Cool Down

by Jessica Sturdy on May 29, 2014

New York cooled down this week and I had to dig through a few boxes to find some of my jackets. I settled on this red one (or actually, came across it first and decided to stop looking) and styled it with some classic basics so the jacket would stand out. Typically, I feel like red and leopard print can look a bit… hooker-ish What’s the PC way to phrase this? Lady of the night?… But I feel like the darker shade of the jacket, mixed with the creamy white blouse, and a tasteful leopard print scarf doesn’t read street walker. At least, I hope not! ;)

2014 is by far the craziest weather year yet! Like, I just want it to be 80 degrees every day now. If it’s going to be cold though, this jacket is perfect! Also, loving those Zara pumps!

I think the burgundy and leopard work perfectly together, especially paired with jeans!

Aha, you look anything but hookerish. I wish it would cool down again. I was so excited for summer, and I already have two separate (but equally painful) sunburns. Since I’m so red, I guess I should avoid wearing anything leopard print for a while :’D
