When I first named this a must have back in 2013, it was called “sweet wash” or “sweet vintage” or “sweet pea” or something like that. And then Nordstrom got a new one in that looked exactly the same (for like a hot minute), and it was called Amelia (which is the one that’s back this year). I ordered the Amelia last year just so I could try it on and compare the differences.
And I couldn’t figure out any real differences between the two!
So, a little more than half of today’s post is all about THE JACKET!
But if you already have the jacket, there’s something today for you too!
Stay tuned and I’m going to tell you two new items that go will go with your jacket perfectly!
And even if you already have a denim jacket, if it’s from more than 3 or so years ago, I would like to gently suggest that maybe your denim jacket needs an update.
well (you can read their policies HERE).
and they all have some give and stretch to them!

I found two new items that are flipping made for the jacket for this spring.
Yep. I’m READY FOR SPRING!
I saw THESE pants online,
and I just randomly took a chance on them.
And I’ve gotta tell ya, I’m feeling a little bit genius right now.
They have a lot of stretch in them (which makes them very comfy), they are obviously distressed, and they are a boyfriend fit. All of the other colored jeans in my closet are skinny jeans, so I’m happy to have a pair with this more relaxed fit! And for $58, they didn’t totally break the bank!
For size reference, I’m wearing a 5 in the pants. I’m normally a 5 in junior’s sizing, but the size guide says the 5 is a 2, and I only wish I was a 2 right now. If you know what you are typically in junior’s sizing, go with that size. If you are ordering by your 2, 4, 6, etc. size, I would say to size down 2 size. Hope that makes sense!
Here’s the low down on the entire outfit:
And if you wanted a closer look at the slip on sneakers, here you go!
I mean, come on.
These types of slip on sneakers are HUGE for Spring, but some of them are too far out there for me…..to bright, too shiny, too hole-y…..but these were just right.
It’s like I’m a modern day Goldilocks.
For size reference, I’m typically a 6-6/12 in shoes, and the 6s were great on me. If you are a solid half size, I would recommend ordering a size up.
Now let’s talk about their comfort level for a minute.
One of the reviewers said they “felt like slippers”. Now, I wouldn’t go that far, but they seemed comfy enough. However, a reader (Hi Betsy!) posted on facebook last night that she was have quite a bit of trouble breaking hers in. Mine were fine when I wore them around the house yesterday, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed they’ll be okay for longer periods of time too!

And if for some reason you don’t like my slip-ons, here are some options for
other neutral-ish slip-ons. 🙂
And this is a little bit off topic, but if you’ve been reading since last year, you know that THESE neutral patent flats were my shoe of choice last spring. Well, I had a moment of panic last week (just ask Erika!) when I thought for a moment that they hadn’t brought them back last this year.
Well, great news Erika, all is right with the world. They’re back!
So back to the jacket. Here’s what’s gonna happen.
me in it another 23 or some odd times.
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane so you can see me in around 74 previous looks with the denim jacket over the last couple of years.
(One that was fitted and not boxy.)

Here are some pics of lots of you girls in the jacket (the pics were sent in for a contest sometime last year I believe)!
Here are all of the KUT jackets currently available. And really, you can’t go wrong with any of them!
(I’m not sure why the one jacket says $0. It’s from Zappos, and it’s $69.50.)
If you’re still on the fence and not sure if this jacket is for you, rest assured that I’ve done my due diligence before picking this jacket.
I’ve tried on TONS and TONS of jacket.
These Kut jackets are the best out there.
They will become a staple in your wardrobe for the entire year and years to come.
Send me a message thanking me for my recommendation.
I’m sad to report that the white Vigoss jeans that I ordered (and was hoping I would love) didn’t work for me.
And I don’t think they’ll work for most of you girls either.
The distressing is just too high up and bare.
