Why: I’m finally starting to get back into the groove of things with this pretty spring weather rolling in. I did a big thrifting/shopping day last week and picked up this pretty pink 80s dress. I snipped out the shoulder pads and added a belt to make it feel a little more modern. The color looks like something J. Crew would carry, right?
I really like wearing my leather jacket on Saturday nights. I usually skip a purse and put my lipgloss, ID and phone safely zipped into the pockets and I’m ready to go. I usually think of leather clothing as strictly fall/winter items, but I think a jacket like this can really work into the spring. I’ll probably rotate in more short trenches in the upcoming weeks, so gotta wear it while I can!
PS. For those of you in Madison, WI - I’ll be speaking on a panel and then later at a meet and great organized by MODA through the University of Wisconsin. It’s open to the public - so if you’re in town - I’d love to meet you! More details on my facebook page!
