Leather, Plaid, & Hello Monday Linkup

I've wanted a leather jacket... forever.  I have a few faux leather jackets, but there's nothing quite like the real thing.  I've tried many a few on, and even bought and returned one, but I've just never been able to find the perfect one.  Then, earlier this season I saw a blogger wearing one I loved.  I immediately clicked the link and was pleasantly surprised when it was quite affordable!  However, I had never shopped at The Lookbook Store, and wasn't sure how sizing ran, and when I asked she never replied.  So, I continued my search.  

Genuine sheepskin blazer from Lookbook Store c/o // Plaid flannel tunic shirt from Lookbook Store c/o  // Striped turtleneck top [similar, options]  // Black high-waisted PU pants from Lookbook Store c/o  //  Hunter gloss boots in graphite [exact]  //  Milly by Michelle bucket bag c/o [exact, similar, options]  //  Nectar sunglasses c/o

A couple weeks later, much to my delight, that same company reached out to me about collaborating. I was still completely lusting after the jacket, so I immediately agreed.  When it arrived, I could not have been more satisfied.  The fit was perfect, and I have worn it countless times since already! 

I included sizing details on all my items from The Lookbook store below, because while my sizes did line up perfectly with their size chart, it definitely isn't standard US sizing :)

Outfit Details

Genuine sheepskin blazer from Lookbook Store c/o
I ordered size US 8 and it's perfect! I usually do a 4 in jackets
Plaid flannel tunic shirt from Lookbook Store c/o
I ordered size US 8 and it's a little oversized, but just how I wanted it. 
I usually do a 4 or small in tops
Striped turtleneck top [similar, options]
Black high-waisted PU pants from Lookbook Store c/o
I ordered size US 6 and they're a little big in the legs. I usually do a 4-6 in pants.  
They fit my hips, but not legs.  If you've got a straighter build I think they'd be perfect though!
Hunter gloss boots in graphite [exact]
Milly by Michelle bucket bag c/o [exact, similar, options]
Nectar sunglasses c/o
