Fashion Friday (10/1/21)

Hey, October, HEEYYY!

I know I wax poetic about the changing seasons way too early and too much. I know this about myself, and if you’ve been reading awhile, you know it too.

But surely NOW y’all are ready to join me in this, right? I mean, it’s OCTOBER! I can almost imagine a cool evening with a fire and s’mores.

Almost, anyway. And since I’m over here believing the Word for it, you can trust that it’s going to happen soon.

So let’s talk about chic bonfire apparel, shall we? Last F/W we were introduced to the shirt jacket, AKA the shacket. Well, more accurately, I guess we were ‘reintroduced’. Lumberjacks have been wearing plaid flannel shirts since lumberjacking became a thing, I think. And I distinctly remember oversized plaid flannel shirts, platform slides, and black velvet chokers being a whole LOOK back in the day.

But here we are. Full circle.

SO. The shacket. I love that this look is paired with ankle boots, which are totally in my millennial wheelhouse. I can rock an ankle boot, y’all, and given the chance to do that with a warm, oversized shirt that I can pass off as fashionable? DONE and DONE.

I feel like the styling here is slightly more grown-up glam. The felt fedora is every mom’s second-day-hair dream, tbh, and I’d wear this for date night and snuggle my own self, I surely would.

Don’t tempt me with a good time.

Another styling that I’d consider more ‘grown up’; I like that it gives a cheeky ‘howdy do’ to the trend, but doesn’t need things like velvet chokers and space buns to make it work. Because let’s be real – this mama left those back in the 90s.

I’m living for this casual look from Fashion Jackson, although I’m drawing a firm line in the sand when it comes to those sweet little velcro tennies. My kid wears all the velcro in this house, y’all. That ain’t for me.

So what do you think? Are you going to rock the shacket this year?

Have a great weekend, friends!
