The Perfect Spring Jacket

I did it you guys – I bought the jacket! I’d been eyeing this faux suede beauty from Zara for a while now, and I like to justify unreasonable cravings during the month of March by calling it my “birthday month” (lame excuse #1). In my defense, Austin was getting slightly chilly (low 70s…and maybe even 60s – the horror!) and I needed a Spring jacket to keep me warm (lame excuse #2).

Let’s be real – it’s a stunning piece for the price. I love the baby blue faux suede – it’s a nice alternative to a denim jacket which is more typically the jacket of choice for the Spring. I also like the cropped biker style and silver hardware.

I wanted this look to be centered around the jacket, but I got my hands on these mom jeans from Asos (another birthday month crime) and decided to pair them together. These jeans fit like a glove! I hope they stock up in other sizes soon in case you’re interested – I got lucky that my size (W24 L34) was the only one that wasn’t sold out. I wore a simple basic white tee and added my go-to neutral mules for a casual weekend look.

Also, I want to share that I was the winner of a giveaway hosted by two of my favorite bloggers – Brittany of Thriftsandthreads and Louise of FrontRoe! I won a Versace Palazzo Empire bag – I was so shocked when I got the message on my Instagram and cannot wait to receive it! The fact that I won out of possibly 50,000 people that entered makes me believe that being positive and spreading good vibes works its way right back to you 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my extra chatty blog post, and have a great weekend! 😀
