Killing Me Softly

There's an edgy undertone to some of my favorite outfits, like pairing provocative stilettos with a 1950s full-skirted silhouette. It's this type of playful irreverence that makes J.Crew's silk motorcycle jacket so attractive. Choosing a soft, feminine fabric to create a piece of clothing that's traditionally well-structured was an unexpected - and brilliant - move by Jenna Lyons. While I may not be able to wear the jacket in the rain, it'll definitely be my preferred layer for this year's autumnal chill.

Outfit Notes: J.Crew Silk Motorcycle Jacket; Banana Republic Silk Tee Shirt; Banana Republic Jeans; Guess Shoes; Forever21 Ring; Forever21 Earrings; Vintage Dior Clutch; Revlon Steel-Her Heart Nail Polish

  1. Jessica I absolutely love this jacket on you. I have a denim moto jacket I got at Gap and it's cute, but your silk jacket is feminine and very, very pretty. Can't wait to see you wear it again!
