To be frank, I’ve never been a big fan of a denim jackets. Actually, since we don’t really have transitional weather in Hungary – at least how I remember – I didn’t really need one, but here in London something light is almost all the time is a must, so I gave in.
It’s not my first experience though, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know well, I had this little experience with this vintage number I worn here. I liked the 80s vibe, but didn’t have on me so often, so eventually I sold it on eBay.
I thought then, a denim jacket is not my thing, but I’ve never got it out of my head, and finally I decided I need the most basic one I can get. And then, all of a sudden, I found this one with a really good price in H&M. I say good price, because it’s everything I need at the moment, and just 35 quid, compared to the (Levi’s) vintage ones which come with a shocking £50 price tag. Ok, somebody has to select these, the quality is known, and it’s really one of a kind, but 50 quid, really? But again, maybe it’s just me, I’ve never been a big fan of denim jackets, so I might shut it.
Anyway, I love this one, and I’ve already worn it multiple times, so maybe this time I got it right. And no, apparently double denim – although it’s the same shade of blue – doesn’t bother me at all, and I loved it with my gingham skort. Cool, who knew?
The rest of the outfit was very similar to the one which I called one of my favourites on Instagram a few weeks ago, but this time I swapped the satin pumps to lace up ballet flats from last year. Actually I still think these jeans are the best with heels, but oh well, these are way comfier for sure.
On the top I wore a vintage tee with this great velvet bralet, plus I added some tan via my boxy bag and cat eye shades and I was set for this beautiful sunny day.
