All You Need is a Light Jacket

April is quickly becoming my favorite month of the year. We’ve had
gorgeous weather the past few days – it hasn’t been too cold or too hot.
All that I’ve needed is a light jacket! I hope you’re all catching on to my movie reference here.  

dress: Old Navy (exact) | jacket: H&M (similar & similar) | shoes: Gap Outlet, old (similar) | necklace: New York & Company, old (similar & similar) | belt: American Eagle, old (similar) | sunnies: Coach Factory Outlet (exact)

anorak has been my go-to spring jacket lately – it provides the perfect
amount of weight and warmth during the chillier days, and I love that I
can cinch it in to give myself a more defined waist. If you also
remember from this post, my love affair with this casual dress is still going strong – now I just need a pair of tanned and toned legs to go with it.
Shop the look:
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

    What a great springtime look! I've also been enjoying the warmer weather lately — it's so nice to swap my winter jackets for lighter layers!

    Can I just tell you that at work today my asst manager was talking about how this jacket that we have is on the "slow seller" list and it's similar to the one that you're wearing. You just gave me an idea on how we might able to style it so that we can sell it! Thank you so much lady!! Hope that you had a nice day today and I 100% agree with you on the weather!! πŸ™‚

    I hope you can find it! It's so comfortable and a great length – I'm so self-conscious about my thighs/legs in shorter dresses, but I don't feel uncomfortable in this one at all.

    I couldn't agree more! I don't think people truly understand what those of us who live in the Midwest go through every year waiting for this weather. πŸ™‚

    Thanks, girl! Styling people is kind of my favorite thing to do, so maybe we'll get to do that someday. πŸ™‚ I couldn't find the jacket online, but I'm sure H&M is still selling it – for $50, it's a fantastic jacket.

    We have a wedding in a couple weeks, and after looking at these pictures, I definitely think I need to invest in some self-tanner for my legs! Sheesh … but, at least the temperatures are finally warming up. I'll take one battle at a time!

    You and your words are so sweet, thank you! I can't recommend the dress enough – it's so comfortable!

  12. 4.14.15

    Thanks, girl! And, I know – it's so hard not to love this weather since we waited so long for it!

  13. 4.14.15

    That jacket has been worn nonstop around here, too! I'm loving this jacket weather.

  14. 4.14.15

    Thanks, girlie!

  15. 4.14.15

    Awe, thanks girl! That jacket definitely has been worn on repeat since I got it. And, thank goodness the Midwest finally is getting some of your Florida weather goodness!

  16. 4.14.15

    It really is! It has three-quarter length sleeves, too, which I love for the transitional temps.

  17. 4.14.15

    You are so sweet, thanks lady!

  18. 4.14.15

    I'm so with you – thanks, girl!

    Well, I'd probably take the 90 degree weather over a light jacket any day! πŸ™‚

    We had the same kind of weather on Sunday and it was glorious, my idea of a perfect date too πŸ˜‰ I love that dress so much – I'm going to have to see if they stock it around here, it looks like the perfect length and a great pattern for dressing up or down! Fabulous look!

    Love your new coat paired with your versatile dress. I'm with you on the legs girl – my pore midwestern winter legs are pretty sad right about now! But this weather has been amazing!
