What I'm Loving: Cargo Jackets

Lately I have been seriously coveting cargo jackets! While on the online shopping hunt, I came across this crazy beautiful Preen army green and leather blazer. In the words of Rachel Zoe, “I die!” At almost $500, my credit card just about had a heart attack and refused to come out of its hiding place, so I had to settle for creating a virtual outfit instead. Now I know this isn't considered a cargo jacket but it has the military look I was going for. Can you tell I was feeling a tough girl vibe here? I figured since I could never afford this blazer anyway, I might as well style it with other completely unattainable pieces (at lease for my budget). See that beautiful black Alexander McQueen bustier? How about the Balenciaga leather and suede pants and swoon worthy purse? Each item retails at over $1700. Ah well, a girl can dream...

On the other hand, the Nars lipstick , Baublebar necklace, Essie nail polish, and Michael Kors sandals are right up my alley.

Here's how some other style bloggers have been showing their cargo love...

I especially love how Amanda (in the last picture) styled her J Crew cargo jacket with her super fun striped flats and Anthropologie skirt. These ladies have me coveting cargo jackets!

How about you – which jacket is your favourite? What are you currently loving?

Linking up today with Lauren's Style Sessions.
