stylish fall jackets with boohoo

fall is in full swing in seattle - the leaves have changed colors and begun to fall,
pumpkin spice lattes are prominent in my 
favorite local coffee shops, 
and dressing in layers is key; it is relatively warm and sunny 
one day, with rain and cooler temperatures the next. 
i try to keep a rain jacket in my car and an extra sweater in my desk at work.
that way, i'm always prepared!

while practical (i wear my black rain coat more often than i'd like to admit),
rain jackets aren't always the most stylish.
this year, i wanted to find a khaki or army green bomber-style jacket.
i found this cute and very affordable bomber jacket on boohoo.com -
the hood is a great addition, as you never know when you'll need it.

with the changing of seasons, i always like to clean out and
organize my closet. it makes putting together outfits and 
getting dressed before work each morning (especially at 5:00AM) 
an easier task. getting rid of and donating items i no longer wear
always makes me feel productive. i like knowing that someone else can 
enjoy pieces i'm not wearing! i said goodbye to a denim jacket, floral 
raincoat, grey blazer, and other miscellaneous tops, pants and dresses. 
in return, i welcomed a cargo-style jacket, gifted by my aunt, 
maroon blazer, and this adorable bomber jacket to my fall wardrobe! 
not familiar with boohoo? they're an online global marketplace
with men's, women's and children's clothing, shoes and accessories. 
items are both trendy and affordable, with new pieces available daily
and a new collection online each week. additionally, boohoo is committed 
to helping others by supporting a variety of local and nationwide charity programs. 
over the next twelve months, boohoo will donate to 'teenage cancer trust,'
'ditch the label' and 'world vision.'

with a passion for social justice, i couldn't wait to collaborate 
with a brand that helps our community at large. 
and selecting a few pieces to style on my blog was easier than ever - 
i wanted so many things! 

jacket: c/o boohoo (exact here), dress: nordstrom rack (similar here). 
boots: c/o boohoo (exact here), choker: urban outfitters (exact here)
socks & purse: urban outfitters, rings: old navy

i decided to keep the rest of my outfit relatively simple and opted 
for a black dress, leather wrap choker, and black socks.
i love how the ankle boots and bomber jacket tie this look together.
as the weather continues to cool off, adding tights and a chambray 
top or flannel will provide warmth, while keeping this outfit stylish.

are you a fan of the bomber jacket trend? how do you style yours?
a special thank you to boohoo for sponsoring this post!
