Bringing the 80’s Back

I think it’s about time I eat my words. I have always said that if fashion from the 80’s comes back in style I would never be on board. Ever.

That is, until the other week, when I was in Target for envelopes and I laid eyes on this jacket (FYI- they don’t keep the envelopes in the women’s clothing department). I don’t know what it is about it, but I instantly fell in love with it and started thinking of all the different ways I could style it.

It still kind of baffles me how much I love this jacket, because acid wash was one of the things I hated most about 80’s fashion. All I think of when I think of acid wash is a pair of jeans my mom had. Not only were they acid wash, but they were pleated and tapered (glad you got rid of those, Mom). Oh the 80’s! I also had a pair that was tapered. They had a zipper at the ankle and a hot pink bow that snapped on and off above the zipper. Terrible. Haha!

 I don’t think you will find me rocking some acid wash jeans any time soon. For now, I am ok with just the jacket. But seriously-how can you not love it?

Outfit Details:

Jacket: Target /// Shirt: Kohls (similar) /// Pants: Target /// Shoes: Converse via Kohls /// Purse: Target (similar) /// Bracelets: Tiffanys (super old), Stella and Dot (similar), Elizabeth & West /// Watch: Target 

If you don’t care for this jacket I hate to tell you that you will be seeing it again tomorrow, styled differently but in an equally casual way!

    This jacket is perfect! I wouldn't wear acid wash jeans either (or WOULD I??!), but this jacket is perfection on you, and so very modern.
