I Love Cargo Jackets For Spring Summer
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. After a couple of weeks of having fall like weather in Los Angeles, we finally got back to our normal 90-degree temperatures here over this last weekend. I was getting ready to meet a friend for lunch last Friday and it was still a bit overcast and cloudy, so I thought it was a perfect chance to wear my favorite Cargo/Utility jacket that I have had for many years which never goes out of style. I purchased this “Comptoir Des Cotonniers” cargo jacket a few years ago when we were in London visiting my husband’s family. It is a French brand that has stores in many major European cities and I believe they do have one in Soho in NYC, but unfortunately none in Los Angeles area.
As soon as I saw it, I really liked the color and the design details and I knew I would get a lot of use out of it especially in Los Angeles. It is a 100% cotton khaki color fabric, which is the perfect casual jacket to throw on when there is a little chill in the air or it’s a bit windy. Even though you can wear it with many colors like black or denim, I personally love mixing it with white. This is why I chose to wear it with my distressed white jean skirt from Zara, which I bought last summer. This was also a great chance for me to wear my brand new Sam Edelman wedges which are currently on sale (you can find the link below). When it came to accessorizing it, many colors came to my mind that would work like yellow or orange but again my favorite was turquoise. I love mixing white/tan/turquoise together especially for spring/summer. I added our brand new turquoise stone necklace that has a tan leather fringe and our beautiful leopard scarf in a white/turquoise combo, both of which are perfect accessories for spring/summer.
Before I sign off for today, I wanted to say that I am super excited to be going to New York City this Friday with my son for a fun filled summer trip. The Last time I went was over two years ago during summer to look at colleges with him and we had a blast. When I asked him recently if he wanted to have a short trip with me to NYC this summer, I was pleasantly surprised to get a “sure” right away. We both love NYC, the energy, the sites, the food, and of course the shopping. I also have a niece that lives in Astoria so it would be nice to see her as well. I will not have my normally scheduled blog story next Tuesday since we will still be in NYC, but I will have a blog story about the trip by next Thursday.
I wish you all a great week and don’t forget to let me know what you think of my outfit.
