My blush leather moto jacket arrived yesterday…and it was black! They had sent the wrong jacket. I phoned my local store and luckily the blush jacket had finally arrived in store so I was able to go and exchange it for the correct colour. The SA had me try on the size I had ordered and when I did, she asked if I would be willing to try on one size up. She felt this particular jacket looked fabulous a little looser. I did and she was right. This size also zips up quite comfortably and I've decided I prefer that. The jacket is a little heavier than I had thought and so will work great as an outdoor jacket as well, in which case I'm glad I can do it up.
I've the paired the jacket with a simple ensemble of my black slouchy trousers and my black/white silky graphic tee. I chose my large cream handbag to pull out the white ballerina on the tee and am debuting my new black sandal shoes. This is the same brand as my bone/silver sandal shoes I bought last year and have determined are the best footwear choices I have ever made. You'll be seeing a lot of these.
Pink lipstick and black/white specs finish off the outfit.
P.S. The sleeves on the leather jacket need shortening but I don't want to lose three weeks of wearing weather so am just folding over and scrunching for now. Once it's too hot to wear the jacket, I'll send it in to have the sleeves shortened.
So what do you think? Does this work? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
Jacket & handbag: Danier Leather
Tee: Smart Set
P.P.S. I hate the way my wall colour makes the blush look!
