Striped Cargo

 Bernardo Cargo Jacket via Nordstrom (save, splurge) / H&M Striped Shirt (only $6!) / H&M Coated Skinny Jeans (on sale!) / Etienne Aigner Wedge Booties via Macy's (in green, save, save, splurge) / JustFab Satchel / Target Faux Leather Baseball Cap (cargo colors!)

Happy Hump Day! 

Do you ever coordinate your entire outfit off of one particular piece? That's what I did with my new(ish) cargo jacket - I love the mix of olive green with faux leather sleeves (that are buttery soft... you wouldn't know it was fake!). I didn't want to go too crazy with the styling so I made it easy breezy with a striped top, coated skinnies, and suede wedge booties for comfy walking through Old Town. I couldn't resist adding a little bit more of the faux leather so I threw on my Target baseball cap to top it off (pun intended).

Although I am normally a real leather all-the-way type of girl, you can't beat the cheaper price tag on most of the faux versions. As long as it's still soft-to-the-touch and more matte than glossy, you can still have a high quality piece on your hands.

What's your favorite faux leather trends currently?

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Linking up with... Style Sessions, Three-fer Thursday, Wednesday Style Connection, Favorite Fashion Friday,


  1. I almost purchased that utility jacket with the leather sleeves from F21, but I didn't like it on me as much as I like my other utility jacket from there. I'm loving faux leather skater skirts and leggings at the moment! :)
