The Jacket I Wear Over And Over...

As I was getting ready for our date night last weekend I realized that I reach for the same jacket over and over again - the "Aleesa" ivory faux leather bomber jacket! Last winter I came so close to buying one - I was so drawn to the pure off-white color but decided to hold off. This year when Piper Street got these in I was super excited! I have to say that it runs slightly small. I am typically an XS in tops/jackets in most chain stores and I am wearing this in a Small which I typically wear at Piper Street. It's slightly tight in my arms so if you want to wear it with a sweater, size up. ;-)
Modeling is definitely not my gig but I wanted to show you my favorite ways to wear it...
1. I love the pink, ivory, and black color combo. I wanted to try our new black "Cooper" joggers and started looking for pink in my wardrobe (I'm usually all about the blues) when I remembered the "Amber" top. Seriously the most comfortable outfit and I loved the way it turned out with the black booties.
2. I'm not usually one to pair leather with leather but since the "Hailey" pants are black I decided to give it a try and that factor really broke up the look enough to keep it interesting. You should know that I'm also a big fan of monochromatic looks - I think it's an easy way to add sophistication without looking like you tried too hard. First I grabbed our new "Everly" scarf and "Liz" tunic. the pattern on pattern look is so fun. Well, then I thought...as cliche as it sounds, I have to try this leather with some lace. The "Kira" lace cardigan had just the right proportions to pair with the jacket and I loved the way the sleeves ruffled out of the jacket. The lace brought such a soft and romantic vibe to the look, and that is what I ended up wearing out. Confession: Can I just say that wearing sunglasses in a photoshoot just makes it go so quickly! My apologies for the serious demeanor but those sunglasses were a lifesaver! I had my hubby shoot these in the garage as we were headed out...I was watching to see if the neighbors saw me. haha
Grab this jacket and the rest of the pieces before they are gone and tag us on Instagram when you wear it! Don't forget about our Style Challenge this month - you and friend could each win a $150 Piper Street Gift Card - all the info is on IG!
P.S. Did you know that if you run your photo through IG's editor and turn up the Structure and the Sharpen features you will look like a sketch?! It may take a couple of rounds but seriously, try it! ;-)
