STYLED / 06

i’m headed to San Francisco this weekend which is supposed to be in the high 50’s low 60’s so i have transitional jackets on my mind. a coat or jacket that gets you through the transition between winter and spring when you don’t want to wear your heavy coat but it’s too chilly to go without the extra layer. below are a few of my current favorites, a mixture of colors and textures. for transition jackets, i like either a punch of color or a soft grey, that way they can be worn into spring without the wintery feeling that a navy or black jacket brings along. also, for the record i love fancy coats with jeans. hope you’re enjoying the warmer temps and longer days! – joanie

– Mango unstructured wool coat ($100) – i love this shade of pink. it’s a step up from blush but not all the way to bubble gum. so pretty!
– Zara crossover belted coat ($100) – very chic!
– ASOS duster ($62) – a great layering piece and takes your every day jean look up a level. feels like an ideal traveling piece.
Mango textured wool blend coat ($130) – the cuffed sleeve, deep purple color and side slits makes this jacket a great closet addition. the color would act as a neutral and could be paired with almost anything and the style of the coat is laid back and not too fussy which is great.
Lou & Grey jacket ($240) – soft plaid print and very unstructured = a more sophisticated version of a zip up sweatshirt.
Madewell jean jacket ($138) –  one of the best jean jackets i’ve seen in awhile. the cut, the wash, the buttons, it’s all good.
Zara long coat ($190) – yellow can be a tricky color but if you’re open to it i think this coat is very cool and would be such a fun spring piece.
Zara double breasted coat ($130) – a wool free jacket for those who can’t do wool. and the color is called nude pink which might make you feel like a ballerina.
–  Topshop Embroidered jacket ($250) – i always got to throw in a cool girl piece. this one does the trick!

i definitely gotta pinch myself on this one, guys! i’ve been waiting SO long for these target products to be released, and i’m so happy the week is finally here when i can talk about it! this travel line was a total dream for me to be a part of, because travel is something that feels very close to my heart. i really feel the most inspired when i’m somewhere new. after the line of plates and cups we did in target last year, they approached me about doing a line of luggage and travel accessories. i didn’t think twice about it…

i wanted to create a line that felt chic but also affordable. my favorites are the blush toned items with the black and white pattern accents. i envisioned cool details in the line like gold zippers and matching add-on tassels. i wanted it to feel fun to carry, but also very functional.
