Leather and Leopard

I never thought of myself as a leather jacket kind of girl, but when I found myself in need of a last minute layer to go over a ball gown for Mardi Gras, I picked up this tan leather jacket and thought “well, if there’s a time to splurge on an edgy jacket to dress up or down, it’s when I have less than an hour and a half left to get ready for a ball.” I like to think it looked awesome that night and every time I’ve worn it since, which has been a lot. 

While I can’t seem to find this particular jacket online, I’ve linked to a similar one…along with similar items for everything in this outfit. While shopping one’s own closet is great, it sure doesn’t make for easy outfit posts.

Tortoise earrings {similar} Black bow flats {similar

Black clutch {similar} – Sunglasses {similar} – Gold ring

Now the question would be, can I pull off a black one? Or would that be the place to go the vegan leather route to try it out. I love this one from Emily Schuman’s cupcakes and cashmere line or this ponte knit and vegan leather combo.
