Turning Heads Linkup- Plaid Long line Blazer


Morning friends!
Yesterday I shared with you an Anthropolige tartan blazer I styled for a Fall look with my flare jeans. Today, I am sharing this plaid longline blazer that can be worn as a coat or blazer, depending on the weather. I found this beauty on ASOS and was excited to finally wear it with my AG skinny jeans and rich brown suede booties.

I’ve been sharing some plaid and tartan patterns on the blog as of late, as I have loved plaid for a while now. I remember favorite pieces from my closet in my 20s and now with my current closet.

Weekend Fun

OK. Don’t hate me. I am almost done with Christmas shopping, as I have the time and I am in charge of gifts! Hubby has only his dad and brother in law to take care of. Our guest room looks like “Santa’s workshop”. Anyhow, we went to look @Home, a place that is like a Christmas wonderland with decor! I bought some items I will share on the blog later, and then we found a little family-run Italian restaurant near the store. I loved it from the start, hearing Ole Blue Eyes singing, and reading over the menu of mouth-watering homemade pasta and Italian wines.Β  It was a wonderful night, as we love “exploring our own town” and finding such treasures. Mama Italiana hugged me on the way out too.

Hubby wanted to see Ford Vs Ferarri, and I was reluctant at first. I am Not a Nascar gal or into racing. I did read reviews and the movie was rated well along with positive reviews. The theatre was sold out and we were lucky to get a seat. I was giving it a chance, it did, after all, have Christian Bale in it, and with an English accent too. ( oh! handsome and an accent!) The movie really was excellent and made me feel for the characters played by Matt Damon and Bale. I was quite thrilled it wasn’t just a car/race movie, but it was thrilling as well as being character-driven. ( pun intended) I’ll say no more, in case you want to see it!

My Outfit

Someone said, “Be careful about what you wish for!” It was so cold when we took these photos; that night would be 22 degrees! This is unheard of at this time in the Carolinas! I love Fall, not ready for Winter. It is supposed to get warmer, as I write this. I think you can tell how cold I am by the photos! A darker blue hue is more the photographic atmosphere, so I need to add some warmth to the pictures when processing.

I bought this jacket for about $65 on ASOS a few months ago, and boy, it sold out fast. I bought the coat in Tall, as the store carried Tall, regular and petite styles, as well as Maternity clothes. I love that the sleeves of the coat are long enough on me! I am 5 foot 9, and wear an XS/S or 4, and often the sleeves don’t compensate for someone tall. I have other coats to prove that! πŸ™‚ This exact coat is out of stock, but I have linked other ones below that are similar. This is one I like, but it doesn’t have a double-breasted style and buttons. This checked coat is more like the one I am wearing.

I wanted to wear neutrals and warm tones so I took out my new soft brown turtleneck I bought online on H&M, and my new favorite Marc Fisher booties scored on Poshmark. I hope to do a post on my favorite jeans, and the ones I am wearing are just that. I bought several pairs of AG jeans on PoshmarkΒ  ( The Prima) and went with my standard size 27. They are so very soft, I can see why people love this brand! My Brahmin bag fit in nicely and oh my! to look at their bags I am like a kid in a candy store!

    This is such a great classic style. Truly timeless.

    That is interesting about that movie. Maybe I’ll throw my hubby a bone and watch it with him : ) Normally we don’t like the same kind of film.

    Very smart and versatile coat Jess. Beautifully styled – I love the bag! I have also done 50% of the Christmas shopping for my side of the family – I will drive down there next weekend. I would have got all the rest but the lists have not been forthcoming!

    Gorgeous coat! I love your cosy sweater and fabulous top handle bag too! I had no idea that Christian Bale is British until I saw a TV interview the other day. It seems most of the UK didn’t know either going on the media reaction! A couple of my colleagues did the camera work on the interview and posted a photo on Facebook with Christian and Matt…lucky devils!

    This is an elegant and stylish look on you. I love the polish Brahmin handbags give an outfit. (I have a couple, but rarely use them b/c they are a little too polished for me–ha!) . We saw Ford v Ferrari Friday (I wanted to go b/c I like Matt Damon.) Darling husband went along for the ride (no pun intended)–we both really loved it and would see it again!

    The blazer looks amazing on you! What a great look! Can’t believe it got so cold in the Carolinas! We’re used to it here in IL, but I didn’t realize it can get that cold there too!

    You have the perfect coat for our abnormally cold fall weather in the south!
    I am glad you have most of your Christmas shopping done. I have all my Christmas decorating done but haven’t even started on my Christmas shopping!
    I’m just trying to stay ahead of the season because Thanksgiving is so late this year!

    Jess, I need this jacket in my life! It is so beautiful and just screams fall! We actually have some mild weather the next two weeks which is great for me. I will be able to get some photos done without freezing to death. I haven’t started Christmas shopping yet! I am dreading it. Hahaha.

    Jess, you look gorgeous. Especially your hair!!! Beautiful! The coat is a real stunner too.
    By the way, I just had to mention…. Christian Bale is actually English lol. And he spent some of his childhood living here in Portugal. Sadly, I never met him though lol! He is an amazing actor though, isn’t he?

    Jess, you’ve created a very attractive Fall ensemble! The colors all go together really nicely. I like all of the different textures – the softness of your sweater, the fuzziness of the long blazer, the engraved purse. Very tasteful.
