HAPPY FRIDAY! I swear, I just wrote last Friday’s post.. this week flew by! I hope you’re all having a great day. I wore this look yesterday and I actually wasn’t planning on wearing my leather jacket, but it was so chilly that I kept it on all day! As I have said before, the fun part about fall and cooler weather is how creative you can become with layers. I originally just wanted to wear all black with simple jewelry so I could show off my favorite boots because, lets face it, these boots are knock-outs. I first saw them on my friend, Carly, back in 2011! I fell in love (I love everything Carly wears- she is a babe!) and when I went to look them up online, i found them on major sale. So I had to get them. Obviously…. :)  As for the rest of the look- I ended up throwing the jacket on for my commute and then this vest, which finally came in from backorder, and never took them off. A bummer about the vest: I really don’t love the way it fits- I find that it runs a bit large up top, so without many layers, it just makes me feel big and poofy :/ I’m thinking of selling it, but in these photos, I don’t think it is too bad- opinions?! I will have to try it out a few more ways and then come to a decision!

I hope you have a great holiday weekend (for those of us that have Monday off, yay! If you don’t… still have a happy weekend!!) Thank you so much for reading, and commenting- means a lot! :)


¡FELIZ VIERNES! Les juro que acabo de escribir la entrada del viernes pasado- esta semana pasó volando. Espero que estén teniendo lindos días! Llevé este look ayer y de hecho no iba a llevar ni mi chaqueta ni el chaleco pero hacía frío así que no me los quité todo el día. Pues, he dicho antes y sigo diciendo que la mejor parte del tiempo fresco y la creatividad que se encuentra en llevar capas. Originalmente tenía ganas de usar todo de negro y joya sencilla porque, sin duda, estas botas son geniales. Las vi por primera vez en mi amiga, Carly en el año 2011 y me enamoré a esa primera vista. (Esa chica lleva todo de moda- es una rorra!) Cuando las encontré, estaban de gran descuento así que tuve que comprarlas. Obviamente… :) Y para el resto del look- utilicé la chaqueta y el chaleco para mi camino al trabajo y nunca los quité, creando este look. Una lata sobre el chaleco: no me gusta como me queda- opino que es un poco grande sobre los hombros así que si no los combino con capas, aparece demasiado grande y ancho. Estoy contemplando la venta del chaleco. ¿Qué opinan? Lo voy a combinar con otras piezas de mi ropa para ver si cambio mi opinión. Si no, les aviso sobre la venta! 

Espero que tengan un feliz fin de semana festivo (para los de nosotros que no trabajan el lunes- yay! Y si trabajan el lunes.. pues, no importa, disfrutan el finde!). Gracias por leer y por sus comentarios… ¡les agradezco!

  1. Don’t sell the vest, it looks great on you! Plus the color/style is pretty classy, reminds me of something I would see women on Park or Madison Ave wear… won’t find a better looking vest than that one ;)
