Casual Fall Date Night with Paystub Jacket
Greetings from the great state of Maine! I’m here for a few days visiting family and enjoying some R&R, but I’m popping on for a few minutes to share a casual fall date night look featuring this lightweight jacket and a lace trim cami.
This is the type of outfit I’d wear on a warmer fall day to go out to dinner with my husband or to meet girlfriends for lunch… yes, my social life pretty much revolves around food!
This jacket immediately caught my eye when I saw it online because it has a hint of moto styling, which I love, but it’s different from your average leather or suede jacket. The lightweight silky material makes it perfect for this in between season when it’s still quite warm outside.
It comes in grey and tan, and of course I chose the grey, which they call Paystub. For size reference, I have the medium. I find this brand tends to run slightly small.
This jacket will look great with so many bottoms, but I thought it worked particularly well with these light wash bootcut jeans for a more rugged vibe. Then the lace trim cami and suede peep-toe booties provide a dressy contrast that keeps the look modern and sophisticated.
These jeans are already under $100 plus they’re on sale, so a really good value if you’re looking for bootcut jeans to add to your fall wardrobe. Sizes are a bit picked over on this particular pair, unfortunately, but they come in a few other colors as well as plus sizes.
For reference, I’m wearing a 6, and they do stretch some with wear, so I recommend going with your smaller size if in between.
I carried a stone colored bag with silver hardware because I like how it coordinates but doesn’t match.
I’ve talked a lot about this bag already, but if you’re new or you missed it before, this is pretty much the perfect everyday bag. The leather is so luxurious and soft, the strap is a great length for throwing over the shoulder, and the studded details give it a rugged contrast. I also like that it’s unlined inside and it has two compartments for organization. Mine is the putty color.
This cami is a bit out of my norm, but I actually had a reader request that I style it. I like that the straps are adjustable (I think I could have let them down just a bit; the hem is maybe an inch too short) and the lace detail is pretty and feminine. For size reference, I’m wearing the medium.
I’m wearing a strapless bra, of course — I highly recommend this Wacoal strapless bra if you’re looking for one that is comfortable and flattering.
I’m a big fan of Coco Chanel’s less-is-more philosophy of accessorizing — you’ve probably heard her famous quote: Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off. I don’t usually wear three pieces of jewelry that are fairly equal in weight, but since these are all on the delicate side of the spectrum, I think it works.
