If you could only add one more jacket to your wardrobe, make sure it’s a moto jacket. Why, you ask? Simply because it’s a style that can be paired with just about any look. Pair it with your t-shirt and jeans outfit but also, pair it with a dress or skirt. The jacket accentuates a more rugged feel to a look with a tee and distressed jeans. It can contrast a feminine dress or skirt look and give it an overall, more interesting vibe. Any way you pair it, there is no wrong way!

Blush pink moto jacket – Ann Taylor (2 colors) (similar here & here {both under $68})

Funnelneck shirt – J.Crew (6 colors!) [last styled here] (similar here {3 colors} & here {2 colors})

I’ve only recently been able to participate in sweater weather due to the warm November here. I picked up this sweater about a month ago and absolutely love it. The sweater is a gorgeous striped pink and off-white color combination. With the medium to heavy weight construction, it feels much more luxurious than its actual price tag. And, it’s also 100% cotton so I can actually put in the laundry without a second thought. Winning, all around! I would hurry to pick it up before sizes run out since it’s now marked down to only $18!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy blazer – J.Crew (this season’s budget friendly version (similar here & here {love the pinstripes})

#flatlay Friday & weekend links

outfits, Round up comment

Happy Friday, friends! Often, outfits don’t make it to the blog, simply because of lack of time. I’ll be starting a new series with an inspiration outfit and also, finds from the week to help you unwind just in time for the weekend. So, without further ado…

Striped dress | navy sleeveless sweater vest / cardigan | pink clutch | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Navy sweater vest (similar, similar)

Striped dress – Joie (similar, similar)
Last seen styled 4 ways: here, here, here, here

Pink clutch (similar, similar {charging wristlet})

 
This week’s finds…
• Just got these charcoal grey leggings in the mail and they are exactly what I have been wanting: thick, don’t stretch in a way that gives you diaper butt, and aren’t see through! A win-win all around.

• A knotted belt has been on my wishlist for awhile now. These two black and brown options (both under $17) are perfect for pants and also, defining the waistline with dresses and skirts.

• Banana Republic’s friends and family event is going on through Nov 6 (40% off entire purchase with code BRFAMILY). This dress mysteriously made it into my shopping cart…

• I’ve been making these 3 ingredient “cookies” for my toddler but stumbled across this apple cinnamon version that sounds oh-so-yummy

• The unofficial uniform of venture capitalists in Silicon Valley is the fleece vest

• Home decorating? Visualize that couch you have your eye on before you buy in your existing space

• Currently listening: Dirty John podcast – “Debra Newell is a successful interior designer. She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders. But her family doesn’t like John, and they get entangled in an increasingly complex web of love, deception, forgiveness, denial, and ultimately, survival.”

• One of the cutest sheep seen this Halloween
