Red + grey + black casual fall outfit

I did not originally plan to take photos of today’s outfit, an outfit I wore on the weekend out to an afternoon movie date with my husband. I wore leggings and the tunic for comfort, and I threw on this belt to help shape the waist as this tunic is quite voluminous. I then added this lightweight red cotton jacket as it was chilly and drizzly — and because I always get cold in movie theaters!

We ended up taking photos because as we were walking out of the movie, Sam said he thought I looked cute, and then I spied this interesting bit of red canopy railing outside the movie theater. And that was that. 😉

I don’t know if this belt has ever made it to the blog before, but I’ve had it for years. It originally came with a pair of capri shorts, which you have seen before here; I donated the shorts a few years ago, but I kept the belt. I quite like how the chunkiness of the belt and the studded details combine to give a little ’80s flair to this casual outfit.

I bought this red cotton jacket years ago, and it’s turned out to be quite a versatile VIP item in my wardrobe. It’s heavy enough to be a jacket in-between seasonal transitions, and light enough to layer. And I love the special details that elevate this basic piece, details like the curved yoke across the back, the elastic seam in the middle to provide more shape, the ruching in the collar, and the sleeves that can be pinned up.
