This is one of my favorite fall jackets – I love the rich brown color and the collar detail is so cute. I have a pretty extensive collection of jackets but this is definitely a favorite. Do you have a favorite jacket?

jacket: ModCloth / brooch: etsy / boots: Aldo

I was also recently tagged by the lovely Honeysuckelle to reveal what’s on my Christmas wish list this year, so here we go!

George Bernard’s new monograph

This microhistory of an English Catholic gentry family

David Cressy’s book on seditious speech

A Cambridge Satchel to be my new conference bag

A set of these plates that I’m obsessed with

The Asos portfolio envelope clutch

A new bottle of Angel perfume (my favorite scent and I’m running low)
A YSL Arty ring (yeah, I know this probably isn’t happening)

Beautiful jacket.

I'm envious of your collection: while I've always admired (women's) jackets, I've never bought one because I wouldn't be able to wear it (outside). Some, like this one, are especially stylish.

Honeysuckelle said...

I love the list and I love the shape of the jacket. I love reading about Anne Boleyn, she was a fascinating woman. This is such a beautiful satchel, I love nautical designs, and I have to check out this perfume! What does it smell like?

If you get that YSL ring for Christmas feel free to let me borrow it sometime.

I also love that clutch you are asking for. I am really loving that color lately.

I love how you have been wearing brooches lately. I really need to add a few to my jewelry collection.

That is a pretty rad jacket. The neckline is beautiful. I've been thinking about my wishlist, too, and oh em gee, I want that ring. But yep, that's going under my "dream on" wishlist.

I really love the cut and colour of this jacket on you. I have an extensive collection as well but my favourite is my pink wool Gap jacket!

I've gotta try that perfume! Enter to win 5 shirts from StyleMint!

Ashleigh said...

That jacket IS pretty swell.

Love that Asos clutch. And maybe if you're reeeeeally good Santa will bring you that ring :)

Alexa said...

I love that jacket too. Looks so cozy and warm!

StyleIDnet said...

Looks very cozy. I love the color, you can wear with almost anything.
Me? I have a Moschino bomber jacket that bought .... 11 years ago and I can't get enough of it. I have wore it so much that it lost thickness :) but I love it.


Rebecca said...

That is a really cute jacket, and I like the clutch on your wishlist.

Kristin said...

It's a great coat and I love your little brooch!

Closet Fashionista said...

Mmm I'd love the arty and satchel :)
and I love that coat! I only have 2 that I wear so they're both favorites ;) Fur leopard + purple peacoat

Marie a la Mode said...

Love the jacket! And your bag. That Asos envelope clutch is on my wish list ; )

The book Dangerous Talk looks really interesting. I think you should recommend books more often on your blog. Brains and beauty :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

That jacket is fabulous. I can easily see why it's your favorite. One of my favorite coats is a cream and gold bow jacket that is reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn. I'd wear it every day this winter if it were warm enough. Lol.

I also love that Angel perfume bottle. :) I hope you get everything you wish for this Christmas, Courtney. xoxo

Emma said...

I want an arty ring too : (

Bad Joan said...

That is a fantastic jacket! It looks great on you!


Collette Osuna said...

Brown and black is an awesome color combo.....I new a few more jackets to be able to pick a fav, lol.

LOVING your Christmas wish list! Awesome choices :)

I swear to all that is good that YSL makes the coolest jewelry. I don't own any but if I were rich I sure as heck would.

I love that jacket too. I have a few jackets I like, I am too fickle to like just one!


Linda Hamouie said...

Cool outfit!! Love the bag!! Xoxo

Dale said...

Pratishtha Durga said...

LOL. That's quite a wish list.

Love this jacket and the brooch. I have a cotton, summer jacket that I have had for years, and love it a lot.

Noémie said...

Great wishlist! I love the clutch and the ring!
Join my giveaway!

LyddieGal said...

ahhhh great wishlist.
The satchel is great, practically essential!
The anchor plates are right up my alley, and the cobalt clutch would practically go with everything.
