Shades of Brown

IMG_0513

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.

Casual Friday

IMG_2877

Is it just me, or do Fridays always seem busier and crazier than every other day of the work week?! On those busy and hectic days, I love embracing “casual Friday” and putting on a more comfortable outfit that is easy for running around in.  Darker jeans look very put together and more formal than their lighter counterparts (as long as they are allowed in your work place!)  I have always paired flannels with conventional fall-layering outfits like this one, but with the right heels and blazer I think they can add just the right amount of fun to a professional ensemble as well!IMG_2885 IMG_2891 IMG_2893 IMG_2894 IMG_2914 IMG_2935 IMG_2947 IMG_2955 IMG_2975

Outfit Details- Plaid Flannel: Old Navy (old, similar here, also love this one) | Blazer: GAP (old, similar here) | Jeans: Lucky Brand | Belt: Lucky Brand (old, similar here and here) | Heels: Banana Republic (old, love this similar SJP pair) | iPhone Case: Kate Spade New York | Earrings: Banana Republic (sold out, similar here) | Necklace: J.Crew (sold out online, similar here) | Rings: Lucky Brand, Nordstrom Rack | Purse: Target (also love this one and this one)
