Signs Of Fall And Old Colors

Yesterday was another one of those chilly autumn days that required warm knits in order to make the inevitable transition to the colder season a little bit easier. Of course I didn’t surrender completely, as I still wore 1/2 sleeves and my summery lace shorts, but I didn’t regret feeling slightly cold. Also you might notice that my hair was half-braided for some of the pictures, but for an inexplicable odd reason I can’t seem to feel comfortable wearing my hair like that. It’s like not having long hair at all so I ended up releasing it. That’s something I’ll have to deal with, because I really want to experiment in the hairstyle field also. I love it when other bloggers play with their hair so effortlessly and always end up looking beautiful.

I Wish

Since this week was a little bit busy so far and I haven’t got the opportunity to take some actual outfit pictures, today I decided to share with you the six items that made it into my wishlist for the following month(s). It’s not a fancy list, but actually made out of items that I would use a lot during fall and winter and that have been on my mind for a while now.

I Am Who I Am

Reading too many fashion blogs and spending an awful amount of time on other related sites can sometimes be so overwhelming .The amount of inspiration I take in on daily bases it’s too large for my own good, as I constantly change my perspective and my view on what I would actually wear. Things used to be so simple a few years back when I hated dresses, skirts and heels ^_^

Purple Thoughts

Today reminded me again why I love fall so much: the sun was warm enough to wear a t-shirt, the city was filled with people enjoying the last bits of ice-cream, the music was playing at every terrace and everywhere I looked people seemed happy and relaxed! For short moments I felt like I was still enjoying the long gone holidays ♥ I hope the pictures captured some of the calmness that surrounded me on this wonderful Sunday ! It really doesn’t take much to be happy ^_^ I wish you all an amazing week !

Comfort On A Rainy Day

The title pretty much explains it all. It’s not the first time that the weather decides to play her little tricks on me, so I’m already used to planning an outfit for a sunny day and wake up the next morning with clouds, rain and wind instead. Today more than ever I searched for comfort and warmth in my outfit, and an old pair of jeans + a knitted sweater seemed like the proper way to confront the cold. I also think I discovered my new favorite coffee spot in town, it’s actually so close to home that we never really had the chance to try it out.

It’s not all that exciting to go out on this gloomy weather, but it’s absolutely perfect to get cozy and enjoy a lovely evening inside. Hot chocolate and movies it is ^_^. All after I’m done working of course … I’ll see you around ♥ Enjoy the rest of the day !

Comfort On A Rainy Day

Vannesa Hudgens – Bohemian Inspired Look

I’m still not sure how I feel about Vanessa Hudgens’s take on fashion, but what I do know, is that almost everytime I come across to an image showcasing her casual, off-duty style, I feel the need to save it, for later inspiration.

Leather Jacket – Mix & Match

Inspired by my newest wardrobe addition, that was actually one of the coolest presents my fiancee (<3) could have given me for Spring – a Zara leather jacket – I did the most predictable and expected thing I could have done. I immediately started thinking of all the ways I want to wear the jacket this season, and since the weather outside is still pretty chilly, I have just the right amount of time to get ready to rock it !

The downside of all this, is that with every outfit I imagine and recreate in my mind, I realize how many more items I would need for my closet to feel complete (it will never feel complete, but let me hold on to that), that’s why my wish list, is getting bigger by day. A girl can dream !!!

Now let the fun part begin :

Leather Jacket + Maxi Dress

I’m thinking of a sheer, delicate maxi dress (like the one below), in a neutral tone (a bold color or a nice print would also work), paired with some black leather ankle boots (for an edgier approach) or wedge sandals (if only the weather was so warm in Spring). I love the black leather fringed clutch, so that works pretty fine. I would style the look with sunglasses, a statement ring and a few bangles (silver & black, or colorful).

Leather Jacket + Skinny Jeans + Boots

Yes, please ! This is not only the comfortable way to go, but it also looks chic and edgy ! You know, hard on the outside … For this type of look, I would pair the jacket with a simple, oversized tank or T-shirt, skinny jeans – grey looks great, black would fit, red would make a statement – and black boots. A cool black shoulder bag or backpack and some silver jewelry would complete the look.

Leather Jacket + Lace Shorts

Now, this I’m not sure I could pull off. Yet ! But I’m loving the look! I bet that attitude owns half of it :). The leather jacket would work great mixed with a printed t-shirt ( preferably in black or grey), a pair of lace shorts (white, beige, ivory, you name it) and a pair of white converse (I’d go with that instead of black ). An oversized bag, minimal jewelry and subtle curls would perfect the look.

Leather Jacket + Cropped Pants

Well, this caught my eye while I was browsing through ASOS a few days back. For a reason, I’m not totally sure which reason yet, I find this look to be cool and slightly masculine. In order to make this outfit a hit, I would team the jacket with a buttoned shirt rather than a t-shirt, light colored cropped pants – I like the ones in the example too – whilst the chunky leather ankle boots would also be an interesting addition. Again, minimal jewelry would set the tone for an overall minimalistic look.

This post is already way too long, and I had like tens of other ideas waiting to be set free, but, I will have to keep them for another post now. For a post focusing on a more colorful and girly way to wear the black leather jacket … for sure, think florals, pleated skirts, short and fun dresses.

Please feel free to share your ideal ways of wearing the leather jacket this Spring ! I would enjoy it a lot ! XO
