For this week’s Friday Finds I thought I would change things up a bit and share this adorable (and affordable!) jean jacket I found in Target’s junior’s section for a mere $20! Jean jackets are kind of a big deal for spring, which I had been pretty much on the fence about until coming across this on a recent trip to Target to purchase cleaning supplies. (I swear; is it even possible to get out of that place without at least three things you never intended to purchase?) As a child of the 80s, jean jackets generally take me back to an era of Aqua Net hairspray, slap bracelets, and parachute pants. Um…no thanks.
This jacket, however, with its quirky polka dots is refreshingly updated. Since I purchased this jacket in the juniors’ section (size L) it is a little more fitted than a typical jean jacket, which is also part of its charm. One thing I have always disliked about jean jackets is how bulky they feel and look on me. The more tailored fit of this jacket lends itself to being layered over dresses or a cute top with some colored skinny jeans. A great floral pin or statement necklace are the perfect accessories to add a little extra fun this spring!
