As a style influencer, it’s important to showcase looks for the upcoming seasons before they actually turn, and unfortunately, a lot of times that requires being improperly dressed for the current weather conditions. This past weekend was a prime example of that as I shot a few Spring looks in the below freezing temperatures. What can I say, anything for the love of fashion…right? Anyway, this cropped biker jacket debuted Fall 2016, and actually ended up being one of my Christmas presents last year. From the moment I tried it on in the store, I knew I had to style it for my blog and showcase it’s beauty. It came in couple different colors, and even more now that we are moving into warmer months, but there was something about the grey that drew me in and completely inspired my vision. Aside from the color, the soft suede-like texture is absolutely a dream and an unexpectedly pleasant surprise that receives an overwhelming amount of compliments whenever I wear this item. I didn’t exactly know right away how I wanted to style this piece, but I knew it had to be good, so I waited a few months and FINALLY found the key pieces I needed pull it all together. For about the last six months, I’ve been loving the combination of navy and grey, and it seems that this pairing will continue to make a statement in my wardrobe throughout 2017. While on one of my recent shopping trips, I found this gorgeous satin midi skirt and knew the contrast in textures as well as structure would make for a chic and eye-catching ensemble. At this point, I was still a bit unsure of the top I wanted to wear, but finally decided on a throwback graphic Guess logo tank. Aside from being a super cool homage to the 90’s, I thought this was the perfect piece to add a casual flair to the look and break up the dressier pieces. To finish it all off, I grabbed my black pumps with silver ankle cuff hardware, to compliment my outerwear, and a leather choker for fun. There were so many statement pieces with this look, I didn’t even bother grabbing a bag. I absolutely loved how it turned out and am even more excited for warm weather and fewer layers. Until next time!
