Currently Coveting...

I always have something I really, really, really, really want. Don't you?

I really wanted a pair of olive skinnies. Got them. I really wanted a pair of cobalt shorts. Gotcha. I really wanted a striped skirt. Got that too.

Coming into Autumn (no, come back Summer!) it's no surprise the next thing on my must-have-or-I'm-going-to-pout-like-a-child list is an army green jacket. or an olive jacket. or a utility jacket. whatever you want to call it, as long as it's in my closet asap, I care not.

What do you think?

But I can't find one. Not one that I love, in my price range, in my size. But I will. Mark my words, I will.

Here are some options, none are 'the one' for me but maybe they will be for you?

/ one / two / three / four / five / six / seven /

I really like number 3 but that's just a bit more than I'd like to pay right now, I know it's not bad for a jacket at all and it's probably great quality cause its ASOS but with Boston coming up.. maybe it will go on sale!

What do you think? Am I crazy or is this the perfect addition to my closet?

  1. I reallllllly want summer to stay around for another month or so, pretty please.

    I think you will rock the heck out of any Army jacket, lady. I love the 6th and 8th one, on the models. Those are my faves!

  6. I seriously keep up with the current fashion trends through your blog. I'm so far out of the loop it isn't even funny lol. When I go shoppin i usually end up in the workout section and come away with lots of tights and tanks b/c that's what I wear to work but then realize I never dress like a normal person lol

  7. Id like a pair of olive skinnies too! I have a green utility jacket but I dont like it too much, it feels a little too bulky (and I live in Florida so that doesn't help). But they always look so cute and dainty on the fashion models, so I would like a lighter one!

  8. That jacket is perfect!! You can totally rock it!!

  9. I love military jackets!! I've been searching for one too. H&M had one. It didn't work for me, but it might for you. I am also in search of olive skinnies for this fall! And brown boots and red skinnies and...my husband is going to kill me. :)

  12. OMG I have been on the hunt for the perfect military jacket for months now! I'm obsessed! I need a fairly lightweight one though since it's still so hot out here. Let me know if you end up getting one! :)

  14. I would never have thought to pair that jacket with the black dress in scarf?! What a cute look!!!!! I really like those jackets too. They are always a great look and never really go out of style. I hear you on finding one that fits in your budget. I am always really wanting something too!

  15. I have 2 of those jackets and 1 with leather sleeves that I live in them durring the fall! #4 is cute, and the price cut is insane!!

  16. Pretty sure I need an army green jacket and a leopard print scarf asap! So cute!! Also, I hope you got some points, I signed up using your JustFab link last night!! Got some boots and a purse! Woohoo!

  17. Look on Old Navy - I'm obsessed with their version! Ended up getting the olive vest instead but you can never beat their prices! Happy weekend :)

  18. Not crazy, I love slouchy army green jackets. They look so cute over skinny jeans or dresses. Do it! And post where you end up buying.

  19. Ive always loved army green and those jackets are the best! I love them!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love number 7! No advice on where to buy one but I really like the jacket.

    ReplyDelete
  21. #3 clicks the most for me too. Hope you find "the one"!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Those are great. I always like how they look on other people, but since I'm in the military, I can never buy military-style clothing myself XD. I already have enough military gear, I want to stay far away from it when I don't have to wear it. But I think it looks really cute on others. #5 - I wanna wrap up in that coat!! They have it in black - that would be awesome for winter. Alas, I am po'.

  23. such a cute look! Love the coat and the boots! so pretty on you.

  26. I got my utility jacket at Gap this spring (on MAJOR sale) and I have seriously worn it once a week since! I have that 1st picture pinned and recreated that outfit for work a few weeks ago.

  27. If you find one that's The One, you will definitely be glad you did. They're a really useful, versatile piece. Love your inspiration pics! Mine is from Express and I would highly highly recommend it but it's sold out If they re-stock it for the Labor day sale I will let you know. :)

  28. Um yes!! Love me some utility jackets! I got one last year with leather sleeves and I can't wait to bust it out again and I got a vest version over the weekend! So excited to style it! Happy Friday!!!

  30. I got one from F21 last season and I seriously wore it all the time! Totally go for it!

  31. I like them all but the color of number 1 looks better on me. I am with you, I'm not ready for winter yet and it's a good thing since I live in AZ!! It is still triple digits through Oct. Usually cools off around Halloween.

    ReplyDelete
  32. No you definitely need one of these!! I have two and wear them nonstop. Even throughout the summer I've worn my lighter one. It's a must have! I love #2!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Now I want to get this! I may just have to help you find the perfect one!

    ReplyDelete
