Look for Less ~ Cargo Jacket

Every season when new trends emerge, I usually pick a few that I want to try out. I base my decisions mostly on what appeals to me, what will work for my body type and what fits my lifestyle. Then, I make a list of those items and try to find options that are in line with my budget. Sometimes, it can take a while to find a good deal, so having patience and a commitment to frugality is key.
I have been loving the cargo/utility jackets that I’ve seen countless celebrities wearing lately. They seem so versatile, almost like a jean jacket – they can add edge to an otherwise girly outfit or bring a military-inspired style to your usual weekend uniform. Some examples:

I finally found one with great details at an affordable price! (It helps that I was able to use Kohl's cash to lessen my out-of-pocket expense.) I know it is something I’ll be wearing all spring/summer and it’s a piece that can carry me into the fall.

Candie’s Cargo Jacket in Major Flirt – retail $58.00; bought for $26.00

Details I love: drawstring waist for a figure-flattering shape, slightly puffed shoulders give it a feminine feel, brass buttons & flap pockets add interest.
