omg, what am i going to wear today???

feel me?

it’s officially here.  yesterday, it started.  mark your calendar.  for the next six weeks, it will be impossible to find something to wear in the morning that won’t be cumbersome and annoying by mid-day.  freezing when we wake (and by freezing, i mean “less than 50 degrees,” obvi), hot by lunch time, then freezing again once the sun goes down.  the hardest fashion challenge to master.  ugh!

enter the suede jacket.

oh, snap!  gurl’s got an answer for er’thang!

a short suede jacket is the perfect weight to knock the chill off in the morning and evening without feeling like you busted out your winter coat.  thrown over your shoulders or removed for mid-day, you will totally rock mid-day like the rock star you were born to be.  trust me. this also might mean you need a new pair of jeans, but, hey — we don’t call this a blog for nothing!

below, i have hooked you up with some fantastic suede jacket options (many from mango which, BTDubs, has a real niche in the leather jacket market) along with some sartorial picts and a mood board to inspire.  good luck!

these picts are of fashionista pernille teisbaek, of look de pernille (if you aren’t following, you should), and her friend, alexandra carl, last week on the streets paris during fashion week – each sporting their favorite jean look.  it’s hard to pick a favorite.  but, i am really diggin’ the mustard colored suede jacket alexandra is sporting and her chic flares and cat-eye shades.

if you are totally feeling her, too, and want the look for less . . .
