Weekly Roundup

Happy Friday, you guys! This week has been a long one. On Tuesday, I swore it was Thursday. And on Thursday, Lincoln woke up sick. As a mom of young kiddos, you always know sickness is coming in the fall, but it never gets easier to deal with missing work, juggling child care, and still trying to make sure they are getting what they need to heal. Being a mom is hard-so moms of little kids, I am throwing an extra cheers out to you all this weekend as a reminder that we are not alone on those tough days! Onto prettier things, below is a weekly roundup of what I shared here on the blog and over on my Instagram. The leaves have just about peeked, and I am trying to capture all the pretty fall photos that we can!

On Instagram

Henley Sweater

There was so much love for this henley sweater this week! I will be straightforward in saying it itches a bit-I know that is an automatic NO GO for some people, so I like to mention it right away 😉 It isn’t overwhelming, but there is a touch of wool. Otherwise, it is so cute! The buttons are oversized and functional, and the red color is so perfect for fall.

This pretty white sweater was so loved by you all this week. For reference, I am wearing a size large tall, and it fits very well. Get your true size in this one! I have been wearing my Spanx faux leather leggings with so many outfits lately, I love how they are so comfy but still can be dressed up. Keep your eyes peeled-I may have a Spanx post coming soon!

Another share over on Instagram late last week was this pretty poncho sweater! I snagged it on sale for just $17, and it is so nice for the price. Incredibly soft and the prettiest colors, it just screams fall. There are no arm holes, and it is cut to naturally fall over your arms but is truly more of a scarf. I layered it over a white sweater with duck boots. It did snow last weekend, after all (and already melted, thank goodness!)

If I could suggest one trend item that you should buy this fall, it is a good moto jacket. They can be worn so many ways, are warm, and I love the little bit of edge they add to an outfit. The one I am wearing below is a tall fit, and I linked a few others that also come in tall! If you don’t need the extra length, I have a ton of options below at various price points. I have tried most of them on in stores, and the one from Old Navy, ASOS, and Target are my favorites!

This sweater was a part of my Amazon finds post, and is a great fall sweater. It runs true to size, but if you want it extra slouchy, go up one. I have been loving neutral colors with a pop of black, and this one is a statement piece for sure. Also, I feel like I need to shout it from the rooftops that my black studded booties are still in stock in SO MANY SIZES, and are around $25 when you use the on site promo code!

Recent Amazon Finds

Did you catch my recent Amazon finds post earlier this week? These posts are always so popular-people love love them some Amazon! The most loved item by far was this henley top. It runs true to size, I got a large and it was roomy and long. The sleeves work well if you are tall, too! You can grab it in multiple colors, but there is something I just love about a good white shirt!

Last Week’s Roundup

Last week we lost Mike’s grandpa, and even though I had a post drafted, I just couldn’t find the time to commit to getting it live. But I had already put in the work so I decided to post it on Monday. You can see all of my favorites from last week, including my spooky console table!

I hope you all have the best weekend. Can you believe we are already halfway through October!? Only two more weekends until Halloween!

Roundup Of The Best Faux Leather Moto Jackets

Alright you guys, after searching high and low for the past year, I think I have my recommendations on black faux leather moto jackets narrowed down. Before you think I am a crazy person, No I do not actually own all of these. However, as a ‘tall’ fashion blogger, one of my goals is to provide realistic reviews of products. The hope is that by sharing these with you, it takes the guess work out so you don’t have to order and try a ton of styles to see what fits! Below are some total hits, not so impressive options, and various price points. All details on sizing, fit, and quality are included below. Happy shopping!

Draped Moto Jacket

Alright, this is the first image, but I am going to be brutally honest and say that I was less than impressed with this jacket from the NSale. I wanted to love it, because the style overall is very cute. Which explains why I took photos in it 😉 I intended to keep it, but the longer I wore it, the less I loved it. The fabric is SO thin on this one. I have a hard time considering it a jacket, because the faux leather is about as thick as a t-shirt. The hems of the sleeves are also pretty raw, and I don’t think it would take much to damage this one. The price was decent during the NSale, but I wouldn’t recommend paying full price for this one, unless you intend to wear it as more of a blazer option.

Collarless Jacket

This was my other purchase from the NSale, and I really did like the quality of it. It is advertised as ‘collarless’, but it does still fold over, there is just nothing along the neckline that does. The fit was good and I loved that the underarms had a sweater material to allow more breathability and flexing. For being the same price range and brand as the jacket above, the quality of this one far surpassed! I would have kept this one, until I realized that the options below (keep reading) came in specific tall options!

The Runner Up

This isn’t the jacket I ultimately ended up with, but I would 100% suggest this faux leather moto jacket to anyone looking for a faux leather moto jacket. While it is $60 full priced, you can snag it for 40% off all of the time, making it right around $35. It comes in regular, petite, and tall sizing, and is the least cropped option of all of the jackets I am sharing. I really have no complaints about this jacket, especially for the price. And I love that there is an option for ALL sizes!

The Winner

Alright, to the winner! I fell in love with this jacket the second I put it on. It is from ASOS Tall collection, but the same style comes in regular as well. In comparing it to the one from Old Navy, they truly are VERY similar. This one is also right around 60% full price, and with coupons/sales can be snagged for right around $50.Right now code LABORDAY20 will get you 20% off! It is slightly more cropped, but fits like a glove and is incredibly flattering. I was able to identify a little bit of a difference in the quality of the faux leather between the two, and ultimately this one just looks and feels a bit more high end. Had I not found this one, I would have stuck with the Old Navy one! I would say between the two, it boils down to price. I thought this one was worth an extra $15, but if you are on a budget, either option is great!

Other Options

I realize that there are MUCH more than four faux leather moto jackets out there, but these four are popular styles from popular retailers that I was eager to try. I found a lot of other options that are also affordable (like this one from Target!) and am linking them all below so you can shop all of the options! If you have any questions or need further recommendations, please let me know and I am happy to answer!
