Hi, friends! Welcome back to Stylishly Good Vibes! I hope that your weekend was amazing and that you’re looking forward to the week ahead! I tried to go on a new exploration of my hometown this weekend, but unfortunately came up short because I’ve explored almost everywhere.
But, I still had fun going to places I’ve already been! It’s kinda crazy how bored I get during the winter in Cleveland. I can’t wait for spring and summer weather because that means way more things to do!
I’ve been daydreaming about what it will be like to see the trees with green leaves again. If you think about it, we sort of live in black and white during the winter in Cleveland. Then, when spring rolls around, we live in color. Don’t you think?!
Anyways, let me make my way back to the purpose of this blog post: jackets. If you’ve been following along on the blog, you know I’m a jacket hoarder. I don’t know what it is about jackets, but they are always the first thing to catch my eye when I’m shopping. Even in the high heat of summer, I always gravitate toward the jackets at my favorite stores.
My jacket obsession has left me with about eight jackets that I interchange depending on what I’m wearing and what the weather is doing. I know, a little bit intense. Although I definitely don’t think that everyone needs to have eight jackets in their closet, I do think there are three styles you should look to add for spring.
Let’s get started!
I’m absolutely obsessed with the color, baby blue. It’s just so soft and delicate—perfect for spring! When I found this moto jacket IN baby blue, I thought I was dreaming. It was kismet!
Now, I don’t know about you, but a black motorcycle jacket isn’t really my style. I think it might be a bit too edgy for me. So, when I was looking for a new one to add to my wardrobe, I knew it had to be different than what you traditionally think of with a moto jacket. That’s when I found this one!
I bought it at H&M in Myrtle Beach for $10! The one good thing I walked away with after living in Myrtle! Okay, that was mean, but not going to lie, I really didn’t enjoy living there LOL.
Alright, I think this particular style is essential for any spring wardrobe. You can pair it with ANYTHING. Well, anything but a button-down blouse. For the love of all good things in this universe, don’t wear a moto jacket with a button-down. It’s not a look—I’m sorry!
Have you ever bought something, got it home, and felt unsure whether or not it’s really your style? That’s how I felt with this jacket. I bought it because the price was too good and I knew it would coordinate with a lot in my closet, but I wasn’t sure if it was me. So, it sat in my closet for a while until I felt inspired to give it a try.
Since the day I decided to break it in, it has become a staple in my wardrobe. I love that it’s a cropped jacket. I think everyone should have at least one cropped jacket because it pairs well with dresses and tunics, which you know I love.
If you live in a cooler climate like Cleveland, you know that spring can be a bit temperamental. That’s why I love wearing this aviator jacket because the sherpa lining keeps me warm and cozy. Although I’ve had this jacket for about five years now, I don’t see a reason for getting rid of it.
That’s the thing about jackets—they should last you years of wear. If they don’t, then cross that brand or store off your list of places to buy from again.
Bright Faux Fur Jacket
It wouldn’t be a Stylishly Good Vibes post if I didn’t include some pink faux fur! This jacket is one of my most treasured pieces. Although it’s knee-length and faux fur, it’s actually a pretty light jacket. I like wearing it while I’m out on the town or walking around since it’s easy to move in and extremely comfortable.
For spring, you can definitely retire your heavy down jacket for this one. Above all, faux fur can still be worn in the spring as long as you shake it up with some color. However, be mindful of your color choice when it comes to a faux fur jacket. I think it can take a turn for tacky really quick, which is why color choice is CRUCIAL!
I would stick to pastels or more light, neutral shades if you are on the hunt for a faux fur jacket this spring. My faux fur jacket is from Nola True in Chagrin Falls and it was honestly the deal of the century. Pro tip: go shopping at places you’ve never been to before. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what you find!
Well, that’s all I have for you! I hope your week is amazing!
Until next time!
