Happy Monday everyone!
It's finally been looking and feeling a lot more like spring around here, yay! Aside for a random summer day we had on Saturday, it was near 80! Hey, I ain't complaining, especially with the winter we experienced here in New York, bring on the warmer days! Anyway, it's been beautiful out with some chills, nothing a cute jacket can't help with. I've really been loving colored leather jackets this spring. I purchased two so far and if I come across another great deal, I will certainly be adding to my collection. Every woman should have a basic black leather jacket, it's certainly a wardrobe staple; but it's also great to mix in some fun and interesting seasonal pieces and this pastel blue faux leather is perfect for those chilly spring days. I've actually been wearing it a lot since I purchased it over a month ago and Eddie was shocked that I had yet to share it on the blog, well until now!
This overall pairing would look great on all the body shapes, with a minor tweak. I would pay attention to the style of jacket you're purchasing, which can of course effect the entire look. One thing my apple, inverted, and hourglass shaped ladies I know have experienced, is the bulge around the bust when the jacket is zipped up and there's a lot of pockets and a large collar around the bust, particularly if you are very busty and in any of those three body shape categories. This won't matter much if you don't tend to zip up your jackets, but rather leave them open for a more casual, laid back look. However, the larger collars and zipper details found on most motto styles can still cause the bust to appear larger, even when just resting on the bust, so you may just want to consider selecting a style that doesn't have as much detail, especially since the color is sure to be enough pop for your look ;)
I hope you enjoyed the post and come back soon! Thanks so much for stopping and please don't forget to stay beautiful, confident, and true to your beautiful self!
