Under the leather

What is is about leather jackets that makes you feel tough and invincible after you put them on? I must say it is quite an exhilarating feeling that I've experienced with my very first leather jacket. I've been wanting a leather jacket for myself after buying one for the bf for Christmas and as soon as I put this on at the shop, I was a goner. It practically begged to be brought home with me!

And one more thing I have to say about leather jackets, they seem to go well with just about anything. Here I paired it up with a long bohemian dress, after seeing so many renditions of this outfit in the magazines I recently bought. I thought it would be fun to impersonate some of the styles that I liked in the editorials. So perhaps this will be the first of many to come.

I'm not sure how or why blogging has become a very big part of my life but it truly has. Lately, I've been bogged down with endless work related crises and I'm really glad I have my blog to escape to. It has become a haven of sorts that I can feel safe in, somewhere I can forget my problems albeit temporarily. Somewhere I can be myself again, stripped off all responsibilities and worries. And for that, I feel quite thankful for this avenue.

What about you? Has blogging become a part of your life too?

Jacket: Kitschen
Dress: Amour

Blogging is definitely part of my life now! And I'm juggling lots of tasks during the week, so it really shouldn't be at the top of my priority list, but yeah it's a great place to destress!

And the jacket looks so lovely on you! What a great find.

I love leather over a flowing dress xx

Leah said...

The leather jacket is really a versatile piece of clothing... and I love how you paired it with your maxi dress. The print of the dress is so awesome.

I'm with you on the blogging part, it's a great stress-reliever.

Oh, and have i mentioned how lovely curls look on you?Because they do.

Blogging is such a wonderful part of my life. I don't even know what I did without it! It takes up lots of my time but it's so worth it.

I just can't get enough of this outfit. Your rings are awesome, and that dress! So, so beautiful. You're right about leather jackets - I wear mine all the time, with everything and anything!

Ilse said...

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Beautiful maxi dress!! You've found a perfect leather jacket for your closet!! It looks so cool!! I agree with you that blogging is an escape from reality! When I blog, I sometimes pretend to be a different character and it's a lot of fun! xoxoxoxo

Shop T.O. Live said...

I bought my first leather jacket this fall and loved how it made me feel - v invincible! I really like how you mixed it with something feminine and soft.

I can't quite put my finger on why I like blogging so much - there's something about sharing and gossiping about clothes and shopping ...

Don't you look darling! There's something about pairing tough & feminine together! Love both pieces! Your dress makes me think of summer!

I'm glad u like my new blog! i'm trying to engage in more heart-2-heart chats dere and hope it works out! many thanks to God for our sweet bfs :) i am thankful!

i love the print on your bohemian summer dress! pretty flowery prints. everyting in shops are really flowery these days...

i've got a leather jacket too & absolutely love it. goes well with dresses, jeans etc. but is it alittle too warm in m'sia for leather jackets? i'll be roasting if i wore it here in s'pore. i'm really afraid of the heat! my mum nags saying i've been staying in hot & humid s'pore for the 1st 19 years of my life & now i'm complaining abt the heat... haha. i guess dis happens after u've experienced 4 seasons...? i luv autumn the most =) not warm n not too cold.

Your leather jacket is gorgeous! ♥ No wonder you fell in love with it in the shop. It goes beautifully with the dress.

I enjoy blogging, but it isn't a big part of my life. Well, sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't. I'm always changing my mind about my blog. It's a love-hate relationship...
