Printed Leather Jacket

While bohemian is rarely a word I would use to describe my style, I can't deny that I love the aestetic, in an I-want-to-live-inside-an-anthropologie kind of way.

When shopping in a brick and mortar store, I almost never buy black; my eyes skip right over it and are drawn to the prints. This leather jacket was one of those pieces, so unique, beckoning to my bohemian spirit, demanding to leave the store with me. I briefly considered how short leather jacket season is in Connecticut, compounded with the bold print, but if I bought only sensible things I would have significantly more room in my closet.

I tried it on, it zipped, and it was mine. Only after the fact whilst texting Megan (I'd spotted a pair of boots which seemed to have her name on them) did she altert me to the fact that the jacket had retailed for over $1,000, making the $52 I'd just paid completely worth it.

It's quite likely I won't be wearing this jacket again until sometime in the spring, so I'll have plenty of time to think of some other ways to style it.

  8. this is such a fun statement jacket!

  9. This is exactly the kind of jacket I would have known you would love it if I saw it in a store, even if it weren't already yours - and exactly the kind of jacket I would walk past without a second thought. That's the amazing thing about fashion; we can admire someone and their style while knowing it would never work for us personally. Also - I cannot believe what this jacket retailed for originally versus what you paid for it. Clearly it was meant to be yours for so many reasons!

  10. Don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this. Such a fun twist to a leather jacket! xoxo, Sarah

  11. I love that you found a jacket that really spoke to your style! It's always exciting to have pieces literally jump out at you while shopping (that's one of the things I miss about in-store browsing. It's a whole new experiences). Love the way you styled it!

  12. Such a cute jacket! I love the neutral colors and print. Very original and unique~!


  13. I've never seen a jacket like this before, it's so cute! I love the pattern! Xx.

  14. Wow that jacket is such a great jacket! A girl always needs one statement piece in her closet.

  15. The jacket is so gorgeous! You look perfect in neutrals.

  16. I don't know that I've ever seen a printed leather jacket and this one is absolutely gorgeous!
