Aside from football my favorite part of fall is definitely the layering that commences. Ok maybe it’s the crispness in the air that causes the layering but I just feel so much more put together when I’m wearing a lot of items. This proves problematic with the humid and hot summer weather in the Carolinas because the only thing I hate more than wearing only one or two items of clothing is sweating. Like literally I die a little inside and start to panic when I sweat. I can’t think, I can’t have a conversation and I definitely can’t even try to feel cute. I’m neurotic and extreme like that.
So in order to be pleasant to be around and still feel cute I rely on the super thin shirt / jacket combo during the summer months. I typically wait and put on the jacket in the evening and don’t make it a habit to wear one while lounging around on brick steps in broad daylight. However, I took one for the team and sweated my face off after a summer rain storm to bring this look to the blog. So please, like it, comment on it, and definitely buy this (on sale) draped faux leather jacket. It’s really affordable, comes in four colors and is a great option for summer months when you don’t want to look super edgy but you also don’t want to wear a jean jacket (again).
Also… if you haven’t bought these shoes yet for less than $30 then shame on you.
