Fall 2011 is upon us. And while in most parts of the US, people are already wearing outerwear everyday, here in Texas, we’re being teased by the occasional cool breeze. One day it’s in the 60s, the next day it’s in the 80s. But come nightfall, we do need a light layer to keep us warm. Well, I’ve gathered some of our latest free/sponsored outerwear pieces to give you ideas if you’re in the market for jackets, cardigans or even blazers. Yes, I am adding my baby dog Louis and his year-old sweater. :)
Trixie & Peanut Sweater + Alexander McQueen Bow Tie
I just had to include Louis here. I mean, who can resist this cutie? Just look at his good boy face and you’re sure to give him what he wants. LOL! So anyway, while I was taking photos of my latest outerwear pieces, I thought I’d include him even if his sweater was still from last year. I added my McQueen bow tie to add an accessory to his look. Hahaha. Both pieces came in free via Gilt Groupe. You too can shop for free. Just join the membership shopping site for free and invite friends too. When your friends make their first purchase, you earn a $25 shopping credit!
Oh yes, I just have to add more photos of him! He is so adorable!
GUESS Leather Jacket
Sorry Hunny, but you’re making an appearance this time. Haha. He thought I was only taking photos of the jacket but well, his face is in it too. Uh-oh! Peace Hun! Anyway, this Guess men’s jacket is one of the pieces I got after winning the ELLE & GUESS Fan Favorite in their Global Chic Contest early this year! So yeah, this came in free too. :) Thanks to Guess & Elle!
Miss Sixty Studded Collar Motorcycle Jacket
I’ve shared this Miss Sixty jacket with you the other day in one of my Weekly Wear posts. I just can’t get enough of this jacket. I love the studded collar and the over-sized look. And yes, this one came free via Ideeli. Similar to Gilt Groupe, you can earn shopping credits when you refer friends and they make their first purchase!
GUESS Gray Cardigan
I really love the draping of this cardigan. It’s soft, lightweight, warm and perfect for layering. This will be perfect for those not so cold yet chilly nights! And what’s great about it is that you can dress it up or dress it down. Wear it with a dress, a suit, or even just a t-shirt and shorts like in the outfit I’m wearing. Again, this came in free from the prize I won from Guess & Elle’s Global Chic Contest!
GUESS Light Pink Cardigan
Sometimes, I can’t help but get the exact piece of clothing but in a different color! This is the same GUESS cardigan as the previous one in gray but I just had to get this because of its feminine, romantic and dainty color. Pardon the wrinkles because I haven’t really taken them out of their paper bags! After all, we had a very long summer here in TX. And yes, this one also came in from the prize I won from Guess & Elle.
No matter how many blazers I already have, I just had to have this. That ruched detail in the sleeves makes this one unique from all of my other blazers. I don’t need to fold, roll or pull up the sleeves because of that! And the size, cut and quality of this GUESS blazer is indeed superb. Besides, a black blazer is a MUST HAVE in anyone’s closet. It definitely gives you that powerful/authoritative look even if you’re just wearing a simple plain white tee underneath. It gives any outfit that classy look so you’ll never feel you’re under-dressed! You can pair it with a dress but you can also pair it with a t-shirt and jeans! Again, I got this from my prize a few months back. I did stock up on jackets to prepare for Fall. Again, many thanks to Guess & Elle!
