Spring Outerwear – The Anorak

transitional spring outerwear

The weather is already turning warmer in Louisiana (and this girl could not be happier), but most mornings I still need a light jacket which is where my love for anoraks comes into play. It’s a great, light-weight option on chilly mornings and on days when you anticipate windy weather.

Since most Mardi Gras weekends are usually unpredictable weather-wise, I’ll be keeping my light-weight anorak on-hand for the festivities. See more photos and get product details in the full post!

My anorak doesn’t have a fur-trim hood, so I wore mine with a cardigan that does have one to get this look. It also created a layered look with different textures that I liked more than just wearing the jacket over the striped top by itself.

I’m also already wearing my white skinny jeans. I know some of you might be thinking ‘what the heck,’ but I just couldn’t wait any longer to break them out! I’ve never been a stickler for the rules on when you should and shouldn’t wear white, so I’m using my white denim skinnies to brighten up my winter wardrobe pieces. 

This is a great example of a “what should I wear to Mardi Gras” outfit because I’ve got my flat ankle boots, crossbody bag and lightweight jacket – OH and festive Mardi Gras drinkware too!

ps. More white denim inspiration in the Stepping Into Spring post & Orange and Athletic post.
