Trying New Looks


I have been playing in my closet this week
in my attempt to step up my daily dressing.

I have even been trying pieces that up until now I had said no to
I want my personal style to continue to evolve
and
 not just cling to my cherished standbys.

So this week I bought my 
very first leather jacket
and paired it with 
the only graphic T I have ever owned!

The jacket is from Target.
I didn't want to spend a lot on a piece
I wasn't sure how much wear it would actually get.
I paired the jacket with my wide legged pants from Anthropologie
and 
ankle boots also formTarget
for the very same reason.
Buying inexpensive pieces is a great way 
for me to try out some different looks.

Never having owned a leather jacket before
I am really happy with it
and 
ever so glad I tried it out!



I actually think this jacket will see a lot of wear
as I can definitely see it's versatility.
Here I traded the wide pants for jeans
and
 added my cashmere tunic over the white T
then added my statement brooch necklace and  black patent pumps.
I was so happy about the outfit
it was the perfect excuse to go for happy hour 
in Old Town Orange with my husband!

Oh the fun of an outfit you just love!



As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  1. Love this edgy look on you! If you ever come up the wine country, be sure to bring along your leather jacket. It gets cold up here at night ;)
    The glasses are all so darling on you. You are definitely a glasses and hat person. You look great in anything!

    1. I'll have to check out FRENCH ESSENCE! Up until now, i really didn't think leather jackets would work for me. I saw them as too masculine … but this one changed my mind! I have always been intrigued though … with the juxtapositions available with such a strong statement piece. I already have so many ideas for this leather jacket!

  7. Tamera, Look at you girl! Rocking that leather jacket you are. I love how you put a very TB spin on it with that Amelia Earhart T (very cool, I love it) and the long skirt. What a great look! Also like the longer sweater look as well.

    I too just bought my first leather jacket a few months back (well, it's pleather actually I think), after seeing all the women in Northern Europe with them. I didn't think it was me, but now it's one of my favorite things in my wardrobe!

    I love how you are trying out new looks. I need to do this. Love this post! xx Kim

  12. LOVE the jacket on you. Since my main form of transportation is my fuchsia Vespa, I actually own 3 leather jackets. I'm always trying to "beautify" my look because down/deep I'm not a pants person...I'm a "dress" girl. So.....I have a bright green (chartreuse?) jacket and two black ones....one a motorcycle jacket from ASOS (shout out to Grown and Curvy Woman blog). I will have to try your "edgy" look one of these days.....keep it up Tamera!

  14. Love the willingness to experiment and try the "nevers". Even better is to have such fabulous results!! I have always loved leather jackets and have owned many through the years. My current one is a moto style one, but I'm heavier now so I haven't worn it much this year. I miss it. You look fabulous in your jacket. I really love it with the wide pants (another fave of mine). After seeing you in all the wonderful oversized frames, that's my next challenge: finding the perfect glasses!! You are inspiring. as always.

    P.S. Had to laugh when our pictures came up side by side on Hat Attack. Great minds think alike? XXOO

  17. Your experimentation inspires me! The hats, the glasses, the leather jacket. And how you creatively put it all together. It's a great idea to buy an inexpressive piece and 'try it out.' Target is the perfect venue for just that.

    Thank you for sharing with Hat Attack!
