picked up this vintage leather jacket for $40!
Brown has always been one of my favorite colors and I’ve always said that brown is my black. This outfit is just an example of that and I got to wear one of my favorite leather jackets that I got from a street sale a few years ago for under $20. I got pretty lucky again when I spotted this other (last picture) leather jacket being sold at a street sale. I know one might think “why would you get something pretty similar?” but I couldn’t resist. The leather was so soft and distressed and it was a lot lighter than the one I had on. Plus, $40? I couldn’t say no.

    Great jackets! What great finds! And they fit you so perfectly! ๐Ÿ™‚ Not too tight and not too big… just right… Love those pants oh so much…the color is fab and the high waist and cut is ah-mazing. You look beautiful, per usual!


  • Michelle Chic

    love the color palette!

  • fshnonmymind

    I love how chocolatey brown that first jacket is and I completely agree, if you find a leather jacket for less than $100 these days, you should snatch it up. Prices have gotten insane the past few years.

    oh I've been looking for pants like that, I'd love to wear a red oxford with those pants!

  • Takane

    You are probably the only person "I know" that can pull off brown pants, and still look cool ๐Ÿ˜›

    i saw a similar pair of trousers in h&m this week, i wanted to pick up the black ones. maybe i'll head back in one of these days when it's on sale.

    i normally don't like this shade of brown, but it looks lovely with your colouring.
