I’ve had my sights set on the perfect leather / moto jacket at least four years now. I have tried hundreds on and even bought one or two inexpensive ones that seemed to fit the criteria but ended up not being “just right”. I was and have been willing to invest in a more expensive one so long as it was the one. Seriously, you would think I was trying to find a husband all over again – I was that picky!
In my mind, if I was going to fork out the $$$ for something, I wanted it to be worth it and not be in the same searching position all over again a few months later. Well friends, I finally found the perfect one! It was right before my New York trip last fall and I was planning out my outfits and layers so that I would be comfortable working and shopping in the city all day. I knew the temps were going to be warmer but I also knew I would be in cooler office buildings for our handful of meetings. So after taking a few laps around my local mall (Southpark if you’re a native) I decided to browse Nordstrom for the millionth time. I had been shopping there for weeks just browsing different categories but somehow missed the glorious rack completely dedicated to a rainbow of this style moto jacket. I tried two on (black and brown) and instantly knew it was the one – (cue Hallelujah chorus). It was a no-brainer so I quickly checked the tag to brace myself for what I was getting into and was pleasantly surprised by the most reasonable price!
The styling possibilities for this gem are endless. When I say I wear it all the time (when it’s not 70 deg. in January) I mean all. the. time. You all should know by now I get the most out of my pieces so it’s no surprise this moto jacket tops dresses, the coolest fringe denim – duh! and more girly skirts to balance the look. But just in case this one isn’t your perfect match, I’ve linked up some other faves that might just strike your fancy. Hope you guys have the best hump day!
