So who remembers watching the movie, Miss Congeniality?  When Miss Rhode Island was asked to describe her perfect date, she answered…April 25th.  She went on to explain…“because it’s not too hot, not too cold…all you need is a light jacket!”  And with that answer….she won Miss United States!!!

Hilarious…right?  That being said, I can’t think of better inspiration for a fashion article!  So let’s start with utility jackets.  These are considered a wardrobe essential during our spring months…ideal for the perfect date.  And just so you know…utility includes cargo, yoga, denim, moto, and rain jackets.  In other words…your basic everyday jacket.  

You will definitely want to browse Cabi’s spring collection on our board and contact Cabi stylist, Stacy Stoltz.  Their belted denim jacket is one of our favorites.  Style it with white jeans, and for a little drama, wear it with their floral wrap midi skirt. Cabi’s white utility jacket can easily be paired with blue jeans and makes the perfect pantsuit when paired with their white jeans. Talbot’s everyday yoga jacket comes in five colors….so no more excuses for not looking cute at your home workout session or walk around the block.  

 Whatever the weather and whatever the occasion, a blazer is a wardrobe staple that will take you from chilly to chill.  Think about adding a spring twist to your blazer style with florals.  I’m loving a floral blazer with a tropical flair from Cuteshopp.  Pair it with Cabi’s white jeans, gold raffia sandals, and a Lilly Pulitzer cane tote.  Ready or not, here we come Boca Raton!  In our dreams…right? 

Looking for a day to date night jacket?  Then just know that tweed jacket you have tucked away in your closet will dress-up your blue jean style.  From Zara’s green and blue tweed blazers to Anthropologie’s tweed moto jacket….you can easily transition from day to date night!  My Pinterest board favorite is a creamy tweed blazer from WearNoya, so sophisticated when belted and worn with slacks.

So who knew April 25th was the perfect date?  Obviously, we have a very wise beauty queen to thank for that!
