LAVENDER LEATHER & NEW YEAR STYLED LINK-UP



There is something about lavender that is so calming and feminine. It always reminds me of my great grandmother, who just loved the color. A lavender spritz on my pillow, a lavender piece of clothing like this darling jacket, or pretty lavender in the fields, for some reason the color just makes me feel at peace.

Our mall recently got a store called Dry Goods which houses all kinds of trendy clothing and accessories. I saw this lavender leather jacket hanging on an end cap And knew I wanted it but since it was so close to the holidays I refrained and told my mom about it instead and she so sweetly surprised me with it at Christmas.


I have always loved grey with colors like lavender and pink ever since I was a little girl. So I knew right away this would be the perfect jacket to pair with my grey jeans from Nordstrom. (similar HERE) The asymmetrical white sleeveless top underneath was a gift I got my mom for Christmas from Macys and I borrowed it back because I thought it would look pretty under this jacket.


I searched and searched my house for some silver pumps I got years ago and when I couldn't find them, realized that I had sold them at a garage sale. How silly, don't I know by now that metallics are classics, LOL! I found a pair online and have fallen in love with them can't wait to find goodies in my closet to pair them with in addition to these grey jeans.

Despite the store DryGoods, being chocked full of great clothes and stellar clearance racks, I could not find this jacket online for y'all. However, I did still see a few in the store. So if you have a Drygoods in a mall near you, maybe you can scoop this up. It's a great transition jacket into the spring time where lavender definitely shines in the Spring color palette.


Can't wait for you to Link-Up with The Blended Blog ladies and myself for the Fashion Link-Up. What awesomeness are you styling'?

  36. Ahhhh that jacket is everything!!! It is absolutely gorgeous and looks so fabulous on you. I have always been a huge fan of lavender as well. Zoe's nursery was originally going to be mostly lavender but I changed my mind when I couldn't find any bedding I liked with purples.

  49. OH MY GOODNESS I need this outfit! Ha! Lavender reminds me of my grandmother as well as she loved those soaps and lotions....but with me being a big fan of purple, I think lavender is the more neutral purple color to wear. Your outfits are always a 10 out of 10 but this one is my ultimate favorite so far!

  54. Sweet, sweet Andrea, I've had a heck of a time leaving you a comment (I tried with explorer and the option just wouldn't come up) but I came back today because I LOVE LOVE LOVE this jacket. The lavender color is so pretty on you and goes so well with your complexion. It's one of those colors that I always want but have a hard time pulling off myself. Next month, I am going to get in on my nails and start with that. Gorgeous outfit.
