Loco for Leather

Y'all. I don't know what's come over me lately, but I'm all about leather jackets right now! I never thought in a million years that I would want one, but I do. Really, really badly. I always associated leather jackets with bikers, Uncle Jessie from 'Full House', and strangely my father (he didn't have a motorcycle but he did have a brown leather jacket that's older than me.. and that he still has...).

I tend to identify my style as classic, feminine, and conservative. Even more confusing why I'm coveting a rugged, edgy, masculine piece like a leather jacket. What can I say? The heart wants what it wants. Leather is an investment to me, whether it be in the form of shoes, purses, or jackets. So naturally it will take me forever to pick one out. Thankfully, it's still hanging around 90 degrees up here so I won't be needing one just yet! This is perfect for fall and I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up with one once it gets colder, but for now I will get my fix by drooling over them in stores and online. Here are a few of my current favorites!

I think that they're extremely versatile! You can add a little edge to a feminine floral dress, or jazz up a white t-shirt and jeans. I love the idea of getting a blush pink jacket like the one I've linked above. Not only does that add a feminine touch, but I think it will fit nicely into my current wardrobe- which is a HUGE plus for me! I have a harder time, especially with more expensive pieces, buying something that doesn't fit well with my current closet. Anyone else like me out there? I can't be the only one. Anyways, cheers to colder weather!

What fall fashion are you drooling over right now? Do you have anything totally outside your taste that you are coveting? Which jacket is your favorite?


  1. I love leather jackets. Like you said, they really can go with anything to change the look of the outfit. I don't have a true leather jacket, but I found a fake one at Target a few years ago for like $15 and it looks real, is super comfortable and has held up wonderfully!

    Good luck to finding your perfect leather jacket, you will love it!

    My friend found a cute more girly one from Zara that I absolutely love.

  3. Leather is my absolute favorite! I may have a bit too much of it.. (I have three leather jackets, a sweater and utility jacket that both have leather panels, as well as a leather maxi skirt..and I'll probably get more). It's such a staple!

  8. I've been crushing on leather jackets lately too! I have a brown faux-leather jacket that I got an amazing deal on a couple of years ago (think under $10 haha), but I'm kinda craving getting a nice one now!

  12. Leather jackets are also my favorite and I have three leather-jackets in total!

  13. I've had a love for leather jackets for as long as I can remember, but I always feel like such an outcast wearing it! Nice to know someone else loves it as well!

  14. The blush leather jacket is the cutest!

  15. I love the blush leather jacket! It really softens up a leather jacket.

  16. I LOVE leather jackets. I have two already but the blush jacket you picked out is SO pretty. I might have to add a third to my closet!

  21. I have a leather jacket, and I don't wear it nearly as frequently as I should! I'm working through the September issues right now to figure out what trends I'm interested in, but I'm really loving tie-neck blouses!
