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!

That is a really cute jacket. I LOVE that jean jackets are back in right now. I wear mine all the time.
Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh says
Cute dress and shoes! That jacket pairs so perfectly. I love the coloration of the jacket, such a perfect color to go with so many other things.
Take me shopping! I love the combo of feminine and bad-ass-ery. Real word.
This is such a cutie jacket! I agree with Erica, you need to take me shopping too haha.
So cute! I love the red and brown jacket. They are great for throwing over tops and dresses like you show in the pictures.
I’m still looking for that perfect and affordable moto jacket. The red and tan one are my favorite in this post. I do love that floral print on your dress!
Those jackets are cute! I have a few Jean jackets but I wouldn’t mind wearing a few of these too! Love the colors!
These types of jackets are no brainers for staying warm (when its kinda cool…kinda cold…kinda warm) during this time of year. Love your picks!
Tanya @ Mom's Small Victories says
Love your outfit and the story about your grandma has me cracking up. Oh to be young again!
I love the jacket! It looks so cute with the dress too! I love adding pieces to a dress to really help change the look when I want to.
Terri Steffes says
The right jacket makes the outfit. You can wear really simple things under it and no one will really notice. Your shoes are super cute, too.
Rhian Westbury says
I love the outfit and the jacket is such a nice transitional Spring jacket. I always find at this time of the year I over or under dress a lot x
Cindy Ingalls says
I’m really loving the block heels,espadrills, and of course all the fringe and pom-poms. It’s also nice to see florals making a big comeback, in a good way this time.
Reesa Lewandowski says
I love the look of moto jackets! I really like the one you are wearing too! I need to pick one up, they pair so nicely with so many types of outfits!
I’m a complete jacket junkey! I used to live in WA and jackets were needed all the time. I loved them and have so many now!
I really love how you’ve styled your outfit! Moto jackets seem great and are perfect for this time of year. Plus when they’re a bargain, you just can’t say no!
Di Hickman says
Oooh I’ll have to check these out. Been looking for a moto jacket (non leather) for a while. Just most are very short. and I have a longish torso which makes them even shorter.

I love layering! Especially, when the weather changes by the minute here in Texas! Yesterday we had a thunderstorm that really dropped the temp! It was back to jackets!
Love that jacket! And those shoes. The black floral print is so edgy and pretty with the jacket and shoes. Great spring outfit!
Carol Cassara says
I love how these jackets make anyone look fierce! I usually just go with black or plum because it looks lovely but other colors are fine too.
I JUST got a moto jacket from LA Coalition and it is so so soft. I wear it all the time! Love that light blue shade, though!
Angie Rose says
I LOVE moto jackets! I’m also a huge fan of moto boots. This is such a great guide. I’m always looking to find one for a good deal! Pairing it with a floral dress like that really makes it look so stylish and cute. I love your logo by the way!
That is such a cute jacket. I love denim clothing because it can be dressed up or down for a day or an evening look. I really like the dress you paired it with.
Krystle Cook says
These jackets are so cute! I do not have one but I would love to find the perfect one for me.
Oh my gosh these are all so cute! Love them!!!
Yasmin Ali says
