If you’ve ever needed a reason to buy a new jacket, this cold weather is definitely one of them. I know my Utah people feel me. We’ve had a mixture of freezing snow to freezing rain. I can’t seem to escape the wet or the cold… I hate it to say the least.
So we added the “Ava” Bomber jacket to the store a couple of weeks ago because I wanted a jacket that was stylish and would keep me warm. The reason it caught my eye— it’s like a crossover between a bomber and a trench coat!
It’s the first and only jacket available at lavidablue.com. I loved the fit so much that I’m thinking about carrying it in black. What y’all think?
I’ve worn it a couple of times on really chilly days and even though it feels a little light for the length, I’ve gotta say I’m really happy with the way it’s kept me warm. The first time I wore it, I did it with a black, short sleeve mini dress, and some thigh high boots.
Also, it was a cold rainy day at the end of November in Utah. You can kinda get an idea of how cold it was (If you live in Utah, of course). That’s the level of warmth you get with the “Ava”.
It’s a basic olive jacket so you can pretty much wear it with most of lavidaBlue’s other pieces. It’s a convenient jacket not only because of the length, weight, and color, but it’s got a few pockets with zippers so you don’t really need a purse when wearing it out.
I like the pockets thing. A lot. Sometimes carrying a bag can be so inconvenient. There are two places I seriously cannot stand having my bag with me— the movies and any event at the arena (concerts or basketball games).
For one, those seats fold out. So even if you were lucky enough to have an empty seat next to you, it’s not like you can set your bag on it, it’ll slip right through the seat and land on the floor. Which leads to a serious pet peeve of mine, my bag on ANY floor.
Two, I’m a card kinda girl. I don’t carry cash, so putting my phone and card in the pockets of my jacket are more comfy for me. And sure, I may need to touch up my lipstick so I’ll store it in one of the pockets. My logic is, “Is one little lipstick, phone, and card worth bringing a whole bag with me?” It’s not like I’m going to have a whole glam session while I’m at these places. I can do the hand lotion thing, the makeup touch up, or the perfume spritz beforehand.
If you feel me and think like I do, then the “Ava” will be an AMAZING buy for you. You’ll love it, whether you wear it with a bag or not. If you’ve bought pieces from lavidaBlue, you should try completing the look with the “Ava” and one of our chokers.
If there's a style y'all want us to add to lavidaBlue, let us know!
