Six Pink Jacket Outfit Ideas

|
This week we're getting ready to head out on our family summer vacation to the Oregon Coast and I can't wait! Even though I've been there a couple of times before and have a good idea of what I need to pack, I'm still dreading the actual packing process. I know a lot of people who dread unpacking when they get home, but for me packing is the worst! I stress about forgetting something or last minute changes in weather or activities once we arrive that result in me not having the right things to wear. I've been debating whether to take this pink jacket with me. I love it but also don't want to ruin it with some of our more "rugged" activities, so I'm still on the fence. If it doesn't make the final cut, I'll still have plenty of ways to wear it when I get back, as I show further down in today's post.
Pink Field Jacket, White Henley Tank, Jean Shorts, Leopard Sandals

I've posted this jacket  a few times in the "more ways to wear" segments of my posts, but this is my first time wearing it outside the house and giving it a dedicated post. It's cute, comfortable, and true to size (I'm wearing XS here and it's fully stocked in all sizes as I'm writing this). My only critique would be that I don't prefer the elastic wrists on the sleeves since I can't roll them upr. But it doesn't bother me enough to give me any regrets. I only regret not getting it last year when it first came out!

In other sizing notes for these pieces, the leopard sandals run true to size and are still holding up really well after three summers of use! The henley tank runs just a little small. I usually wear a Small in fitted tanks and that's what I'm wearing in this, but it does feels just a bit smaller than the average size small fitted tank. Or it could just be it's shorter in the torso than the tanks I usually wear? Either way, I'd size up one or go with the bigger of your two sizes if you tend to be in between like me.

More Ways to Wear It...
There's no doubt about it, this jacket is going to be great for fall! So today I'm sharing a few ways to wear this jacket right now...and three ways to wear it later for cooler weather.

Here's a little chit chat for you to start your Monday!

1. Summer Fashion Poll: Once the Nordstrom sale starts the blogosphere instantly shifts the focus to fall fashion, but I was curious as to whether other people make that same shift or if that's just a blogger thing and most people are still focused on summer fashion. I took a poll on Instagram and here are the results:
I was surprised by the results! Over half are still at least considering some summer purchases! As for me, I don't plan to buy any more shorts or summer-only pieces since I'm definitely set on those, but I'm also not ready to purchase blanket scarves or heavy sweaters. This in-between time is when I tend to focus a little more on shoes, bags and accessories that aren't as season-specific.

2. If you are still shopping for summer, here are 17 items you need to dress like a professional Instagram influencer this summer. I have zero of these items, but I do think I'll add "red printed midi dress" to my wishlist because I can see that working well through early fall. TBD if it can turn me into a professional influencer!

3. Dupe Alert. I have seen a bunch of people post these pajamas (on the left below), and I was thinking, "Hey, I have those too!" Except I finally realized the Insta-famous ones are from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (sold out), and mine are from Target!

The Target version is only $20 and really soft and comfortable. Highly recommend!

4. Oregon Coast: I noted in the intro that I'm heading back to the Oregon Coast this week, but I'm not planning to do a trip recap since I did a pretty comprehensive travel guide last summer. I'll be repeating most of the same activities this summer except with my side of the family, so a repeat post doesn't seem worthwhile. That said, I'm sure I'll do some sharing on Instagram stories as we go so you can watch for that if you're following me there.

 Thanks for stopping by today and I'll see you back here on Wednesday with my July update!

  1. Have the very best vacation Gina! I finally ordered that pink jacket and it should arrive this week - I can't wait! Thanks for some great styling tips, I'm going to pin this so I make sure I wear my jacket lots of ways!
    Those pajamas from Target are such great dupes! I love getting pjs there and at Old Navy. Again pjs are just something I can't see spending a lot of money on so I'm always so happy when I see Target slaying it again and bringing us affordable options. How's that for one run on sentence, huh? Okay, have a terrific trip!

  4. no wonder I'm not a major instagram influencer lol. Can't wait to see your stories on vacay. When I can wear my jackets again, I cannot wait to wear my pink one that's similar. It's so versatile.

    1. LOL right? Not only do I not have the 17 necessary clothing items, I also don't have the right age, face or body. And I don't go to cool enough locations for my pics, either! C'es la vie. ;)

  5. I hope you have a wonderful holiday! :) Your pink jacket is so cute, I agree you'd get a lot of wear from it - even if you didn't take it you could wear it after! :)

    Hope you had a great weekend! We had a mix of busy time but also a little relaxing time too which was nice.

  9. Love this jacket! The other colors look nice as well and I'd like to add one to my closet for Fall, so I'll have to keep Old Navy in mind ;) I'm excited for your trip, so I'll definitely try to keep up on IG stories for updates!

    1. It comes in so many colors! Some of the styles are different materials but in general I just love this style. I am sure I'm going to be grabbing another one for fall.

  10. I don't have a pink jacket, but I have a similar colored cardigan. I am loving all these wonderful ideas! I have similar items in my closet and can recreate so many of these outfits! Pinning for later right now!

  12. I love the blush jacket! It's such a fun twist on the classic olive. Have fun in Oregon! And also, I have those Target PJs. They are not the best. The top runs large and the buttons like to come undone.
