Fall Transition: Burgundy Moto Jacket + Shorts

Even though I'm clearly a Blair I'm apparently channeling my inner Jenny Humphrey (without all of the raccoon makeup and ultra drama, haha)!

I've been searching for a burgundy/maroon moto jacket forever and was elated when I found this stunning one at Forever 21 for under $25! Woah! The color is so unbelievably stunning, and I can already tell that it is going to be a closet staple for me all through fall and into winter.

I wanted to really play up the color of the jacket, and let it be the center of attention for this look. Therefore, I went with black and white for the rest of the ensemble. 

Since it's still pretty warm out I decided to rock shorts with this look, and with heels it makes my legs look incredibly long. I also wanted to add some pattern with this really flowy striped top. I tucked just a little bit of the top into my shorts to draw more attention to how high waisted the shorts are.

I ended the look with some simple suede black booties. Once it gets cooler, I can totally see me wearing this look, but with black skinny jeans and knee high boots. Bring it on, fall!
