Vested Leather

leather jacket (True Religion old, loving THIS Michael Kors), vest (Old Navy, Jacket Version), tee (Enza Costa), jeans (J Brand), satchel (Cambridge Satchel Co), boots (Jeffrey Campbell), bracelets (Stella & Dot and CC Skye, Voce on Clay, Lexington), watch (Tag Heuer), ring (Lagos), shades (Ray Ban)
It's a wonder Kristin and I even got these shots considering I was being heckled by a passerby...major heckling, like--tossing curse words at me for smiling and not making eye contact with him (I almost think you can see him in my shades), which is why I'm pseudo laughing in the last shot!  Needless to say I found it to be extremely entertaining considering the poor guy was clearly off his meds or still intoxicated from the previous evening!

Onto the rig, yes?  One of my favorite aspects of fall and winter is the abundance of layering--so so good!  What's fun about this little number is you really could reverse the layering (vest on top and leather jacket underneath) OR you could layer with a denim vest or jacket on underneath as well.  While this look has a more urban feel to it, I love pairing this jacket with feminine pieces, too, to toughen her up a bit.  

One last little bit...I often get asked about my hair so I wanted to take a moment to give a very well deserved shout out to not only my best hair gal, but also the salon itself as it is a danger zone in the best kind of way imaginable!  If you live in or around the Lexington area, I HIGHLY recommend the lovely Shawnee at Voce on Clay Avenue.  The gal took my hair from THIS to what you see now with zip notice and only having blown out my hair previously.  She is such a doll, beyond hip with amazing technique, and listens to her clients which I just love.  As for Voce, it is the swankiest little joint in the heart of one of the cutest strips in Lexington.  But better than it's decor, stylists, and interiors...there is a stinkin' boutique within the salon!  A boutique loaded down with Rebecca Minkoff, CC Skye, J Brand, Current Elliot, Twelth Street by Cynthia Vincent just to name a few.  It goes without saying, I tend to get into a little trouble every 6 weeks!  Y'all make it a good one!
