I’ve been doing so good with not thinking about buying anything lately hence the lack of “On my mind lately” posts… Until now. I know this item of choice with spring right around the corner might seem like a strange one, but there’s a reason for that! Recently I’ve been loving/uncontrollably watching YouTube videos by Claire Marshall from HeyClaire and I’m seriously obsessed with her style – a little edgy, feminine, sexy, relax and cool all together. I love how everything she wears seem so comfortable and easy but still put together and shows a lot of personality.
I know my style is not as cool or edgy and I might never be able to pull off some of the outfits she wear especially with my work environment, but I still seriously love her style and think I might be able incorporate a few items into my wardrobe to add a little edge to it. And then comes the leather jackets!
It’s been a fashion stable for a lot of people and it’s an awesome piece to throw on to add some edge to your outfit, but I was never really into the whole cool girl street style leather jacket look because I think it’s a little too stiff for my style and has a little too much edge that I don’t think I can pull off. But after researching and seeing lots of bloggers wearing them and how they turn them into an item that works well with many different style, I started reconsidering giving them a chance. I’m still not sure if I can pull it off or if it’ll ever be a stable item of mine, but it’s definitely something I’m open to trying.
Below I’ve picked out a few that are in a more affordable price range for beginners like me to try out first before investing in a $500 + piece that might not work for you. Hope you enjoy!
