Distressed But Not Stressed for Denim Jackets

I dream of jeany jackets.

My favorite new staple item is a denim jacket. A good basic denim jacket can take your outfit far.  It's a everywear kinda piece you need that can make an all black style more edgy or a floral dress look more bohemian. A denim jacket is meant to be worn everywhere and also look worn to carry all those fun adventure memories. 

While many places carry denim jackets, finding the right one was the challenge.   I wanted mine to be a little bit more unique but still casual enough to wear every day. I also wanted a more light-washed vintage look to mine with subtle rips.

DSTLD was my ultimate pick.  It's a conscious choice to pick a brand over a retailer and I find it gives you more individuality to your outfit even when it's a staple item. DSTLD covets itself by offering high-quality denim items that would cost $400 at retail.   For only $75,  I have the vintage high fashion look for a fraction of the price. While the sleeves are bit longer for petites, rolling em' up doesn't take away from the jacket and the torso fit is what counts here more.   

This photoset was taken when I traveled to Mt. Fuji in Japan.  I needed an outfit that was casual enough to hike in but still had an edgy vibe.  I don't find the need to be that practical in my outfit choices when I go on adventures.  A classic polka dot top and black jeans are the foundation to this look.  Practicality comes in the form of a denim jacket, a perfect add-on for chilly weather when I reached the top. Vans lo pros are the only "sneakers" I own, but I like the slim look to them that gives a more lean and tall look. I add a bandana as my cool accessory and subliminally play off the polka dots with circular sunglasses to complement.
