After one outfit, I was smitten with them.
I wore them with a neutral cardigan (similar HERE), leopard scarf (similar for all under $20 HERE), and nude patent flats (HERE).
You can see the full post HERE.
You girls also voted that I do a recreation of this next outfit.
It is total biker chic (which I am not), but I loved it!
And hey, I liked the idea of trying to pull off this new look!

My colors are all off, but I followed the basic outfit formula.
Skinny Cargo Pants + “Leather” jacket + Big Scarf + Booties
The look was a little more “edgy” than I normally wear, but I loved it!
This fall I added a pair of skinny cargo pants and grey jeans to my closet. And I’m getting so much wear out of both of them. You know me, I’m a regular ol’ jeans girl, but I really love the versatility these 2 new pairs of pants are bringing me! Plus, they are both super comfy (both more comfy than my regular jeans actually)!
a) HERE (2 sizes remaining)
b) HERE (fully stocked and only $49!)
c) HERE (Rag and Bone and almost 50% off!)
Leather Jacket Options
My vegan leather jacket from Piperlime is sold out, but there are lots of great options out there for you girls! I’ve only worn mine out of the house once so far (because the weather just isn’t cooperating), but I have no doubt it’s going to be a fall staple for me!
Check out this BLANKNYC faux leather jacket with AMAZING reviews
and UNDER $100!
I love the structure of it.
And a collage o’ options for you!
Which one catches your eye first?
All at different price points and all super cute!
Sam Edelman vegan moto jacket HERE ($169)
*Kut from the Kloth distressed leather HERE (40% OFF now $58.80)*
I think that one might be my favorite, especially for the price of $58.80!
Ryder Moto jacket HERE ($139)
Guess quilted faux leather jacket HERE ($118)
Old Navy faux leather HERE ($49.94)
Hive and Honey vegan leather HERE ($129)
Tahari knit and leather jacket 50% OFF HERE ($188.98)
I am also LOVING this jacket HERE.
I previewed it on Monday evening on facebook, so make sure you are following me HERE to get previews!
HOW CUTE IS THIS JACKET?!?
And it’s ON SALE for ONLY $40.80!!!!!
And after I found the above jacket, I put together this little collage, because I couldn’t believe that you could add so much style to your closet with a jacket AND a pair of booties for UNDER $100!!!!
Click HERE for the booties!
BLACK WEDGE BOOTIE OPTIONS
The ones I’m wearing in the above collage are from Target. I think they are plenty comfy (I love mine!), but I did get some e-mails from you girls disagreeing. Apparently if your foot isn’t narrow (which mine is), then the Target booties might not be for you.
You can always try the black TOMS booties HERE. And if you’re not married to the color black, check out THESE herringbone TOMS. Because I adore them.
If you are interested in other options, here you go:
a) Sperry bootie HERE/ b) dv wedge bootie HERE (sold out in black now, sorry!)
c) Born wedge bootie HERE / d) dv suede with laces HERE
I named the red popcorn scarf I have in my above outfit a MUST HAVE SCARF a couple of weeks ago. And it is.
I’ve received so many e-mails from y’all saying that after you received yours, you bought SEVERAL more for Christmas presents. (A couple of you also bought all 3 colors for yourself. I dig it.)
It’s wonderfully soft and cozy, the perfect size, and it styles itself.
WIN. WIN. WIN.
Click for the scarf.
(If interested in other items below: the cardigan is old from GAP, you can find a similar one in plain grey with the same waterfall shape HERE with all 4 and 5 star reviews!!!, elle earrings c/o Kendra Scott HERE, jeans HERE (loving my first designer jeans so much and they are still on sale!), nude patent flats HERE
Here are 2 more scarf options for you!
What about THIS scarf in the picture below?
So many beautiful colors and still so cozy.
I also like THIS one that’s new to Nordstrom.
And just in case you didn’t click over to see the waterfall cardigan option I gave you above,
HERE it is! I know several of you were disappointed that my striped waterfall cardigan was several years old (and I get that, because it’s awesome), but this plain grey one is the exact same shape.

I’m so proud to be her friend.
I know lots of companies do a great job of raising awareness for breast cancer in October, but I think it’s great to hear a personal message from somebody JUST LIKE US to really encourage us to do what we need to do for early detection!
Two of the companies that stand out to me this year for raising awareness are Tieks and Accessory Concierge.
You saw me highlight the FIGHT LIKE A GIRL BRACELET (HERE) and the HERE COMES A FIGHTER BRACELET (HERE) from Accessory Concierge.
20% of the proceeds from the above two bracelets go to breastcancerfund.org.
(And my Cushion cut bracelet is HERE.)
Tieks also rolled out a campaign where they created a ballerina pink flat to honor breast cancer survivors and promote awareness of early detection.
When breast cancer is detected early in the localized stage, the 5-year survival rate is over 95%. Self-exames are an easy and quick method that leads to early detection!
I’ve included a few facts about breast cancer to encourage everyone to get routine check-ups and mammograms!
-In the U.S., 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
-Every 19 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer.
-Every 15 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer in the U.S.
-When breast cancer is detected early in the localized stage, the 5 year survival rate is over 95%.
-It has been estimated that if every woman over the age of 50 had her yearly mammogram, breast cancer deaths in this age group would drop by 25% or more.
-Ways to increase your chance for early detection can be found HERE.

Mix and Match Mama says
I love your biker chic look! But more than that, I love Tracy and am always praying for her! She is such a sweet mama!!
If anybody told me yesterday that I was going to buy cargo pants and a "leather" jacket by 6:15 a.m., I would have believed them. Yet here I am. I already had the scarf after you talked about it a couple of weeks ago, so of course I had to buy the other 2 items. Looks like I want to be biker chic too. Thanks for dressing me! (Oh, I bought that Kut jacket. What a great deal!)
How cute is that biker chic look!! I really am thinking I need a black leather jacket also!! So fun!!
Natalie Zambreski says
I love this look! And I LOVE that jacket!
I love this look on you! You are tiny but the cargo pants make you look extra skinny 🙂
The cargo pants are MAGICAL! I shall never take them off! 🙂
Katie O'Brien says
How do the STS Cargo pants fit? I'm not sure what size would fit best.
Hi Katie! I'm not totally sure, but I think when I tried them on I wore the 5….and I'm typically a 4. Hope this helps!
Love the new colorful scarf. Love, as in must-click-over-to-Nordstrom-and-buy-it-now!! You are adorable in those skinny cargos and it inspired me to take a pair I bought last year and wore only twice and put them in the front of my closet, but you know what I am missing? Relaxed/loose fitting cargos. What happened to those? Not only are they super comfy, especially when PMS comes a-knocking, but when paired with a fitted top, they look neat, not sloppy…and a great alternative to jeans. Searched high and low and can't find a pair! While I have somewhat unwillingly joined the skinny jean/pants era, I know lots of gals who have dug their heels in and said no. Help!
