The Essentials

Rebecca Dale Photography

I’d been wanting a denim jacket forever, but couldn’t find a wash I liked.  I was so happy when I found this one last weekend.  It’s the perfect wash; not too dark and not too light. I plan on layering it under my camel coat throughout the winter and over this white dress in the summer.

    It’s hard to find the perfect medium or light wash denim jacket. I feel like most of the ones I see are very dark wash. This one is so nice! Love the heels and jeans too.

      Hi! I’m wearing a size 4. I recommend sizing up (I usually wear a size 2 or small in shirts but this one looks better a bit loose.) :)
