Especially in the early weeks of summer when the temperature fluctuates so much, I take a jacket everywhere I go. I get cold all the time and you just never know when the AC is going to be blasting away somewhere.

In the past, it’s been hard to find the perfect summer jacket that doesn’t look like it belongs in fall or winter. This year however, I love faux leather coats (thanks to Pinterest…) and think they work great in the summer. I’m so excited that this one from Andrew Marc will take me through the entire year. Not only is it perfect now, but I can totally see myself wearing it in the fall and winter as well! For this look, I paired it with some distressed denim and stripes however, it would also look really cute with a sundress. I might even wear this over a dress for a more casual wedding we have coming up. So versatile!
