OOTD: Denim Update

London calling! Just kidding this is just a mural we found behind a shop in Ames, IA. But, I am loving how bold and bright the British flag is up against this neutral look. 

Recently, I've been wearing my denim jacket a lot. I haven't pulled it out in ages but I am finding more and more ways to wear it and make it new. My favorite way is to wear it as a shirt and pair it with high waisted skirts. I also layer statement necklaces under the collar to add a pop of sparkle. By pairing the simple denim jacket with this bold printed skirt I created a fun spring time look perfect for running errands, heading to class on a beautiful day, or a girls day shopping! 

I mixed this larger oval print with a small polka dot print on my Ked's sneakers. During the spring and summer I love pairing skirts and dresses with adorable little sneakers. Not only are they more comfortable to walk in, but they create a more relaxed look. Ked's are a personal favorite of mine. However, I picked up an awesome pair from Cath Kidston in London that I can't wait to wear more! 

This British bag is one of my favorite pieces I picked up while abroad. It's from the Cambridge Satchel company that creates awesome satchel bags. I picked this one up at their Covent Garden store location but you can also order them online and ship them to the U.S.! The best part about these bags that you can add your monogram. Monograms make everything better! My mom picked one up as well and she loves it. Mothers Day gift idea? Yes! 

I accessorized my bag with some fun keychains. The pink and red one is from the Longchamp store in Paris, another item I picked up on my travels. Then the silver circle is an Mickey Mouse eye emoji face from Stoney Clover Lane's Disney collection. You can only shop the collection at the Four Seasons in Orland (near Disney World), but it is so worth the special trip!
