Tiny Taste of Fall

I got a tiny taste of fall when I was in Amsterdam a few weeks ago. Up until that point, I’d been pretty much in denial that summer would ever end, but the crisp breeze made me remember how much I actually do enjoy sweater weather. While I’m definitely not ready for sweaters and boots just yet, we had a tiny taste of fall here in Chicago and I happily broke out my new leather jacket.

In terms of getting dressed each day, it’s a weird in-between time for me. All of the new things I’ve purchased are mainly for fall and I feel pretty bored with my summer dresses. It’s all about those transition pieces, I suppose. For example, a sleeveless blouse that is great on it’s own now when it’s 90 degrees, but will also work layered under a leather jacket this fall! (This blouse I’m wearing is only $48, FYI! Such a steal.)

Up until now, I’d never had a real leather jacket. I designed a bronze and a black jacket in the softest faux leather last fall, and I still wear those jackets over and over. But a black leather jacket isn’t something I would wear enough to invest in, if that makes sense. So when I saw this green leather jacket, I was kind of hesitant to even try it on because I knew there was a good chance it was coming home with me. The fit was perfect so I just couldn’t say no! Green is my favorite color to wear, especially in the fall, and I love how it goes with absolutely everything. I actually scooped it up during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so I got it for such a great price!

I rounded up a few more leather jackets at Nordstrom that are an investment, but not too insanely priced… Most of these come in a few colors, too!

    I absolutely love the way you paired the sleeveless blouse with this leather jacket! Super practical and perfect for the fall transition. I live in Austin, TX, so there aren’t really seasons, but I’ll have to keep this green leather jacket in mind once it gets cold!

    I’ve been feeling the same way about my wardrobe lately – so sick of my summer clothes, but too soon to start pulling the sweaters off of their hangers. Transition pieces is definitely the way to go, especially here in Chicago! LOVE the white tank top.

    SUCH a great jacket – I’m a massive fan of statement pieces and have two leather jackets that I alternate throughout fall, can’t wait to get back into them!

    Love the jacket but I won’t look at jackets till October. Long range weather outlook for the northeast is a very warm September into October. I can never be sick of my summer clothes.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who has gotten bored with summer dresses. Don’t get me wrong I love navy and white dresses, but I’m ready for some jeans and a comfy sweater
