Okay, can we please talk about this weather here in NYC? I swear, we had an O-K spring for like… .3 of a second, I woke up the next day, and it’s 75 and sunny! Hellllooo warm weather!

I struggle a lot harder to put together outfits when it’s warm rather than when I can just bundle up and it miraculously looks like I planned my whole outfit. I never like to show too much skin. I hate wearing shorts, my legs are not my best feature, never have been… never will be. I swear they’re like little Jimmy Dean sausages (Weird metaphor, I get it. I’ve attached some photos for your viewing!) If I’m wearing shorts, I’ll balance it out with sweater or a jacket so I don’t feel too over-exposed. If you read my blog, you know I’m obsessed with leather. It’s my staple texture for almost every outfit. (If you’re new to my blog… haaayy! Sign up for the newsletter.) 

I recently collaborated with Wilson’s Leather for this look! This biker jacket quickly became something I can’t see my closet without. The jacket has a lace-up detail on the sides as well as numerous pockets and a belt. A biker jacket like this can be an effortless way to add a lot of detail to any everyday outfit. It also has a zip out liner on the inside for all climates. Stylish & practical, you go Wilson’s!

    What size belt did you get? On the size chart is says size 4-6 is an extra small, and that’s me but I’ve never been an extra small lol… This can’t be right? Really like the look though!

      Thank you! I know, me either! It is totally crazy. I did get an XS and it fits perfectly. There’s also a lot of room to adjust.

    I think you look great in shorts, so wear them while you are young.

    I really like the outfit that you put together here! Can you tell me if the leather jacket runs true to size? The reviews are all over the place saying true to size and that it runs small. Can you provide any help?

      Mine ran true to size, actually even a little bit big if anything! 🙂
      To be safe I would definitely order in your normal size. xo!

        I love this jacket but so confused on what size to order ! What size did you buy? According to the chart I’m XS, but I’ve never been an XS – I’m usually a S.

          Hi Mindi! I bought my regular size, a M. But definitely wish I went a size smaller. If you normally wear a small, go for the XS!

    I love this jacket and I’m so going to buy it now. I’m having a tough time deciding which size to buy. I’m debating between a small and xsmall. You said you purchased a medium, is it extremely baggy on you? Is the jacket tighter fitting or boxy? I normally wear a small in tops. Why did you purchase the medium?

      Hi Kylie!

      I purchased a medium because I usually wear a medium in jackets- but this one definitely ran a bit big. I would recommend going down a size 🙂
