Happy Monday! I took a nice break from social media this weekend and it was wonderful! I took the opportunity to work on things that I’ve been putting off like getting paint samples for the kids’ room and exploring paint options for our master bedroom. I’m so terrible at decorating and picking colors that it takes me forever. But it needs to be done so I’m going to take my time and make sure it’s done right. We also booked a trip to the Caribbean so I got a head start on that and did a little shopping so that I’m not doing everything last minute. I don’t know about any of you other moms out there but living with all males, my kids and hubs, they leave everything up to me so I’m always the one running around like crazy. Anyway, I hope you all had a productive if not restful weekend.
Now, let’s talk about the outfit.
Cropped jackets have always been a favorite of mine because they add a certain amount of edge and class to an outfit. It also can easily take you from the office to an evening out in an instant.
Here I’m wearing a jacket that I got recently from ThredUp with this v-neck dress from H&M and a button-down ruffle shirt, similar here. I would classify this as more of a work look but could totally wear it to an after work dinner. When I saw the jacket on the ThredUp website, I was immediately drawn to it because I’ve been looking for another cropped jacket and this one was just perfect. The one thing that I love about ThredUp, it’s all about buying secondhand first and you can find amazing designer brands for a fraction of the cost. This is a Theory jacket and I got it for more than 80% off! That’s just unheard of and although it’s a secondhand piece, the jacket looks brand new. The material is more of a tweed feel with speckled spots of blue and white, and the quality is amazing! I can’t wait to wear it more this spring and it will certainly take me into fall and winter!
Have you ever scored amazing designer pieces from ThredUp? Let me know in the comments below. Since items from ThredUp are secondhand, the jacket is no longer available but I’ve linked some really cool cropped jackets below.
