Styling a Utility Jacket

Jacket: Banana Republic, Shirt: Silence + Noise, Scarf: J. Crew, Jeans: Topshop, Shoes: BP
Happy Hump Day! So far the week has been pretty nasty and rainy here in the DC area but today it's absolutely gorgeous. I'm hoping this weekend it's sunny too BUT I looked at my weather app and there is randomly a snowflake for Sunday! How strange--it's been all 60-70 degree weather then out of no where it's going to snow on Sunday? Sometimes I hate spring in this area. So unpredictable!

There are a couple of specific clothing items that I consider to be "wardrobe staples" and a military/utility jacket is one of them! I really LOVE this one from Banana Republic because it's very lightweight and the material is super soft. The material is thin enough that if you want to throw on a heavier jacket over top, you're able to do that without it looking bulky. I actually think this jacket would look super cute during the summer too over a pair of high-waisted shorts!

Linking up with #WIWT!

  6. A military jacket is definitely a spring must have, and this one is really cute! Spring weather is always so strange, with the ups and downs in temperatures. Hopefully it will stabilize soon and stay warm!

  10. That is a great utility jacket! The material looks softer than the one I have. They are such a versatile piece. I almost always take mine when I travel because it goes with just about everything.

  14. You look beautiful as always, Kelly! I love the olive on you and that pink lip, LOVE! I actually really love the way pink looks with olive and this outfit perfectly demonstrates why, even though you have a slight touch of the color. I also love those booties, too. This is such a great outfit, girlie.

    I know, I can't believe that we're supposed to be getting snow either! Even if it's just a flurry, I thought we were done already! March can just never proceed without snow, can it?! Haha! I hope they're wrong on this one. Have a wonderful day, beautiful, and thanks so much for sharing!
