I adore this jacket. I almost didn’t post this look because I got this jacket 2 years ago from Gap, and I know how frustrating it is for me to show you items that you can’t actually go purchase. That being said, I like the general idea of this jacket and I think that everyone could use one “cool” light jacket for spring. It’s a great way to take a fairly understated outfit and up the style factor a bit.

Side note: I would like to take a second to point out that these are my “Holy Grail” jeans. Meaning they are, hands down, my favorite jeans in my closet. They’re also 20% off right now, which is fantastic. I love them because they’re dark, universally flattering and they’re a high rise. Not so high rise that they look weird, but high enough that they cover and slim the area below my belly button. They also cinch in my waist AND they don’t gap in the back when I bend over! All of the wins. I’ve also gained some stress weight recently and they still fit. (#truth) Hello, the joys of being female. Regardless, they have earned their right to be my favorite jeans.

We talk about wardrobe staples frequently here on the blog, and although I will go over that more this Wednesday in my last Closet Clean Out post, I thought I would use this outfit to demonstrate why I pick some of the things I do. These pants and this t-shirt have been featured numerous times on the blog and I do that for a reason- staples are called staples because they are just that- a staple. What’s the point in having a well-edited closet if you can’t wear the same things over and over again in different combinations?

The green Adidas and choker are my spin on this look, but you could do a long pendant necklace and ballet flats. Or a shorter necklace and cute ankle boots. I would probably pair this with a baseball hat if my hair was gross or if it was a windy day and I just didn’t want to mess with it. Start looking at outfits as individual pieces- so you can determine what you like, what you don’t, and what you would change. That makes it easier to say “I don’t like bright green sneakers, but I like the jeans, jacket, and t-shirt.” Just personalize the look by changing one or two items. Pinterest is great with things like this- you can take something you like and alter it to change it to a look that you love.I encourage you to take a look at a few Pinterest pictures that you like and see if there is anything you could do to personalize the look to make it fit your personality and style needs. In this specific look you could change the shoes out, the necklace or even swap out a blazer for my bomber jacket. If you would be interested in seeing a series of “one look – two ways” I could definitely start doing that. Just let me know in the comments!
