when i say i didn’t take off this Athleta Jacket while traveling, i mean it was pretty much glued to my back the entire time. Athleta contacted me to partner for their #PowerOfShe campaign right before my trip to Japan and i knew the blogging stars had aligned because i was desperately in need of a new jacket that could keep up with my upcoming explorations.
here’s a real fun fact about me: i am always cold. like, all. the. time. i’ve traveled enough to know that i need to bring two things everywhere i go on any trip…..a light blanket for planes, trains, and automobiles, and a durable jacket that’s easy to pack.
the weather in Japan in november was a little tough to pack for, as it was unseasonably warm in Tokyo but much chillier in the other areas of the country we were visiting. i found that this Rock Springs CYA Jacket was the absolute perfect layer for the entire trip. hence, i’m wearing it in literally every photo!
y’all….this jacket is a game changer for travel. not only is it warm, light weight, and comfy, but it packs so easily! being able to shove it in my suitcase or even my purse is so huge for me as i really dislike having to carry one extra thing, if i don’t need to. it’s casual enough to wear with jeans and these Athleta leggings – but i can also pull off wearing it to dinner. the breathability was probably my favorite feature as i never felt hot while running around to all of the sights and shrines we wanted to pack in on our trip. the double front zipper helped with managing different body temps, too. game changer, i tell ya!
