Rebel for a Good Cause

I’d been looking for a non-leather, James-Dean-style motorcycle jacket for a while and I hadn’t had any luck. Until now.

Jacket: Forever 21
Sweater: Papaya
Shorts: H&M
Tights: Target
Purse: Nine West via thrifted
Shoes: Mea Shadow
Cuff: Lauren Harkness
Necklace: Gifted

I found this brown velvet biker-style jacket at Forever 21. Not only is it vegan, it was a great price.¬†I’ll be wearing this with jeans, dresses, and yes, shorts. I’m wearing shorts and tights a lot this fall. It’s a great way to extend my summer wardrobe (even though I didn’t actually wear shorts much in the summer).

My shoes were almost $200 originally but I got them for $30 online. I wore them yesterday with jeans, but they were hard to see.

cross necklace

I’ve had this cross necklace for ages and it has a special significance to me, but not in a way you might expect: My dad made this in the 60s. It’s this cool, carved wood, hippy cross and I love it! But it’s so in-your-face that I rarely wear it.

neutrals for fall

Until now. Now I see it as an artistic piece with personal, sentimental value, not an overtly pious statement.

Dusty Rose Jacket and a DIY Scarf

I’m wearing my dusty rose pleather¬†jacket again. This was an amazing find at Penneys. I wore it with gray in the spring and I’m wearing it with jeans today. It’s super soft and looks luxe.

Jacket: JC Penneys
T-shirt: Target
Jeans: GLO via thrifted
Shoes: Mea Shadow

My DIY t-shirt scarf sort of matches the denim. It’s a really simple project. If you haven’t tried making one, have a look at my earlier post that explains how.

The shoes are new. They were hugely discounted online so I had to snap them up. The original price was almost $200 but I got them for $30. Yes, I’m wearing them with socks. It’s not a faux pas anymore, as long as the heel is chunky. [Update: I’m wearing these with shorts in another post and you can see more of them.]
