I think the weather heard my pleas. This week it's finally cooled down a bit, and you can feel an underlying chill to the air. So I'm taking what I can get, and getting on that layering game.

My style isn't very girly at all, so to downplay and balance out the lace peplum top, I chose a military inspired jacket. I'm always hesitant to purchase something when it first becomes a trend, because I don't want to waste money on something that will be out of fashion a year later. However, this style has consistently been around for the past few years, and really seems to have become a fashion staple. It's super easy to wear, and pretty much goes with everything. So if you don't have one of these jackets yet, I highly recommend investing in one you love.
