leather and layers

BCBG leather jacket
H&M denim vest and maxi dress
Handmade Bolivian bag (fleamarket in Ipanema)

On our way to do some errands, Lucas and I decided to whip out the camera for a brief photo session. To our surprise, the weather was perfectly sunny and warm-ish - a nice break from the incessantly windy and chilly days in good ol' Jersey and NYC. 

Here, I'm wearing a BCBG jacket that quite possibly stands as one of the oldest and treasured little fashion-related gifts from my parents. It's always hanging happily in my closet and is currently being used on heavy rotation. I remember begging them for this, which they thankfully gave me as a gift for my eighth grade graduation - yup, it's that freaking OLD! And thank God it still fits. I think this was inspired by my dad. He loved wearing vintage brown bomber jackets with the perfect hint of distressed leather and age. Actually, he always appreciated fashion and style in general- like father like daughter, I guess. :)
