Moto Jacket Love

Do you ever buy something and not realize its true worth until later on? That is what this moto jacket is. I had a sweatshirt material moto jacket that I liked, but wasn't that warm. When I spotted this one on thredUP for a steal (real leather and under $40!) I decided to try it out. Needless to say it has been on repeat since I got it. The structure allows me to wear it as an outerwear layer or even as a part of my outfit as I did on this day when work was feeling a little chilly.

This was even the coat I took on my trip recently. Leather has the great quality of not being too bulky, but providing a nice layer of warmth the way a faux leather can't do. It makes a stylish, fitted layer and went well with all my outfits. With a scarf, I was perfectly comfortable throughout the vacation. Even this spring it's been a little workhorse for me in the mornings and evenings or whenever the high decides to be below 55!

What is something you have purchased that you never thought you would use as much as you actually do?

  2. What a wonderful find! I love the mix of hard and soft with this look. That tweed skirt is so pretty too. I bought a long white coat that I go to quite a lot. Never thought white would be in my closet. :)

  8. That has happened to me quite a bit where I buy something and am not even sure I should. Then when I start wearing it, I get lots of compliments and it turns into a staple. My felted yellow asymmetricalish cardigan is one! jodie

  12. That's one unbelievable steal: nice material and cut, perfect fit for you too. You know how most of the time, items on sale do not have the right size. I check your jacket links, there is one I like a lot and thinking about ordering it.
