one heck of a jacket.


denim jacket: urban outfitters / t-shirt: forever21 / skirt: c/o Lulu*s / tights: c/o We Love Colors / booties: c/o Blowfish Shoes / scarf: c/o Snowdrift Designs 

so for those that follow via instagram, you obviously know these outfit pictures are pre-chopping. 

and as much as my long locks and i had a good, growing relationship (snicker, see what i did there?) for quite sometime, it was time to move on. out with the old, in the new! i always say. okay, not really but this does apply to pretty much everything in my life. 

except for my husband. he's a keeper. 

and speaking of moving on, this past sunday (when these pictures were taken) was the first sunday, i didn't go to church all bundled up. i still rocked some colored tights and one of my favorite, cozy scarves but the fact that i grabbed my denim jacket instead of my actual coat made me pretty giddy. spring is almost here!

and let me tell you: i've had this denim jacket since freshmen year of collage and it's one i might honestly keep for the point where i can tell my children, yes, child butler, this denim jacket is indeed vintage. this jacket has been on many adventures. you know celine dion's song, if walls could talk - if this denim jacket could talk, it'd have many adventure to spew. 

maybe not the same stories as celine's walls but this denim jacket has literally traveled the world...from mission trips, college classes, bike rides through the city, broadway shows, and even a handful of dates. and here i am venturing forward into my 30th year of life, this jacket will continue to be a constant companion.

so yes, i suppose, this denim jacket will be right there alongside my husband. imagine this: me and Ryan, sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch of our house in 40 years and do you see it? i'm wearing my urban outfitters denim jacket. that my friend is a one heck of a jacket.

in sickness and in health.
till the decomposition of your denim fibers do us part.

much love.
{happy thursday, friend.}
