I feel like this fall and winter was the year of camo, and guess what, I’m not stopping this trend anytime soon! I had purchased a camo jacket while I was in California last January and I wore it all the time. Well, fast forward to this past fall and they were everywhere. I saw this one but knew that I wasn’t going to pay $120 for this jacket when I knew I had one so similar at home. So, I waited. And if you know me, you know how impatient I truly am. It’s a good thing and a bad thing… but this time I waited and it clearly worked out in my favor because I got this beautiful jacket on sale for $42! Yup, what a steal! Good news: It’s still on sale, but sizes are limited, so you’re going to want to get your hands on it while you can.
The great thing about this jacket is that you can truly style it in so many ways. Pair it with a t-shirt dress, a cute top and skirt, with joggers and some sneakers, or over a sweater with some denim like I have here. Pattern play is also a really big trend right now, so don’t be afraid to mix this camo jacket with some some stripes, polka dots or anything else you have in your closet. I chose to pair it with my favorite distressed sweater from Dress Up (that is unfortunately sold out, so I linked similar options) to help showcase the jacket more. I couldn’t forget to add my favorite pair of distressed jeans, also from A&F, and my go-to booties from Dress Up. Last, but certainly not least is this absolutely adorable bucket bag from Dress Up. Are you seeing a trend here? Dress Up and Abercrombie? Oops! I definitely wasn’t looking for a new bag when I came upon this baby. I decided to stop in one of their stores one night after drinks with MMG (uh oh) when I laid eyes on it and instantly picked it up to purchase. It also helped that I had a coupon code that was about to expire… If you haven’t noticed lately, I’ve been obsessing over all things blush pink; it doesn’t matter what it is, if it’s blush pink, I probably want to buy it lol! While I didn’t need another purse (if you saw my purse collection from the years you’d be sick), but I mean, it couldn’t hurt, right? Plus, I had my eyes on a very similar one to the tune of over $500, and I was not about to pay that. The bag was under $40, before my coupon, and it came with an additional crossbody inside (which I didn’t even notice until I got home lol). Needless to say, I’ve definitely got my money’s worth because I carry it every single day, pretty much, as my work bag (plus my big purse lol). I think I’ll keep carrying this one for a while!!
