Rugged Elegance: Denim and White Eyelet

This thrifted denim jacket cost $$7.99. I bought it yesterday because I have been looking for one ever since I missed a really unique denim jacket at V.V. Boutique (Value Village).

Next stop, the ruins in downtown Galt (part of the City of Cambridge, Ontario).

I like the look of rugged with delicate, so I’m pairing it with my white embroidered blouse and eyelet skirt. I bought the blouse last summer and my skirt is about 15 years old (the reason I have so many clothes because I keep them and take care of them).

The scent of lilacs surrounding me in this rugged and beautiful place is something a camera cannot capture, but the imagination can.

A great place for my adventurous grandson.

  2. Carmen, I hope you had a great Pentecost!
    So sublime, the contrast of the rough, and lacy. You keep your clothes 15 years?? I’m impressed. I can barely keep mine nice for a year.
    In college I had a teal denim jacket that I wore constantly. When I got married, I outgrew it, sadly.
    But I kept it many years, as a memento! It’s gone now.

      Thank you Melinda! I have clothes way older than that! I have clothes from my teen years, real vintage! I’m still the same size as back then so they still fit. πŸ™‚

    It is so appropriate to wear rugged Denim jacket with delicate skirt and blouse in the rugged ruins of our downtown Galt with their delicate foliage, the complementary forces of yin and yang.

    As always, your blog enhances my day.
