Since I haven't properly admitted my undying love for all things denim, please pardon me. It's true denim has been my go to since college- that and a cozy SJSU hoodie. But what I should really be apologizing for is not sharing about my perfect denim jacket. I used to have a dark denim one in my collegiate days that I scored at Ross for $10, it was a gorgeous Ralph Lauren crop cut with front square pockets and I felt so very Audrey Hepburn in it. The only problem is that it had a dime-sized hole on the upper back part- something you couldn't really hide unless it was under a patch of some sort, and I was not putting a patch on my gorgeous dark denim sleek-minus-the-hole-jacket. So I wore it as such. At some point I gave the jacket away in hopes of finding a more perfect one. I thrifted ones way too small, found others that were too baggy, but not until recently did I find one that I truly loved, and at the American shrine of all things denim- go figure- Gap.  It's the perfect shade of blue, fits a multitude of layers underneath for chillier days and equally comfortable when adding layers on top. 

I've worn it to work, play, travel and everything in between. I've even had an old colleague admire this very jacket and of course, being the great co-worker that I am, offered to do a little personal shopping for her. 

Denim is a material that will forever last the test of time and trends, and I can't wait to see how my style evolves in another 10 years.

There is something so fresh about a white blazer, sure there may be something so Miami Vice about a white blazer but right now I'm going with the former. San Francisco generally won't let me get away with a little one-peice romper and a thin silk blazer, but LA will. That is exactly where I wore this get-up, it was our last day on our Southern California escape a few weekends ago, and we headed to breakfast at the good and good-for-you Urth Cafe. I ordered a few things but the interesting and delicious Green Tea Latte was definitely worth noting. Speaking of Miami and hot weather, aren't these neon tassel sandals so good? Tassels are having a moment in my mind. I'm think a tassel DIY is in order, who's in?
