Donna Karan Peplum Jacket – Bloomingdales

27 September |


Every now and then I try to break out of my comfort zone and put outfits together that aren’t my everyday look. This is easy for me to do in the fall because I can add layers or coats or wear booties styled a way that might not normally be my first choice. Today on the blog, I’m partnering with Bloomingdales to share a statement piece – my black peplum jacket by Donna Karan that is perfect for spicing up your look this fall.

I’ve got a lot of traveling coming up this fall (I’ll be heading to NYC three more times) and I’ll want to look chic while still staying comfy for long travel days. The Donna Karan peplum jacket is the perfect jacket to wear over a long white tee, faux leather leggings and black booties for a put together, yet still wearable, travel look.

The jacket is lightweight and great for layering. I love the peplum hemline and think you could easily dress it up to wear to work over a blouse with pencil pants and heels. The polyester material is thin and very versatile. I would also suggest wearing it a little more casually with leggings and sneakers. It runs true to size, I’m wearing XS and like the fit. If you are between sizes or you want room to layer over thicker sweater, then size up one size!

Donna Karan has a few other pieces at Bloomingdales that I’ve had my eye one. I love the variety of her line and the quality is always amazing. I’m linking a few pieces that would be great for work below.


I’ve been very impressed with the Kendal and Kylie black booties! I wasn’t sure I would like them since black booties are wayyyyyy far out of my comfort zone (I’m a nude shoe girl all the way). But I do love the pointed toe and slimming look this pair gives your legs. They run true to size but if you want to wear thicker socks, try going up a half size. They are very comfy and will be perfect for my trip to NYC in November!


Lastly, if you haven’t purchased a pair of Spanx faux leather leggings, you NEED them ASAP! Bloomingdales carries them in maternity and I’m so excited to order them for the growing bump. I have always worn the same size in the Spanx faux leather leggings that I would wear in workout pants (small). They are tight and designed to keep everything in the right place so you could easily size up one size if you want a little extra room to breath. I did a purchase a size medium this year to wear with the bump but now that I know they have them in maternity, I’ll be going for that option ASAP!

Everything I shared today can be purchased at Bloomingdales. A huge thank you to them for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions are my own!
