AMPED UP ARMY (JACKET)

Hiiii, guys! Happy Friday!! Woo woo! So happy it’s the weekend and so grateful for the amazing weather we have been having here in SoCal. Spring has officially sprung and I could not be more happy! I have been transitioning my closet (moving all my sweaters and winter pieces to storage) and it’s just always so refreshing to see all the color and prints that come with this time of year!

Today is all about one of my favorite Spring trends, the amped up army jacket. Just with done-up denim, this season all of the designers are embellishing and adorning army/military jackets and it’s seriously so fun! I found this one, from Sundry, and fell in love with the super (like super duper) soft material and fun patches. I have worn this jacket so much more than I really thought I would! I have had it for just over a month and have in that time I wore it on the plane to and from Phoenix, with a black jumpsuit to dinner with friends and over a simple tee and distressed denim last Sunday. It really is a versatile and wearable piece that can be styled many ways.

For this look, I paired it with an uber girly (and super wallet friendly) lace top from Hinge and my favorite dark denim skirt from Grlfrnd (have I convinced you yet that you need a denim skirt this season? I promise you won’t be mad if you get one!) I always love mixing feminine and masculine and this pairing is just that. The edginess of the jacket totally gives some life to otherwise plain and simple lace top!

For shoes, I went with these lace up heels from Raye. I LOVE these (so much that I got them in tan too!!) They are way comfy and just a great size heel for day or night. I kept my other accessories minimalistic with this Gucci crossbody, these Ray-bans and these Gorjana hoops.

There are SO many fun versions of this trend out right now. Like I mentioned earlier, it really is a wearable piece that anyone can pull off. Since Spring weather can be all over the place, it’s a fun way to stay warm when needed! Here are the others I think are fab:

I hope you all have really great weekend! We are just dinnering tonight, watching the basketball games tomorrow with friends (go GONZAGA!! I bet on them to win all in Vegas and need them to pull through so I can get this dreamy Chanel bag I am obsessing over!!) and on Sunday we are going to bbq at one of our friends (the first one of the warm season, so excited!) Hope you guys enjoy yours!

Happy shopping! xo, Caro
