Happy Thursday! Sorry about my lack in post this week but my mom is in town and she is top priority. I just love her so much. I wish she could stay here forever!! #mommasgirl I had a great extended weekend. I have to say, I do have the best job. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: OFF. Five day weekend, three day week - still not over how lucky I am. And my mom is here till Sunday? Super lucky.
Every year I tell myself that I'm going to invest in more coats but of course I never do. Mainly because outerwear can be so freakin' expensive. But when you literally live in jackets/coats for the majority of the year, you need some sort of variety. So when I saw that Asos was having a major sale on outerwear, I jumped on it quick. The original price on this super cute statement jacket was $77.39 and guess how much I paid for it? $27! Crazy, right?
When I got it in the mail, it exceeded all of my expectations. Statement jackets are a great way to spice up a basic outfit, especially if you plan on spending time outside and want to show off your style. This white jacket with its blue and red stripes is a total mood booster. I know I'll be reaching for it time and time again when I need a break from my go-to black. I wore a turtleneck to peek through the jacket and some comfy sneakers for a cute and casual day at work. Speaking of work, this tote bag is perfect for all the stuff I "need" to bring with me( ie. notebook, blog planner, and a magazine.) because as I always say "you never know". :)
Anyway, I'm sure you get it by now but it doesn't hurt to rub it in a little more. Outerwear is a huge part of your fall/winter wardrobe. It can make or break your outfit. So if you take away at least one piece of advice from me, let it be this one: invest in your outerwear. The one I'm wearing here is still on sale if you're interested in snatching it up for yourself!
