This is definitely a go-to outfit for me. Simple and easy, but with a few fun details that make it special.
First, I went with the basics of a tee and jeans; however, I played with proportions because the top is a fitted ribbed material while the jeans are a looser fit mom jean. I love the combo of blue and black, so these pair perfectly together.
The shoes are another all-time favorite for me and I try to experiment with them by wearing them with a ton of different looks (you’ve probably seen these featured a few times if you watch my YouTube channel). They were the most painful shoes I had ever put on my feet. But, after two or three wears, and with the help of probably an entire box of band-aids, they are now one of my most comfortable pairs of shoes.
Finally, I saved the best for last. This suede motorcycle jacket. Can we just take a moment here?
Suede is one of those materials that scares the crap out of me. There are two sides to suede. There’s the gorgeous, soft, elegant material side we all know and love. And there’s the side that gets stained when you look at it wrong or it rains. This is the reason why I haven’t bought suede shoes in about 10 years. You are literally pounding the pavement watching your beautiful purchase turn grimey.
I have this fear with outerwear, but it’s not as bad as with shoes because you’re not literally wiping your suede outerwear pieces on the ground.
When I saw this in store, I lost it. This color in this high-quality suede felt like something I would never get my hands on. It had the perfect timeless silhouette and the perfect autumnal color, aptly named “Spice.” As soon as I saw it I thought of about ten outfits that I could pair this with (comment if you want a post or video on this!).
However, as you may know, suede isn’t the cheapest material since it’s in the leather family (sorry, vegan friends!). The price was a little steep so I held off and just browsed Nordstrom’s website until it went out of stock.
Long story short—not sure if it was really that short—Luke secretly purchased this jacket for me for our anniversary! I was so blown away. I have been treating it like a baby since the day I got it. (If you have any tips on applying suede protectant, please comment below. I need all the help I can get.)
It hasn’t been cold enough to wear this so I have just been brainstorming all kinds of different outfits. I’m excited to layer this with blouses in the fall and then of course with giant chunky sweaters in the colder months.
