Zara Printed Jacket | The Style Scribe

When I’m traveling, I always like to keep a light jacket or sweater on me – I tend to get chilly on planes. I’m sure some of you can relate! Last week when I was shopping for my Cali trip, I found this Zara gem of a jacket heavily marked down during their sale. I think I got it for $59! While it’s not available online, there were several of these jackets at the Dallas Galleria, so I’d check your local Zara to see if there are others still available. The casual and comfortable fit make it ideal for long travel days, while the fashion-forward print and pretty color combo enable it to go from day to night with just a simple switch of accessories. I wore these jeans, my Chanel sandals (similar pair here) and my Smythson tote on the plane, but once we got into Carlsbad, I changed into these shorts, a pretty pair of burgundy pumps and my Gucci crossbody for a more fun night-out look.

When we first arrived in San Diego, we hopped on over to Hotel Del Coronado for lunch – if you’re unfamiliar, Hotel Del is home to where Some Like It Hot was filmed back in the 50′s! It’s a grand old hotel with a lot of history (and chock full of tourists, unfortunately). After a yummy lunch (I had a huge crab cake BLT – insane!), my sister and I stopped in the Museum of Contemporary Art before driving north to Carlsbad. Since we were all two hours ahead still, it was a rather early night for our whole group. Sadly my vacation ends tomorrow – I’m heading back on a 1:50pm flight to Dallas! More to come from my trip next week – hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Another piece you could pick up for the rest of the summer + next spring is this simple silk shift. Such a gorgeous piece! If you’re crazy about mixed prints, try this florals + stripes blouse.

JOIE SALE PICKS

 Joie is also offering an extra 20% off their sale items too! I could have really used this baja poncho top on my Cali trip – isn’t it so festive and adorable? At the beginning of the season, I fell head over heels in love with this pale blue linen blazer + shorts set (also comes in a skirt too). Speaking of skirts, remember this pleated number from the presentation last September? If you do, you may also recall this cheeky Oui Oui tee that I took a pic of. Gotta have it! Also love this peasant top with tassels. Click here to shop the sale and be sure to enter code EXTRA20OFF to save!
