The wait is finally over! I found my burgundy leather jacket! I’m not going to lie, I have literally been on the hunt for one of these babies for two years now, if not longer! Two seasons of fall without this gorgeous and oh, so perfect jacket in my life. As much as I am digging all the faux fur feels for winter, they still can’t top this closet essential.
A few years ago (probably when I was looking for a burgundy leather coat) my mom picked me up a gorgeous black leather jacket while vacationing in England. I must have worn that coat almost every day. That jacket is literally like the jeans from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (minus the sisterhood, of course!) I have dragged it onto trains, planes and automobiles, stuffed it into my suitcase for countless layovers, and ran all over the continent in it. Despite my bizarre attachment to it, I still seemed to yearn for a burgundy leather coat, and alas, here it is!
I’m still totally swooning over it! My pretty burgundy coat is Michael Kors that I bought on sale at Marshalls. Being that it was the only one left in the store, I had my doubts on whether or not it was meant to be. Of course, it was a perfect fit!
What I love most about a quality leather jacket is that it can be worn and styled for any season. In the summer, I love to throw it over a slinky dress with a cute pair of heels for a night on the town. During those cool autumn months it compliments almost any pair of booties and is sure to dress up your favourite jeans. As for our chilly winters, it looks oh so chic with a pair of over the knee boots. For the spring, well, I haven’t quite decided how I will style this piece for spring, so stay tuned!
