Classic Fall Look – J.Jill Haley Textured Topper

October 22, 2017

Can you feel that crisp fall air?  We’re finally starting to feel it here in San Jose and I’m more than ready to start dressing for it!

J.Jill gave me this coat to review. All opinions are my own as always.


This J.Jill Haley Textured Topper (c/o) is such a classy and comfortable coat.  It feels like a cozy sweater, but it looks like a classic wool tweed.  It’s a perfect neutral shade for fall … a tan/caramel with black trim.  I just bet I’ll be reaching for this to wear to work on many cool mornings this season.


Fall/winter basics for me always include a classic black turtleneck, as well as some straight leg jeans. Seriously I think I’ve had these two basics in my wardrobe for my whole entire life!  What can’t you live without?


I added some elegant accessories like my new Cassia Jord Watch (read full review here) and my Alexa earrings from Kendra Scott Design Your Own.

My bronze metallic Donald Pliner loafers are last season, but check out this season’s metallic shade: Donald Pliner Metallic Loafers.

And of course two of my favorite accessories, my Illesteva Sunglassesand my Marc Jacobs Tote.

Style Tips

A long cardigan can be cozy and actually flattering too!  This look would work well with warm boots when the weather gets colder.  And this topper would look great over a little black dress or chic trousers. Because of the texture, I would wear with sleek simple pieces, without a lot of volume.

Does an outfit ever make you feel expensive?  This outfit made me feel that way.  I think the classic styling with  a few luxe details did the trick. What makes you feel expensive?

    This look works head to toe. Those metallic oxfords and your coatigan/topper are the best. I am all about long cardigans, duster sweaters and coatigans this season. Looking so chic dear Dawn Lucy.

    That cardigan/topper is amazing! Great for those days that is cool outside and the office for a pulled together look.
