Here I am in my standard spring school run outfit - it's about a 10 minute walk to school, 15 minutes standing around waiting for Kira, and then a 15 minute walk home (my legs are significantly longer than hers!).
Now, I thought you could never go wrong with a denim jacket - other than the "double denim" thing, which I'm always very careful not to do (which is why you've seen a lot of these linen mix boyfriend cut trousers recently!). I've had this particular model 3 or 4 years, and it's beautifully worn in. Unfortunately it was a rather popular model, and certainly in two offices at work of 9 of us, 4 of us have one!). It's seen me through thick and thin (literally! I bought it when I was putting some weight on, it had a stage where I couldn't do it up around my hips, and now looking at these photos it's looking a little large, certainly in the sideways shot!)
Yesterday after school (which admittedly Kira came out of in a bit of a grump - it sadly seems to be her default mode recently) Kira said that I wasn't to walk with her. Further questionning resulted in the statement "that jacket is so last year".
So what do you think? Thumbs up for denim? or designate it to the charity shop bag? (sob!)
