My Favorite Spring Jacket






 green utility jacket {mine is last season, this is current version} | similar shirt {mine is old!} | Current/Elliott jeans {my very favorite!} | leopard pumps, sold out {similar style & only $80} | pearl earrings | Tory Burch tote {updated version} | Kate Spade watch | Karen Walker sunglasses | lipstick {creme cup}, lipgloss {turkish delight}

Happy St. Patrick's Day! The warmer temperatures we have been experiencing the last week have me thinking all things spring. Alas, the weather has different plans with snow flurries in the forecast for Sunday. Snow flurries?! How is that even possible when we had temperatures in the 70s yesterday? Since we do have a few weeks left of these crazy, fluctuating temperatures, there is one thing that needs to get on my mind: layers.

Layering with a lightweight jacket is the best way to combat this awkward spring weather. And with so many spring jackets to choose from, there aren't many things that beat this utility jacket in my closet. I bought this utility jacket last spring {I've linked the current version of this same jacket above} and I literally have worn it each season. Pair it with shorts on a cool summer night, riding boots in the fall, layered over a chunky sweater for winter {you may remember it from my #snowzilla post} and of course in the spring with a light shirt.

Not only is it season versatile, but it's also closet versatile! The green is a great neutral {it also comes in a khaki} and can easily be worn with jeans, white jeans, name it, you can probably wear this jacket with it! I also love the idea of pairing it with a floral dress or more feminine pieces -- the perfect way to achieve a fun juxtaposition!

Spring jackets are a great way to transition into the new season, and there are so many cute styles to pick from right now! I've included some of my favorites below for you to browse, and they are all under $100! What is you favorite jacket for spring? I don't know about you, but denim jackets definitely come in a close second for me ;)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm hoping to possibly see some of the Cherry Blossoms {peak bloom is happening soon thanks to the warm weather!} and catch up on some food posts this weekend to share with you in the coming weeks. See you Monday!

P.S. If you are looking for some St. Patrick's Day recipes, here is a great, simple dish for dinner and a fun treat!
