It’s that lovely time of year when you need a jacket, but full-blown parkas are too much.
Lightweight jackets to the rescue, like this plaid car coat.
Car coats are typically longer in length + roomier in fit; they have a definite menswear vibe. This coat from ASOS is lightweight, almost like a cardigan masquerading as a jacket. For a cooler fall morning, it was an easy choice to throw on over a standard v-neck t-shirt, gray skinnies, and a pair of monk strap flats.
I’ve been seeing monk strap shoes everywhere this fall. They’re a great combination of tough + classic. I wear them just as I do oxfords; they work with jeans (as pictured here), but also add an edge to a dress.

I’ve got a fun weekend ahead. My best friend is celebrating her birthday and we’re hitting the Wine Walk down in the River Market. Should be a super fun, slightly boozy time. 🙂 And my Kansas City Royals are going to the WORLD SERIES. You guys! Unbelievable time to be from KC.
