This suede jacket is one of my favorite things to wear in the fall. I absolutely love suede. There's something just so comforting about it. Unlike the harshness of regular leather, suede is relaxed, soft and was made for fall weather.

My family used to have a Palomino. There's something about wearing this light colored suede that reminds me of Palominos- the gold coat, white hair. Surely it feels like snuggling up to one. Occasionally, you'll catch a glimpse of one on Yellowstone.

I have another jacket similar to this one in cognac, which is another color I love for fall. Back in 2001, I owned a pair of bootcut cognac cords from J.Crew which I loved. I wore them weekly on rotation at one of my first jobs out of college. The job was miserable but I think it had a purpose in my life. One, I learned how to problem solve. Two, it expanded my technical skills. Three, to never settle on a job I didn't love.

I truly love what I do now. I've gotten to be a wife and mother. I've gotten to raise my kids the way I wanted them raised. And now, on the daily, I get to use my creativity and the other skills I've acquired in my past life to make things beautiful.

And while I don't get to live out on these beautiful country pastures, I do have horses across the street. So that will have to be my Palomino...for now.

Here's to expanding on what things you've learned to create new avenues for your future!
