Hello, hello!! I want to share this cargo jacket I bought and talk about why I really like it. I talked about looking for a cargo jacket when I blogged about my fall coats post. It took me longer then I thought it would to find a cargo jacket that I like as well as didn’t look too masculine. Actually this was sent to me in a stitchfix box, and I was surprised by how much I like it.
Cargo jackets and this army green are weirdly very in right now, I was not sure about it but requested the olive color in my style box so I could try it out with out any commitment. The only item I kept was this jacket. Now I wasn’t really sure about this to begin with. The reason I kept it and really like it is when I cuffed the sleeves there is this striped pattern that shows. This add a more feminine feel to the jacket that is otherwise pretty masculine. I probably will not wear this jacket without the sleeves rolled I just don’t think it will look as good.
I like to wear this bumming or running errands, it has such great pockets that if I wanted to I would not need to bring a purse. When I was running errands I just put my keys, wallet and phone in the pockets and was on my way. This is not something that I can typically do even when wearing jackets, many women’s jackets do not have large pockets (which is dumb).
I also wore this out when it was snowing these huge snow flakes, I paired it with a fleece jacket under it. But I just felt really cool walking around in this jacket while there were really big snowflakes falling around me. It was awesome. I learned that the jacket is also pretty water resistant. During said snow storm where I was out and about I got into a snowball fight with some friends and for the jacket not being a winter coat it did amazing. I wasn’t even cold that day, the temp was hovering around 30 degrees so not that cold.
Let me know your thoughts
