The Jean Jacket, A Fall Staple for Only $5.99

I don’t know if it is officially fall or winter!?!  The weather here has been crazy, sunny to torrential down pour to snow.  I never know what to wear!  I am loving this over-sized jean jacket from the Salvation Army Thrift Store. It works well on warm days or layered with a sweater for those chilly times.

 

I owned the same jean jacket for years and actually donated to the Salvation Army Thrift Store before purchasing this new one!  Did you know if you donate you can get a $10 off coupon if you spend over $25 at the Salvation Army Thrift Store?

Jean jackets are classic and always a great investment as you can style them across many seasons.  Can you believe I scored this one for $5.99 at the Salvation Army Thrift Store?  A great investment.  The cut works really well as I wanted a jean jacket that was slightly bigger.

FRUGAL FASHION FRIDAY: The Classic Jean Jacket

Jean Jacket: $5.99 (Salvation Army Thrift Store), Black Shirt: $15 (Forever 21), Green Pants: $29 (Joe Fresh), Black Leather Shoes: $125 (Frank + Oak)

TOTAL: $174.99

You know I love a great deal, but I am also about living my best life (on a budget).  If you minus the shoes from this outfit total I only spent $49.99.  I think footwear is an investment piece.  I only have a handful of shoes but they are quality because I wear them all the time.  I know by spending $125 on Spanish made leather shoes they will last at least a couple years.  I have tried to go the cheap shoe route in the past and they only last the season, that is not a smart investment in my opinion.  I know not everyone can afford $125, but maybe make a plan to save for footwear and only purchase one per season or a couple each year.  You’ll thank me and so will your feet.
