuck!!! You wear this look so well, nothing better than a great denim jacket in my opinion. Mine is years old from Gap but I love it, it was definitely worth the splurge price I paid so many years ago.
    Happy Monday!!!

  3. I feel you on having a jacket even if it’s hot outside! Totally the same way here. The colors of this outfit are great neutrals together. Such a pretty purple!

  4. I always carry a cardigan, blazer, or jacket in summer because the weather can switch on a dime! That denim jacket is the perfect lightweight layer and I love how fitted it is!

    1. It get a little annoying for me always having to carry something around, but it's better than being cold!

  5. We've been having shorts weather here too, which is kind of weird for May! But I also always have a sweater or a jacket because everywhere I go seems to be freezing inside! Your IG stories challenge looks so fun! I'll try to join in!

  6. We kinda have the same situation here. It warmed up and I thought we were done, and then BAM it reverted back. WHAAA!!! This is a super cute outfit and if I had your legs, I'd totally be wearing it. How was I not following you on Instagram??? Fixed that! Have a great week, Gina! XO
