Mamas, it's time to talk Fall Trends!! First up....the moto jacket.
I fully support running out and grabbing some badass leather moto jacket (this one is fabulous). I mean...Miranda Kerr sports one, baby in tow, so there you go. It's possible. And many of you have previously confirmed that it is indeed easy to wipe spit-up off of a leather jacket. There's no disputing that a leather moto jacket will seriously up your style game...forever. They're classic.
My issue, however, with leather jackets in general is the same issue I have with most jackets in general: I can't move my arms. And nothing makes me crazier than when my arms are constricted - especially when cruising around with the kiddos.
Happily, there are a ton of amazingly chic, made-to-move, washable moto jackets on the market. And if you treat your moto jacket like it's any old thing and throw it on over everything....BAM. Lookin' good, Mama.
Here are a few ways I'm wearing my moto jacket (both playtime and date night):
To Up My T-Shirt and Jeans Game
It's just jeans and a tee, right? But I feel so cool, which has got to count for something.
Look at me, daringly showing a little hipbone. It's the one "upside" to two surgeries in 30 days. Snort.
Actually, if I tie the knot juust right, there's little-to-no skin exposure.
jeans: J.Crew Toothpick Jean in cherish wash
Overalls? Really? Oh, yes.
Overalls are tricky things to layer. The sexiest part is showing off some skin, so if I cover up completely, I feel dowdy.
Moto jackets are just nipped in enough to add some, uh.....hunh. Womanly curves might be pushing it, but I'll settle for a hint of waist.
accessories: Madewell orange/red clutch (from top pic)...similar
And Now My Fav....Over a Preppy Button-Down
Lovelovelove what moto jackets do for button-down shirts. The collar with the other collar? Be still my heart.
Shall we do a close-up? Indeed we shall.
I liked this look so much I tested it with heels....
shirt: Elizabeth and James striped shirt....similar
shoes: ancient J.Crew flats....love these
accessories: Moop paperback bag
More soft moto jacket picks later this week....
