White Denim Jacket

Perfect Summer Jacket

A white blazer has been on my list of clothing items to get for a while now. Unfortunately, I still haven’t found the perfect one (to be honest, I also haven’t really looked all that hard). In the meantime, I really enjoy my white denim jacket. To me a white jacket, including a white denim jacket, is the perfect summer jacket.  Wearing one always makes me happy!

Recently, I paired my white denim jacket with a blue/white striped tee, capri jeans, and a red necklace. A casual, comfortable outfit, perfect for running errands.

Healthy Living Update

Since my Conscious Cleanse post last week, I have started to clean up my eating a bit. I’ve started every day with a green smoothie, eaten a large salad for lunch, and started to cut down on sugar and caffeine. I’m really excited about starting the Conscious Cleanse on June 8! If you are thinking of doing the cleanse with me, click here for more information about the Conscious Cleanse. You can get $25 off with code Andrea25. The last day to register is June 6.

I also signed up for a month of unlimited barre classes at a local studio. I have been doing barre-type workouts at home, but not as consistently as I should have. Also, I always get a much better, deeper workout at a studio, and I was very sore after my first few classes. In addition, I stand up straighter and already feel a lot better. My plan is to take 5 classes per week, and I really look forward to them. It feels good to take care of myself!

Questions: What’s your favorite summer jacket? Do you like a white denim jacket in spring/summer? Have you recently "cleaned up" anything in your life?

    1. Thanks, Amy! I'm actually currently contemplating whether to take the white denim jacket with me on vacation. Part of me is afraid it'll get dirty too quickly, but it's just such a great summer jacket!

    1. Yes, barre classes are fantastic workouts! So challenging in fact that it really helps to do them in a studio where you can't cheat... :-) Plus, you can't really replicate the barre at home that well even though chairs, etc. can be used as a substitute...

  7. I am going to start eating healthier too after this weekend as I gear up for marathon training! Eek! I do try to get a smoothie in at lunch for my drink to get more fruits/veggies in my body every day. I love that white jacket, will be a perfect layer this summer, esp. with places that have the A/C on too high!

    1. Good look with the marathon training and cleaning up your eating! And, yes, a jacket is a must in overly A/C'd buildings... Plus, around here it's usually quite cool in the morning and at night.

    1. Barre workouts are intense. Sometimes the instructors take photos at the end of the class and post them on FB. I always hope I'm not in them as my alignment is usually a bit off by the end of a challenging class... :-) And, yes, of course I linked up! :-)

      Happy Weekend, Nancy!

  10. I don't have a white jacket---but I have a white denim vest. I do love mine, and have thought about getting the jacket version (but I have to draw the line sometimes, right?).
    Love it with your stripes and pink bag!!

  12. I just took a white blazer to a consignment shop. White isn't good on me.

    It looks fresh and bold on you.

    I should clean up my eating and workout more. I'm not good at diets. I find as soon as I even think of the word diet, or cleanse I immediately need to start stuffing food in myself. I have always gained weight trying to do anything like that. The thought of being limited really freaks me out. Probably the same as someone telling me I need a capsule wardrobe! Ha ha!

    I am pescatarian which means I only eat fish and no meat, so I do eat quite well, but I still like some sugar and most certainly I love some chocolate.

    I used to take ballet classes ages ago and have thought about take some barre online. I've heard it is great for the arms. I should make some changes though regarding exercise. I'm not doing enough and now that I'm going to be 50 I've heard the weight just starts piling on around the waist.

    bisous

    1. It's interesting, I don't think I have every followed an official "diet." I always follow the rules of the cleanse though without problems. When I did it the first time I was worried I would feel deprived and rebellious, but luckily that didn't happen. I think it's because there are so many choices, and it's really about listening to your body, and there are no set foods you have to eat at a certain time. Also, the food is pretty similar to what I normally eat (just minus the not-so-good-for-me foods I sometimes eat...).

      I really love barre workouts. Years ago I had terrible low back pain (couldn't get up from a seated position), and with regular barre workouts, I have been able to keep the pain completely away. I believe it's because all the little muscles of your back are strengthened.

      Have a fabulous birthday getaway! You make 50 look absolutely fabulous!!!

  13. I do find that when it comes to a white jacket, I rather prefer one fashioned from denim actually because unless it's very well-cut, a non denim jacket in white can look really cheap and tacky :) plus the added benefit of a white denim jacket is that it can be dressed in so many different ways xoxo

    1. You are right, Sheela, you really have to look for a good white jacket! And, yes, denim can be worn so many different ways!

  14. I really like how you layered your striped hoodie under the denim jacket! I need to wear my white denim jacket more because it is such a versatile piece, especially during spring and summer. Best of luck on your cleanse and I hope you enjoy your month of barre.

    Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Hope to see you back next week.

  17. I didn't really think I would wear a white denim jacket all that much but boy was I wrong! It has definitely added lots of interest to my wardrobe and provided the perfect layer for so many of my dresses to keep me comfortable at work. Thanks for linking with Ageless Style!

  18. I love a white jacket and I'm also fond of my denim and cargo ones so I can't say which is my favorite. Your outfit is fabulous; classic but not boring. Thank you for sharing your wonderful style on my Up, Down, All-Around link-up.

  19. Andrea you have really been busy. I can barely drag myself out of bed this week. I love your jacket. I think it is preferable to a "serious" blazer because we live much more casually in the summertime. I am happy to hear that you are taking care of yourself and taking classes. My only form of exercise is swimming but the water is still too cold. Hopefully by the end of June. Don't want to get frost bite. lol

    1. Thanks, Mary! You are right, the denim jacket has proven very versatile. I work in a very casual environment and have been wearing it to work with dressier pants and tops as well as with casual outfits.

      Hope you get to swim soon!

  20. I've been wanting a white blazer too but I love your substitute of a white denim jacket. I'm also curious to hear how your cleanse goes. I checked out the website and it looks really interesting.
