Embroidered Faux Leather Burgundy Jacket And A New Blanket Scarf

Even though I already had a plethora of spring and fall jackets, when CJBanks had a huge sale on jackets recently, I decided to do some purging and updating of my outerwear.  There were a couple of jackets in my collection that were either outdated, worn in places, or just did not fit me comfortably anymore so I donated my daughter.  I've since purchased three new ones, a grey corduroy jacket previously shown HERE, a black quilted jacket (not posted yet), and this embroidered faux leather jacket.  I got them all for less than $24.00 and as I write this post, this jacket is still on sale HERE.

 I styled my jacket with a new blanket scarf from Charlotte Russe.   I already had a blanket scarf with a lot of red tones (see that scarf HERE)  but I wanted one that was a tad smaller, and had burgundy/grey tones to go with my other jackets.  I purchased mine for $10.00 in-store but unfortunately I cannot find it on their website.

I love the embroidery on this jacket and the zipper pockets.  I can put my gloves inside and know they won't slip out!

Underneath the jacket I wore a simple charcoal heather turtleneck from Worthington and a long silver necklace for when the blanket scarf came off.  I also wore long black and silver drop earrings.

Here is the look of the jacket without the blanket scarf.  I carried a black and brown Liz Claiborne bag.  My pants are St. John's Bay Black Straight Leg Jeans.

I love how classy outerwear instantly dresses up a simple outfit.  During the fall/winter season, I mostly just run from car to building and don't stay anywhere indoors for very long, so most people only see my outerwear.  A variety of coats, cute scarves and boots is all I need to stay stylish during the colder months.

I always prefer to wear grey booties with black pants.  I bought these Blowfish Booties last year, but they have a similar style available at DSW.

My silver necklace came with a shirt I bought at JCPenney.  Don't you love it when shirts come with necklaces that can be used with other tops?

Have a Great Day!  Amy
