The Suede Jacket 2 (more) ways + Hello Monday Linkup

This suede jacket has been getting a lot of wear lately- I love how well it dresses up or down, and it's the perfect weight for mild winter days.  

I wore this outfit to my company's work party.  People dress all different ways, some wear legit gowns and others stick to the usual IT dress code of t-shirt and jeans.  I like the excuse to dress up a little, plus I was really excited to wear these shoes.  I ended up wearing them over 14 hours that day, and they were surprisingly comfortable!  I'm not going to tell you my feet weren't tired at the end of the day (I stood 5 hours straight at the party, pretty sure my feet were going to be tired no matter what) but it was definitely not what one would expect after wearing nearly 4" heels all day long.  These beauties also come in a few more colors of velvet, and the same silhouette in a black and metallic leather.  I went with my usual size 8 and they were perfect.  

These shoes are perfect for the Christmas too!  They're available a handful of places that guarantee delivery before Christmas too!  Here you can get them 25% off AND get $5 expedited shipping- that's the best deal I can find on the interweb.   Alternatively, if your Nordstrom has them in stock, you may be able to buy online and pickup in store.  

This jacket works equally well for more casual looks too.  I opted to pair it with my new favorite flannel.  Why is it my favorite!?  I'm so glad you asked!  It covers your bum!  The length is perfect for leggings, which also means it layers really fun too.  Just this last week I paired it with a windowpane sweater and I loved the generous flannel hem peeking out the bottom.  

And then there's these booties I just can't get enough of!  They just came out in nude and I am trying SO hard to resist them.
