I’ve been dying to wear this suede jacket since I got it last month in preparation for fall, but Chicago has been in between 50° and 82° for the last couple of weeks. I was wishing for fall so hard, and well, Chicago must have been listening to me because we plummeted straight into winter. But hey, I’ve never been one to turn down a challenge.
So nonetheless, this weekend, I proudly put on this Alyssa Suede Jacket and paired it with this long sleeve Dolman Daze Mini Dress in Khaki, and not only was I looking chic and cute, but I was so warm. Challenge accepted—and conquered. The suede jacket also comes in Camel, and the mini dress comes in a variety of colors I love it so much! These pieces are both staples for me this fall and winter because they can be paired with virtually anything, and they were extremely warm. I wore this outfit to the grand opening of Trunk Club‘s newly renovated clubhouse (scroll down to see a cute picture of me and my man *insert heart eyes*). It was a chilly night, coming in at around 37° with wind chill. The suede coat was thick and heavy duty, and paired with this long sleeve dress, I felt warm all night, but I didn’t feel too hot while we were inside. You’ll definitely see me sporting this around the city more than once this season. If you love this look, you can get it for 15% off with the code “NATCITY.”
Now, let’s talk about these boots! I have always struggled to find boots that fit over my calves. For reference, my calf circumference is about 19 inches. But I have given a lot of brands a try when it comes to their “wide calf boots.” The ones I am wearing in this look are the Sirena Block Heel Boots in Taupe from Just Fab! I was skeptical at first because the boots aren’t made of a stretchy material, but I was able to get them over my calves, and as you can see, they are super cute. They are a little tight, though. So if your calf is wider than 19 inches, I would suggest a different boot.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 3X in the Alyssa Suede Jacket, which is one size larger than my usual size, and it fits well, but the sleeves are a little long. I sized up because I didn’t know if the jacket would be too tight. However, I think the jacket runs true to size! I am wearing a size @X in the Dolman Daze Mini Dress in Khaki, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly! I am wearing a size 9 wide and wide calf in the Sirena Block Heel Boots in Taupe, which is my usual size, and the boots fit perfectly.
