Fashion Friday – Cool Spring Evenings

Hello! Hello!

What a week.  I spent a few days helping the Hubs with a conference at his work. It involved us staying at the Biltmore Estate Inn for a few days, so no complaints there!  We got to do a little tourist in our own town stuff, including the Purple Bus, which is always a blast.  Make sure to follow along on Instagram.

You know how I said the Hubs and I needed some downtime the other week?  It’s because this summer is going to be a little crazy.  We put our calender’s together and it seems like there is already something on it every weekend between now and Labor Day.  Yikes!  Most of it involves fun things and lots of family, but it’s hard to keep up that kind of schedule for me.

Today’s Fashion Friday is from a cool evening in the mountains the other day.  Spring weather almost anywhere can be bipolar, but that seems especially true in the mountains.  You could need a heavy coat one day and flip flops the next.  The evening I took these pictures it was pretty windy and cool.  I probably could have gotten away with tights or jeans, but I really still wanted to look springy.

I decided to pull out my cowboy boots for one last appearance before putting them away for the season.

Cuffed Denim Jacket-62-4

I paired my favorite paisley summer dress (also seen HERE and HERE) with a denim coat.  The combination was just warm enough and still felt like spring.

I love rethinking pieces like this!  I’ve had this denim jacket for way too long to even mention, but every time I pull it out again it feels fresh.

I love boots and jackets, but I’ll be happy that warm summer nights are just around the corner.

Have a lovely weekend friends!

    Hi Julie
    Oh I miss Asheville! My nephew and his fiance moved from NY to Ashville, and we hope to in the future. I know what you mean about the summer coming so quickly and filling up! Sounds like you have fun things planned. Love your jean jacket with the pretty print and the cowboy boots give it a fun unexpected edge. Have a great weekend!
    Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday

    Such a cute outfit! I love the cowgirl boots with the dress. And denim jackets are such a timeless staple and look great with just about everything! I’m learning that Spring has issues everywhere right now. We had snow flakes less than 2 weeks ago and it is in the 80s now. It does make getting dressed quite tedious!

    Super cute! I love my denim jacket and can’t believe how much I have worn it- you simply must have one!

  4. I so need a denim jacket. I’ve been putting off getting one, but seriously with this bipolar weather I need one!

      Thanks Morgan! It’s been wacky lately. Hopefully it will start to warm up for good.

    We have a lot of events too and it seems we have SO much on the same days! I hate that because we’re even more rushed. In other news, I don’t own a jean jacket and I really want to get one!

      I think you need one! There are so many good sales this weekend.

  6. […] cool. (Insert a shout out to my friend and fellow blogger, Julie Wunder, of Running in a Skirt. Her Fashion Friday post this morning got me thinking…)  With Memorial Day weekend just around the corner, I […]

    I buy so many of my clothes at LOFT…their petites section rocks! This outfit is adorable! I need to get my hands on a good jean jacket.

      Yes! They have such good stuff.. and tall pants too 🙂

    Such a cute outfit!
    Around hear you can wear cowgirl boots through the summer, especially when the rodeo season starts:)
    Oh denim jackets are always a staple to any wardrobe. Matter of fact, I just bought a new one last week and I love it, they can almost be paired with anything:)

    • JulieWunder May 28, 2016 at 11:40 am - Reply

      I totally agree! Nothing better than boots and jean jacket!

    I’m doing my best to not have a jam-packed summer, but like you, it’s already filling up! Love the outfit, as always 🙂

    • JulieWunder May 28, 2016 at 11:40 am - Reply

      It’s crazy how that happens! I feel like I have to have personal black out dates 🙂

    Some nights at the Bil tmrw Estate sounds nice. Your boots look very nice w the your dress. And Jean jackets are so versatile.

    hehehe, I hope you have a lot of fun despite all the hectic-ness of everything! It was so awesome to meet you yesterday! :] That dress is super cute!

    Love the summary of western NC weather! It can make going from day to an eveni look a challenge if you don’t have time or the desire to completely change clothes. I, too, have that old standby denim jacket that feels very current in every season. Keep the tips coming!

  13. I have not pulled out the cowboy boots in a while! Gotta find those. Cute outfit

    There definitely should be no complaints there, lol. I have a great denim jacket that I didn’t even get to use last year because the entire summer was too cool. Also, we didn’t really do much going out. That is totally going to change this summer.
    Or, well, I hope it does! Have a great weekend, Julie!

      It’s such a summer staple! Hope you enjoy your weekend.

    A denim jacket is a total spring staple. It can really transform an outfit.

    combinations that work for you.
