Our warm weather has suddenly taken a cooler turn. I really wanted to wear my new Birkenstocks and show off my Mother's Day pedicure so a light jacket was a must! I've had an olive military or utility jacket on my radar for a while now and really like the look of this one from WalkTrendy. The fit is just the loose enough and the embellishments on the pocket add a fun, feminine touch. The fabric is a little stiff, but I'm hoping a wash and dry cycle will give it that lived-in look like on the website. It will be great this summer for nights by our fire pit with a pair of shorts, too!

  1. All winter, I was kinda so-so on the military jacket but now that spring temps have hit, I'm obsessed with it. I really need to grab one because I've been wearing my denim jacket out. It needs a break!!

  9. So many good pieces in one post! Love the pop of pink with the bag in contrast to the military jacket. Birks are such a good comfort shoe, so I am thrilled they are in style.

  13. I was considering making my end of semester present a pedicure, but a handbag won me over instead. It's so nice that the weather is perfect for Birks :)

  18. Fun jacket! I have a question too, when you say c/o thredup does that mean you are working with the company or simply using credits? I don't c/o things from thredup since its credits, just curious.

  23. Such a great casual look. I love the gems on your army jacket pocket - it makes the jacket so unique. And, your birkenstocks are the best. I need to get mine out for the season. Thank you for linking up with SHOE AND TELL on Style Nudge!
