Happy Monday, friends! I hope you get to enjoy a day off today in honor of President’s Day.
This is the outfit I was hoping to wear for our Valentine’s Day dinner, but it was pouring rain and I didn’t want to risk getting my light-colored suede jacket and shoes messed up. I’m sure I’ll have more chances to wear it, though, as springtime approaches.
I love a structured jacket for making an outfit look chic and put together, and this suede moto by BLANKNYC is such a good one!
I have it in the Midnight Toker, and in a weak moment I ordered this Blondie color as well. I plan to put the taupe one away for next fall and wear this off-white color into spring. (They also have a faux leather version for under $100 if you like that option better.)
I tried a couple of different camis under this jacket. I have a pink one and a leopard one and a white lace one, but this white woven cami one seemed to work best. I know, I’m such a plain Jane.
I don’t love this particular cami, but I keep it because I can’t find anything better. It’s also no longer available so I can’t link it. I wish White House Black Market would make their reversible woven cami in a solid white.
In my perfect world, the cami would be an inch longer so it shows below the hem of the jacket, but it’s not a deal breaker.
I’m always a sucker for a great pair of pumps, and I’m loving this blush tone for spring. I linked up a bunch of options below.
I debated wearing black jeans with this outfit, but I thought they were too stark against the lighter colors of the outfit so I opted for my go-to raw hem legging ankle jeans. These jeans are from last year, but I still wear them a lot.
I like how the raw hem gives them a bit of an edge, but they don’t have any rips or tears or other distressing so I feel like they dress them up more easily.
I actually love this look with my ripped skinny jeans, but I’m not sure I’m cool enough to pull those off with the pumps. Ha! I’m probably over thinking it, but it’s those minor details that make a difference, isn’t it?
This gold clutch has come in really handy recently. I find myself carrying it almost every time I go out to dinner. It dresses up a casual jeans outfit, and it’s also nice enough to carry with a dress.
Overall this is a fairly casual date night look but I really love the combination of denim with suede moto and pumps.
And this jacket, guys… isn’t this color perfect for spring? I hope I get a lot of wear out of it. I plan to style it with a t-shirt, jeans, and mules or booties for daily wear, and I bet it would work with pants and a blouse for the office.
