Happy Halloween! For this look I wanted to incorporate the traditional orange and black color scheme, but I was afraid it would become too theme-y, so I added a scarf to break it up.
I purchased this faux leather jacket at a boutique called Pitaya last weekend while visiting Ann Arbor. Anytime I’m in the area I am sure to stop in and check out what they have in stock! This jacket immediately caught my attention. The quilted detail felt really special to me, and I also really loved the fact that it didn’t have a collar. I was with my mom at the time and she mentioned that it’s a little different than what I normally wear and that sealed the deal for me. I had to have it! To tone down the edginess, I added a bootcut pair of jeans and these Briony Bow Earrings from Poshlocket. I thought it added the perfect mix of classic and girly so it still felt like “me”.
If ever you see something that you are really drawn to but feel like it doesn’t match your fashion aesthetic, don’t stress about it. If you can think of a couple ways to style it off the top of your head, it’s still a good purchase. It’s these types of buys that will help you evolve. Don’t feel like you have to pigeon-hole yourself into one style of clothing! Who knows – this might be the start of a new edgier version of myself!
