Before the worst...

With not much to lose but so much to gain

Leather jacket: Topshop | Tank: Topshop | Maxi skirt: Glitterati | Purse: Deuville Bag from Louis Vuitton | Shoes: Soule Phenomenon | Accessories: Glimmer

I was very much covered on a rainy Tuesday...I figured, the spontaneous rain showers and thunderstorms provided the perfect backdrop to premiere my brown leather jacket from Topshop which I finally finally got to wear. I was perpetually on the hunt for the perfect brown leather jacket. I found one which was great 2 months ago but it had a hood and I'm not that much into hoodies- I love the whole biker vibe so I'm happy I practiced patience, not impulse shopping, and waited for this one to come along. And it did! Good things come to those who hustle. I wore it as contrast to an all black outfit: my basic staple, a black tanktop and a semi-sheer chiffon skirt from my brand Glitterati's upcoming collection... I decided to wear the black version as it is a staple but this skirt also comes in a wide array of colors- yellow, purple, white and pink! Stay tuned for that as I am very excited to launch our Back to School collection. I paired it with layered bib necklaces, both from Glimmer by Glitterati which were a combination of a mirror bib and a wooden, studded beaded bib. Kept everything as simple as possible---but paired it with my Only the Marvelous Soule Phenomenon wedged boots which perfectly complimented the look. It was a bit darker than my usual summer staples... but I love it how well brown and black worked well together unexpectedly in this look.
