One thing I love about fall is that I get to wear my favorite thing in the world – light weight jackets. Ok, perhaps they’re not my favorite thing in the world (food would be on top), but still. I love jacket weather. There’s nothing like a cool fall day mixed with a blazer, or in this case, a leather jacket.
This has to be one of my favorite pieces of clothing. I had been eying this hunter green beauty for months as soon as it appeared on the L.L.Bean Signature website. I love dark green and motorcycle jackets, so this felt made for me. The $400 price tag, however, was not.
But – then! The luck fairy visited me one day last March. She brought with her a price reduction of more than half, plus a 30% off code, plus $100 in gift certificates. I wound up paying only $30 out of pocket. AMAZING.
I wore this outfit last Saturday for a trip down Congress Street to Block Party, an awesome arty street fair, followed by a trip to the drive in theatre. Note to self: don’t wear tight jeans to drive in movies. Everyone else appeared to be in sweatpants and looked way more comfortable than I was. But, hey, I liked my outfit, so whatevs.
