I'm not going to lie, I'm in need of a good, solid dose of inspiration. My schedule has changed so much in the three months I've been in Philly, and -- besides the occasional upset -- I feel as though I'm wearing the same thing day after day, for convenience and function. This is a feeling that has left me feeling at odds with my closet, despite knowing full well that there is plenty to wear. Usually, I'm in some combination of jeans and a tee. It's easy, but it's starting to feel stale (and by starting to, I mean I'm over it).

These were taken a few weeks back, on a day when I had a little extra time in the morning to get dressed. I wore this to work, and promptly changed into jeans and a tee (!!!) once I got home to go out with Chris. One thing I am learning? How to love sneakers again. After years of not liking how my legs looked wearing sneakers, I'm saying 'F it' and just doing the damn thing. Time is of the essence lately, and sneakers are comfortable, and more importantly, allow me to move. It's a plus that classic Chucks look pretty decent with most things.

Get the look: Jacket: Aeropostale (c/o) // Top & skirt: Lulu's (similar & similar) // Earrings & bar necklace: Black Crystals // Sunglasses: RayBan Wayfarers // Converse Chuck Taylors

I really like the look of your coat and saw it for a great price online, but I'm a little hesitant to buy. In person does the quality of the jacket look more like real leather and, also, is the hardware shiney or stand out in a negative way?

It looks great in the pictures which is why I was thinking of buying it, but you never know. Thanks.

Love your skirt and love to see people with colorful clothes in the fall or winter. The combo with that leather jacket is very good! You have very interesting earrings, like them very much.
