Does anyone else feel like it takes years at a time to find a leather jacket that they love (that also doesn't have a $400+ price tag??) I'm constantly seeing them on friends and bloggers and marveling at how they all say they found it at Forever 21, H&M or Express. I have been truly envious of some friends' shopping abilities - and finally, after years of hunting, I found the elusive brown (faux) leather jacket I had been searching for!
A friend posted it on Instagram, and I searched through every Express within walking distance until I tracked one down, and it was on major sale! (Now if only I could find a great style black leather jacket instead of always having to ask my roommate for hers!

As if I needed a better reason to love it, the jacket also matches my adorable new Sam Edelman booties perfectly! I've been pairing both of these with all of my favorite neutrals and my tortoise sunglasses to tie together the whole look.
Can you tell I'm loving the caramel brown color lately?! I've even got my new balayage to match it! (For those asking - I get my hair done at Salon V in Lincoln Park, and I absolutely love it!)
I've definitely been trying to simplify my wardrobe lately, and have been sticking to a few key statement pieces that tie my looks together like my new Coordinates necklace (with the coordinates to my college house & the first place Dalton and I met - the cutest anniversary gift from him!)
Simple gold details, light layers, and a great jacket are all I need to get me through Spring in Chicago!
