Almost everything is under $100!
I was dying over this cobalt jacket in a previous post, so I bit the bullet and ordered it! In person, I've got mixed feelings. I am a huge genuine leather fan so I'm not sure about the faux leather. I don't think I would invest a couple hundred bucks on a blue genuine leather jacket though... so basically I'm stuck. When I find myself in these situations I ask questions like these: Will I wear this jacket more (or ever) instead of my current favorite leather jackets (black and cognac)? Out of all my jacket options to buy this fall, is this where I want to spend my budget? For my upcoming cold-weather trips, do I love this jacket enough for it to be the one thing I pack in a carry on? The jury is still out...

This tweed skirt is still going strong in my closet; it's the third fall/winter in a row that it's been one of my favorites! Neutrals that have a little extra something - like the marled color and the tweed texture of this skirt - really add some pizazz to an outfit. It's a great staple that's neutral enough to repeat often, while also being detailed enough to make it a star on it's own. It's the best of both worlds.
ps. If you're in the Wichita area, come check out the beauty/hair/style event I'm speaking at this Saturday at the Wichita Art Museum - it's open to the public!
