What do I reach for when the weather is cool and breezy? A scarf, jacket and jeans keep me just warm enough. In this post I’m wearing a black leather biker jacket with a ruffled leopard print scarf, bright blue denim shirt and black jeans. They’re all new to my blog and my body, but not my wardrobe.
Fall shopping seems to start earlier every year. This July one of my favorite shopping emporiums, Nordstrom, hosted a pre-fall sale event that would have been fabulous had it not been 100 degrees outside. At the time I hadn’t gotten my fill of summer fun and really wasn’t ready for fall fashion at all, but it occurred to me that this wasn’t a very practical approach to shopping. Often by the time the weather has cooled off the fall clothes are all gone, replaced by Christmas gifts and holiday dresses. It seemed silly not to take advantage of the many coupons and sales events of the pre-fall shopping season to add some practical, cold weather basics to my wardrobe. So I did. Here are three items I found this summer. They’ve waited patiently in my closet for the weather to cool off. Now it has, and I’ve been living in them.
I love the way a scarf, jacket and jeans look together. I like it so much that I created a Pinterest board to explore the many ways this simple clothing combination can be worn. It can be very minimal, or completely wild depending upon the prints and shapes chosen by the wearer.

Did you buy any great fall clothes in the summer sales? What do you think of wearing a scarf, jacket and jeans? Chic or boring?
