Shades of Brown



This faux leather jacket from Express is one of my go to’s for casual weekend layering for fall and winter.  My faux leather jackets are definitely one of my fashion must haves (I wear them under parkas during the winter so I have an extra layer on when I’m inside), and I’ve always been a big fan of brown- either as a neutral, or in varying shades by itself.  My sister and I have this exact same jacket and riding boots, and showed up to our brother’s high school football game wearing them and sweaters in this exact latte color- we actually match accidentally pretty often!  If that doesn’t speak to the functionality of this color combo, I don’t know what would!  I love how this jacket can add a touch of edge and glam to even a turtleneck!  As far as turtlenecks go, this one is a definite winner.  I love how it’s still a warm and chunky knit, but is more fitted than most turtlenecks, so it isn’t totally shapeless and unflattering.


Outfit Details – Jacket: Express | Turtleneck: J.Crew | Jeans: Lucky Brand | Boots: Merona (last year, this year’s styles here and here) | Clutch: Charming Charlie | Ring: Banana Republic | Earrings: Banana Republic (similar here) | Belt: Lucky Brand

Hope you’re all enjoying your MLK Day!  Thanks for stopping by!
