Jackets Everywhere


Fall is the time where jackets come out. Not your typical ugly puffy winter coats that are just needed to keep you warm, but the jackets that are there to keep the outfit extra stylish.

In my opinion, my favorite fall jacket would be my black leather jacket. It is not completely leather and has some different material accents, and it almost looks like a blazer because of how it droops down in the front. It is the leather jacket that you can wear with a T-shirt and vans during the day, and booties and a red lip at night. It is the first thing I pull out of my winter and fall clothes because I already have outfits planned in my head that will look perfect with it.

I got this jacket last year for Christmas and ever since it has been my go to piece.

What is your favorite fall jacket? Do you still rock your jean jacket with a fluffy infinity scarf? Or do you rock the military jacket from Urban Outfitters that you saved up your money for because it was a little too expensive? Or your black trench coat that you think makes you look super sleek and like you are walking out of a Cosmo photo shoot?


I mean come on, jackets are wonderful. You can stay warm and continue to look fabulous. Who wouldn’t have it both ways? I know I hate it when it starts getting too cold outside because that is when my white puffy marshmallow jacket comes out and I look like I am ready to be roasted in the fire and put in between some chocolate and graham crackers. Yes, I look like I belong on a smore. A deliciously large smore.

Reasoning behind this post? I just really love my leather jacket and I wanted to share that with you wonderful people.

Lately many actors have been taking a walk on the wild side, and rocking animal print in certain parts of their outfits. Singer and actress Selena Gomez incorporated a little, yet sophisticated amount of cheetah print into her wardrobe and shown her awesome sense of shoe style, rocking some cheetah print stiletto’s with some leather leggings and a beautiful blazer. This outfit is perfect for a night out on the town with your best friends!


Another beautiful singer and actress, Jennifer Lopez, paired some over the knee stiletto boots with a cheetah print jacket. This jacket is a little much for something that I would wear, but JLo makes it look so beautiful on her curvy body!

For those of you who do not want to jump directly into this wild style, you can buy accessories with a little bit of animal print on it. This way, you can see if you feel comfortable in such a fashion forward pattern.

Along with your regular outfits, you can add a cheetah print belt, scarf or flats. Steve Madden has a great collection of animal print heels, flats and boots. Here are some flats that would look awesome with some boyfriend jeans and a plaid shirt.


If those statement shoes are even too much for you, and many would say so, I would wear that same blazer and put on a cheetah print belt. Here is a picture where they look great together.


Just a couple ways to bring this beautiful print into your life! Hope you enjoy:)


How do you say “I love you”?


We were asked to be part of this unbelievable Wedding shoot and of course we were honored.
