Denim jacket and white jeans

Shopping at Homesense the other day, I couldn’t help noticing that I matched the furniture display, so I asked a shopper to take my photo. Thank you Paul!

I’m not the only one who likes wearing a denim jacket with white jeans.

My daughter Jean inspired me three years ago with her outfit and since then I’ve seen other fashionable women (both on blogs and in real life).


I got my purse at Jean’s Clothing Exchange (I got first dibs because it belonged to her). This one is handmade, and I love supporting artisans and crafters.

She bought it a a flea market in Harlem on our summer vacation in 2013.


Denim jackets match everything and I love how the rough and refined look adds interest to an outfit. My jacket is thrifted ($7.99).

      Thanks so much Patti! I thought you’d like this handbag. 🙂
      I’m glad I bought a denim jacket and so far I’ve only worn it with black or white, but I love how other women are styling theirs.

    Have to confess that I don’t own a denim jacket, hehe…I wore too much denim in my youth and I guess got kind of allergic to anything except jeans, haha. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t like to see denim on others. It is a really lovely combination, denim and white, looks pretty and fresh.

      And my confession–this is my FIRST denim jacket. I only have one pair of blue jeans (I do have several pairs of jeans in other colours and prints). Thanks so much for dropping by!

    Hi Carmen,

    You look awesome in that denim jacket ! Denim jackets are timeles and they match great with any outfit , like you show us in this blog. The crafted handbag is wonderful with all of these colorful patterns. You added color to your elegant casual outfit with that cool bag. A nice heritage from Jean 😉 Thanks for sharing !

      Thank you so much Ivan! I was with Jean when she bought the bag in Harlem, they were one-of-a-kind bags, and wouldn’t you know it, Jean and I liked the same one. Well, she got to use it and now it’s my turn. LOL

      ❤ carmen


  7. Denim jackets truly do go with everything.

    That handbag is quite the score! Lucky you.
