Floral Anorak Makes a Great Spring Jacket

This is the time of year when I’m on the lookout for a casual outerwear piece to transition into spring or to take with me when I travel in case the weather suddenly turns chilly.

I was lucky to find this cute floral anorak, which is not only practical but very pretty too!

This handy anorak jacket is a lightweight jacket that you can layer over a t-shirt or sweater.  I’m the type who always feels chilly, and  I’m amazed how warm this anorak keeps me.

The color and pattern are soft and feminine. Peach, pink, blue, and green creates a dreamy combination of colors. The floral print is such a nice change from more athletic-looking anoraks I’ve seen.

I’ve paired my pink anorak jacket that has touches of blue with skinny blue jeans. But it would look really fresh with white jeans too. I’m a massive fan of slip-on sneakers. I wear them all the time, and this pair in gray suede is very comfy and classy.

Here’s the sporty sweater I picked up to wear underneath. This bright, cool pink is so fresh and gets me in the mood for spring!

The best thing about a piece like this is that it’s so lightweight that when the weather warms up, you can tie it around your shoulders or waist. I just took it with me on a trip, and I rolled it up and put it in my purse. It doesn’t weigh you down the way a sweater or coat would. I love this anorak, and I’m getting so much use out of it!

If you need something lightweight, cute and warm for home or travel, this is a fabulous find! You will find the links to buy, above. If you like this but prefer a button-up style, I found this which is cute too.

  1. I love your look. Perfect outfit to visit Colorado. This is how we dress out here. Jeans are the accepted attire to go anywhere. Just dress them up or down depending on the occasion.
