I went out with my boyfriend the other day. The weather was nice but a little chill. I decided to layer up for a chic elevated look. I’m obsessed with this vegan leather asymmetrical jacket which will be available soon on the site shopcsbnyc.com so subscribe to stay updated if you like this look. I stuck with warm tones pulling the look together with a pair of rustic orange leggings. I just love this chocolate color of the leather jacket which pairs perfect with denim to dress down this style if you want to. I kept a more polished look which I usually do, but I would def rock with jeans for a casual but chic style.
If you want to achieve this layered look all you need is a lightweight leather or vegan leather jacket, and a tailored vest. The softer the leather the better and easier it will be for you to layer on top, and more comfortable. I am wearing our asymmetric vegan leather in Espresso. I have to admit I was so impressed with this jacket. It’s not easy finding faux leather that is still luxe and good quality. I definitely hit the jackpot with this piece. Since the jacket was a dark brown color, I broke up the darkness with a warmer layered vest on top. This vest was perfect to pair on top because it has movement but is still structured. It falls beautifully on top of the jacket. I love the hard and soft textures of both pieces layered together. I recommend this look for Fall weather because you can easily take off and put on layers if the weather changes throughout the day.
I came across an older guy on the street. He designed an Ankh cross by using different colored pebbled rocks. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen. He even gave a little history lesson which left me intrigued and eager to do my own research. Check out a few fun facts below about the Ankh.
The Ankh also known as the key of life is a Egyptian hieroglyphic symbol that means “life”. It is known as the Ancient Egyptian cross. It is said to protect against harmful and negative energy and spirits. Some say the Ankh resembles the connection of woman and man the top portion representing a woman’s uterus and the lower portion representing male genitals. There has been a lot of debate over time about the original cross and which one came first.
The buildings and architecture downtown are so amazing. I had to take photos!
I had some Think Coffee to warm up a bit as it got cooler a few hours later. I actually haven’t had coffee in a while so I eased back into it with a Dirty Chai latte with almond milk. It was yummy and the perfect pick me up.
It was a nice day well spent. Sometimes the chill days are the best.
