I can take ZERO credit for discovering this jacket. To be completely honest, Ashley found it (what feels like years ago) and I have been stealing her’s ever since. Thank goodness it went on sale and I was able to scoop it up ASAP!
You see, Ashley is the trendy one between us. She is always on the cutting edge of fashion, she always knows the latest lingo (even that word shows just how uncool I am), and she always has the latest app downloaded (and is using it frequently before I even know what it is). I think it’s what makes us such a good pair — we’re so different. Who would want a best friend with the same exact closet as theirs? Not me!
So while I’m discovering the latest and greatest cardigan, I can count on Ashley to discover the latest and greatest leather jacket. Which is exactly what happened here.
Ashley got her jacket – what seems like ages ago – and I wore hers to the Rebecca Minkoff event we hosted in the fall. That was when the love affair really began. I paired it then over a floral Joie maxi dress, and it looked perfect… but I love the fact that it looks just as chic paired with leather leggings and my favorite black long sleeve tee (as in these photos). FYI even though it is perfect for the weather right now, I fully intend on wearing mine ALL spring and summer over flowy dresses for an unexpected mix of – fast and feminine.
FYI – it is 35% off right now, and at just $59, it is an item every lady needs in their wardrobe.
Things I love about this jacket. Oh where do I begin…
- As I said before, it is perfect for all seasons.
- The zipper detailing gives it something extra. I like the fact that it feels a bit edgy.
- The shoulders are super structured, and the construction of the jacket is fantastic.
- It makes me feel like the cool mom. <<< I am sure William and David will cringe reading this one day.
Really… everyone needs a good leather jacket in their closet – and you can’t beat this price. Plus… all sizes are available, so get shopping!
