Moody Style: Leather & Lace

You may recall that I bought this BlankNYC Faux Leather Jacket over the summer during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It’s by far one of my favorite pieces that I picked up.  If you don’t already own a leather jacket, then I would suggest adding this one to your wardrobe.  This jacket is so versatile because it can be worn all year long – in the fall/winter you can wear it with a pair of dark rinsed jeans or a cute fall floral dress and in the spring/summer you can wear it with white jeans or even some pretty pastels.  It also comes in two colors like this camel/brown that I'm wearing and black.  And the $98 price point isn’t bad either considering the faux leather looks like the real thing. As far as the fit is concerned, I think the jacket runs a little small.  I’m wearing a Medium over this lace tunic and I think it would fit fine over a thin sweater too.  Well, what do you think about adding this faux leather jacket to your fall wardrobe? Let me know what other ways you would style it in the comments. Happy Friday Friends!

Feeling Frumpy?

I just came back from a quick work trip to Miami and I definitely didn’t want to leave.  Especially since I had to work about 80% of my time there and the weather is getting cooler by the hour.  I was able to take out time some time to go for a run on the beach and eat dinner at some amazing restaurants.  I always enjoy my time in Miami because of the beach, the weather and all of the wonderful people watching that I get to do.  One of the things that I noticed every time I go to Miami is all of the fashionable locals.  You can definitely spot them out in the crowd versus the every day tourist.  On my last night in the city, I went out to dinner at Nobu, a Japanese cuisine restaurant, on Collins Avenue.  They had the most amazing sushi I’ve ever had in my life – but that’s a whole other story for another day. I just wore a pair of jeans and a polka dot short-sleeve sweater from Old Navy (as seen here) and a pair of black heels.  I was pretty happy with my ensemble until I got to the restaurant. While I waited for my food, I noticed that most of the women in the restaurant were wearing either a dress or leggings/skinny jeans and some type a slinky tank top. Each woman looked like they were ready for a night out at a trendy new nightclub on a Tuesday night.  Maybe, I’m showing my age, but I definitely felt frumpy that night.  Even though I packed a variety of clothes for my trip, I felt like I picked out the wrong outfit.  So the next day, I wore an outfit that I thought would have been perfect for my previous night out on the town.  Unfortunately, no one really saw my outfit since I was leaving.  Do any of you buy new clothing to adapt to the area that you are visiting when it comes to style/fashion? Or do you wear clothing that makes you comfortable?  Let me know in the comments.
