My summer jacket

Hello Loves!

Is it weird that my most worn item this summer is a leather jacket?! Who am I kidding… it’s super weird.

I started this summer season off not owning one single leather/pleather jacket. But after being hooked by a recent collaboration, my collection began. I am now the proud owner of 2 rock and roll leather jackets. Although my collection may not the biggest…, I have plans for an expansion…, I am incredibly proud of it.

My obsession with this Zara number (see pics below), is becoming a little too intense. I have worn it none stop! In fact I actually wore it yesterday, and the day before…. oh shoot and the day before that!! *Insert blushing face. Every outfit I put together seems to be missing something, and that something is a cropped leather jacket. Whether it be a flirty dress, workout wear, or a t-shirt and jeans/shorts combo, a leather jacket makes the outfit. UGH. Some of you must be thinking, so what? Wear what you love! The problem is it’s SUMMER, and I am stood in 30+ degree heat in a bloody black radiator! People must look at me like I’m crazy!

I mean I am a little crazy, I admit that.

Anyway to cut a long story short, I think the moral of this blog post is… I need to get a new bloody jacket. HAH.

Have you been wearing anything a little too much this summer?

    There’s nothing wrong with obssesing over an item. I’ve been wearing my white vest on repeat since I bought it, felt a little bit guilty at first, but that feeling went away, haha. This kind of staple puts an outfit together. Great jacket. x

    Have a great week,

    Absolutely adore this look! I think it’s a great combination of comfort and chic. I have been searching for a jacket just like yours! Right now I am obsessed with boyfriend jeans as they are easy to dress up or down for the summer 🙂

    You’re so funny! It is weird to wear leather in the summer, but when it looks this hot why wouldn’t you?! You look great and that jacket is amazing!!!!

    I LOVE this outfit, girlie, and I don’t blame you for obsessing over leather jackets because they are bomb! I have a serious obsession with anything and everything leather, be it jackets, leggings, skirts, I just instantly gravitate towards them; I love this one from Zara! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

    As a fellow over-wearer of my trusty leather jacket I can definitely appreciate this post! Maybe leather in summer isn’t the most practical but it looks SO stylish on you!
