Spring Green and Rugged Leather

Luck of the Irish Shift Dress and Faux Leather Jacket

This Spring I’ve vowed to wear more jackets. Now if you really know me, you’ll be shocked by this post because you know I’m not a faux leather girl (or real leather for that matter either). As much as I LOVE the trend and really appreciate a good leather jacket, I just feel like I look weird in it! I don’t care if it’s sleek black, cognac, taupe, you name it, I just look awkward! I broke out this vintage jacket of my mom’s from the 80’s (early 90’s possibly) because I need more jackets in my life! Yes, I still look and feel awkward but that’s okay! As much as I love this classic swing dress I knew it just need a little something extra and this jacket did the job!

Kelly Green is a wardrobe staple, in my opinion. It’s not just because it’s March, or that I’m obsessed with St. Patrick’s Day, or the fact that I’m very Irish. I just love the color and feel like it’s one of those colors that I personally can wear year round. It does however help that it is so close to St. Paddy’s Day, so naturally I broke this little dress out for a hot sec. While I already showed you a super casual look for the upcoming holiday, I like keeping my options open. Typically, I go super casual. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m accustomed to being asked to dance at least once  (I’m a former Irish dancer) or if it just because t-shirts are much more forgiving of green beer, but I like a comfy cute look for the day. I stepped my outfit up just a wee bit (feel free to hate me now) with a sassy jacket. I know, I know, faux leather is not Dallas’ thing but I think it ties the whole outfit together pretty well!
Give me your tips for rocking faux leather in the comments!
