Jackets can really take an outfit to the next level. And next level for this outfit means it makes the outfit more causal. Cause I'm ALL about casual right now, as seen in basically all my posts. I promise I'll have a dress post in a few weeks. But as a new mom tennis shoes seem to be what I live in. So I might as well add a causal jacket to complete the look. That's why this Varsity Jacket is the perfect addition to my closet.
The varsity jacket has made its come back outside of the halls of your high school. However, the jackets we see on the store racks are a little simpler. No big bold decals on the back of the sports you played, the designers opted for a plain style. I don't think I could rock this jacket if it had a big letter on the front breast pocket. I tend to buy most of my "trendy" items like this one at Forever 21or H&M. I picked up this one on sale from Forever 21. I was hoping to wear it this spring, but it has been in the high 70s around here lately so I haven't needed it.
Now lets talk these shoes......
I wish I could rock some Converse, but I can't. I have super high arches and they KILL my feet. Plus no matter how long I wear them I can NEVER seem to break them in. They tear up the back of my heels and leave blisters ALL over my feet. So I was in search of a cute pair of tennis shoes to wear with jeans. My girlfriend in LA showed up wearing these shoes over Thanksgiving and I went out that week and bought the same pair. Flash forward 5 months and I am now on my second pair. New Balance has a lot of this style, but I got both my pairs from J.Crew.
