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 There were a couple of jackets in my collection that were either outdated, worn in places, or just did not fit me comfortably anymore so I donated them...to my daughter.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 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?
