it isn’t monday, but i’m singin’ the blues with a faux leather jacket anyway. a style tip for any woman in any climate is to lighten their color palette once the seasons begin to change. instead of black, opt for blue. exchange brown in favor of ivory. years ago, when we lived in the tropics, i had two distinct wardrobes. a dark color scheme for fall and winter, a light color scheme for spring and summer. even though the temperature never varied, my wardrobe had variety.
this time of year, i look forward to exchanging sweaters for blouses. but the lighter fabric just might not be warm enough to stand on its own. that’s when a third layer comes into play. what is a third layer? it’s that one piece of clothing that completes the outfit, whether it be a cardigan, jacket, or blazer. a third layer comes into play when the seasons change. not only will a third layer add pizazz and personality to your outfit, but it will give you an extra layer of warmth. now that’s a win/win.
lately, i’ve received a few emails asking me to feature lower-priced clothes. which is why i’m singin’ the blues in a faux leather jacket from Walmart. this faux leather jacket is from Scoop sold exclusively at Walmart. it ticks all the boxes for a chic yet oh-so-cool moto jacket. metal hardware – check. side zipper – check. affordable – check, check. okay, maybe faux leather jackets don’t need to fall under the affordable category, but all the better when it does. if you haven’t checked out the Scoop line, i highly recommend that you do. they offer the latest styles that will update your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
who else likes to mix luxe labels with lower-priced items? today’s ootd is proof style doesn’t have one pricepoint. it all starts with the baby blue faux leather jacket that looks adorable with a ruffle neck peasant blouse from Anthropologie. Anthro is my first stop for a boho-chic-inspired blouse infused with color. honestly, Anthropologie always has the cutest tops and tees that keep me at the top of my spring and summer style game. their blouses are feminine, fun, and flirty. what more can i say? but y’all know how much i love Ralph Lauren. these faded blue jeans hail from his collection, and they’re on sale! i’m wearing a size 29 for reference. add a pair of white mules from J.Crew (old, similar here, here, and here), and this ootd is in the books. btw white shoes are trending for spring. white boots too. and who can resist a pair of white sneakers last seen on SaaCA here?
