Leather Leggings, Quilted Coat & Wedge Sneakers

This Saturday it was chilly but sunny, so I wore my favorite practical fall coat that I could get away with. It’s black, quilted, has a hood, hits mid-thigh and my favorite part are the thumb loops (very edgy!). I paired my coat with a whimsical DVF reversible black and red lip print scarf, pleather leggings, wedge sneakers, and big sunglasses. I have been crushing on leather pants / leggings for a few months now, and the insides of these ones are fleece! I love the ankle zipper detail, too. The sneakers- I have always liked wedge sneakers. They are very polarizing, people either love them or hate them! I had my eye on these Isabel Marant velcro “downtown” edgy sneakers. The neutral color pairs with nearly everything, and they are very comfortable.

This outfit must have been good luck, because on our walk to SoHo we saw ASAP Rocky!

Leather Jacket Weather

After a few unseasonably warm 70 degree days, NYC is back to being spring and chilly. Chaussures Adidas Yeezy 330 Boost This leather jacket is probably the nicest item of clothing I own (not including shoes!) I bought it last fall from Maje- one of my favorite designers of all time. Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 Acheter I was attracted to the motorcycle style, the gorgeous and unique shoulder stitching detail, and the soft lamb leather. However, it took two separate trips to the Bleecker Street store before I bit the bullet. Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Pas Cher I am so glad that I did, it is an investment piece and a closet staple, and I have already gotten so much wear from it. Leather jackets are functional, too- great for fall and spring transitional weather. They are also great for traveling and flying, and I always get complements on it when I wear it. I paired this jacket with a black scarf, tortoiseshell sunnies I bought off the street last weekend, my favorite metallic bucket bag (another favorite designer piece), white skinny jeans, and edgy Rebecca Minkoff calf hair wedge booties that I treated myself to for my 27th birthday. When I was in college, skinny jeans were just becoming super trendy. It’s fun to watch fashion shift, as skinny jeans are still trendy but now at a higher ankle length than a few years ago.
