Bring out ’em leather jackets
The weather has finally decided to opt for spring temperatures and less rain so of course, my very first to-do was to get out my leather jacket. Not that I would ever burry it too deep in any storage because basically, I wear it all year round, but in cold cold winter, I definitely prefer a down coat… Anyways, it’s back now and I’m so glad it is that time of year again. I bet every one of you has that one leather jacket (no matter if real leather or vegan) that you love to bits and have worn it A LOT throughout the years. They are such versatile pieces and I pair them with everything and anything. So if you don’t have one yet or your favorite piece starts falling apart, get a new one quick, so you can life in it the next couple of months and if you are lucky enough for a hot summer, get it back out in October!
What I truly love about my leather jacket is that it is not fully leather but partly wool at the ends. I think it’s a cool twist to it. Also, the zipper is diagonal which makes it drape really pretty when I don’t close it and makes me look slimmer when I do. And it has well-sized pockets, and leather straps on the zippers… Did I mention the uber-buttery leather? Oh, and not to forget: the collar which is insanely convenient in cooler weather to keep me warm. So, if you’re thinking about buying a leather jacket, I highly recommend splurging because this piece will be your best friend for years and years and we all love a trusted friend who’s around to stay, right? If you’re looking for a more seasonal item in light pink or baby blue or any pastel-spring color: definitely opt for a more moderate price point because we never know if the cute pastel pink du jour is going to be labeled Miss Piggy pink next season…
Well, I don’t feel like there is a whole lot more to say, at least nothing insanely significant enough for me to keep you guys from having a look at the pictures. It’s the perfect Saturday/Sunday stroll outfit on chilly spring days. Enjoy and have fun!
