Mom, if you are reading this, you must be so proud.
My mom loves jackets, like a lot. They are her thing. Power shopping (as we like to call it) is one of our favorite things to do together, especially if it’s for a jacket. Nothing will get my mom into “full speed ahead!” shopping mode as much as a hunt for a new jacket. Surprisingly enough, I was alone when I stumbled upon this little statement-maker, and it stopped me in my tracks. My first thought when I saw this cutout jacket in Forever 21 (yes, you heard that right!) was “no, no, no this can’t be faux?!”. It looks and feels like the real deal! I’m not usually a huge proponent of pleather, but going faux has its upsides- it won’t cost you many pennies and you’ll make PETA proud. 🙂
This jacket imparts an editorial edge to just about anything. Take a plain and simple wardrobe piece from basic to not-so-basic by adding it to your ensemble. This fresh design is the epitome of balance. The juxtaposition of fierce leather cutouts with delicate mesh lining equals perfection. Also, could a jacket be more ideal for spring & summer? I doubt it. Its light and airy qualities will keep you cool no matter the temp (the mesh lining is super breezy!).
I kept the rest of my look soft and monochromatic so that the jacket could do all of the talking. I love the femininity of petal pink, but let’s be honest, the hue of this jumpsuit washes me out like no other! I have had a sneaking suspicion for years that pastel pink isn’t the best color for my skin tone, and now I know beyond a doubt that it’s true. From here on out I will reserve this soft pink shade for accessories and clothing pieces like skirts & pants. Near my face is a no-go.
So now that I think about it, this jacket isn’t the only thing making a statement! Aren’t these earrings WOW?! When I came across these stunners, I had some major sticker shock (but, like, the good kind!). They were only $20! Accessory Jane has such an amaze assortment of on-trend pieces for prices that will make your wallet happy!
Shop My Look – Jacket: Forever 21 | Jumpsuit: Similar here (almost identical!) & here (the cutest EVER!) | Statement Earrings: Accessory Jane | Purse: Nordstrom (in color “seashell”) | Rings: Nordstrom (wearing only 2 from set) | Heels: Nordstrom (similar)
I’m actually pretty shocked that this jacket is still in stock, so snatch one up before the word gets out that it’s dabomb.com!
