Loco Moto

So, I’m a wee bit obsessed with the moto. And by “wee bit”, I mean I’ve ordered 3 shown here plus another ASOS leather one. The moto jacket gets me. If I had to define my signature outerwear style, ┬áIt’d definitely be the moto. It dresses up and down in such a great way and lends a bit of edge to outfits. And we have Irving Schott to thank for such a versatile, iconic piece.
The moto jacket debuted in 1928 at the Harley Davidson store in New York City. The Perfecto, named for Schott’s favorite cigar, became the symbol for rebellion and ruffian-ism. And now, 85 years later, it’s a wardrobe staple. It’s a little bad, but in an oh-so-good way.

Date Night Done Right

Ah, date night. For me, it’s an epic struggle to strike a balance between sneak-up-on-you-sexy and casually cool. I want an outfit that commands the attention of my date, but not in an obvious way. The struggle is real, lol! I came across this sweetheart neckline bodycon dress on ASOS and thought I’d give it a go. Now a bodycon fit hugs the curves and not in a subtle way! But paired with a denim jacket, strappy wedges, and a pop of color clutch, I feel like I get the balance I’m looking for.Date Night Done Right
