LEATHER WEATHER

For quite some time I have been searching for a fun fedora to accompany me on my adventures & to pair with my favorite leather jacket for fall.  Free People has done it again with the Extended Brim Clipperton.  Berry shades are that much more exquisite this time of year, making this floppy hat one I couldn’t pass up.

INSPIRATION:  

miranda kerr leather pants

I came across an excerpt in Vogue featuring model Melissa Tammerijn & immediately fell in love with the lush romantic look.  The oxford blood hat against her always ethereal fair complexion are stunning.

It is no secret that Miranda Kerr has killer fashion sense.  Her pairing of leather pants with a chic white button-up are the perfect mix of rugged & classic.

I wore this outfit on a date night in Chicago with my love & our friends.  We ate at Francesca’s on Chestnut, took a stroll on The Magnificent Mile & wandered through Water Tower Place (trying on ridiculous items, denying our age 😛 ).  Tyler suggested that we try a bottle of wine from a region of Italy we will be visiting next year.  We chose the Rosso Pesce from Tuscany.  We paired the wine with the Bruschette alla Romana for the antipasti & the Rigatoni con Broccoli / Napoletana for the main dishes.  I highly recommend everything!

Tyler lives in Gold Coast & I am so in love with the area & what it has to offer.  We enjoy visiting Division Street Farmer’s Market on Saturdays, taking walks to North Avenue Beach in the summer, & admiring all the historic town-homes on the way.  Now that fall has arrived, this happened to be a perfect night to break out this outfit & embrace the weather in leather.
