I bought this jacket on a whim a few weeks ago, quite frankly because of the price! I’m the resident “el cheapo” of the Mom Edit team and I couldn’t resist this adorable jacket for under $50! I was worried it might be . . . well, cheap . . . but I was pleasantly surprised when it came! The thing I love about this jacket (aside from the awesome color) is the fact that it’s so lightweight and drapes so well. It adds just touch of warmth (like when you go to a wedding and end up having to wear your husband’s suit coat because it’s freezing with the air conditioning) so it’s perfect for spring and summer. I’ve worn it with dresses, jeans and shorts and have loved it with all of them. (Here’s how I wore it with boyfriend jeans.)
Dress: Alejandra Sky Lace Dress
Clutch: (Similar) Open Sky
Lotion: Lorac TANtalizer (I wanted to include a link to my favorite lotion for the summer . . . it bronzes legs and camouflages minor discolorations and spider veins without being too orangey or sparkly!)
I also highly recommend the dress and shoes I’m wearing. The shoes were actually pretty comfortable (wore them to the wedding we went to . . . ceremony, dinner and then danced in them!) and the dress is one of my new favorites. The only problem is you can’t wear a normal bra with it (but this strappy one would actually look pretty awesome underneath!) and it’s (obviously) not nursing friendly. (We came home in between the ceremony and the reception so I could feed Greenlea . . . I unbuttoned the top and was basically topless in our living room . . . a nursing cover probably wouldn’t work in public . . . HA).
