Happy February gals! So raise your hand if you are officially over winter? My hand is nice and high right now because this girl needs some spring weather and dresses back in her life. Yes, please! However, until we are able to break out our sandals and swing dresses, we are talking about jackets and how to add pops of colour to your looks.
Ah, jackets. Probably one of the more versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe, which is always a score. Most jackets are able to slide season to season depending on their colour and material. When purchasing a jacket, I normally try to make sure I would be able to wear it at least for two seasons. Throughout the summer, I normally stick to my light leather or a cardigan.
Always, always, always try on jackets before buying them.. if you purchase them online, that is perfectly fine, just make sure to check the stores return policy. Reason for this? Personally, I feel all jackets/sizes/brands fit differently. Some may be too tight in the back, too short in the sleeves, or too “awkward” on your body type. Best thing jackets (and all items of clothing) should be.. comfortable. If you do not feel comfortable, put it back. Don’t forget to add in my four Ps of purchasing while making your selection!
For this look, I kept my burning red jacket as my pop of colour and statement piece. Unfortunately, I grabbed this BA jacket at an Express outlet so it is no longer available.. HOWEVER, I found another super fab dark red option, here.
Gals.. do NOT, and I repeat, do NOT be afraid of colour. I know, it can be totally scary at times, but once you do it, you won’t turn back. Wearing colour is like eating chocolate.. once you do it, you have to go back for more! 🙂 Start small.. add a pop with your jewelry or even a handbag. When wearing a big colorful statement, like a red jacket, keep the rest of your look simple.
Therefore, I kept my top simple with a grey tank from American Eagle, click here for another colour option since grey is not available. These tanks are insanely soft! I paired my tank with the adorable AE white cropped jegging, click here for the jegging.. the most comfortable Sam Edelman pumps in navy, find them here.
I am carrying my signature Whipping post tote, absolutely obsessed. Find my exact tote here or a cheaper option here. Added details with my girl, Kendra Scott. Her earrings are here in so many colours.. For my necklace, I purchased it at Four Sisters, so here is another style that I love! & finally.. my beautiful cuff! Mine is from the Disney Inspired company, Lillian & Co.! Like all Disney products, they sell out so quickly, so here is another saying that I have my eye on! Okay, let’s be honest, I would wear all of them. If you are not a Disney fan, here is another similar style.
Here are other options you can find to wear this look..
Next week, we are talking all about Valentine’s Day! #HeartEyeEmoji
See ya Monday!!
