I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I love my new utility jacket from Velvet Heart. I’ve always been a huge fan of their brand, and this is a good reminder why. I didn’t list it as a “find of the day” because it’s over $100, but it’s honestly worth the splurge. Remember, being sensible means shopping smart, and that means considering cost per wear, quality of said piece, and all that good stuff.
Be careful when pinching pennies because you could just be bleeding money by going with the cheaper option. Case in point, Aldo shoes. I used to be all about their sales, but I quickly realized I wasn’t saving money because their quality was no bueno. It’s been years since I’ve shopped there so maybe things have changed since then, but their soles rarely stayed in tact, like maybe 3-4 months max.
This particular jacket is a style that’ll last the test of time. It’s lightweight so you can wear it during spring and the warmer parts of fall. It has two big pockets up front, roll tab sleeves and a drawstring waist that flatters any and every shape.
It’s made of 100% tencel, and it feels like butter to the touch. I’m wearing a size small, and it fits me just right. Wear it with jeans and a cute top like I did for a stylish but comfortable everyday look or pair it with something more feminine for an interesting juxtaposition. And expect many remixes to come because I’m set on showing off the versatility of this jacket.
Not feeling this style? No problem. Here are other fashionable but affordable jackets that you’ll love (all under $100). Your local TJ Maxx or Marshalls should have awesome options as well so keep an eye out. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions you may have.
One last thing before I leave you guys today. If the top I’m wearing looks familiar, it’s because I featured it in this “find of the day” post not too long ago.
