What Jacket Do I Need? Schaket, You Say.

Spring has sprung in Saskatchewan, well in shorts bursts anyway.  This past week has been gloomy, with some snow and nasty wind that's making it stay pretty close to 0C.  So although I tucked our winter jackets away, they have been out once or twice this week.  Oh well, let's talk about how spring has sprung extra early here this year and I am so happy about it.  For reference check out how much snow we had last year at this time of year, now we have none!!!


From our COVID front porch picture project last April.  


To my spring porch April 2021!  No snow!




Anyway the nice weather has had a good effect on my mood and our Easter break from school was a happy, calm, and restful time.  I went back to work in a completely different mindset and with different energy then I did coming back from February week, which was extremely hard for me and I was going through a rough patch.  But not since the sun has been out and the weather has been warmer.  So  a couple of weeks ago we went for a stroll downtown. Oreo joined us on our stroll and I must say she switches from country and city pretty easily.   I was so pumped that the weather was sunny and warm so I got to take my new schacket out for a spin and I LOVE IT!!!!!  It's been my go-to since I purchased it four weeks ago.  It looks cute with everything, jeans, leggings, joggers, and a form fitting dress.  While I was worried that the oversized style would just engulf me, especially since I am not overly tall, but it's so cute, and it I keep the underneath layers fairly form fitting, I don't feel I am lost in it at all.  I actually ordered a few different ones, a beige and a light green and neither was a keeper for me, both of the colors kind of washed me out but I'll link all the jackets below.  As soon as I tried this one on it was PERFECT.  Even my teenage daughter approves.  I did try it on in both XS and Small and I decided to stay with XS.  This shacket is a bit heavier, which I love and feel will work now and even through the summer evenings, and I love the textured fabric.  The sleeves balloon out just a tad and then come together at the cuff giving them just that extra little bit of detail.  I absolutely love everything about this coat and it was super easy to ship anything I didn't want back to H & M, which is always a bonus.  Unfortunately this one is all sold out, 😢 but I am linking up a few other options from them below.  








As we explored our little city, I always try to find dream houses.  Do you ever do that?  This is mine on this particular street.  It has been for years and although  it's not the cutest older home in the neighborhood, or the newest modern build, I love it for two reasons.  #1 that veranda has my whole heart and #2 it looks like no other home on that road.  Completely unique and proud.  It completely reminds me of Sweet Home Alabama and I love that movie.  So if for any reason I should come into a large sum of money, this is the home I'd like to live in.  Anyone out there want to make my dreams come true?  Hahahaha.  Have a beautiful weekend ahead and thank you so much for stopping by.

  3. Hallelujah for signs of spring. I have been oooing and ahhhing over this same shacket for a few weeks. But it is almost too warm to wear it here now. And I did buy a plaid one in February so I am trying to resist. This one is such a versatile color. My plaid is more limiting.

    1. Yippee for warmer weather though!!!! I can see why it wouldn't make sense to buy it once the weather gets warmer. What color is your plaid one? I bet it'll be great in the fall.

  4. I hear you. The great weather we've been having lately has been a game changer. It really does help with mood and mindset. I know I feel better knowing also that distant learning will soon come to an end! Ha! On another note, I love your shacket! It's a great way to be comfy but also elevate a casual outfit. I don't own one yet but you make me want to get one. I live for comfort! Lol That house is stunning. It's such an eye candy! Love it. I hope you are having a great weekend so far!

    1. I am happy that you are near the finish line!!!! I know it's been a journey for you, and many others, but you are in the last stretch. I do love this coat and it's versatility, no regrets. I am actually going to try to resist adding a bunch of clothes this spring, I think I may focus on adding one or two pairs of new sandals instead.

  5. I do love strolling and deciding whether I would love to live in a particular house. It is fun! I didn't pick up a shacket this year but might next year! There were a couple that I liked. Glad the sun is out! It does make a nice difference in my mood and energy sometimes!

    1. I hear you, sometimes I go on with the trend and other times I just wait to see if it a) sticks around and b) I find something I really want to spend $ on.
