Outfit Post: Downtown Field Jacket

How did Friday get here so fast? Usually, that’s not something I’m complaining about but I feel like there’s too much left to do this week before I’m ready for next week to start.

It’s been crazy around our offices preparing for three big events we’re working on next week. It doesn’t help that they all fall on the same day. Next Thursday we’ll be running between the Idea Festival (doing a fun activation for a client), the Louisville International Film Festival Opening Night Event and an awards ceremony at the Muhammad Ali Center where Sports Illustrated is renaming its Sportsman of the Year award in his honor. Some very fun and cool stuff but enough to get your head spinning from all the details and moving parts. I love my job but sometimes the timing of things could be a little better!

Today I’m trying to wrap up as many details as possible before heading down to Puerto Rico for a friend from high school’s wedding. I hardly ever get to catch up with friends from home since everyone is spread out and we don’t make it home for the holidays as often, so I am really looking forward to it. But again, the timing is crazy so it will be whirlwind trip. I get down there tomorrow around noon and will be going straight to the hotel for a presto-chango before the wedding. I’m sure I’ll be snapping the whole thing – so follow me on Snapchat if you want to keep up with the antics.

I am a little bummed to miss this year’s Nulu Festival which is one of my favorite local festivals. I feel like whatever day they pick is usually one of the nicest day of the year, weather-wise, so I’m hoping that the rain holds off for everyone. I snapped these pictures in Nulu wearing one of my favorite, easy fall outfits. I’m obsessed with these jeans and now have them in three colors (yes, it’s a problem). Paired them with some old favorites – these boots, despite needing a good cleaning – are still my #1 all-time favorites and I may wear this t-shirt at least 2x a week. Topped off with this jacket and it all pulls together to avoid looking a little too haphazard.
I scored this jacket last year on sale and I suggest you do the same this year. It’s 25% off now and I wear mine throughout the fall. It fits perfectly layered with fall sweaters or flannels and is the first thing I grab when it’s just a little chilly out. A little bit of a splurge but one you won’t regret at the end of the season.
