Today I'm styling this burgundy/plum & black plaid skirt two different ways and I'm loving both looks. This black top, plaid pencil skirt, and utility jacket are recent finds from White House Black Market Outlet. My mother-in-law and I took a shopping trip a few weeks back to the Philadelphia Premier Outlets and found some amazing sales at WHBM! I wish they had an online store so I could link each piece for you, but they do not. If you have an outlet near you and want one or ALL of these items, HURRY there! You can also shop similar options below.
I fell in love with this dressy utility jacket the moment I saw it. The color is so unique; I'm not even sure what to call it! It's sort of a bright plum shade. I styled the plaid skirt with this jacket and open toe booties for a more laid back, yet chic look. I found two similar jackets online at J.Crew Factory and Rue21 that I really like, too!
I also adore this second look...the tights, wedge booties, and long silver necklace make for a more classy, dressed up outfit (and more appropriate for winter). I switched out the crossbody bag for a silver/gray clutch (similar at Target), This outfit is dark colored alone, so adding silver jewelry and a shiny, metallic clutch makes the look "pop"!
Of all the fashion items above, I'd have to say that my favorite is the utility jacket. It's so versatile and will get plenty of wear this fall and next spring! I'm sure you'll see it on the blog again...
