Can you have too much leopard in your closet? Maybe don’t answer that, unless it’s yes! I know I’ve mentioned over and over how I needed jeans… well this Rebecca Minkoff leopard moto jacket some how snuck it’s way into my dressing room. It was pulled out by Lauree my Nordstrom Stylist. I saw it and thought wow what a gorgeous jacket. Then I thought no, you don’t need another leopard jacket.
Then after trying on jeans I started to pet the soft fluffy leopard sleeve. Went back to trying on more jeans… looked at the jacket again. I mean it couldn’t hurt to try it on just for a sec right?? 15 minutes later I realized I had never taken it off and that I would simply die without it. I wondered what Brian would say so I sent him a mirror selfie and ask should I get this jacket? He just responds yes. The rest is history.
I’ll get to the jeans too…
This jacket is so soft and comfy, and the sides adjust in for a tapered fit which is another feature I love. Plus it looks cute open or zipped up. The only negative, and you can work around this, is it’s a little tricky to zip up with the fluffy fur. I’ve learned to zip it one handed while I hold back the fur with the other, it’s not that big of a deal and I’ll wear it open a lot. It runs true to size and for me it isn’t too tight in the shoulders or arms. I hate when I can’t move my arms in jackets, you can move around in this one.
The jeans!! These are from Mother and I adore them, this is my first experience with the brand and so far it’s a hit. These jeans make my legs look slimmer and my tummy look flatter. The frayed ankle hem and button fly is a cute touch too. I can’t speak for all Mother jeans but these run true to size and have a little stretch, they’re so comfortable. I did pick up these Paige jeans and this pair from DL I really like, and I’m sure you’ll see those eventually up on the blog. The DL jeans ran large on me so they’re the only ones I sized down in.
I paired the jeans and jacket with this Commando Ballet Bodysuit, it’s one size fits most. It’s very stretchy and soft, you could wear it as a top alone but I don’t, I usually wear it with layers. It’s a really good base piece. It especially works well with these high waisted jeans.
These earrings are from are a recent Nordstrom rewards party purchase too, and just $39! They come in gold, but I seem to be struggling lately finding silver earrings I like, I already have tons of gold. The gold ones were very pretty though.
Tomorrow is Halloween, the last day of the month and it will be the last official Europe 2018 travel post. I will refuse to let it drag out until November. When we were in Europe so long there was literally nothing else to blog about but I became worried about readers burning out. I’m not exclusively a travel blog, so I tried to start spacing things out once we came home. I’m trying really hard to have variety on the blog. I have a fun variety of stuff coming up, so much that my head is spinning! But fall is amazing in terms of fashion!
Have a Happy Halloween. Ashley and I are staying in to pass out candy dressing up as spa girls. We’re wearing our bathrobes with our hair in curlers with a face mask on. Haha…super silly but cheap and hey, at the end of the night we’ll have fabulous hair and skin. Haley has informed me she’s having a party in the backyard. So I’ll also be spying on teenagers all night. So fun.
