Leather Sleeves

Jacket: c/o Shop Lately   Top & Skirt: thrifted   Boots: Urbanog   Earrings: c/o Shop Lately


This mixed media jacket from Shop Lately is my new favorite piece of clothing! I've been eyeing this style of jacket for the longest time, so when I had a chance to get my hands on it, I didn't waste a minute. In fact, just the other day I also purchased a leather sleeved blazer (just wait until I show it on here...hehe, it's the only blazer I would happily wear), so there's something about leather sleeves that get to me. The contrast it provides is such a welcome touch of edginess to any structured clothing!

Also, how fun are these earrings? It's been a while since I've worn statement making earrings like these, but I love the dangling fringe and rounded hoop design. Such a fun pair to throw on and instantly feel more stylish, even if you're wearing a simple outfit!

This is what I wore to my last critique for Design class, and when I sat down, a girl I've noticed who has awesome style, complimented me on my outfit.
"I love your jacket! You always have the coolest shoes too."
So we talked fashion for a bit, and when I voiced how I'd always admired her style as well, she said, "Yeah, I get a lot of weird looks for it. I bet you do too."

That made me start laughing because man, that is so true! Just because we don't wear jeans and a hoodie everyday we get these oddball looks for breaking the norm. Its definitely refreshing to be able to share that feeling with someone else!

Maybe I'll have to see if I can convince her to appear on my blog...hmmmm. Haha, she has this awesome urban bohemian style guys! Our class is always so quiet though, so it may be awkward to try and strike up a conversation again. If we talk more I'll definitely try slipping that in though.

PS: Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers concerning my previous post. It means so much!

GAHHHH I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS OUTFIT. I'm a sucker for red, a sucker for jackets with a masculine twist, a sucker for lace, and a sucker for looking generally awesome, which you do.

OH THOSE SHOES. I'm an unabashed shoe addict at this point. cannot tell a lie.

I hope you get that girl on here! The more fashionistas, the merrier. ;)

love,
a

I absolutely love your outfit, so stylish! Your jacket is gorgeous, I love leather sleeved tops, they look so unique and different from any other plain top.x I love your boots and red looks so great with khaki.. Love your earrings, totally agree with you, they can make every outfit look so stylish! I know what you are talking about, I live in a city where most of the people wear sneakers, hoodie and jeans every single day and each time I wear something different I get that weird look.. Well I guess that's not a bad thing after all!:)

Ah man, LINDA! This outfit! I love how you were able to combine olive and red without screaming Christmas. And that jacket? Umm, leather and tough and then gilded with gold zippers? Yup, that definitely screams you.

Isn't it funny when you find someone who is also interested in "weird" fashion? I have a girl in one of my drawing concepts classes who is super stylish and dyes her hair a lot and we both love to talk fashion! It's fab having fashion friends (nods deeply)

(psssst.. sorry I've been a bad commenter. I know I have. I've been reading, but my comments have been a lackin'. I LOVE YOU OKAY AND MY ADORATION FOR YOU HASN'T DIMINISHED!)

Chic, chic, chic and lovely. Great choice in your ear-wear, bold and gorgeous. And that skirt! What a nifty style it has. The reds from top to toe are so clever and, yes, of course I so enjoy your legs in those tights, dear :) Wow!

Jo said...

I have always loved to look at your fashion photos, Linda. The whole theme for this post looks like it came out from a fashion magazine. Love the colour tones and all.

Hahahaha... I think you must have been over the moon when that classmate talked to you. I mean if I've always noticed somebody and probably admired aspect of that person and all of a sudden, they talk to me, I would be really thrilled. She sounds like a nice person too. Hope you two would be able to connect more in time to come!

I LOVE, love, love this jacket! I have a military-esque jacket on my Christmas wishlist, and I really hope I get it. I love the contrast between a tough jacket and a sweet look, just like this one! Those boots are always awesome as well.

I hope you can convince that girl to appear on your blog! It's always fun finding other people who are just as interested in fashion as you are :)

I've been wanting a military style jacket but torn between one with sleeves as this one or just a regular one... I'll most likely end up buying both styles...

Hi Linda, I am so impressed but this outfit, they way you pieced the individually chic items together works fantastically! Love the leather sleeves and the red adds the perfect dash of colour. Its great that you guys don't fall into the norm of college dressing, its always good to be unique. Will be great to see her on your blog. Thanks for your fashionable insight, may your week be an inspiring one :)
