A pretty casual outfit worn this past weekend, with my hair thrown back and my glasses on! Casual in every aspect.
I know not everyone is into the athletic pant look, but I kind of dig it!
And as far as the handbag that I got, I’ll post pictures tomorrow! Some of you were right on with your guesses! 🙂

Zara Leather Jacket
H&M Pants & Tank

    Hi, Helena! You look great! I love checking your blog for two reasons, 1) your amazing style and 2) I desparately want to move to NYC! 🙂 Is that a new jacket?it's really exactly what I have been looking for (black, bomber, with cool details), but I didn't see it on Zara's site. Thanks!

    @Helena Thanks for the info on the jacket! I'm so picky about leather jackets, but I will find the perfect one eventually! 🙂

  • fshnonmymind

    I'm all for jazzing up a pair of sweatpants. I bought a pair from J Crew to wear with heels, but they got all saggy; so now they are wear around the house only pants.
    I love the shoes and leather jacket with it. Makes it very chic!!!

  • ellevictoire

    wow, i absolutely love this outfit! the shoes and the jacket are simply LOVE
