A great essential to any women's wardrobe (and mine) this fall and winter season, a green army jacket. I think we call it that because of the texture and color? Probs. It's the perfect addition to any look and definitely an investment piece. I found this one for only 20 bucks at Forever21! The quality of the jacket feels like it should be worth way more than that. If you are in the market for one of these babies i would definitely recommend this one. It is also perfect for a southern winter. It adds just the right amount of warmth for those "cold " days in Florida. I can imagine wearing this with many other looks. Perhaps a red dress and heels? Plaid button up and boots? I think so!

Now let's talk about these jeans, another essential. Perfect color. Perfect fit. And soooo comfy! I've been searching for my next pair of jeans and i was planning on spending a good chunk of money on them. I wanted a pair that would fit amazingly and would last for quite a few years. Being a curvy gal it is harder to find jeans that fit in all the right places. I stumbled into Old Navy with a coupon i had to use and i decided to try on a pair of their jeans (one of my fav curvy fashion bloggers rocks their jeans, so i thought i would give them a try being a curvy woman as well). I had in the future tried some on with no luck, when i slipped this pair on i thought, "no way these fit!". This was the pair. And for only 26 bucks! (after the coupon) While they may not last forever i'm ok with that. For now i'll strut my stuff on my new jeans! 

Happy Friday readers!
