Jean Jacket: A Natural Match to Vintage Jewelry


So...when you're out antiquing, thrifting, garage saling, do you ever come across a little bit of vintage bling that you know you like -- but can't imagine actually wearing on an outfit?

Go ahead and buy one, all you have to do is imagine it on your jean jacket.

My jean jackets (I have three right now) are my go-to wardrobe item: paired with jeans, khakis and at times even a dress pant or skirt.

I think this pin looks extra spiffy on the faded blue background.


I've got cherries, too, they're over the top! And my sis? She likes Scotty dogs on her lapel.


I'm not up on all things fashion, in fact, I hate mall shopping with a passion. I only go if I need to; but jean jackets and fresh vintage pins say "COUNTRY FRESH" and "FARMHOUSE SASS" to me, and I can get behind that.

It's all fun, and it makes hunting for them one of life's little pleasures.

I have done the exact same thing! I also tuck a bit of a lacy edged hanky in the pocket! LOTS of compliments when I wear my jean jacket.

I've always loved jean jackets! In fact, I remember my very first one. It was stolen while hanging on the coathooks out in the hall at school. I was heartbroken. But I've had many since then, and I just love how you can dress them up or down!

Very very cute! I too am not a big fan of mall shopping. As a matter of fact, I'd wear all vintage all the time if I could find things in my size. I guess all the women were Skinny Minny's back then.

Adorable! I collect vintage cat and horse pins. I have Lucite horse pin that belonged to my grandmother. I treasure that!

Here is the link to the post about how we ended up in Tn with our whole "crew"!

Have a wonderful day, Joni :)

Denim jackets never go out of style -- that's how I view it and dressing it up with a pin MORE the better -- wink!

Love the the bling with denim. I just 'dug' out an old crystal pin to photograph the other day and while I had it out thought to myself that it would look great on my jean jacket. If you've got a little bling-old or new-and denim, what els do you need?

The cherries are adorable!

I used to wear a jean jacked all of the time. I don't know why I stopped but I think a trip to the resale shop is in my near future! I love the thought of wearing a cute pin on it! Thanks for the idea!

I'm with you on the mall shopping....hate it too....I would rather sort through a junk sale anyday! I love my jean jacket(s)! I have a few, and I've had them for years, I think sometimes when I buy a new one that I'll part with the old one but it never happens lol! I love the idea of the vintage jewelry, I'll have to pull out my grandma's pins...thanks for the idea, I love, love, love your cherry pin, too cute! Loved this post.

I love love love the jean jacket post!!! I had to laugh out loud AND pass my computer over to my girls to see it. They always tease me because I love "brooches". They tell me they're out of date, for old people, blah blah blah. NOT SO!!! Thanks for bringing "my" wanna be fashion statement back to life! :0)
