The Perfect Fall Jacket

Top: J. Crew Factory (not in stock) || Jacket: J. Crew (found it on thredUP for a fraction of the cost) || Jeans: Joes Jeans || Boots: J. Crew (similar pair) || Earrings: Kate Spade (gift from a friend) || Necklace: Kendra Scott || Ring: Tiffany & Co. ||

This morning it felt like fall! Seriously, it was chilly enough that I should have considered a hot latte instead of my usual iced caramel macchiato. I have been waiting for almost a month to bring out this marvelous jacket. I cannot believe that I found it on thredUP for 75% off of retail price! If you haven't heard of thredUP, check out this previous post (psst--there's a $10 credit for new users).

For some reason, I have been lusting over these jackets for a few seasons now. I just couldn't bring myself to spend $150 on a jacket. Here's the deal, I love designer things--but I never pay full price. I kid you not; TJ Maxx stole my life motto: never pay full price for fabulous. It seriously felt like every girl on Instagram had one of these field jackets but me. Well, that changes today! I am now a member of the cool kids club, eekkkk! I hope there is a secret handshake. Call me basic, but I am 100% totally down with it.

The Perfect Fall Jacket

If you don't have one of these puppies and don't want to spend $150--today is your lucky day! Seriously, this jacket is ideal for that weird fall ---> winter transition. They give you that layered look without all of the hassle, just grab and go out the door, girl!

Utility Jacket 
This jacket is on sale right now for $31.99. There are not a lot of sizes left online. However, you might get lucky enough to find a store close to you that has one in stock. It has great reviews from happy customers! Important lesson, it's okay to phone a friend and ask her to check her local Target, just saying.

Twill Utility Anorak
This jacket is very similar to the one above. It has a nice drawstring waist to add some definition and shape. This particular style comes in numerous different colors. If you are not feeling this army green vibe, you could total change it up! Oh yeah, and it's only $31.99 at Target!

The Downtown Field Jacket
This is the jacket that I am wearing in the photo above. I feel like they make it every season in different colors. I love all of the gold details from the zipper to the snap buttons. Right now, it's on sale for $99 and there is a coupon code for additional savings (use code YESPLEASE). If you are looking to splurge, I highly recommend this jacket!

Lined Freeport Field Jacket
This jacket is $99 and comes in the beautiful olive gray color. Bonus, it's lined with extra-soft fleece. This bad boy would be perfect for visiting the pumpkin patch or jumping in the leaves. Your Instagram game will be leveling up! There is also a promo code for 20% off when you spend $50 (use code SAVE20).

Alright my friends, I hope that you have found the jacket of your dreams (for a fraction of the cost). If you already own one, kudos for you being a stylish babe!  What's your preferred way to style this jacket? I can't wait to hear your ideas!

Wine Colored Shoes at ModCloth

Wine Colored Shoes at ModCloth

October is my second favorite month of the entire year, followed by December (because of Christmas, duh). All month long I will be celebrating my birthday! This year I will be turning 28 on the October 28. How cool is that (I am trying not to freak out about almost being 30)!? To celebrate, we are going on a couples trip to Napa Valley. That's where Jered and I had our honeymoon. I can't wait to be back in wine country with him and our sweet friends. We already have dinner reservations at The French Laundry. Usually, this place is so hard to get into for dinner; they take reservations one month in advance. I was so surprised to hear a voice at the other end of the phone when I called! Anywho, I would love to hear your winery recommendations; we are working on our plan and have room for a few more tastings.

Obviously, I have wine on my mind. This gorgeous dark red wine color seems to be everywhere you turn! I have found four different pairs of shoes, two heels and two flats in this fun color. They are each under $100 from ModCloth. These shoes would be an easy way to add this popular color to your wardrobe.  If you have never ordered anything from ModCloth, you can save 20% off your entire order! Girl, you know I am all about the savings! If you are a ModCloth regular, then you know that you get free shipping on orders $75 or more.

Going Through the Loco-Motions Heel in Maroon Velvet
Just look at these gorgeous little ladies! You can wear these to the office and beyond. I am really into the retro vibes they give me. For some reason, I could see my Nana telling me she had a pair like these back in the day. Also, can we take a moment to do a happy dance for chunky heels? They give me confidence that I am not going to fall on my face in front of everyone and embarrass myself.

Cue the Classics Heel in Wine
If you thought the previous pair was a little too much of a heel for you, these should make you happy. This heel measures at 2.5 inches, just enough to give you a little somethin' something. These would be the perfect accompaniment to a navy and wine striped dress I have hanging in my closet! The thing that catches my eye about these heels is the price. I cannot believe that these beautiful babes are under $40!

Long Beach Bash Slip-on Sneaker in Burgundy
Three cheers for comfortable weekend shoes! Honestly, these are cute enough that you could pull them off on a casual Friday paired with boyfriend jeans and a matching sweater. I could see me sipping a caramel latte on an early Saturday morning at my favorite coffee shop rocking these sweet kicks. These will be a conversation starter with total strangers. Everyone will be asking, where did you get your shoes?

Every Day of the Sleek Flat in Burgundy
Okay, I can almost hear you judging these shoes. I know these are not my usual style, but there is something charming about them. Right now, I kind of like that ladies fashion is taking notes from the men. These are a traditional Oxford flat. To make them have a feminine feel, I would pair them with a fall floral print tunic. However, if you are feeling edgy, rock them with a pair of skinny cuffed and own it, girl! The first rule of fashion--there are no rules!

Okay friends, how do you feel about this wine color for fall? Are you adding a few items to your closet to stay on trend? I would love to hear from you. Which of these shoes speak to your style?
