My Favorite Plaid Jacket

Would you believe me if I told you I have a whole side of a closet dedicated to coats and jackets? I may or may not have an addiction. I think coats are such an important part of an outfit because they can add the finishing touch so easily. Plus, coats are a necessity in the winter!

 

I love this plaid jacket from Antrhopologie. For one, the colors are just perfect, and the cut is so cute too. It is made of wool, so it is a very warm material, but I have also worn it in California in the spring and it was a perfect layer. It can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion as well.

In this look, I wore it with black pants, but I have also worn it with jeans and booties as well as a over a dress. It really just depends on whatever vibe you are going for.

5 Outfits Under $150

I love reading posts that put together affordable outfit options. It is so fun to stay on trend while staying on budget. I’ve gone back and picked out 5 outfits and found affordable options to copy each. Let me know what your favorite look is down in the comments!

 
1.

This first look is one of my favorite casual but chic looks. I love this oversized button up because it is so comfy but it reminds me of the Balenciaga button up. The white boots add a pop of color with the more neutral black jeans.

This is such an easy look for a night out. A black romper is so easy to throw on, and I paired it with blue velvet booties for a bit of flair. The wristlet allows for easy access to your money, phone, etc. without carrying a big purse.

This is one of my favorite looks. It is actually a fitted black shirt with a black denim skirt, but to make it easy, you could do a black bodysuit. I also threw on a duster and some black booties.

This is definitely a go to look for a day of errands or just a casual day out. You can’t go wrong with a pair of high waisted jeans and a tee. I paired this look with the same velvet booties as the romper. They add some fun to a plain outfit, but you could easily add mules or sneakers for a more casual look.

This look makes me feel so put together and polished. The red coat is a Kate Spade coat I received for my birthday a few years ago, and I absolutely love it. Underneath is a black t-shirt and a black denim skirt, but a black body con dress is just as easy.

3 Ways To Dress Like Your Dad

So I’m sure everyone has seen the whole dad sneaker trend happening, and while I do not know where I stand on that fashion statement, there are plenty of other dad trends that I can support. Who knew I could create a whole new fall look without spending any money?!

 

1.

This first idea is nothing special seeing as how I’ve been stealing my dad’s sweaters since I was in high school, but it is definitely a trend that I want to keep alive. I love pairing a big sweater with super tight skinny jeans and booties, because it is a cozy but cute look.

2.

Next, is a look that I cannot wait to try. I know people have been wearing this trend for a few months now, but I simply cannot bring myself to wear a blazer in the dead of summer without passing out. I love the look of a “dad blazer” otherwise known as an oversized blazer with a pair of skinny jeans and a body suit and booties. (Outfit Inspo - Danielle Bernstein) I also love it over a fitted dress for a dressier look. Whichever direction you take it, I would recommend wearing fitted clothes under the blazer so you still have a nice silhouette.

3.

This last look is one of my favorites. I love wearing oversized dress shirts year round. During the summer I would wear them with shorts and just tuck in one side. During the winter, they go great with jeans and the same tuck or as a dress with a sweater on top. If you wear them as a dress, they look great with tall boots. (Outfit Inspo - Allegra Shaw)

 

Tip: If you do not have access to clothes you can create these looks from at home, simply order the piece you want a few sizes up. That way it looks like you just pulled it out of your dad’s closet.
