The Long and Short of It: How to Wear a Short Sleeve Jacket in the Fall/Winter

DSC_0045The weather in Charlotte this weekend has been amazing…  Honestly, I really shouldn’t just say the weekend, it’s been pretty incredible for awhile.  We’ve reached nearly 70 degrees for several days in a row and it feels great.  I guess the downside is that it puts a bit of a damper on the whole holiday “weather outside is frightful” thing but oh well…  I’m sure cooler weather will be coming soon.

What I’m Wearing: Kenya L Designs Blazer – purchase here, J. Crew Turtleneck, J. Crew Mid-Rise Skinnies, Quipid Riding Boots, Versona Accessories (new Versona Accessories I might add.  Just picked up that awesome necklace last weekend (on clearance no less))!!  Woo-hoo!

What’s your favorite way to layer?  Let me know.  Have a good week everyone!!!!

    • Very cool…. I can definitely see this style being “in” for men.

      And thanks for your perspective on the boots! I get that they may not work for everyone but I actually quite like them. And that is actually the great thing about fashion.

      Thanks for stopping by!
