Happy New Year, Fashion tealers! I hope that you had a prosperous 2016 and are heading into an even better 2017. I am seizing every opportunity to try and make it great.
And yes, I know, it's hard to "look on the bright side" sometimes with a new year and new changes. It's hard for me, too. Like, really hard. I'm the worst with change. But, I don't want anyone to get bogged down by the hard stuff. For the new year, I want you to remember two things that have taken me a long way. One's from a totally cheesy Disney Channel movie, but I still remember it, so that shows how powerful it is. The second I've heard a lot, but it took one of my favorite singers, India Arie, to release a song with that title to make it really meaningful to me. I also remembered that my English teacher from years back got a tattoo of this phrase, and since then it's stuck in my head.
1. When things are bad, they don't stay that way.
2. This too shall pass.
Make those two phrases your mantra for 2017, because I promise, it'll be just fine.
Before I get into the outfit, I just wanted to say that the reason that you might have been recieving my posts late (*growling*) is because Blogger is having an issue for me in which my blog posts don't post (but it says they have) then just randomly show up a week or two later. It's ridiculous. But it's fine. Who knows, maybe this post will do the same thing. But I'm so sorry for this. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. Happy day after new year, everyone.
Now, to the good stuff. This outfit I'm so excited about.I got a gorgeous leather jacket for Christmas, and I'm debuting it for the first time. In three different outfits. This really means I love it, then. To draw attention to the leather jacket and what I paired with it, I just wore the leggings for all three outfits.
I know what you're thinking. I thought you'd pair something you loved with something else you loved, like boyfriend jeans? And I will, just not today. I want you to see the jacket and how versatile it is in this post today.
The leather jacket is so traditional that it just drives me crazy in the very best way. It's so simple, with a great structure, soft leather, and silver hardware. You'll have to see it to believe such a gorgeous piece of clothing exists.
boots: Burlington Coat Factory
shirt: gift (probably New York haha)
bag: Walmart (it's reversible!)
Outfit one has been done! Make sure to stay tuned for outfit two and outfit three. Each one has a different style to it. As you'll see. This one is more STREET STYLE/URBAN.
