Thursday's thrifting tip: Jean Jackets

Jean jackets are what's up today. They are timeless and classic pieces that can add just a little something to an outfit. I wear the heck out of mine and consider it a staple in my wardrobe. So for today's thrifting tip I am going to let you in on a little secret. You can always and I mean always, find jean jackets at thrift stores! I don't think there has been a time that I have been to a thrift store where I have not found at least one jean jacket(ahhh hummm.....knock on wood!). For the most part, the thrift stores I go too usually have all the denim/jean jackets in one place. Some will have them just in with the rest of the jackets but I personally like when the stores separate it out. Purely for selfish reasons, I must admit. It makes my life a heck of a lot easier to have them in one place! :) Also check the men's sections if you don't find one in the ladies section. Yep, that's right! I have found jean jackets that are men's extra small, small or medium that you would never be able to tell where men's in the first place. Just make sure the fit is good and no one will be the wiser I promise.
The jean jacket I own was purchased at Goodwill for under $5 and it is GAP brand. Now GAP denim jackets usually run in the $30ish price range and while some might not think that's too much too pay, I can't even fathom having to pay that when I know you can almost always get one for under $5 at a thrift store. Here are a few of the ways I styled my jean jacket this year and also a few ways I found on Pinterest to style them that I love. 



I wore it over a simple tee, with camo pants and flats for a easy weekend look.


If you want an uber casual look, button up the jacket and throw on a over sized scarf. 


Denim on denim is always a classic way to wear a jean jacket.



These looks I found on Pinterest are perfect for spring! 

So now if you don't have a jean jacket and are feeling the need to get one, check out a local thrift store first!

P.S...I am now up on Bloglovin! If you have a moment and would like to follow me through there, it is super easy to do. And if you know anyone who would be interested in following along too, please share! I'd appreciate it :)
