Do you ever get outfit crushes on strangers you see? I always like to keep my eyes open and especially when we travel I tend to find that one girl that I love to remember her outfit as inspiration later. A few weeks ago I was in Dallas and I saw a girl wearing the hell out of a suede jacket. I had my eye on one at Nordstrom since late last fall but never really pulled the trigger. I took this stranger’s polished style as confirmation to find a suede jacket. When I went to buy the jacket it was marked 50% off (another sign) and my size was the only one left — this was basically the hand writing on the wall here. I told my love for jackets lately right? Okay, just so you’re warned. (Also I hate telling you about a jacket that I bought on sale and then when I go to post it’s completely sold out. I did link a similar full price option and a similar under $150 option to the right. Sometimes sales just move too fast for me! Apparently I wasn’t the only one waiting on this jacket.)
Let’s talk dresses, specifically this dress. It’s no secret I love dresses, but this dress I’ve particularly loved lately. It’s in that great transition style — long sleeve but short, lightweight fabric but easy to layer. I wore this a few weeks ago when it was a bit cooler with black tights and a black moto jacket. And then last week with a denim jacket and mules. (See my shop girl selfie here!) It’s so versatile, which isn’t always true for dresses. But when a versatile dress comes along, it’s a keeper for sure. And when my love for jackets and dresses combine, it’s just a match made in heaven for me.
