Happy Tuesday folks, hope everyone is surviving the Mercury Retrograde situation…I was wondering why my life was falling down around my ankles like a worn out stocking. On the brighter side, here’s a look I plan on putting on repeat this fall; cant go wrong with a light sweater, boyfriend denim and a leather jacket thrown over the shoulders. Layering season has arrived!
I picked up this vintage leather jacket a little while ago at my local Kind Exchange. It was kind of an impulse purchase and when I got it home I wasn’t entirely convinced I’d be keeping it. But as it turns out, due to the fantastic construction and the way the old leather is worn in, I love the look of it thrown over the shoulders (also the gorgeous wine colour lining!). I’m working on embracing a variety of outerwear thrown over the shoulders rather than worn. Certainly not a new look in streetwear or style blogging, but in terms of integrating the idea into real life (from subway cars, to errands to cocktail hour) its a very fun sartorial challenge – more to come, I’ll let you know how it goes.
