I wanted to share a little outfit post with you guys. Nothing special, just a simple outfit featuring all my favorite items in my wardrobe, like my leather jacket and silk blouse. Simple, stylish and a little edgy I guess. And which place is better to shoot something like this, than the streets of SoHo?
Like I said, nothing to special. Just a case of basic black trousers and a white silk blouse. These jeans are my favorite pair ever, they are from Levi’s and they just fit so good. They are the 710 flawlessfx super skinny jeans in the color ‘night’ – which is off course, all black. This is actually my second black pair and I also have the white ones as well. They are super comfortable and very budget friendly and durable. My first pair has worn great for over a year and has been washed regularly. It’s still in very good shape, but the black has started to fade when you compare it to a new one. I still wear it tough… for dog walks and stuff.
The silk blouse is actually one of my new favorites these last couple of months. I’ve always been a big fan of white blouses since they go with, well let’s say EVERYTHING. So I wanted to invest in a higher quality piece. My other white blouses were all from H&M and they are a very good price for their quality, but you feel that they wear out quite quickly. This silk blouse is just so soft to wear and I feel like I can wear it for days without it getting dirty. It is a bit harder to clean and you need to be careful – it’s still silk you know – but I’ve been pretty careless with it and it’s holding up great. I even put this in the washer at 30 degrees and iron it instead of steaming.
I’ve paired these monochrome basics with my new leather jacket. I’m definitely the biggest fan of black leather jackets, but since I wear a lot of black, I wanted to try something differently, resulting in me buying this leather jacket in forest green. And I haven’t regretted it one moment. The color is fairly dark, so it blends in perfectly with an all black outfit and yet it’s neutral enough to pair with loads of other colors. I’m thinking neutrals, yellow, orange,… Will I be buying an all black leather jacket again, yes. I do feel a black leather jacket is an essential wardrobe staple which goes great with all other colors as well.
For accessories I grabbed my favorite items: the Acne Jensen boots and my Proenza Schouler PS11 Classic bag. Like the rest of this outfit, these items go with absolutely everything I own and love. And this bag has been such a delight while traveling. It fits so much stuff and keep its shape so well. It’s definitely one of the most durable bags I own – and most expensive one as well. The boots have been a blessing as well, they felt so comfortable from the moment I put them on and they have only become more pleasant to wear. They fit my feet perfectly and are just so easy to wear and clean. I’ll do a review on them soon.
