You guys…this faux leather jacket is sooo amazing! I’ve been looking for a quality affordable faux leather jacket for so long and last Friday I finally found it! Lately my work life has come to dominate everything (which is the opposite of what I’m trying to teach with this blog!) so a week ago Friday when the stars aligned and God gave me the combination of only one class that day and a 3-day weekend ahead, I took my husband’s advice and went to the mall for the first time in over a month! It was hard to block out the ever-present-to-do-list and casually walk through stores but it was SO needed. I was rewarded with this great find on my first stop!
This affordable faux leather jacket is such great quality and the fit on me is amazing. I’ve tried on leather jackets at Zara (more expensive) that I liked but didn’t have quite the right vibe and real ones at Wilson’s Leather, but this one takes the cake. Just to make sure, I went to all the other stores in the mall that might have a faux leather jacket and tried any and all other options on for size and quality. None could compare. The faux leather is soft and buttery and for $50, it’s such a steal. When I went to check out the clerk said he had sold 3 already that day so I knew I better grab it before it was gone!
I wanted to photograph it right away but I told myself to hold my horses. I’ve been dealing with a lot of anxiety lately because I’m not getting any down time. My blog is supposed to be a way for me to find balance but when you’re up until 12 or 1 AM trying to wrap up lesson plans and then getting up at 4:30 AM to blog, something just has to go. Last week I chose to relax and take a breather rather than use my 3-day-weekend to rush through a post and add to my stress. It was the right decision but I was really glad to find time this week to shoot this date night outfit with my new favorite jacket.
It’s important to make time for date nights and mall trips if it means giving yourself a breather. What do you do to take a breather? Let me know in the comments below!
