Back in Black

Leather Jacket

Back in Black!  Happy Monday!  I made it back to the U.S. after spending two weeks in Southeast Asia.  It was in the mid-nineties every day while we were there, so it was nice to come back to the crisp, cool air in DC.  Call me crazy, but I was pretty excited to throw on a pair of jeans yesterday.

This outfit is perfect for the transitioning weather we will be having over the next month or so!  This plaid button-up has been a go-to for me all winter as a layering piece.  It will be great for the spring too as a stand alone piece.  It’s still available at H&M and it’s under $25 – no brainer!  Along with the shirt, this jacket may be my favorite purchase of the season.  I’ve gotten so much wear out of it.  Recently, on a warmer day, I threw it on over a white sun dress and paired it with black booties – perfect for the spring temps that are sure to be right around the corner (fingers crossed)!  And lucky for you, it’s on sale!  For details on the fit of the jacket, see this post.  And if you have any questions about the fit/the jacket at all, please let me know!

Unfortunately these loafers are sold out  so I linked a few similar pairs that I’m loving below.

May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short!

Have a great one!

  1. Hey Ashlee!
    That jacket is such an amazing price! What size did you order? Wondering if it runs small. Fellow DC blogger here.

      Hi! Thanks so much! I have a size Medium. It definitely runs small! I ordered a size Small the first go around, and it was very tight across my shoulders and back. The Medium fits perfectly. Looks great over thin tee shirts as well as thicker sweaters! So I would size up.

      Let me know if you have any other questions. Also, their customer service was pretty great through the whole return process. They respond very quickly via email.

      I recognize your name from the brunch email! Hope to connect in person soon!

      All the best,
