the jacket

I’m always a fan of a new way to wear denim, and this WhoWhatWear, under $50, denim jacket is absolutely perfect for spring and for layering in the fall. A few weeks ago, I shared this covetable Madewell denim coat, and told you how I had missed my chance to buy it last spring. Soon after I found the version I’m wearing today and ordered a medium. I ended up exchanging it for the size small, I think it runs big as I usually wear a medium. If I can stop wearing it long enough to take it to my tailor, I’m going to have a few inches taken off the length so it’s more flattering when I wear it with flats.

Denim jackets are a major trend right now, as I also found this sleek, under $100, version at the Gap as well. I love a long denim jacket for layering over dresses, shorts and a top, and jeans this spring. And they will look cozy and chic this fall over a chunky turtleneck or layered under a leopard coat. I’ve worn this jacket three times since I got it, and I think it’s perfect for casual layering, travel and everyday life.

the bag

I’m a longtime fan of Clare V., and I’m so excited to be one of their brand ambassadors again this spring. In January I got a peek at their spring collection before it launched, and was head-over-heels in LOVE with this snow cat foldover clutch. I seriously jumped for joy when it arrived at my door, and started carrying it immediately. Clare V. is offering this irresistible animal print in three other styles including an adorable coin purse for $65. I also have my eye on this circular min bag…cannot wait until it comes in later this spring.

the jumpsuit

One of my favorite pieces to wear while pregnant was my black jumpsuit by HATCH, and I’ve been wearing it a lot post-baby as well. HATCH makes all of their clothes for before, during and after baby, so I’m so glad to have a no-shame piece that I can enjoy way after baby as well. Layering with this jumpsuit has been so easy because it’s one pieces that I can just throw a long blazer, army green jacket or sleeveless trench over. It’s super soft and lightweight, so I feel like I’m wearing my pjs when I wear it.
