I never really thought I could pull off a moto-style jacket and to be honest, when I ordered this one, I still wasn’t sure. However, as soon as I pulled it out of the package, I was sold. First of all, the color was the most perfect shade of blush pink I had ever laid my eyes on. Not too pink, not too dusty, just incredibly refined and beautiful. Secondly, the craftsmanship of this jacket is amazing. It’s fully lined in cream-colored silky material, all the zippers work smoothly, and the hardware is a shiny silver that looks elevated (definitely not cheap.) I got a size 4. This jacket is classic yet feminine, and I styled it here with a white blouse, ripped denim, and Kate Spade shoes and bag.
A (maybe) funny side story about this bag – Juan and I were in Florida visiting family and we went to the outlets to poke around. I had been in the market for a dove grey bag, and a bag with a shorter chain strap, but not necessarily in the same bag. I saw this bag in the Kate Spade store, and was drawn to it immediately because of the gorgeous color, and the color of the hardware which is a very pale gold, so it would work with either gold or silver accents elsewhere in my outfit. I thought, well I’ll just walk around and think about it before buying it. We walked around for over an hour and I could not stop thinking about the bag so we went back to look again, and there was only one left! I knew then that the bag was meant to be mine, and I have worn it so much since.
Anyway, back to the jacket. I’ve worn it to work with black jeans and this same blouse, over a lightweight grey sweater when it’s been chilly, and thrown it over a black jersey dress for a dinner out, and loved styling it all these ways!
