Fall Outfit Ideas: Plum and Suede

Today I bring to you the most un-summer outfit ever for mid-July. But with good reason — my very favorite suede jacket in the whole wide world (#dramatic) is a part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! And I’ve got limited time before this sweet baby comes into the world so why not talk suede in July? Because let me tell you, this jacket will be a favorite this fall. This sale always makes me so excited for fall, unnaturally so since we live in Texas and our true fall lasts a good 2-3 weeks if we are lucky. But suede is always in season (okay maybe not summer, but 3 out of 4 ain’t bad). You can find the jacket in two colors here!

I’d say the jacket is the real show stopper and it’s currently $125, which will go back up to $188 after the sale. This dress is non-maternity and it’s a lovely, stretchy knit dress. Anything stretchy these days is lovely. I sized up (obvs) but pre-pregnancy I would definitely go true to size. It is a body-con dress but it doesn’t feel too tight and it doesn’t show too much. I say this as my baby bump is literally all you see, but you know what I mean. It’s got pretty good coverage! And I love this plum color but I’d be lying to you if I said I didn’t also buy it in grey. These will get me through the summer slump, for sure.

I’m so curious what you’ve picked up from the sale! I’m getting my post of what I bought together for this week, but want to hear the deals you found!

Editor's Notes:

Jacket is true to size! And I would stay true to size on the midi-dress as well, it’s not too tight — promise! Rag & Bone Booties I sized up to a 41 (I’m a 10). I typically do this with Rag and Bone boots anyways.

    Plum is very pretty color. Lookin good with that baby bump. I just had baby few months ago. Enjoy those final days of pregnancy. You will miss that identity of pregnant. It goes to fast. Get lots of sleep now and lots of dates. Newborns take a lot of energy, but you will love that new baby.

  9. You look STUNNING in this. Not only do I love the color combo, but that body con dress is super flattering, and the jacket adds the perfect edgy tough. Gorg!

    I love the colors in this post. I’ll admit once July 4 is over I find myself creeping towards plums and burgundies.

    You look beautiful!

    I’ve seen some reviews that say the dress is see through but it doesn’t appear so in your pictures. Waiting for my order to come to check out for myself! 🙂

    I bought that jacket at the Nordstrom sale, and now that it’s finally cool enough to wear it, I’ve been having some trouble deciding what color of shoes to wear with it! Thank you for the inspo!
