DON’T JUDGE A TREND BY ONE LOOK

Details: Almond green bomber jacket Marshall’s, similar here | Embroidered weekender jeans c/o J.Jill, here |

I’ll admit, I really wasn’t a fan of the bomber jacket trend. Not the traditional bomber jacket, but the lightweight bomber ones. There was something about them that I couldn’t take seriously. It was an episode of Southern Charm where Chelsea was wearing this really cute metallic blush bomber jacket, that I said I NEED one. I went to so many stores, scoured the internet for something similar but there was nothing. I actually gave up and quit my search until I walked into Marshall’s and stumbled upon this Kensie almond green bomber jacket with black trim. It’s shiny–not exactly metallic, but it’s perfect. The weather has been so ideal for light bomber jacket weather, so you can imagine how much I’ve been wearing it. Then, there were embroidered jeans: another trend I really couldn’t get behind. I don’t know what it was about them that I didn’t like. I guess I kind of felt like they were tacky and outdated (not in a good way). Again, I was wrong. It just took the right embroidered jeans to change my mind. These Weekender jeans from J.Jill have blue and green stem flowers, making it understated and classy. I feel like when there’s a really bold color flower it’s difficult to style, but these go with everything. They”re super versatile and a really fun way to change up your wardrobe in the fall months. I guess I need to take my own advice and not judge a trend by one or two looks… you have to try it out for yourself.

What trends were you wrong about?

THE SWEATER THAT STOLE MY HEART

Details: Light Shawl Collar Topper c/o J.Jill, here |

It certainly doesn’t feel like fall today, but it’s not gonna stop me from sharing another cozy knit today. I probably have like 4 or 5 of the same sweater. I like neutral colors (taupe, brown, black and beige) and a chunky, mock or high collar. When I shop for pullovers I make sure they are petite, but when I’m in the market for long cardigans, I tend to go big and baggy. This heather red shawl collar topper is one cardigan I can’t wait to cuddle up in all season long. It is in fact available in petite and tall, but it still has that nice oversized effect without appearing like I’m taking a swim in some knitwear. It’s a rare color for me, but because it has that heather effect, I can wear it with a variety of colors and garments. I haven’t tried it yet, but I think it would like super cute over a sleek black dress. Putting it on my “to-try” list. I really kept this look simple, with a black top and true blue denim jeans, but it’s easy enough to mix and match. I know I shouldn’t, but I’m eyeing a few more serious J.Jill must-haves including this boat neck tunic in cream,  another topper, this long cardi and yet another topper.

What are some of your favorite fall knits?!

STAPLE OF THE SEASON

Details: LOFT denim jacket, here | American Eagle flannel via Marshall’s, similar here |

Fall is in the air…for now! I spent some time going through my closet last weekend, to begin purging and swapping out seasons. I was able to clear out a good deal of clothing, but there were some pieces I just wasn’t ready to part with. It’s kind of funny, but the only jean jacket I had in my closet until this beauty from the LOFT, is one from Abercrombie & Fitch. It is literally from my 8th-grade wardrobe. It’s easy enough to style, but the arms are so bulky and the color is a tad outdated. So when I was shopping my heart out at LOFT last week I spotted this perfectly fitted denim jacket and knew it was destined to be hanging in my closet. I absolutely LOVE the fit, mostly because it’s petite–woo! It really couldn’t fit any better–it’s not too long or short, its proportionate to my body and looks good with just about anything. Even though we’ve only had a few days of fall-like temps, it has definitely already become a staple this season. I still have to learn how to let go of clothing and I need to reign in my current clothing consumption, but classics like this one just can’t be overlooked.

What are some of your favorite fall staples!?
