|Polyvore - Untitled #69 by bbs25|
However, since I'm also looking to buy both a coral and a navy blazer, I decided to branch out and look for a proper jacket. I liked this look "in-my-closet" put together on Polyvore, which inspired me to start searching for a nude motorcycle or bomber jacket.
Since it will be 150 degrees here in Austin by April, I thought the earlier I bought it, the better. And, of course, I wasn't going to spend a lot on it. I've been looking for a pair of nude heels and I realized my skin looks much better with a pinkish/light nude color that a darker one, so I thought I might apply the principal to my nude colored jacket as well. I ended up finding two lighter choices.
|Kohl's Hydraulic Moto Jacket|
This one was at Kohls, on sale for $67.99, down from $98. Plus, there was a 15% off coupon code at Retailmenot.com. I liked the rose gold accents, but thought it might read too shiny/cheap in person.
|Faux Leather Motorcycle Jacket|
The second option (and the one I ended up going with) was at New York & Company. On sale for $44.97, down from $89.95. I added a $5 nail polish to get the total up and used a coupon code for $20 off of $50 - so end the end I paid $34.97 before taxes and shipping (total after $46.50). I'm actually not swept off my feet by the picture (and New York & Company's website doesn't feature a lot of detail shots), but for the price I thought I had to give it a try.
In case it doesn't work out, I have been researching options of a nude cropped or bomber style jacket. I liked the picture of Lauren Conrad and her jacket from Kohls, but they don't sell it anymore. However, New York & Company does have this one:
|Faux Leather Cropped Jacket|
It's more expensive - $89.95, although there are frequently coupons for $30-50 off $100 purchases. We'll see, though. Hopefully my original (cheaper) purchase will work out.
