Spring Jackets

One of my favorite things about spring fashion is the jackets. I have always loved jackets, in my opinion, they just complete any outfit. They are also perfect when you have chilly moments throughout the day. Here in the DC area, I think we have finally entered into the spring season. Que, all the cute jackets.

If you are looking for the perfect jacket for spring think about the type of spring weather that will take place in your area. It rains a lot here in the spring, and some days it’s cold, some days hot. So I like to find jackets that can either be layered over a sweater on those cold days or can be worn over a simple shirt. I also like to wear a lightweight faux leather jacket as well. Whatever your style, any jacket would work as long as you’re warm.

Also, think about the color of your jacket. You want your jacket to go with a lot of your outfits. For me, I picked olive, in the warmer months I wear a lot of navy blue. Olive will also look great with white, black, and even yellow, some of my favorite colors to wear in the spring or summer.

Hi Friends,

I am writing this message from sunny California. Frank and I came out here to attend some All Star Weekend activities. Prior to coming, of course, we had to pack, which is my favorite part of traveling. I know that is weird. I think most people are not a fan of packing, but I love it.

I decided to do a flat lay of one of the outfits I plan on wearing while I am there. Typically, when I pack, I like to take pictures of my outfits. It helps me to keep things organized. I have those pictures on my phone, but I look a mess in them and decided to avoid embarrassment and not post them 🙂

Be sure to keep a look out on how I style the outfits from my tip.

I talk a lot about being comfortable. I can’t express enough how important it is to me be comfortable on my casual days. I can’t imagine myself having a relaxing day wearing something like tight jeans. Torture!

I find myself constantly on the hunt for cute yet casual clothes. Enter the faux leather leggings. They have been a staple for me on the weekends since I have purchased them. Granted I am just wearing leggings, the different texture makes the look more put together which is my goal. I actually wore these pants a few post back, see them here.
