The Only Time When Stealing Is Okay!

Hello everyone!

So there's only been one thing in my life that I've ever stolen... this jean jacket! Now, before you jump to horrible conclusions about me: I DID NOT steal this from a store! ;)

It was the last day the pool was open in the summer when my manager asked me to do something with the huge lost and found pile. I took all of the bleached clothing, broken googles, and crumpled up towels and sorted through all of them. I was pretty shocked when I found this adorable little jean jacket from Old Navy. Who would leave something so cute at the pool and not come back for it?! Well, I put it into the trash bag to go to the Salvation Army with all the other junk and didn't think much about it after that. My manager then asked if I could take the stuff to the Salvation Army drop off box, and I agreed. Just as I was about ready to throw the huge garbage bag into the donation box, I thought about the jean jacket and how I had really been looking for one lately. At the last minute I grabbed the jean jacket out of the trash and took it home with me!

Yes, technically I stole it but hey, I would have probably just found it at the thrift store and paid three bucks for it anyways. Or, maybe someone would have never even bought it. Yes, we'll go with that thought. I saved this jacket from hanging forever on a clothing rack, all alone :)

So, since the beginning of September I have had this jacket and was getting worried that I would never find anything to go with it. When putting together this outfit and wanting a little more ompf, I pulled out this jean jacket and it completed the outfit!

Hope everyone is doing great! Thank you all so much for the support on my last post about that persistent annoying anonymous commenter. You all are so amazing!

With much love, Lauren.

I actually think the jean jacket was the perfect thing to add to it and probably one of my favorite outfits! So stealing this was definitely not a waste!
