I saw this light Spring jacket while browsing through Anthropologie with Aubz. He made me try it on (he really had to twist my arm…), and it was instant love. I didn’t purchase it at that moment, because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend the money on it. After a few days, it was still constantly on my mind. A perfect light weather coat, especially for Los Angeles weather standards, and other than a couple of blazers (on the dressier side), I don’t have a light jacket.
The Skirted Anorak is a perfect neutral shade and will match everything that’s currently in my closet. It has a lovely ruffle along the bottom, a detachable hood, and lace cuffs. I really strive to keep my wardrobe simple, and will only purchase items that will enhance the items I already own. Especially with accessories, I don’t want to spend money on something that I’ll only wear with very few items.
I’ve created a couple of outfits that would pair well with this particular jacket (also something I like to do, to know that I can work a new item with my already existing clothes). The items below are either items I own, or items I have that are very similar.
