As Soon As I Could

fall outfit layering ideas fashion and style

I mentioned a week or so ago about my Forever 21 fall haul and shared this jacket with you. (I am so sorry! It's sold out now, BUT here is a super similar one in tweed). I can't take the credit for finding it all on my own. My good friend Jenn got one last year and informed me that it was back in stock again. Thanks, Jenn for helping me spend money.  

I went straight for it as soon as the weather cooled down earlier this week. I also immediately slipped on my grey ankle boots that I have been hunting for what seems like forever. Another treasure? I finally found a feather trim hat. Old Navy had one last season, but it sold out. I told myself if I came across another one I wouldn't let it slip away again. I found the one I am wearing today at Nordstrom and it's less than $40. It's safe to say all three items are "I wore them as soon as I could" pieces and ones I can't wait to wear again...together and separately.

And because it seems like I subject I mention in every post, the weather has been glorious the last few days. Yesterday morning was in the 50s. That is practically freezing if you live in Texas. The afternoons have been filled with sunny skies, zero humidity and cool breezes. The only complaint I have is my allergies. I woke up Monday morning with a sore throat and have blown my nose at least 100 times. I guess it's a give and take situation, but I am willing to suffer a little for weather like this. Let's just hope it sticks around.

How stylish and edgy you look in this Fall Ensemble which I LOVE. The hat and jacket are my favorites. I am really liking the combo gray+olive, Shanna. =)

I'm loving the whole outfit, those boots and the hat are adorable. My partner is coming to Texas in a few weeks for the F1 GP, he works for one of the teams - I'm so jealous I'd love to come and hang out! X

E Mamakli said...

That jacket is an amazing find, I love friends enabling each other for shopping lol - I do that all the time :)) Joking aside, this is one lovely fall outfit. It is great you are having some almost fall like weather so you can get all these seasonal beauties out. I also love your hat as a big fan of winter hats myself. Have a very happy midweek lovely Shanna! XOXO, Elif

So fall, so pretty! I love the mix of gray, green and tan. It was 80 in VA yesterday and I almost cried. I had to change into shorts halfway through the day.

You really do find some great things at F21! I recently pinned a red and blue striped sweater with gingham image, only to click and find it was you and the sweater, which looked so expensive was F21. I need to go there more often!
