I love fall. I realize I’m about to inadvertently ally myself with scores of other teenage girls online who are all collectively shouting ”I LOVE FALL!!!”, so let me set myself apart with a few disclaimers. Sweaters are not my thing, I don’t like pumpkin spice (sorry), cute boots are virtually impossible to find in wide width, and aesthetics puzzle me (someone explain to me how they work? and what their purpose is?)
What do I love about fall? Cooler weather. Cooler weather means layers. Layers means leather jackets (yes, I know you saw that coming a mile away).
So while I’m waiting for it not to be 85 degrees every day, I thought I’d share the leather jacket outfits that I already have planned for when the weather gets its act together (COUGH COUGH get your act together east coast weather).
Also, for those wondering, the jacket in these flatlays is East 5th brand, purchased on ThredUp. I don’t think it’s sold anymore, but it’s a very common style, so I’m sure you could find one like it.
1. Skater dress and low-tops.
While it’s still hot, you can be assured that I’ll be wearing a leather jacket in the morning and the regretting it by 1pm. Which is why in early fall and late spring I wear it over a sleeveless dress so I can take the jacket off in case of heatstroke (kidding, kidding. I have not given myself heatstroke by wearing a leather jacket. Yet.)
Sneakers: Converse knockoffs from Amazon
2. Midi skirt and blue tee
Since things started opening up again, I’ve been enjoying having a reason to dress up. This outfit is a little warmer, but my church is always super air-conditioned, so I’ve been wearing it to Mass successfully without melting. It’s also pretty cute without the leather jacket.
Top: Banana Republic
3. Red jeans and button-down
Probably the look I’m most excited about, I’ve been waiting for the day it’s cool enough to wear this. Unfortunately that day hasn’t come just yet, but I’m ready for it. I usually wear the top tucked in, but it also looks great untucked or if you have an oversized top, you can tie it (fair warning, you will have to iron it afterwards).
Top: Old Navy
Favorite outfit and/or part of fall? Think I can be a fashion blogger now (haha)?
