Suede, Stripes & Studs

FriYAY!!! My second favorite day of the week!

Today, I wanted to share an outfit that I’ve been dying to actually wear in real life, yet the weather has yet to permit suede anything. Therefore, I’ll just continue to wear it in my air conditioned house until further notice; looking chic while doing the laundry and dishes! Ha, only kidding. Well, sort of!

I bought this jacket during the #nsale, as most of you know I talked about it on Instagram probably a little too much! It was just way too well priced during the sale to pass up, and I loved the color, so naturally it landed right in my cart and into my closet. The color is “spice” and well pictures simply don’t do it justice, because it is beautiful and the quality is amazing! I love Blank NYC and have worn their jeans for years. I am now starting to have a problem in the jacket department folks, as they are top notch. Not a problem for anyone else, except for my bank account, and possibly an eye roll from my extremely good-looking husband. 😉 From fit to detail, I don’t think I’ll ever buy another brand of suede or leather jacket! If you don’t own one, I’ll be sure to link them and some other options at the bottom of this post! Leather and suede jackets (even faux) are a must have in my opinion!

Also, can I just tell y’all, as if you didn’t already know, I have a major shoe addiction! Needless to say, a mad crush on these booties! I literally stalked them repeatedly on the Nordy’s website because they were such a hot item during the #nsale and they would sell out like hot cakes every time they were restocked. I mean within seconds, y’all! GONE and GONE! So, I pretty much had given up all hope, until one random night, I found them available, in MY size and a 5.5 only! They had gone back up to full price, YIKES but you only live once. Am I right?!

So glad I was able to snag them to add to my collection! They go with so much and for a girl who wears a lot of flats and sneakers, are super comfortable.

 I also love this outfit paired with turquoise. As a New Mexico girl, born and raised, turquoise is a must! I love it and love the statement it makes for any outfit. Especially against my striped top from Modest Truth & Trend, it is such a perfect accessory. This specific turquoise piece is from Daisy Dukes! With their edgy and trendy style I can always find something I can’t live without on their website. Linked below!

With that, it might not be today, but very soon this outfit will make its debut in the city of Lubbock and honestly, I can’t wait! I am ready to dust off my leathers and rock them all over town! Date nights, CDO, even the grocery store better be ready! The cooler weather is coming, and for the love, will hopefully be here to stay! Can’t wait to style the season!

Have a great weekend & cheers, friends!
