fancy jacket, fancy shoes

In case the title of this post didn't give it away, this outfit made me feel fancy. I bought this jacket back in May, even though it was too hot to wear it at the time, and I knew that I wouldn't be able to wear it until fall. (Tell me I'm not the only one who buys things out of season?) Well, fall came early, so I put on my fancy jacket, some black pants, and my new fancy shoes. 

I had seen these heels at Kohl's a few weeks ago, but was not willing to spend $60 on them. Then Kohl's just had to send me a $10 off $25 coupon in the mail, and put the shoes on super sale the same week. Take an additional 15% off that total, throw in some unused store credit, and I walked away with these heels for $4.78. Ironically enough, I felt like a million bucks today.

  1. I like this fancy outfit! And you are not the only one that buys things out of season, I do it to take advantage of clearance items but sometimes it backfires on me (like when I put on some weight).

  4. Plus a fancy background! It kind of threw me because I'm used to the nature background you normally have! But anyway, you look like a rockstar in this outfit. I can't believe those shoes were less than $5!

  12. I buy things out of season all the time--it's definitely a great way to save money! I really love this whole outfit, particularly the structured jacket (which fits you perfectly!). Great deal on those shoes too.

  13. I love your fancy outfit! Although now I have that Iggy song in my head. Haha. I really think I should buy things out of season more frequently because I know they are better deals. I'm just too excited for the next season to want to buy something for the season that's ending.

  15. Um, you definitely look like a million bucks! The heels are so awesome - I love hearing about when people are willing to wait and get the things they want at a good price. And I buy things out of season a lot! I have gotten some amazing deals buying sweaters in May - but then it does kind of suck to have to wait 6 months to wear them :)
