It feels like summer is blazing but I’m so excited for Fall around the corner. I love to look for a good layering piece once summer starts winding down. I’m always cold inside with the AC blasting so it’s nice to have long sleeves. Once mid-August rolls around, I really like to start preparing for Fall fashion, hence a layering piece.
LOFT sent over this affordable utility jacket and I love how it’s the perfect lightweight layering piece. The light color makes it easy to wear for summer and transition into fall. One reason I love utility jackets is they have plenty of pockets, so you have a place for your phone, wallet or anything else you may need!
This utility jacket fits true to size and I’m wearing XXS. The jacket sleeves have snaps so you can keep them closed or open. I so appreciate the snap buttons in front of the zipper, too! Sometimes utility jackets can be a little shapeless, but not this one. I really like the elastic ties on the side so you can cinch in your waist. There’s still room underneath for me to wear a sweater or thicker top, which I appreciate. It’s currently on sale for 40 percent off with code WANT.
Another reason this is utility jacket is great is the fabric. It’s made of lyocell, which is a sustainable material that’s super breathable. I could wear this outside in the full sun and it actually keeps me cooler because the sun isn’t directly hitting my skin.
During summer, I love an all-white or cream outfit. This eyelet tee is on major sale and a great staple, too. Wearing size XXS in the tee, which has the cutest stripes near the neckline. I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple, so this affordable utility jacket can shine. White jeans and pale pink espadrilles are perfect to accentuate this outfit.
