You guys loved it, and you all wanted it.
Sad face. Again.
Second verse, same as the first.
It’s now time for Step 1.
Go ahead and FREAK OUT.
(Just fyi, if you have been KICKING YOURSELF for not getting this jacket before, you might want to just go ahead and scroll down to Step 2.)
It’s not bulky at all.
The drawstring waist is awesome.
So…I know what you’re thinking.
I like it, but would I really be able to wear it with that many things?
Um, yeah lady…..yeah you would.
This first picture is the latest time I wore it that is just now making it to the blog. This is the first time I had worn it buttoned up and tied at the waist, and I loved it this way too!
(If you are interested in my t-shirt in the picture below, you totally should be. Find it HERE. It is sooooo soft, has the cutest fit, looks great on it’s own, but is great for layering also. AND OH MY WORD…I JUST SAW IT’S ON SALE FOR $19.99!)
For size reference, my jacket is a small.
and a grey or black t-shirt.
And I was okay with that because I loved the jacket so much.
BUT BOY WAS I WRONG!
Look how cute it is when paired with RED!
Here I am in my long grey target tank (found HERE), my long Anthropologie t-shirt (sold out, sorry), my MUST HAVE LEGGINGS (found HERE) and Hunter Boots (found HERE).
And here’s another look!
With my MUST HAVE leggings HERE, my long sleeve grey tee is sold out but you can find a similar one HERE for under $25!, and my cognac wedge boots HERE that are still 40% off!
Super cute, right?
Here it is with the basic black shirt and jeans look (the look I initially thought was the only look that would work with it), just jazzed up a bit with the necklace.
I threw it on with my MUST HAVE shirt HERE, my MUST HAVE jeans HERE (non-distressed version), my Kimberly Necklace HERE, and my TOMS wedges HERE.
And look how FAB it is with a grey tee HERE for under $25, my mustard skinny jeans (sold out, and can’t find any good options) and my cognac wedge boots HERE (40% off!).
I would love this jacket even if the back were just plain.
Which just makes me love it more .
And apparently, it makes me want to wear it once a week.
It is such an AWESOME jacket, and I’m soooo glad I have it in my closet!
You will be too!
So, you see?
I mean, COME ON!
Are you DYING at the versatility?!?
(Okay. SUPER annoyed with myself. There’s a typo in the collage…”Jackets” is plural, but it should be singular. Oh well, I’m not changing it.)
If you already successfully completed the FREAKING OUT phase,
it’s time for Step 2!
ORDER THE JACKET!
Seriously, don’t miss out on this jacket again.
(Again, for size reference, my jacket is a small.)
And just because I feel like all of you need to know this asap, I got a new pair of shoes with some Christmas money!
Click HERE for the Converse that I just ordered for myself.
Make sure you order a 1/2 size down.
I’m a 6-6 1/2 depending on the shoe, and I ordered a 5 1/2 in these!
And you’re not going to believe this (except that you totally will), I already have 3 outfits pinned to recreate. One of the first outfits I’m going to recreate is going to be this one.
Light colored jeans, a white tee, my military jacket, and my converse HERE.
Click HERE for all women’s converse in lots of different colors.
I love the grey, the white, and the navy the most.
***Click HERE for converse no show socks that I’m ordering today.***
I wish they had plain white, but they don’t.
I’m going to have to get over it because they are NO SHOW after all.
