i’m wearing: peach/navy dress from lulus, levis jacket was an ebay purchase, striped wedges c/o ross dress for less, perfect memorials necklace, various bracelets and my michael kors watch.

years ago i bought a brand new calvin klein jean jacket. i wore it like once and then it sat in my closet for YEARS. so i finally sold it at a garage sale for like $5. and i’m still a little upset about it to this day. but i feel a little better now because i won an ebay auction and got this levis denim jacket for like $23. i’m so lucky it fits perfectly and the detailing on the back was a nice surprise. isn’t ebay fabulous???

p.s. we finally made it up to redding, ca and eep was an angel the whole drive thanks to that dvd player! he didn’t nap either day but as i am typing this, he is fast asleep in his crib right next to me. phew. now i just hope he goes back to his normal nap schedule when we get home!!! hope you all have a nice weekend! xoxo

    Great outfit! I am on the lookout for a jean jacket too – summer in Cali is hot but stores and restaurants are blasting AC:( so you can’t go anywhere without a jacket or a cardigan:)
    Have a safe drive!

    Yay – so glad you made it & he did okay in the car for you! Now you know you can take more road trips with him (LOL!).

    Love this dress – the ombre is so pretty! Why is it that jean jackets look so cute on everyone else…I have tried a million of them on lately & always end up feeling like a look too “farm girl”!?!? What am I missing here?

    Girl, I feel you. A jeans jacket is the number one item on my thrift store wish list. I, too, had the PERFECTLY worn in jeans jacket several years ago and got rid of it too. Ridic. Who does that??? This guy. And apparently you too, so I’m in good company. Ah well – love yours – you’re right, that detailing on the back is dope.

    So glad you guys made it safely and that he didn’t give you any problems on the drive. Have a fabulous time and a wonderful weekend!
    Loving this dress by the way, and I feel your pain with the jacket. I did the same thing a few years ago and still regret it. Love the back detail on this levi’s.

    That dress and jacket combo is just awesome! The peach looks great on your skin color too! Good choices.

    Great combo denim jacket/ombre dress! I need to add an ombre dress to my wardrobe! I know the feeling of selling a piece of clothing only to regret it in a year or so. Glad you snagged this goody! Happy weekend on your vacay with the fam!

    Love the details of the dress. I have a great Levi jacket that my mom decided to use as a pillow at a hotel and ended up leaving it there. I am still heart broken. Glad you found a replacement on eBay. So glad your trip went well. Have a great weekend and thanks for participating in Fashionista Friday!

    I really love tie dye! I’ve bought a few items this season and I can’t believe you sold your jean jacket for $5 at a garage sale!!! Atleast you did get a great deal and I love the details on the back of your new jacket! Hope the trip on the way back will go just as well!

    I am noticing that you are getting some fabulous deals on Ebay Jenn – I used to shop on that site a lot (for Reiss, since I know my size well and you can get some great deals) but lately it’s fallen by the wayside. Hmmm browsing ebay might just be how I am spending this afternoon! You look so cute in this outfit – the dress length looks lovely on you.

    i love when ebay works out, you can sometimes get some good finds! i hunted for the perfect jean jacket for about six months before i found it, and now i can’t go even a week without wearing it, so i can relate! enjoy your jacket!
