Ok I admit it. I am starting to really like this cargo jacket from Old Navy. I bought it, not knowing if I would have many occasions to wear it, but so far I’ve found a ton! It can obviously be styled more casually with jeans (that was a given for me), but I’ve also worn it as a layering piece during a travel day for our cruise, and I was able to wear it to the office with a dress.
And yesterday, I busted out the jacket yet again! I needed a casual yet put together look as I would be doing a lot of walking, moving about, etc.

I work for a nonprofit doing marketing and PR and sometimes it can be stressful and incredibly busy, but the built-in perk is that we have a ton of opportunities to volunteer and visit the schools and students where our programs are implemented. So in honor of National Volunteer Week, I delivered books to local elementary school students that don’t have any to call their own. Seeing the students’ faces when they got books was an awesome feeling. These kids had huge smiles, shook my hand, looked me in the eye and said things like “thank you for the books” and “I will treat these well” and “thank you for believing in me.” Wow. Definitely puts things back in perspective when you are having a bad day, right?!
