The Leather Jacket

Club Monaco Jacket (old, similar here and here), J.Crew Tank, Forever21 Jeans, Forever21 Pumps, Chanel Bag, NARS “Heatwave” Lipstick

This week’s looks have been full of my favorite closet staples, with today being my leather jacket. I bought it from Club Monaco around this time last year and I don’t know how I went that long without a good, black leather jacket. I’m constantly reaching for it to throw over everything- from a girly chiffon dress to boyfriend jeans and a tee. I thought I would share a few of my favorite leather jackets out on the market right now:

Under $200: This grey ASOS numberThis quilted option under $50, this Obey suede one and this textured biker one.

Splurge Worth: I love this Anine Bing quilted leather one, this IRO beauty, this contrasted Vince jacket and my current favorite, this Current/Elliott one.

On Sale: This Michael by Michael Kors jacket is a no-brainer, this Marc by Marc Jacobs option is a cool alternative to the typical black one (but still as versatile) and this gorgeous Vince option.

Little White Dress

Burberry Trench, Goodnight Macaroon Dress c/o, Charlotte Olympia Flats, Maison Michel Hat, Clare Vivier Clutch, Rachel Pally Belt (old, similar here), NARS “Heat Wave” Lipstick

This was the first weekend in a while that we actually spent in the city (we’ve been doing weekend trips to warmer destinations…Napa…Santa Barbara) but it felt nice to wear a few layers and bundle up at night. My Burberry trench will always be my favorite piece of outerwear anytime of the year. I get so much use out of it, especially living in San Francisco where you usually need a coat with you no matter the season. I paired it over this embroidered little white dress from Goodnight Macaroon (under $100) that’s just as perfect for summer as it is for fall.

Summerland

Kite & Butterfly Kimono (similar here and here), Isabel Marant Top (similar less expensive version under $80), One Teaspoon Shorts, Sam Edelman Booties, Maison Michel Hat, Chanel Bag, Thierry Lasry Sunglasses

I picked up this gorgeous kimono by Kite & Butterfly from the darling boutique, Bonita, while we were in Santa Barbara. We headed over to Summerland on our first morning in town and stopped by a delicious brunch spot, Cafe Luna, before heading to the beach. I paired it the next day with my favorite Isabel Marant top (last seen here) and One Teaspoon shorts (last seen here) as we explored downtown and checked out the SB Public Market. I felt like we were in Mexico with all of the colorful tiles, patterns and walls- I loved them all!
