Just trying to come up with some catchy titles for my blog posts, but it’s backfiring on me because I keep getting the real lyrics to the actual songs stuck in my head! So it’s no surprise that I love denim, but I almost love stripes and leather just as much. There is something about them all put together that makes for the perfect look (major heart eyes!). My very first blog post featured an almost identical look (you can read that HERE), but I thought it was time to bring the look back and throw in some stripes and Vans to make it better. I clearly have an obsession with Vans right now…
The leather moto jacket I’m currently wearing is the brand BlankNYC (this was the hot jacket last year), and their pieces can be purchased at Nordstrom. This exact one is no longer available, but they do have a very similar one that is! I have major issues finding a really good leather jacket, anyone else? This one for instance was on sale when I bought it last year for $60, so I had to purchase it. But, I got it more for looks than comfort, which is always the issue when I wear it. I seem to always be in between sizes in jackets so they are either a little too tight, or a little too big, and it’s not cool haha. So, I normally won’t spend too much on a leather jacket, or any jacket for that matter, and if you’re the same way, then I think you will like some of the affordable leather jackets that I rounded up for you guys at the end of this post.
I am so big on simple tees that I can pair with a staple piece like a jacket or cardigan. This striped one I bought from H&M, which is always a great go-to place for me to buy some cheap t-shirts. But, one of my absolute favorite tees is by the brand Lush that you can buy at Nordstrom. It is such great quality, plus they are super comfortable, not scratchy like some t-shirts can be! You can purchase them in a few different colors HERE.
The most comfortable jeans that I own are easily these black Free People ones. They are a bit of a splurge (under $100), but I would honestly recommend them to anyone! I’ve been seeing them in this olive-green color that I’m dying to get 🙂
Can we talk about how funny the above picture is for a second? My mom literally said, “Jump off the curb like you’re a ballerina!” Apparently this is my best “ballerina jump.” LOL. The outtakes of this jumping nonsense are the best!
