Patterned in Plaid

No matter how much my personal style changes through the years, I'm fairly certain I will always be drawn to preppy looks.  Lately, I've been having fun mixing more tailored items with slightly edgier accents - it's my favorite way to add a modern twist to otherwise classic outfits.  This moto jacket is the ideal piece for doing just that - I love that the lapels are faux leather, but the rest is a stretchy knit...which makes it easier to push up the sleeves & is more comfortable for layering underneath.  This would be a great lightweight option for those of you who live in warmer climates and can't bear to wear a heavy leather or wool coat.  In addition to this jacket, Lily & Violet has tons of other fabulous new arrivals for fall + they are offering free shipping on all sweaters & outerwear now through 10/13!

What I'm wearing:
H&M blouse (similar), Gap sweater (similar here or here), BB Dakota Juliette Jacket c/o Lily & Violet
Audrey Brooke booties (similar here or here), Target clutch (similar here or here), 
Bracelets: Zara & Forever 21 (similar), Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche Plum Explosion, Nails:  Zoya Sailor

Lovely combo! I think when you are true to your self and your style, there's no need to really change, just add new and fun trendy stuff like that fab moto jacket!
