It’s February 2nd, and it’s time for us to Get Pin-spired!
My blue gingham shirt and one of my military jackets.
I’m just going to OWN the fact that I know I am constantly taking pictures in a military jacket.
And the reason for that is simple: I’m constantly in a military jacket. 🙂
Here’s a pic of me in the jacket and my gingham shirt with my little guy.
This boy has my whole heart.
He also has eyelashes that I think must have been meant for me.
Yep, I would say WITHOUT A DOUBT that the item in my closet that is most reached for (besides a pair of jeans) is one of my military jackets. Over the last 6 or so years I’ve collected 3 of them.
And here’s the deal. I wear all 3 of them.
They are all slightly different shades of green, and they all have slightly different cuts.
And no…I’m not crazy…I prefer the word “practical”…and a military jacket is a practical edition to your closet. Even if it’s your 2nd or 3rd one.
I have two that are short (one has a little peplum hem), and I have one that’s longer.
And I wear them all.
So here’s the outfit that pin-spired me today!

So, how did I do?
I wore blue gingham instead of black, because that’s what I had, but I liked it just as much.
And I wore non-distressed jeans because I CAN’T GET ENOUGH of my new MUST HAVE jeans.

And how fun is THIS shirt! Pink gingham could really help spring up your outfit!
I wear my blue gingham soooo much, adding a pink gingham to my closet isn’t a bad idea.
Nope, not a bad idea at all.
I bet it would be so cute with white jeans!
And look at THIS grey jacket!
I love grey and pink together, and this would be so cute with the shirt above for a different spin on the look!
So my jacket that I’m wearing in my look above is from Caslon and it’s almost 2 years old now.
But lucky y’all! Caslon has a 2015 version! And it looks awesome!
AND it comes in green, grey, and camo.

These military jackets are year round jackets. You can wear them in fall and winter with a long sleeve shirt and a scarf. And you can wear them in the spring with short sleeve tees and even tanks under them! To be honest, I carry mine around a lot even in the summer because I like to throw it on in movies and restaurants.
And great news! All of the below jackets can be found in plus size HERE!
I had put the above collage in a post a couple of weeks ago after a reader questioned me about the new Caslon jackets, and last week I finally got around to getting to Nordstrom to try the new ones on!
The left and the right ones can be found HERE.
The middle khaki one can be found HERE (and it also comes in navy, olive, and grey).
They are both Caslon, but notice that the middle one doesn’t have zippers up top.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the left and right jackets.
I’m wearing a medium in the khaki jacket.
And just FYI, I’m now officially HIGHLY RECOMMENDING the grey slip on sneakers.
Yes, they were very stiff the first day I put them on…..but now I’ve worn them on 3 separate days, and now I can say they are SUPER comfy. You just have to give them a chance!

*Before I show you all of your options, let’s take a second to recognize that most military jackets aren’t cheap. But girls, your cost per wear is going to be negligible.*
This one was super soft, and I really liked the gathered detail across the back. Very flattering!
You can also find this exact jacket in plus-size HERE.

As I mentioned before, I also have a long military jacket, and I love that one too! Sometimes I just want to wear a longer jacket!
