To Rock a Leather Jacket


     Ah fall, you beautifully chilly season. You make me smile every year, when I put on my leather motorcycle jacket for the first time. Life just doesn't get more stylish. A motorcycle jacket is the perfect layering piece. It goes with most things and adds a nice bit of edge to my floaty dresses or my classic white T and jeans. I'm not sure I could love a piece of outerwear more, other than a classic trench coat, but more on that in the future. Right now is the time for some leather and I couldn't be happier. Honestly, I'm considering getting Bailey one, but I realize she probably wouldn't be too comfy in it. Maybe in the future when she won't outgrow it in 3 months? For now, I'll stick to mine and own it, mom style.

     A few weekends ago, Bailey, her Aunt Kristen, Grandma Susan, and I all went to Rocheport, MO for a lunch at Abigail's and to take some pictures of the cute little town. I saw this as the perfect opportunity to get some mommy-daughter photos with Bailey. While we did get some good ones, Bailey's idea of fun that day was running up and down stairs multiple times and not really taking any pictures. Luckily her Aunt Kristen is awesome and got some great ones! For this outing, I decided to pair the jacket with my classic combo of the aforementioned white T and jeans. As a parent, I find the trick to wearing something edgy is to keep every other element in the outfit simple. Sometimes I might add a red lip to this look, but only if I'm going somewhere special. Keeping it easy with the nude suede flats makes this look seem much more laid back, which is perfect for daytime. For night, I'd switch the flats to a heel and like I said, add a red lip, and boom! Casual date night outfit!
