A great faux leather jacket has been on my wish list for so long… in fact I don’t know how I’ve gone so long without one! It really is one of those closet staples that’s so versatile. Not only is it a great transitional piece to have as the weather begins to warm up, but it can so easily be dressed up or down too. As a mom of two littles, I also appreciate the fact that leather jackets are wipe clean, haha!
This particular one is gorgeous. The faux leather is so buttery soft and supple. You’d be hard pressed to know that it’s not the real deal.
I’d had my eye on it for quite some time but finally snapped it up when it went on sale recently. It also comes in a few other colors – like grey and blush pink – which I was definitely tempted by. But given that is really a bit of an investment piece, I decided that black would probably have most longevity. I plan on wearing this jacket for as long as I can get away with it 🙂
There are about a zillion different ways to style a leather jacket, but since it’s Spring, I chose to pair it with this sweet floral top (I like the contrast between the two) and my go-to skinny jeans.
This is a bit of different look than usual for me, but I’m enjoying the change. I used to wear jackets a lot more often when I was living in England, due to the unpredictable weather and also the fact that I would walk or get around on public transport rather than driving to most places. I’ve recently realized that I miss wearing them! This one also makes me secretly feel a little badass, haha 😉
