Spring is in full swing, and I’m loving these warmer temps and sunnier days! But, warmER, doesn’t exactly mean warm. Just like sunniER doesn’t mean sunny. As much as I want to wear nothing but a sundress and sandals, the weather hasn’t quite caught up to my ambitions yet. Really though, even the summers in the Pacific Northwest aren’t known for being hot hot hot. So, an extra layer for my arms is always a nice to have on hand. Lately, my favorite go to layering item is my moto jacket. And, what’s better than a cute moto jacket? Some great moto jackets under $50, that’s what!
I’m definitely no saint when it comes to saving money on clothes. I’ve been known to splurge on a great bag, or a pair of heels I can’t live without. Hello cute lil crossbody Kate Spade bag seen in this picture. I have never regretted buying something super cute, but I have regretted not buying something perfect when I should have. I’m looking at you Ugg black booties on clearance in 2016. That being said, I do try to be budget conscious and not let my clothes budget get completely out of control. Great finds like these moto jackets under $50 definitely do the trick. They are edgy but still feminine. You can get them in just about any color or fabric under the sun, which is great because at that price I can justify more than one! The great quilting detail is what drew me to this one.
What’s better than feeling like a feminine bad ass? I would say just about nothing. The way to do that is slip off that tired cardigan (sorry cardi, you know I love you) and into a moto jacket! Plus, how great would they look with a pair of fringe shoes? Sold!
I have to share a story about my Grandma. She was the sweetest little old white haired lady, the quintessential grandma who baked, sewed, cooked, gardened, and was an all around domestic goddess. One day, she tells me a story about the time her and her girlfriends were going to a teaching conference where they met some cute boys. She decided to ditch the rest of the conference to hang out with the fella she just met, and ride all around Seattle on the back of his motorcycle. Oh to be as cool as my grandma! I imagine, she would be doing that in an outfit just like this, moto jacket and all!
