sugarlips apparel military jacket

A few weeks ago, Sugarlips Apparel emailed me and asked if I would like to pick out an item from their site, to which I of course replied um, yes please! I almost chose this adorable top, but also loved this military-style jacket I'm wearing here. I've been searching for a chic, lightweight jacket for spring, and was so happy to come home to this waiting on my doorstep! 
 I'll be honest, I've worn this jacket about five times already since receiving it last week. It's perfect for layering over longer sweaters, avoiding that weird long sweater/short jacket combo where the sweater sticks out underneath. It makes any outfit look instantly put-together, and the color goes with basically everything I own. It is definitely a light jacket--you don't want to wear this in snow or freezing temperatures. Since it's still pretty chilly here in Washington, I threw on my favorite garden and sea scarf with it for some extra warmth. I woke up to snow yesterday morning--ready for sunshine now, please! 
 This is my last week of classes (ah!) so yesterday was spent drinking coffee, revising stories and poems, and in general getting myself organized. Luckily for me, my sweet boyfriend made me dinner AND the girl scouts were out in full force with their cookies--so the day ended well. 

PS: I'm offering a code for 50% off any purchase from Sugarlips! The first person to tweet about this post gets it--just to say thanks and get you ready for Spring. xoxo!

I love this outfit! And I have that long sweater under a short jacket problem all the time. It's extremely annoying. Your jacket is perfect for fixing this though! I really need to find myself one!
