Leather on Denim

October 2nd, 2013


The first winter I spent in Texas, I didn’t put on a real winter coat the entire time.  There were a few days that were pretty uncomfortable (honestly, at some points it was just me being stubborn and trying to prove I could get through winter without one) but for a girl who grew up in the Northeast and braved some freezing, freezing winters, I was in heaven. 

Since then, I’ve relaxed my no-coat policy, and nowadays, I get a little excited to break out my wool overcoats the few times a year that they’re necessary.  But I’ve also developed a great store of light jackets — the kinds of jackets you can wear indoors or out, whether it’s to brave a chilly day or just some chilly air conditioning.  (Which we have a lot of in Texas…)

And this one, which I picked up for New York Fashion Week, is the perfect new addition.  I went back and forth a few times before buying it (I texted pictures from the store to my sister and a friend) and now I can’t imagine my closet without it.  I love the mix of leather and denim — leather accents are all over this season, from dresses to separates to coats, so I’m always looking for great new pieces to pick up!

Aritzia jacket, Zara skirt, Six Twenty tank top, gifted Halston Heritage clutch, Jimmy Choo heels.

    Coats and jackets are my favourite clothing items to buy! Here in the UK, it is pretty cold and miserable a lot of the time though so they are essential! 🙂 Lovely jacket, really like the contrasting leather with the denim! x

    I LOVE that jacket! I saw a similar one by Rag & Bone at Marshalls the other day but I didn’t feel like splurging for it, ha ha
