Olive and oxblood

Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Jacket: Express (in oxblood) | Necklace: Stella & Dot (budget option) | Jumpsuit: ExpressBracelet: Express | Shoes: BCBG | Polish: Zoya "Paris"

I know what you're thinking. No, no, no, it's not quite cool enough to wear a faux leather jacket. It's just that I bought this jacket last week, and I wanted to a) see what it looked like with this jumpsuit and b) convince you guys that you need it, too. I already have it in black and wore the heck out of it last year. I had been wanting oxblood, too, but had decided it was too late in the season last year to be buying any more jackets. Lucky for me it's back this season, so I decided to take advantage of some coupons and get it for $50 off.

I love the way it looks with the jumpsuit, and I can't wait to wear this exact combo when it cools down more! I mean, I loved the jumpsuit on its own - even better than the black one I already have, but the jacket just kicks it up a notch, dontcha think?

Even if you're not a fan of the jacket/jumpsuit combo - I do highly recommend the jacket. The fit is true to size and figure flattering. And it's deceivingly warm for how not bulky it is.

  7. I absolutely love this entire look!! I am a hugeeee fan of the jumpsuit and this one is pretty amazing! I just ordered the black leather seamed jacket yesterday after going back and forth debating if I should get the peplum version. I should have probably asked Gina her opinion lol! Love your coat though, maybe I'll just have to get the oxblood color too!

    Have a great day, pretty lady!

    1. You know, to this day, I still am not quite sure why they call it peplum! All I know is that the fit is amazing!

  8. I love this color combo, especially with the leopard pumps. So fun! I'm with Rachelle though, sadly my leather jackets don't get as much use here. #notcomplaining. But if they would make a twill moto jacket in that color I would be a very happy camper!

    1. I'm a little sad but then not about your climate and not needing a faux leather jacket. Mixed emotions on that issue! I was just telling Matt that fall is my favorite because of the layering and the crisp air! I hope you can find a warmer weather climate version of this jacket that you can use!

  10. Um, I ADORE this look. It's got everything I love about fall: olive, oxblood, and leopard. Also, I feel compelled to shop at Express more reading your blog... I don't frequent there and I'm obviously missing out!
