Must-Have Spring Jacket
Greetings ladies! Happy Thursday!! I’m not sure what was going on with me this week, but boy am I feeling better today! I actually got out for the first time yesterday, do you ladies hibernate inside when you are sick? I can remember when I would have to be nearly dead to stay inside with a cold. Now, I’m like, “Oh my…I can’t get anyone sick!” Wish Raegan had of thought that! Come to find out she was using my inhaler while she was sick. Well…she certainly spread those germs with love! KIDS!!!! (smile) We love ’em…but LORD!
I stopped by my local Cato a few weeks back and picked up a few pieces that I could use to transition into Spring and I am styling a cute utility jacket today. It’s really cold here right now in North Carolina, so going outside taking pictures looking “Springy” just ain’t in the cards for this ole gal.
Today I decided to go with this cute Linen Utility Jacket from Cato. The color is Walnut and it cinches at the waist and has the option to roll your sleeves up or leave them down. This is a thin jacket, almost like a heavier button-down shirt and it snaps down the front.
I would have purchased a Large since I’m a little broad-shouldered, but they only had a Small and XL, so I opted for the XL. I didn’t try it on, but I figured it would be roomy enough for me to wear with any type of shirt or thin sweater underneath. It fits TTS and I could have worn a Large easily. Since you can cinch the waist to make it smaller, I did that to give me a better fit through the mid-section. It’s only $29.99 and you can get it HERE.
I’m not going to lie, ladies, finding anything that was comparable was really hard. Everything is running from $59 to over $300, so I’m feeling like I got this one at a bargain price!
The jeans I am wearing are from JustFab called the Button Front Vintage Slim Cuff Jeans in Aqua Frisa. These are on sale now for ONLY $15.98, they are 60% OFF girls! They fit true to size and the length comes right above my ankle, I’m 5’7″. They cuff is sewn in and it has a ragged hemline to it. These are perfect for Spring and Summer, they aren’t really thick jeans, and they have “give” in them. Get the Cuff Jean HERE. Also, the button up feature looks really cute with the half-tucked shirts or sweaters.
I love to layer my jackets with a comfy t-shirt and I found the perfect one from Amazon. It came with my Amazon Prime Wardrobe Box and trust me, as soon as I tried them on I knew they were keepers! These are called the Daily Ritual Women’s Midweight 100% Supima Cotton Rib Knit Short-Sleeve V-Neck T-Shirt, 2-Pack. These come in a variety of colors, stripes, and solids. The best thing about this t-shirt is not only it wears GREAT – you get 2 t-shirts for only $20!! Ten dollars a tee…heck yeah- HIGH FIVE GURLS! Get the T-shirt HERE and see the multiple colors.
I broke out my loafers from Sole Society to finish off the outfit, these are called the Jessica. I have worn these so much since I got them, they are comfortable and look great with jeans and very pretty with white pants. These would look great incorporated into your workwear also. They come in leopard print, bisque and dusted plum, they are very popular and cost around $89.95. I did use the AfterPay option when I purchased these. They will split your payments up to 4-6 weeks into payments. Although the same amount is coming out of my account, it doesn’t hurt as much when it’s small amounts, HA HA!!! Get the Loafers HERE. I found some very similar to these from JCPenney by A.N.A for only $18.99. Get those HERE. I do not know how these wear, so I can’t give you a review, but they seem to be very popular. You can get them for $14.24 if you use this CODE 21GOSHOP for a limited time only.
I didn’t want to wear a lot of jewelry with this outfit so I decided to go with a trendier look. I decided on the Suede Plate Bracelet, it comes in Charcoal or Camel, I am wearing the Charcoal and I had it personalized with John 3:16. To get the Suede Plate Bracelet Click HERE. I paired it with the Sable Italian Leather Bracelet, I personalized it with ‘Beautiful Chaos”. I literally wear this leather bracelet almost every day! It’s $39 and you can get it HERE. What I like about these 2 particular pieces is I made them my own with personalization. Remember, you can monogram, add names, dates, symbols…the sky is the limit!

You girls see Kilo up there in that picture? That is Chase’s dog and that ole boy will follow me everywhere I go. I thought Ziva was bad…she’s MY Goldendoodle, notice I emphasized MY! LOL!! Both dogs are very needy in the attention department. Although I am fond of my grand-pup, my Jeep riding buddy is Ziva…my heart!!! She’s right below. Thought I would share them since a lot of you have pets and grand-pups!

Very cute outfit! Ziva and Chase are both cute! One usually has your heart! I am a new subscriber linked to you from Tania.
Awe!! Thank you!!! I’m so glad you started following!! Love Tania!! She is the best!!
I’m sorry but it is kind of cute that you found out your granddaughter probably passed on the sick bug to you..gotta love them that’s for sure but I’m glad you are feeling better. Such cute jeans and my first thought was that “I” would not be able to wait til the last minute to get to the bathroom with having to undo four buttons…LOL Such a cute casual outfit and I love what you put on your bracelets. Ziva looks like a soft teddy bear.
Ziva is a soft teddy bear!! Lol. Those buttons pop off quick -I tested them out 🤣🤣. Yeah, you gotta love those kids. Sighhhhh. Raegan! Bless her Lord 🤣 it was funny, not at first though
I had to pin this outfit. Looks casual yet put together. And love the shoes. Sole Society shoes are so comfy they are worth the price in my opinion. Who wants aching feet?! Ordered more jewelry. Had to have the necklace you wore in yesterday’s blog. Quick question. Although I mark box to save my email and name after comments it never does. Any suggestions?
I don’t know why that’s doing that-mine does that on Tania’s Page. I will research that and find out. You’re right about the shoes, I will pay more so my feet won’t hurt! I love those shoes!! And the necklace 🙌🏼you are going to love it!! I love all my JBloom!! Lol. Thanks for pinning!! I really like this look!! Thanks Johnna!! 🤗. I will let you know what I find out about the comments
Glad that you are finally feeling better! I took the Hubs to the ER this morning because he has been experiencing such bad stomach pain, cramping, discomfort. We found out that his colon is inflamed so hopefully he will be on the mend soon. After having him home for this entire week I don’t think that I can take much more of not getting anything accomplished on my to-do list. Anyway, love the jacket and your outfit today 🙂 I especially love those fur babies!! We have 3 dogs and 4 cats (all rescues) and we wouldn’t know what to do without them.
Bless your heart and your husbands!! I know how you feel, I can’t get anything done when Barry is here. Sometimes these dogs can be challenging but boy do they make your life richer! Thanks for the thumbs up on the outfit. I just got some 1 inch espadrilles in today that I think you will LOVE!!! I will be posting about it soon. Have a great day Kelly!!
