A major investment but a beloved statement staple – keep looking until you find the perfect one for your body shape and style. I am loving this Seed one for a few reasons. The motorcycle detail on the sleeve, the antique gold zips – the softer shawl collar – the fitted shape.
STYLE TIP : Put as much $$ as you can into a leather jacket that will stay in your wardrobe for many many years – work out price per wear choose a fitted style that is timeless and keep things simple. Do what I do – Use your leather to winterise your summer dresses – easy way to get more wear out of them in the cooler months without adding too much bulk or warmth if you live in Queensland – for those in chilly areas – add in the tights, turtleneck knits and boots.

SLOGAN T SHIRT
I know I love a slogan T-shirt and I know I posted Etre Cécile before but they do them so well. If you are thinking – Brrrr Brunch – then layer up or go for the sweatshirt version of this. And it is a cute conversation starter if you are on a date. And also totally my thinking if I am meeting for brunch or any meal – let’s eat then chat .. If the B & W palette is too ordinary for you – swap in another colour for this T-shirt – personally I would probably rock this sweater to add in some pastels.

ETRE Cécile – Bonjour Let’s Eat from The Outnet
Now $58 (on sale 45% off )
These remind me of old gold Chipie retro sneakers I had back in the day – I know everything is all about the Adidas Superstar and Stan Smith silhouette – that is why you want to mix it up and stand out from the trend and go for a different retro 70s trainer vibe. Plus the gold is a cool little statement with all that monochrome and gold zips in the biker jacket.
