Favorite Pink Jackets For Spring + $25 IHop Gift Card Giveaway

[ 267 ] January 22, 2015 |

The Chief Blonde’s Favorite Pink Jackets!

Favorite Winter-into-Spring Pink Coats

Pink Jackets Winter Nordstrom

Look 1 (Quinn–$240), Look 2 (North Face Hyline $199), Look 3 (North Face Moss Bud Jacket $149), Look 4 (North Face Thermoball $199)

While the ground hog will be looking for his shadow in the next few weeks, there is still a lot of winter left. These “think spring” pink winter jackets above are just the right shade to get you through the rest of winter. I have recently discovered North Face (What? Am I the last one on the planet?) and am in LOVE! I have the longer car coat verison of the Thermoball, it weighs about 2 oz and is soooo warm.

Favorite Fun Pink Jackets

Pink Jackets Fun Nordstrom

Look 1 (Columbia Whirlybird $200) Look 2 (Collection B Angel Hair $68, Sale $40) Look 3 (Top Shop Polka Dot $170) Look 4 (Kate Spade New York Talia $698)

Sometimes pink jackets and coats are all about fun and you can’t deny that these fit the bill. I don’t know if I would look adorable in look 2 & 3 or just like a giant stuffed toy? What do you think?

Favorite Everyday Pink Jackets

Pink Jackets  Nordstrom

Look 1 ( J.O.A Single Button Car Coat $128), Look 2 (Topshop Tailored Peplum $90), Look 3 (Mural Boyfriend Blazer $74), Look 4 (Ralph Lauren Peplum Jacket $150)

Just throw these everyday pink jackets on when you want to feel soft and feminine or scream pink, whichever is the case. I know I would feel happy all day in these shades.

Favorite Pink Moto Jackets

Pink Jackets moto

Look 1 (Chelsea28 Pink Leather Jacket $198), Look 2 (Ace Delivery Moto $128), Look 3 (Kohls Apt. 9 Motor Jacket, Sale $28)

I just adore the cut of a moto jacket. I have about 5 and still can’t get enough. I just ordered the Look 3 above from Kohl’s and can’t wait to get it and style it for an outfit post!

My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE Pink Jacket of the Moment!

Rag & Bone Pink Devoe Coat

 Rag & Bone Devoe Coat ($795)

Yes, it’s insanely expensive. No, I don’t need it. No, it’s not the most expensive coat I have ever bought (went crazy in Vegas once and bought a Max Mara). But…isn’t it just so pretty? Would I wear it everyday and never take it off? Quite possibly, but I do love my Janska’s too, so I’d have to swap out with them.

Are you eyeing a PINK jacket?

Michelle Obama State of the Union Dress 2015

[ 33 ] January 20, 2015 |

Michelle Obama wears Michael Kors to 2015 State of the Union Address

In a tweet, from the First Lady of the US,  @FLOTUS , about the upcoming State of the Union address Jan. 20, 2015, 9:00PM est., Michelle Obama communicated this information

Mrs. Obama also revealed her State of the Union dress and that of Dr. Jill Biden, wife of the Vice-President. Michelle Obama Jill Biden State of the Union 2015  First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden posed for a selfie taken by the Twitter Mirror which includes the hashtag #SOTU . Up until now the Twitter Mirror has been more commonly used at award shows like The Oscars and The Grammys. 

On Tuesday night, at the State of the Union Address, Michelle Obama, First Lady of the US,  stepped out in a Michael Kors skirt suit. The tweed design consisted of a wide collar and zipper detailing in gray. The Michael Kors top, called Origami Collar Tweed Jacket, was available at Nordstroms (sold out. $797).  Here’s the original version glad to see that Michelle did not wear this rendition as I think the thigh high zipper may have been a tad too much!

You might also recognize the suit if you’re a “Good Wife” fan. This Michael Kors dress was first seen on Julianna Margulies in the role of Alicia Florrick, the wife of a disgraced politician on The Good Wife. MSNBC Andrea Mitchell (@AndreaMitchell) sent out this tweet comparing the two dresses and attached this picture:

Tell me, did you like the dress?

This post is not a political statement. The Chief Blonde wished to feature the fashion of our First lady, Michelle Obama and the Vice President’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden.
