Result: When I searched for "burgundy jacket" on Pinterest, pairing it with a striped top was one of the most popular combinations. Because who doesn't like stripes? So I used my own pieces to put together a similar look (inspired mainly by the Brooklyn Blonde option on the far left below), and was happy enough with the outcome to wear it as-is.
One of the comments on my last post with my grey jacket (here) was that all of my outfits were very similar: skinny jeans, long necklace, pointy shoes. And it's true! Those are the things I like to wear the most so they're always on repeat. (Case in point: my first outfit above.) But I decided to try pushing out of my comfort zone a little bit this time and grabbed one of the few skirts I own to build my outfit around that:
Result: Every once in awhile I step outside my comfort zone and find a winner, and this outfit is one those times. I really loved it, and although it's a bit too dressy for my everyday life I think it would be fun for date night.
This look by @a_southerndrawl sealed the deal for me in purchasing the burgundy jacket (she posted it back in September when I was just thinking about getting it) because I knew I already had all the pieces for a similar look, so I had to give it a spin:
Express / Top: Express / Necklace: Express / Jeans: Express / Shoes: Nordstrom / Bag: Amazon
Result: I was sad I couldn't get a great picture of this outfit because it was probably my favorite of the four. I like white jeans about as much as I like moto jackets so I was confident this outfit would work for me and it didn't disappoint.
Express / Top: Express / Necklace: Kendra Scott (c/o) / Ring: Kendra Scott (c/o) / Jeans: Express (Similar) / Shoes: Target (Similar) / Bag: Amazon
Result: I shared this outfit when I wore it last week and I didn't have any particular inspiration for it. It's just a basic white top and jeans, but the jacket definitely made it look a lot less basic!
Here's a final front view look at all four outfits from this post:
Last time around I was three out of four with my outfit planning and this time it's four out of four. So now I have a total of seven outfits ready for fall...I just need fall weather to go with them! Carylee and I didn't exchange notes on this post so I have no idea how different or similar our outfits will be, but I'm excited to go check out her post to get some more ideas for styling this jacket and I hope you'll go check it out too!
