I Love Leather & Stripes

Happy Tuesday! I’m super proud of myself, guys. I’ve been on a roll posting twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a hot second and it feels so good to have some consistency.

After having a come to Jesus moment about my personal style – I’ve thrown myself into revamping my wardrobe. I combed through my closet and tossed anything that didn’t align with my style. I also moved my favorite pieces up to the front where I could reach them on the reg.

And this outfit is a prime example of those key pieces.

I’m embracing my affinity for all black, menswear, and edgy styling. Roll with it.

I’m super proud of my skills in thrift shopping. I’m spoiled and live smack in the middle of a ton of thrift stores in San Francisco and I shop them all the time. I found this amazing stripe button down from Crossroads for like $14.

I also picked up this amazing biker from H&M and my fave black jeans from American Eagle for less than $50 each. God, saving money feels so good.

But honestly the hero piece of this whole outfit is the bag. I mean come on just look at that bag. This purchase was 100% inspired by blogger babe Payton Sartain. I kept seeing photos of her rocking her satchel all over Instagram and her blog and I was so beyond sold on it.

Except obvi I had to get it in black. Lolz.

The sun is finally starting to come out here in San Francisco and I’m beyond ready to start sharing some spring and summer outfits with ya’ll!

Also omg guys I’m so excited I’M HEADING HOME IN MAY! I’m from a smallish town in Norther California and will be popping up to hang out with my family and hang out at the rodeo. I’ve been so homesick lately and I’m so ready to head home to mama’s cooking and some good old fashioned rodeo fun. And obvi I’m taking you guys with me.

Have a great start to your week, babes!
