Fall Jackets: Five Bloggers, Five Ways

Sharing my favorite sweater blazer and labeling it as one of the must have fall jackets! Even though it’s a blazer, I’ve been wearing it as a jacket so therefore, I’m calling it a jacket haha.

Okay, this should come as no surprise at all, if you follow me via Instagram, I am obsessed with this sweater blazer. I truly cannot stop wearing it or talking about it. I would say I’m sorry but I’m really not haha. It’s just that good and I want y’all to know about it! If there’s one item I would suggest you adding to your fall wardrobe, it’s this sweater blazer. The item is incredibly versatile! I’ve worn it over dresses, with blouses + tops, a tee shirt + shorts, and overalls. Each time, the sweater blazer perfectly polished my look! Now, it is a little bit of an investment as it’s over $100 but I will truly say with the amount of times you’ll wear the item, it is absolutely worth it. If you lean more towards blacks and grays for fall/winter, this does also come in a heather coal aka a really dark grey. 

I wore this look during our stay at The Lodge at River Run for an afternoon of exploring and an evening at Artisanal. Although, for dinner, I switched out the rainboots for ballet flats. Also, the backpack for a simple satchel. The sweater blazer was a great layering piece for the cooler mountain temperatures and restaurant {why are they always so cold?}.

Since fall has officially arrived and jacket season is right around the corner {once fall decides to act like fall} I’ve teamed up with four other fashion bloggers to share fall jackets we’re loving! From the photo below, you can tell moto jackets are definitely in! As three out of five bloggers went that route. Although, they all chose different colors and fabrics. I always love seeing what other bloggers chose and how different everyone’s style is. Below, you’ll find the links to each of the gal’s sites, go check them out and show them some love! P.S. dream moto jacket right here
