Hello, friends!! It’s a new week…but I don’t know how I feel about it. My holiday break is over, and I’m back in Charleston for the first day of school. Why does it always go by so fast?? It feels like it was only a few days ago that I was headed to Charlotte for Christmas. I guess my favorite time of year is over, and now I just have to wait another 350 days for Christmas Eve 2018. Huhhhh, so sad.

Anyways, today brings one of my favorite outfits on the blog to date. This jacket is one of my favorite purchases of 2017. It comes in three colors in the leather version, and five colors in a suede version. I actually jut bought the suede version a couple weeks ago, and I cannot wait to wear it. It will be on the blog very soon. I think a cute jacket can make an outfit. You can throw it over a t-shirt and jeans, and the outfit will be instantly dressed up. It makes everything so easy. In this post I’m wearing a super simple black dress and black tights, and the leather jacket combined with the leopard booties makes the look something a little extra.

I hope you all are having a fantastic start to your week. My parents are coming this weekend to visit me, and I am counting down the days. Visits from the parents mean trips to the grocery store and maybe a little Target trip too. Have you seen their Valentine’s Day section??  So much pink, so little time. The perfect place to buy things you absolutely don’t need! My specialty!

Red Alert, people: Thanksgiving is next week!!! Praise the Lord! In just 10 days I will be stuffing my face with mac and cheese, casseroles of various sorts, and a medley of carbohydrates that will lead me to unbutton my jeans in satisfaction at the end of the day. Keep an eye out, because later this week I’ll be posting some ideas for what to wear for Thanksgiving, and I made sure to keep in mind the concealment of full stomachs, because that’s usually a pretty big concern of mine on the holiday.

On a different note, I wore this outfit one day while I was in Charlotte a couple weekends ago! I love the look of this lace top under the leather jacket! This jacket is from last year, but they brought the same jacket back this year, which I linked above, and it just has gold hardware instead of silver! It also comes in five colors, one of which being a metallic color. I’m not sure how I feel about it…It’s very bold, but I feel like it could be styled in really cute way! Go check it out and let me know what you think about it!

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! I’m just trying to make it through to the end!
