Wear of the Week: Boom + Leather Vest


Although we live close to the coast in a laid back Southern California town, I frequently like to channel an urban vibe for my ensemble.  There is something uber chic about wearing all black, accenting with leather, and accessorizing with bold accessories and sequins.  It makes me feel I am in the bustling streets of NYC instead of 20 yards from the ocean in a quaint downtown.


This is exactly what I was going for in the final Wear of the Week look.  I layered the Boom sweatshirt with a vegan leather vest (one of the most versatile pieces I have in my closet for fall), red pants (they’re ba-a-a-ck), black leather boots and oversized hoop earrings.

Am I in Malibu or Manhattan?  You would never know.

How are you beating the heat but embracing fall styles?

Crew fabulousness in the way she can make a pair of jeans look suitable for any occasion. Continue reading
