Some days I glam up with bright colors, and some days I keep it simple with a look of black on black on black. This is what I wore last Saturday for a day of errand running that started with a quick coffee date with Karl at our favorite coffee place – Vigilante. It was one of those perfect fall days that has enough of a chill to warrant a coat but warm enough that when in the sunshine you can enjoy the outdoors.
Jacket: Leeron Leather Moto Jacket c/o Universal Standard (XS) | Sweater: BP (L) | Pants: Pivot Jogger c/o cabi (L) | Bag: ALLSAINTS via Rent the Runway Unlimited | Boots: La Canadienne | Earrings: Serafina Two-Tone c/o Jenny Bird | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
I mentioned this sweater in this past Saturday's Weekend Reads. It's not thick, it's like a lightweight stretchy chenille which is great indoors or when worn under another layer. I like the tunic length and that the sides have split making it easy to French or half tuck the sweater which I did here. The turtleneck is big but not tight or bulky. I recommend sizing down. Reviews say that it pills; I haven't had that issue yet. When you dry it, don't hang dry as it will stretch longer. It comes in three colors, sizes up to 4X, and is less than $40.
With it are the cabi Pivot Joggers which I featured previously in this casual Friday outfit. I wore these all the time in early fall with sneakers and bare ankles; I've worn them with heels. But neither are practical for a cold weekend morning. I like the look with a slim lace-up boot like these. Especially if your joggers are a bit cropped, this is a way to keep your ankles warm without ruining the line of the clothing. These boots are waterproof and lined and roomy enough that I have them on with a pair of thick merino socks.
And the jacket, I wore it before in this review of the Universal Standard moto jacket and have worn it several other times on Instagram Stories and in real life. I really love this jacket. It's buttery soft, the hardware and details are just flashy enough, it's made with such quality and care. It's soft enough that I can push up the sleeves, roomy enough to zip up over my large bust, and relaxed enough of a fit that I can fit it over sweaters but it doesn't look sloppy over a simple tank or dress.
