Suede Moto + Snakeskin Booties
Well, good morning! I feel like the shotgun just went off and the race has begun. I’ve got quite a week ahead between personal family plans and work commitments — including but not limited to the biggest sale weekend of the year.
I’d love to hear what (if anything) y’all are shopping for this weekend. I’ll be visiting my family in Virginia, so I won’t be online as much as I usually am, but I’m prepping my Guide to Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sales that I hope will go live later today. Then I’ll just need to keep it updated throughout the weekend.
The sales are already starting, and while they tend to get better as the week goes on, a lot of stores are running selective sales that change daily, and they can be amazing if you know what you’re looking for.
For example, today J.Crew has select products 50% off with code GOLDENDEAL. Every day those select products will change, but today they include their 9″ toothpick jeans in velvet (similar to the Paige pair I styled on Friday) and these adorable velvet tanks (I already ordered one at 30% off, boo.)
Other retailers are doing similar promos, so be sure you’re signed up for my email newsletter, where I’m highlighting the best deals I see each day, and also be watching my Facebook Page and Instagram Story for real time updates and flash sales!
Also, don’t trust those platforms to just show you what I’m posting in your feed. You’ll want to check out my pages periodically because the algorithms aren’t very friendly to blogs and businesses, especially when we use trigger words like “sale” and “% off” — yes, they’re that smart! Facebook and Instagram don’t show those posts to most of our audience in their feeds because they want us to pay for ads, which I do sometimes, but I can’t do it for all my posts.
So yeah, check in often as you’re shopping this week and weekend, and I’ll do my best to keep you posted of the very best deals.
Moving on to today’s look…
Suede Moto + Snakeskin Booties
This jacket is from last year, and I was thrilled to discover that they brought it back AND put it on sale. It’s so gorgeous and quite comfortable, but definitely size up one. I have the medium, and it’s fine over thin sweaters, but a little snug over thicker sweaters.
I wore my go-to AG raw hem legging ankle jeans — these are the ones with a raw hem but no other distressing. They’re nice for those of you who aren’t a fan of rips and tears but want a casual, lived-in look that you can dress up or down.
These jeans are $50 off at Bloomingdale’s right now, which is a nice discount, but I’ve seen them lower. I have my usual size 28 but they’re a little snug. (I bought them 5 pounds ago, ha!) I would recommend going up in these if you’re in between because I have other AG legging ankle jeans in a 28 that fit great.
I played around with cuffing or not cuffing with these booties, and while the nice, neat cuff like I’m wearing here seems to be on its way out right now, I still felt like it was the most flattering way to style these jeans and booties together. The jeans aren’t tight enough at the ankle to tuck into the booties without bulging in an awkward way, and left uncuffed without tucking looked sloppy to me.
So let’s discuss these boots… I had been wanting a pair of snakeskin booties for a while, and I had to kiss a few frogs before I found my prince, so to speak! Dolce Vita is usually a pretty solid brand for leather boots, and while they’re on the pricier side for a trendy style, I was afraid cheaper snakeskin boots would look, well, cheap.
I really wanted this Marc Jacobs pair, and I’m still drooling over them, but I didn’t want to go quite that high in price, so these seemed like a happy medium. I love the neutral grey and taupe tones — so versatile, and they have a comfortable 2.6″ heel.
They’re comfortable and quite walkable, but I’m afraid the top of the shaft will start to irritate my leg eventually, so I’ll probably wear socks with these. In fact, I just ordered these in the charcoal grey.
This sweater is another piece that was brought back for another season. I have it in the Hthr Burgundy from last year, and I ordered the Hthr Cement a few weeks ago.
For size reference, I went up to a medium in this one. I like the fit better than my burgundy one, which I have in a small. It’s that supersoft, stretchy sweater material that is so popular right now, and it retains its shape amazingly well. You can’t really tug on it to stretch it out like you can with other types of sweaters, so you want to make sure to buy it in a size that fits comfortably off the rack.
I love the extra long sleeves and the thick ribbed cuffs and hem. The neck usually lays nicely, but I put on my necklace without fixing it in this picture, which is why it looks doofy.
I love this necklace, and it makes such a pretty statement, but the chain twists the second you put it on. I had to fix it for every one of these pictures, so if that’s something that bothers you, I wanted to let you know. Otherwise it’s a gorgeous piece for a great price.
I also carried this black bucket bag that I love and adore. It’s definitely my bag that’s getting the most use lately. I’m hoping it goes on sale on Black Friday… I’ll keep you posted!
This is totally my kind of outfit. I love the mix of patterns and textures, and it’s comfortable and casual but a little bit edgy. While I know I look better in bolder colors, I think these light neutrals are so pretty this time of year.
Unfortunately most of our colorful fall leaves are now on the ground. We took these pictures before the snowstorm, which pretty much took them all down. We had a really short fall this year, so I’m glad we at least got a few good pictures while it lasted!
