Review Steals Under Wardrobe Essentials

Steal Under $30: Checkered Jacket

Checkered jacket C/O SheIn / UGG sneakers  / Chloe bag C/O Shopbop (only in nude) / similar distressed denim

I love a chic jacket that I can dress up or down so when I spotted this checkered jacket it was a no brainer.  It’s lightweight, with pockets and an open-front.  It’s simple and classic but still makes a bold statement with the black and white checkered pattern.  This is yet another steal under $30 from SheIn, I feel like they are knocking it out of the park lately.  This jacket is one of their pieces that bloggers love (when you click on the link above you’ll see how many bloggers styled it) and I can see why.

This jacket did not disappoint, I’m wearing a size small which fits well but if you are going to wear bulky sweaters underneath it’s best to go up a size. I have worn just about everywhere from work, the mall (as pictured here), church and it’s just too cute with everything.   I styled it with my new UGG sneakers, distressed denim and this cute bag (sorry it’s no longer available in black).  These sneakers are the best they are comfy and make every outfit look so on trend.  I liked how they gave some edge to this look with the dressier jacket and here are some more similar options.

I haven’t shared any of my recent music binges so wanted to leave you with a soundtrack I have been enjoying the last few weeks.  Who doesn’t love movies and to me the musical scores are often nothing short of magical. So I found this movie soundtrack compilation put together by someone on YouTube.  It’s relaxing but also moving and inspiring, hope you enjoy:

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

    Oh that jacket is lovely – a classic colour combo that will go with everything over winter, and such a bargain too! 🙂 While I have lots of printed kimonos I don’t have any printed winter coats in my collection, it’s a gap in my wardrobe.

    Hope you are having a great start to the week – less than two weeks until Christmas now! Luckily I finished buying all my presents yesterday. Hope your Christmas preparations are going well!

    I agree with you 100% on SheIn! I’ve been ordering several of my own items there on top of the partnership pieces. There’s just so much cute stuff. Case in point: this jacket! It’s such a fun statement piece (more interesting than a basic coat) and I love how you styled it with these sneakers!

    I haven’t seen Shein’s website in a while but I love that chic black+white checkered coat. Paired with the tall sneakers and crossbody, this outfit has a cool street-style vibe to it which I love Marta. Thank you for sharing that awesome music video, too.

    Welcome by Thursdays to link your fabulous style with me. I also think you’d like my last two style posts dressed up velvet for both me and my mini me lol. Happy Hump Day!!
