Hi everyone! I'm so excited to share that I'm taking over Stage's Instagram stories and did a guest post with them on their blog. One goal that I had this year for my blog was to share outfits that consisted of the same piece. I know it's not ideal to go out and buy a brand new outfit everyday. When I was in college, I remember putting over 20 outfits together with less than 10 items. I'm teaming up with Stage to share a staple piece that I didn't own up until now; a denim jacket. A denim jacket is a classic clothing piece and I have no idea why I didn't own one before. I'm sharing tips to create a winter, casual, and spring transition with the same denim jacket. 

I’m constantly on the go and opt in for casual everyday wear most days of the week. The first outfit that came into my mind was one that I can wear every day. When I picked up the gray romper, I swore it was a dress. When I found out that it was a romper, I had to bring it home. When you have two children and they both want to be constantly held, rompers are a lifesaver. Add a pair of white sneakers and you’re set. The denim jacket helps dress the outfit up. This outfit is the epiphany of a casual wear. I’ve worn similar outfits like this for years and it never gets old. You probably have at least one of these pieces in your closet already, if not all.

It’s still chilly here in Houston so the second outfit is one that you can wear now. Denim jackets can be layered underneath and over. If it’s really cold, throw a long length sherpa coat over your denim jacket and layer underneath with a sweater. I wore this red button up and black jeans for an edgier look. Denim on denim is very trendy but it’s a little hard to style because you have to get the denim colors just right. I personally love a blue denim jacket with black jean combo. Mainly because most tops will look great with the two; a plain camisole, sweaters, t- shirts, and button ups. 

My last outfit is for transitioning into spring. Spring arrive next month and I’m sure a few of us have already ordered a few floral dresses. Instead of waiting for the weather to warm up to wear your new pieces, throw on your denim jacket. It completes the outfit and ties well together. That’s why a denim jacket is a staple piece, you can wear it during multiple seasons. A teddy coat for instance can’t be thrown over a floral midi dress, your outfit would look like two different seasons. This last style tip is super easy; throw your denim jacket over your spring dress, romper, or jumpsuit. That’s it, There’s nothing else to it. 

Denim jackets are versatile and get better with time. The jackets that I borrow from my sister are 8+ years old. They’ve loosen in the shoulders to fit and the fabric has gotten softer. Now that I finally have my own, I can always bring it with me. 

Thank you so much for reading along. I hope my tips have helped you style the perfect outfit.
