October Style Series: Jackets/Vests


It's week three of the October Style Series with my fashionable friends at The Blended Blog, and this week we're sharing vests and jackets.

During fall and winter, I am always cold.  24/7, unless I'm working out, you'll find me shivering and cursing the weather.  So a vest or jacket is a must with every outfit.  Actually, my fall uniform is a sweater with a top layer, a scarf and boots.  I pretty much am the October Style Series, every day.

My favorite new trend is the bomber jacket, which has been wonderfully recycled from the 80's.  In high school I had a pink satin bomber that was my most treasured possession.  My mom was more about function over style, so when I first pointed it out at the mall, her response was a solid no.  But a few months later, I happily unwrapped it on my birthday. Wish I could find a picture. 



That jacket is long gone, but this one in a geometric print from Tart is a good substitute.  It's got a little stretch, and can be dressed up or down.  I paired it with a turquoise stone statement necklace to add a little color, and my trusty sweater/boots combo.

  2. I'm always cold this time of year, too! But I actually love the colder seasons. Being hot makes me grumpy. Haha. This is such a fun yet versatile bomber jacket to add to your collection of layers :)

  5. Oh, I like the geometric print of your jacket! I haven't seen one like this and really like how unique it is. I enjoyed reading about your pink bomber jacket and how it arrived. I bet you were so happy to open that gift. :)

  8. Some variation of the sweater/jeans/boots thing is my entire winter wardrobe! Although lately I'm more about leggings, but will they be warm enough?? Time will tell.

    1. Oh yah, I forgot about leggings. Those are in heavy rotation too. Have you tried the flannel lined ones? Totally warm.

    1. I wear my brown ones more often too, but I thought the black was better with the jacket.

  12. I agree with you, Ms October, I like layers and sweaters too. It feels so odd when the weather warms up to not layer up. With the menopause I have to be careful of my layers but for the last 3 years I have at least been able to keep my neck enclosed!

    1. I'm still waiting on the menopause - and then I'm sure some of the layers will come off!
