3 Ways: Styling a Faux Sherling Leather Jacket

styleKat Crowley

Hi Hunnies

So I’ve dipped my toes into some video action and I’m SO excited about it. Styling videos on IG have been very popular lately and I’ve been thinking about making my own for awhile but didn’t have the courage to go for it until my little sister, Juj told me to. I really love how the video turned out so I will definitely turn this into a series of some sort and keep it going!

I had just gotten this Amazon faux shearling jacket in the mail and knew I had to feature it on my blog. I found it through on Instagram. If you like shopping on Amazon and don’t follow her already, you need to. She shops exclusively on Amazon for clothes and posts them on her blog/ her amazon page. She really puts in WORK. So here are the things I like about this jacket: It’s super thick and warm, it’s very chic, it looks like it costs wayyyyy more than $60. Here are my downfalls: the belt loops are not sewn on well. A few have popped off (not a huge deal to me, as they are easy to sew back on). It took a little over two weeks to arrive, which isn’t terrible for shipping from China. It smelled literally AWFUL when I took it out of the bag, which really worried me. But, after one day the smell was gone. Thank goodness. Overall, I’m really happy with this coat! It’s extremely affordable for what it is and any other style I’ve found that is similar to this is at least $200.

Look 1

I saw this sweater dress at Target and had to have it. 1. I love stripes 2. I love midi dersses 3. This is my go-to color palette. I do get a little self conscious in this silhouette as my stomach is NOT flat, so I knew I was going to layer something over. You can easily throw a chunky pullover cardigan overtop, I opted for this fanny pack that is so flippin’ cute. It covered up my food baby nicely so props. I popped my new favorite Amazon jacket on top I paired with my favorite white booties to finish this look. If you want to dress down, throw on some white sneakers! I would wear this on a date or out to dinner with my girlfriends.

Look 2

This animal print dress was another piece I saw in the Who What Wear section at Target and had to have. Target is seriously killing them game. It has adorable tie detailing at the neck, is very on trend in print, and is completely opaque. For under $35 it’s seriously a steal. I paired with some polka dot tights, old Zara booties, and my favorite triangular sunglasses from Shein. Adding the shearling coat on top was the final touch to bring a little edge back to the flirty look. I would def wear this on date night or to a party (like I go to those lol).

Look 3

My last look is one that is seriously a GO-TO. When in doubt. Put on your Levi’s, a turtleneck, and some boots and you look put together and effortless. I promise. I added the fanny pack in the vid as a cross body but honestly if I was wearing this look out I would go with a hand bag. The Amazon jacket completed the look and will keep you plenty warm this winter!

Hi hunnies! 

I wanted to pop on here real quick and tell you about my current favorite pair of denim. I had seen the Levis 501 Skinnies on Instagram on various bloggers but didn't take the plunge to purchase them until I read Kathleen Barnes' (of Carrie Bradshaw Lied) post on them. You can read that HERE. She's one of my favorite bloggers. 

These jeans are on the pricier side for me ($98.00) but I've literally worn them at every single chance possible over the last month. They have a very sturdy denim feel to them, with no stretch. They are high waisted but not super high if that makes sense. One thing I found about these jeans is the waist fits a little bit looser than other high waisted jeans I've purchased. When I was trying them on in store the sales associate told me that was normal for this style to not fit super tight through the waist but to be pretty snug in the butt. The fit through the knees and ankles is looser to give you that classic "mom jean" vintage feel.  

I'm wearing a size 25 in these but according to the size chart my waist is a 25 and my booty is a 26. You can tell they are pretty tight on my gluteus maximus but I don't really mind.  Would 10/10 recommend trying these out! Outfit details below :)
