Every year, Zara comes out with the most amazing blazers at pretty reasonable prices. This year was no exception, so I treated myself to this gorgeous blue tweed version with jeweled buttons. It’s perfect for dressing up or down and also has a matching skirt (which I’m kicking myself for not getting). Today I paired it with my beloved navy jumpsuit that’s been my trusty companion on numerous trips over the past year or two. It’s literally the perfect travel outfit since it’s as comfy as a pair of pajamas and rarely requires ironing.

About the Fit
The blazer fits true to size, and the sleeves were a perfect length on my 5’7″ frame. I probably could’ve gone down a size in the jumpsuit, but I wanted a drapier fit to maximize comfort while traveling. This is probably one of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe, and I’ve also worn it sneakers and a jean jacket for casual weekend outings. If it came in multiple colors, I’d stock up in a heartbeat.

It’s been ages since I’ve taken classes, but there’s just something about fall that makes me wanna embrace classic schoolgirl style. When I spotted this sweater at Zara, I fell in love instantly. And after poking around online, I just learned that it also comes in black! I can’t wait to style it up with different looks this fall. This time around, I paired it with a feminine and slightly preppy little black dress with contrasting collar. I think it’ll look equally fetching with jeans and a pair of sleek loafers for running errands over the weekend.

About the Fit:
This is your standard slightly oversized boyfriend-fit cardigan. I went with my regular size, and it fits just right. I love that it’s roomy enough to layer without being to boxy or bulky. While I do love the style of this dress (I also have it in burgundy), the fabric is a little thin and the top portion is a bit too roomy in the shoulders for my liking. It’s passable with a sweater or blazer layered on top, but could definitely stand some alterations in the arm hole area.

Suede Moto Jackets {Under $200}

Moto jackets have been having a moment for the past year, and I’ve embraced them wholeheartedly (as seen here and here). When going through my fall wardrobe, I decided it was high time for me to invest in a black suede version this season. Frugal by nature, I didn’t really want to spend more than $200 – and so my search began. I finally settled on this one, and I can’t wait to toss it on over everything from jeans and a simple tee to pretty little chiffon dresses.

About the  Fit:
In general, I prefer a sleek fitted look in moto jackets, but I specifically wanted the ability to layer this one with thicker sweaters as the temps get cooler. I ordered this jacket in large and extra-large and wound up keeping the smaller size as it provides ample room for layers without being too bulky. The leather isn’t the softest, but I’m happy with the quality given the under $200 price tag. I also tried a similar version from BlankNYC, which was a lot softer (but ran a size smaller). It was a tough choice but I went with this one because I preferred the gold hardware. I may get the sleeves tapered a bit and will do a before & after update if I do.
