Is it Spring yet?
I know we still have 5 weeks left before the official first day of spring, and the groundhog did see his shadow. So that unfortunately means there were 6 more weeks of winter.
But with my wedding right around the corner in Mexico, and my recent leather jacket find ( pics following this introduction) I am feening for Spring or at least "spring" temperatures. So I channeled my spring style in the winter...as an opportunity to show my recent find. 🔦
I was ecstatic when I found this Rick Owens biker jacket in a size 42, hanging on the clearance racks at Century 21 Department stores. I had already been in the store about 3 hours by then, and had 2 bins of sale items, but no leathers in my size. Until I did my second sweep! I even met a fellow follower who came to the store because of my Insta-stories showing the size 38 leather jacket for $175!
I have owned a number of avant garde Rick Owens pieces ( my fave being a coat that literally could be mistaken for a down comforter), but never a staple leather of his.
The Adidas Ultra boost is without a doubt one of the most versatile sneakers I have owned. I am sure you can tell from the wear.
From a comfort standpoint, not many sneakers can compare; the ultra boost is amazingly comfy for casual wear and athletics. From an aesthetic standpoint, it has a beautiful silhouette, a shape that can be worn with practically any outfit. A general rule is you want some tapered, cropped, or rolled jeans to show off the sneaker, dresses (as I have styled with) also work amazingly well. The all white ultra boost are a staple; I honestly didn't realize they were that cool.
