As a professional shopper, aka fashion blogger, I am no longer a “grazer” at the mall. What I mean by that is that I try to shop with intention. Either I have a vision of an outfit I want to put together, or I am on the hunt for a specific style top to match with a particular style of bottoms that I already own. I failed epically when I came across this patterned jacket last week at H&M…oops!
Without a plan in sight, I had no idea how I would style this jacket at the time of purchase. Luckily, I did know that it was too good to pass up, or it would have haunted me in my outfit dreams! Anyway, when you live in a moderate climate like San Francisco, you can never own enough lightweight jackets. I rarely leave the house without something to wrap up in once the sun goes down. Being a rather low key weekend, I paired this jacket with flare jeans. Although I debated over winter white, or traditional blue, I stuck with a classic hue hoping to accentuate the jacket’s tribal print. To pull out the golden tones I accessorized with a mustard purse and gold jewelry.
Make it a goal to shop with intention in 2016. You’ll quickly find yourself spending less money on more pieces you truly love and/or need.

These jeans look FABULOUS on you, girl! I absolutely love that jacket too, perfect to brighten up a dark winter wardrobe! Have a wonderful week!
Thank you so much Haley! I love wide leg pants because I find that they instantly elongate your legs. You’re exactly right – I love brightening up a gloomy winter day with a pattern like this one. Thanks for stopping by.
The pattern of this top is so lovely! I like how you paired this look with that gorgeous hat!
Shell, I’m so glad you like the jacket. My assortment is getting pretty impressive but it’s ok because the temperature is so mild in San Francisco. You can never go wrong with a floppy hat! Happy Monday!
I love this look and the jacket! I never would have believed you didn’t already have a vision when purchasing that jacket, because the whole looking amazing!

I’m so glad you could not tell! I felt very “thrown together.” H&M sure knows how to make a cute structured jacket.
