LIGHT AS A LEATHER (JACKET)

Aviator Sunglasses (old, similar here) / Express Faux Leather Jacket (and one I’m coveting here!) / Boyfriend Denim Shorts (old, similar here) / Michael Stars Black and White Stripe Tee Shirt / Layering Rings / Lip Color / White Converse Shoes
Let’s face it; in the Summer, we often have to store our favorite Fall jackets away until it’s abrupt re-arrival in mid September. I know, it’s illogical (and downright uncomfortable ) to break out your thickest fur jacket or heavy duty trench coat, but who’s to say we can’t break some of them out a little early? I’m talking about those simple layering jackets hanging out in your closet waiting for a little loving. Those jackets are perfect for cloudy or unpredictable summer days! Yes, your light trench coats, favorite staple blazers, and one I can’t seem to be able to take off: the perfect (faux) leather jacket. This Express jacket (I call it my “LBJ”) in particular not only goes with everything, but also gets complements left and right. I have yet to find an outfit it doesn’t go with and a person who isn’t infatuated with it. In fact, I’m even looking into purchasing a another one for it’s quality and versatility. Quilting may play a minor role in that too, because, I mean, quilting – I just can’t get enough.

What jackets are you thinking of breaking out early? Any particular way you plan to style it? Let me know in the comments!

    Wow – great moto jacket! It looks wonderful with your striped top and white Chucks. I never thought about pairing mine with shorts – thanks for the idea. 🙂

    Love this look! I agree with you that leather jackets are super versatile and go with mostly everything. Yours looks great. Gotta break it in before Winter, right?
