Pairing Two Suede Pieces in One Look

Jacket: Guess | Pants: Primark | Shoes: Puma (similar) | Sunglasses: MCM Worldwide (similar)

Fall means mixing texture in my sartorial book. Here I’ve paired two of my newest favorite pieces, a suede biker jacket and mint suede sneakers. While having a ‘statement piece’ element to them, the sneakers are subdued in the same respect. To me this outfit shows the versatility we can have while playing with muted pops of color, texture, and layering.

The Statement Bomber Taking All the Attention

Bomber: Guess | Pants: Primark | Sunglasses: Randolph | Watch: Tudor

It’s no secret that I’m totally on board with the bomber trend this fall. I have a solid black bomber, one with cobalt blue suede, and a handful of others, but… there wasn’t one standout pieces until I came across this pink Grease-like jacket. The stretch satin steals the show in this outfit, which is why I paired the piece with subtle accessories and black pants. Are you donning a statement bomber jacket this fall?

In Rittenhouse.

Last week as I walked through Rittenhouse, my new silk and wool Christa Louise scarf blew in the wind. Suni and I went to snap this outfit, but it was soooooo cold (she forgot her coat..). After getting these images we dashed to the nearest store to warm up and chat. Thankfully American Trench has a wool button-in warmer that I attached to my trench and the gray Ahnu shoes were comfortable during all that city walking and dashing!

Greenery in the City

Living in a city there are sometimes few places to appreciate greenery and other elements of nature. On a Saturday afternoon I stopped by an intersection. An intersection of industry and nature. Where a highway meets a park and there are hints of urban decay (if you consider graffiti a decaying component to urban society). Here my outfit reflects this urban society as well as nature. A blazer paired with colored jeans shows a level of formality without being too formal. Metallic accents on my sunglasses and Lobo Mau necklace hint at urban industry (steel). The ombre tee brings nature into the look by making waves in shades of blue. The folio is the current crashing away from the outfit and drawing eyes back. Much like ocean waves pulling people from the sand into the water. Nature confined within an urban setting.. much like this park bordered by highway.
