Casual Fall Look - Cargo Jacket











Cargo Jacket: H&M | T-shirt: Gap, similar | Jeans: Gap | Watch: JORD |
Lip Color: BITE | Booties: Forever 21

We don't actually have fall weather here yet in Orange County which I'm pretty upset about, but I know in a few weeks it will be in the 70's and all will be right in the world. So for now I'm still in my summer clothes, but I wish I was wearing warm layers and cute scarves! Now that it's October I'm completely invested in the fall season and want to break out all my sweaters, boots, and dark lip colors. October is my second favorite month of the year (is it weird to have favorite months?? someone get back to me on this) because I get to spend my time watching some of my favorite Halloween themed movies, trading off between apple cider and hot chocolate, and cuddling up with a nice blanket on the couch. 

If you read my Fall Must Haves a few weeks ago, you may remember seeing this olive green cargo jacket. I loved it so much online that I went out and bought it the same day I posted about it! It does run a little small in the arms, but otherwise it's true to size and is incredibly soft. It also comes in a denim fabric if that's something you're interested in. I think this jacket is something I've always pictured having in my fall wardrobe, but I never found a cargo/military jacket that I truly fell in love with until this one, and it's under $40! 

I wanted to make this an easy go-to outfit that I could throw on any day of the week, so I paired the jacket with a simple striped tee, jeans, and some faux suede booties. I'm almost at midterm season, (I have my first one tomorrow!) so I'm looking to bring as little stress to my life as possible, and that includes my wardrobe! I want to be able to quickly throw on a cute look that I can take from school to errands without fussing over something, so comfortable and casual is always the way to go! I think this is going to be my go to outfit for Fall with how simple it is to put together and mix and match different tanks and t-shirts to create multiple looks.

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday, and I'd love to hear your favorite recommendations for fall/Halloween themed movies in the comments! (nothing too scary, please!)

  1. It is definitely not weird to have favorite months! October is my favorite month of all :)
    I lived in Orange County for two+ years and not having legit fall weather was one of my least favorite things about it! I could deal with (and loved) not having the other seasons, but fall is just not to be missed. I love this jacket though! There will be cooler nights in your future where you can wear it out a bunch :)

  2. I actually don't have a jacket like this but need one! You're adorable! Halloween themed movie wise...I tend to go scary haha The Conjuring 2 was awesome! But if you haven't seen Zootopia yet, it is amazing and perfect for anytime of year!
