Spring Staple: Anorak Jackets

LOFT Blush Anorak Jacketimage via LOFT

Not trying to jinx anything here, but this week, I’m officially storing my winter coats for hibernation.  It’s time to break out the lightweight outerwear and while I love myself a classic trench coat, I have my eyes on a different kind of jacket this season: the anorak.  It’s part utility, but full on fashion with plenty of ways to wear it.

First up: a flirty feminine look.  I’m loving the blush anorak jacket from LOFT, but Topshop makes a great alternative.  Pair it with a white lace dress and a pair of strappy wedges and you’re basically the epitome of spring.

I also dig the laid back look and nothing’s more classic than a color combo of navy, white and cognac.  Throw on a pair of Chucks (I’ve owned mine for over a decade!) and it doesn’t get much easier than that.

What do you think of the anorak jacket?  I’d love to hear how you’d style them!

Little Red Dress

Little Red DressI’m kicking off the week on the heels of a fabulous little getaway to DC this past weekend (more photos to come, but you can preview a few my snaps on Instagram!).  So pardon me if I’m a little too cheery for a Monday — I’m feeling refreshed, energized and inspired.
