The Jacket

The hot jacket for the upcoming Spring season is definitely the Field Jacket (a.k.a. Utility Jacket, City Jacket, Surplus Jacket).  You can find them in nearly every store right now in varying lengths with varying details.  The weight of these jackets are perfect for the in-between weather where you still need that extra layer, but not a heavy one.  Plus, who doesn't love olive right now?!

When Old Navy was recently have a store-wide sale, both Stacie & I picked up this Canvas Field Jacket  & I have been wearing it non-stop since.  In fact, I wore it for our shopping date with Carylee & again this past weekend when I was introduced to thrifting with Mandy @MileHighThrifter (more to come on that later this week).

The above outfit is what I wore when I met Mandy for our shopping date.  The weather is warming up around here (finally) & this jacket was the perfect weight to keep me warm outside, but not make me overheat inside.  

The outfit below is what I wore last week for our meet-up with Carylee.  Again, the goal was to wear a jacket that I didn't have to take off & carry around while we were indoors.  The scarf was generously gifted to me by Carylee & was the perfect addition to my outfit (thank you sweet friend)!

As you can see from both outfits above, olive is really such a great neutral color.  Combine the versatility of this color with the perfect weight for Spring weather & it's no wonder these jackets are everywhere right now. They'll also be great for Summer weather when you need something for the chilly movie theater or restaurant.  Here are a few options from stores that we like to shop:

  1. I *just* saw this jacket in an Old Navy store over the weekend and noticed how cute it was! They did a great job on this piece and I love your outfit options with it. I was tempted to pick it up but had to remind myself I already have several olive jackets for spring. :/ But I love the rich olive color and the length of this one!

  4. Such a classic jacket. I have had one for years and it never seems to go out of style. Love the outfit!

  5. I wore my Old Navy utility jacket today because it was finally warm enough. Funny enough, when I was checking out at he grocery store, the little bagger lady (70s?) looked at me and said, "Oh, look at you in your cute little spring jacket."

  6. I really love that jacket, it's something you can definitely get so much use out of it! Olive green is on of my favourite colours too. Old Navy has some of the best finds, I like both ways you styled it.
