Back to my old self

Weather has finally turned cold enough to bring out my favourite leather jacket of all time-Balenciaga Motocycle jacket in the colour Havana. I do apologise with all the brick colours in these pictures. Part of the downtown Portland is surrounded by beautiful old brick buildings (too matchy match with my jacket). I know the jacket is a huge splurge but I intend to keep this jacket in my closet forever. And by the numbers of times I have worn it, I am considering it a good investment.
If you have been reading my blog you already have seen this jacket (and it's black sister) numerous times. I am always trying to find pieces to wear with these two moto jackets. Do you have any suggestions for me on what else can I pair them with?

Missoni infinity scarf (other colour here), Sam Edelman Petty booties (here) and Proenza Schouler PS1 medium bag in plum (many colours here)

Love the colour of the jacket; would go great with my new hair colour! Your boots look cute and comfy. Happy autumn!

Oh, I missed reading your blog! That jacket is too cute. Splurges can totally be worth it! I love how you paired it with a scarf and textured tights for a chic fall look. I also think it would look great with dark jeans and tall riding boots. Or even a long maxi skirt could be super cool!

Have a great week!

LOVE ur moto jacket, totally my style! I agree with investing in a leather jacket b/c with leather, it becomes even more awesome with wear through many many more fall & winters~ I've had mine for act over 2 yrs & I already want another one ;)

That jacket is beautiful :) I've always wanted a Bal jacket, but never took the plunge as there is honestly so few times a year I can get away with a leather jacket in QLD!

Doesn't stop me admiring yours though - and giving you the advice of wearing it with everything! There is nothing such a beautiful jacket wouldn't go with! :)

Thanks mica! When I bought this jacket I was second guessing myself a lot feeling guilty about spending so much on a piece of clothing! I have no regret now!

Kiwi Fashion Blog said...

Thank you!!! You know I justified by wearing this jacket a LOT! So cost per wear isn't too bad now lol

Love that you added a pop of color to that earthy-toned look :)

You work the elements of this outfit so so beautifully. I just love the tonal hues - I would never have thought of mixing burgundy with brown ... but it is just lovely for the season! :)

Hope your weekend is stunning!
