Best Spring Layer: The Utility Jacket

Cute Spring Outfit A Blonde's Moment

Happy Monday, friends! Now that we are halfway through March, I'm hoping to see only spring temperatures in the upcoming forecasts! On that note, today I am wearing the best {and one of my favorite} spring layers: the utility jacket. A style that seems to come back each and every year that is easy to style a number of ways, my favorite being with jeans, espadrilles and a sweater.

One of the reasons I love the utility jacket so much is because you can throw it on with just about anything for an extra layer. And with the crazy temperatures we have been experiencing, an extra layer is a total necessity! Usually, I pair THIS jacket with a short or long sleeve tee, but when I wore this out to a casual dinner Saturday evening, it was pretty cold {with a massive rain storm approaching as we were taking these pictures!} so I decided to wear a light weight sweater. Pair it with your favorite sandals {THESE have been on serious repeat for me when there hasn't been snow on the ground!} and you have a comfortable and casual weekend look!

I hope you all have a great start to the week! Stop by tomorrow for an all new make ahead, freezer friendly breakfast recipe. As always, thanks for dropping by and see you tomorrow!

  19. What a lovely utility jacket, girlie, I love the fit and of course the olive color, which looks so good on you! I love the look of olive and grey together this time of year, they pair together so perfectly. I have yet to find a utility jacket like the one you're wearing, which is one I'd love to add to my outerwear collection. The one I have has leather sleeves, which is cool, but I love a more cohesive style, like this! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and happy first day of spring!

  21. Love your jacket , looks great with your jeans.
