You won’t believe the “problem” I had today. The forecast said it would be a low of 50 degrees to a high of 80 degrees. So it may get warm in the afternoon, but cool if I am near Michigan Avenue or by the time I leave the office later tonight. So the “problem” regarding what to wear was easily solved with a lightweight t-shirt, jeans and a leather jacket. I realized that this is what it must be like to live in sunny California!
Top: Torn by Ronny Kobo Cheetah Peplum Top, no longer available. This Torn by Ronny Kobo Kaitlyn Cheetah Dress, now $107.50, is so short it could be worn as a top, or see this Markus Lupfer Leopard-print Jersey T-shirt, $190
Jacket: All Saints, no longer available. This Lot78 Riley Leather Biker Jacket with Adjustable Sleeves, $1,545 would be a great investment.
Jeans: G-Star Arc Loose Tapered in Track Destroy, $240
Necklaces: Long Copper Crocheted Necklace and a Mixed Metal Shorter Chain Necklace, no longer available. I wanted to wear a mix of metals to blend with the gold hardware on my handbag. Try this Urban Outfitters Bazaar Bells Necklace Copper, $30 with this Michelle Roy Short Multi Chain Necklace, $60. Or juts wear one piece like this Ben-Amun Multi-Chain Necklace, $170.
Handbag: Gorgana Black Leather with Gold studs, no longer available. This Marc Jacobs Rio Studded Leather Tote, $1345 is similar.
Shoes: Joe’s Jeans Wedge Slides, no longer available. I would like to own these Pedro Garcia Open Toe Wedge Sandals, $460, too!
