Burgundy and camel, one of my favorite color combos for fall.  How cute is this crop faux suede jacket?  It’s the perfect little jacket to throw on when you’re in a rush and it instantly pulls everything together.  This is definitely one of my favorite outfits this year.  Comfortable yet chic and extremely versatile.

Believe it or not, it does get chilly in SoCal.  When it drops down to the 40’s and 50’s, people act like it’s freezing.  Sometimes I see people wearing down jackets!  I’m originally from Minnesota and when we had these temps, people rejoiced and wore shorts (lol).  I’ve lived in California so long that my blood has thinned and I literally freeze my butt off when it drops down in the 60’s.

This jacket is amazing!  When I saw it online, I instantly fell in love and didn’t hesitate for one second before adding it to my cart.  I love everything about it and would highly recommend.

Sizing runs on the smaller side which is great news for petite gals.  I’m wearing size XXS and everything fits nicely however the sleeves are long.  Since the material is faux suede, it shouldn’t be too difficult to take up.  The draped collar and cropped length is spot on.  It’s not as cropped on me as it is on the model however I actually think it’s the perfect length for someone my height (under 5′ tall).  So cute over dresses and looks great with jeans too.  It’s one of those jackets that I know will get a ton of wear.

The jacket is fully lined and guess what?  It’s machine washable!  I avoid dry cleaning as much as possible so anytime an item is machine washable, it’s a HUGE plus for me.

Why do I love jackets and coats so much?  I have no idea (lol).  I rounded up my favorite coats in case you’re in need of something to keep you warm.

Favorite Coats and Jackets

If you’re looking for a real suede jacket, I have both this morning suede moto jacket and this gray suede moto jacket – both run small and petite friendly.  This faux leather jacket I wore in this post is also one of my favorites.  You can see the entire coat selection HERE.
