The One Trendy Piece You Need

Can you guys believe it’s already April?! I feel like the year just started and we’re inching towards the halfway mark of 2017! I mentioned last fall that I hate living for the weekend, and I’ve been working on being present and not rushing life by – but sometimes it’s just so hard! Especially as it gets warmer, I find myself speeding through the day or just waiting for it to be Friday, but I keep reminding myself that I need to cherish each moment of every day!

Anyways, I’m sure you’ve noticed that suede moto jackets have been super on trend lately – especially this one. And while that particular one is totally on my wishlist, I could never spend $200 on just some jacket. SO after setting out on the hunt for a similar, but affordable one – I came across this amazing suede moto jacket!

They’re such a great staple for spring because they can literally be worn with anything. I paired it with a sleeveless turtleneck sweater and this amazing pair of sandals for a night out, but have also dressed it down with my new favorite sneakers to walk around town! I also think the brown/cognac color is perfect because it can be paired with so many different things… I can’t wait to wear it with my white jeans!

I’m all about the get-up-and-go, and a suede moto jacket is the definition of that. Whenever you’re in a rush, it’s so easy to just throw this on and still look put together… which seems to be an everyday occurrence for me 😉 Here’s to an amazing week for all of us!

  2. You look incredibly chic in this jacket! It’s such an effortless piece for looking fabulous and the color is so versatile. I can’t believe it’s April and we’re approaching summer. I’ve been trying to relish every day too, which is especially important to do when you have kids and they’re still so small and cute. I wish you a great week lovely babe!

    Love, Liz

    Have been dying to find a suede jacket, in a light pink or grey. So hard to find one with the right fit though!
