Leather Jackets, Skinny Jeans and Colourful Scarves

I haven't worn my leather jackets much this winter. It usually warms up a bit during the day in Brisbane so they have felt a little too heavy, but two colder days in July had me reaching for my leather jackets for the early mornings.

What I wore:

JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff Micro Bedford zip satchel in twilight

Why I wore it:

A very colourful outfit! I really liked the combination of a jumper, these magenta skinny jeans and a pink printed scarf last time I wore it. This time around I picked my grey polka dot knit and this multi coloured diamond print scarf. Even if the pink didn't match the magenta of the jeans exactly I really liked this combination! Especially with this bright cobalt leather jacket for an extra bit of warmth on a very cold and windy day. As well as working from home I had some tradies over coming in and out of the house all day, and Cooper had a bath at the groomers. A very busy day!

Why I wore it:

We were running a little late this morning and I think that's why my scarf looks like it was thrown on in a hurry - it was 😂 I thought the blue and red in the scarf went nicely with the cobalt knit and burgundy jeans. The black leather jacket didn't stay on long though, by the afternoon both it and the scarf had come off as it was so warm at school pickup time a jumper and jeans were all that were needed. 

The scarf came off pretty quickly in the morning as after school drop off we went to grab some more milk and run a couple of errands. It was cold enough to want the scarf on, but my youngest son who had decided not to wear a jumper was cold and I figured it would be better giving him my scarf than letting him drag my leather jacket on the ground! He did look very cute in it!



How You Can Wear it:

Jeans and a leather jacket is a classic winter outfit combination. You can add a little extra colour with some bright skinny jeans or a colourful scarf, or both!

  8. I'm totally in love with your first outfit. That leather jacket is such a gorgeous colours, and goes really well with the magenta jeans and multi-coloured scarf. I bet your youngest looked very cute in the second outfit's scarf :-) We are in the middle of a heatwave at the moment, so even the thought of leather jackets and scarves is making me break out in a sweat :-) Wishing you the loveliest of weekends, Mica xxx

  18. Hello Mica, hope you're doing good!

    I feel envy, we're having a hotter summer here in barcelona, so I wouldnt mind to wear a jacket like yours right now (which is amazing and it admits infinite options)

    And I'd say the scarf is the perfect touch to give the outfit your cheerful personality!

    Keep safe,

  36. Darling outfits. I had an aqua leather jacket that just never fit right. It was soooo cute on the hanger, though. Dad gum it. Love that pink diamond scarf. Reminds me of a Monet painting.
    Hope you are staying healthy and safe as Covid numbers rise in Australia.

  39. Your scarfs are giving these outfits life! Hahah, I really adore your layering game for the cold weather outfits so far. I can only fantasize about layering with scarfs here as the humidity will not allow it. I remember wearing one while in the highlands and it wasn't even winter and already I was shriveling up like a prune. LOL. You look beautiful in both outfits! I hope you and the kiddos are doing fine and keeping safe :D xoxo We just had rain here and after it stopped, it's back to humid weather again :D xoxo
