A Pop of Cognac

I see this faux leather jacket so often on Pinterest and Instagram that I think it’s safe to say it’s attained cult favorite status. I bought it a few years back so Nordie’s doesn’t currently have it available in this color, but they still offer it in black. It’s arguably even cuter in black! I’ve also seen it in blush in the past and wish I had snapped it up while I had the chance!

I love that it fits closely to the body – boxy does not work on me – and that it’s lightweight, but doesn’t look super cheap. The zippers and shape give it a sexy edge and it can be worn with a variety of outfits. I rarely pay full price for anything, but this gem might just be worth it.

Cognac is such a classy color, this jacket was a great way to add a little color to this all black look I wore recently. The weather has been vacillating between “May grey” to sunny so it’s nice to have a lightweight jacket for when the marine layer rolls in.

I haven’t worn it enough to know personally, but I’ve heard from some other bloggers that it gets even softer with time. That’s quite a feat for a faux leather jacket!

My Jeffrey Campbell shoes are an ooollllld purchase and I haven’t seen any look-a-likes in a while, but I did find some similar options in a few heel heights (low, higher, and highest). I love the idea of a “shootie,” as I always feel more stable in a heel that straps me in. The platform makes these heels comfy enough to walk around in all day long!

I’ve searched for years for a basic black camisole that checks all my boxes (not too tight in the bust, not too low that it’s hard to find an appropriate strapless bra, not too long). This one did so I wanted to share it with y’all.

I can already tell it’s going to be a staple in my coset. I can’t wait to wear it under a sweater with a deep v and with distressed jeans and my suede oxblood moto jacket (FYI the suede jacket is still available in M and it’s on sale!).

I definitely prefer cognac to most other brown tones. What about you – what’s your favorite neutral?

Thanks for visiting, see you soon!
