March Madness & Faux Leather

P1250874

Spring keeps being an elusive beast over here but nevertheless, the days are noticeably longer and sometimes even surprisingly sunny. But we still get lots of rain so a jacket is still a must on most days.

Leather or faux leather jackets are the perfect transitional piece. I am very aware of animal rights issues so I actually prefer imitation leather. This jacket by Esprit made its way into my closet about six years ago and has been the perfect staple ever since. I just love the cool shade of dark brown which resonates nicely with my natural hair colour but also goes well with the black I wear nowadays. I think it’s incredibly hard sometimes to find the perfect shade of a particular color. I can be almost obsessive about finding the perfect colour. Do you feel that way sometimes?

Different Ways to Wear Your Transitional Jacket

I love matching my faux leather jacket with dark brown as you can see in this shoot. I’m well aware that a lot of people are gladly exchanging their boots for lighter footwear these days but for me that would be a straight ticket to catching an early spring cold! I see some girls at work walking around in their sneakers and barely ankle length pants already – even when it’s only 6°C outside and raining! So for work wear I still opt for boots and booties on most days. That said, I am looking forward to being able to wear sneakers and ballerinas again soon.

I have two outfit variations for you today – one with my trusty Skinny Jeans, the other with a tweed A-line skirt. I’m wearing a pastel pink top in both looks and added my new Becksöndergaard star print scarf for a bit of casual fun.
