AJ Wears :: A Pink Suede Jacket

Can we talk about how thrilled I was with the weather this week? Buying a suede ANYTHING in Arkansas this close to summer is a serious gamble (and probably a little dumb), but you gotta think ahead. Things sell out. The world moves on, and I'm minus one super cute pink suede moto jacket. But Mother Nature threw me a bone and I actually got to don this on a beautiful April day.

If you want to talk about the bag too, we can. I've been admiring the Jimmy Choo biker bag for years now, "hearting" on Poshmark and stalking the internet looking for a deal. My diligence finally paid off - I managed to find a well-loved Biker and only paid $200 for it! Not only is this style not sold anymore, these things went for $1500 new! I think we can safely call this the deal of the year.

Jacket, Asos (exact).
Tee, H&M (recent in store, similar from Nordstrom).

Heels, JustFab.
Bag, Jimmy Choo via Poshmark (shop gently loved Bikers on Posh!).

AJ Wears :: Lots of Pink

I was born to be matchy-matchy. My G-Ma Louise is a woman of fine matchy taste, with embroidered matching sweatsuits, necklace and earring combos, and always the perfect shoes. So when I got dressed this morning, I put on pink shoes and thought...these would look great with my rose gold purse. When I went to grab a jacket, my inner Kermit said, "Grab the pink coat!" 

If you too are a matchy-matchy soul, break up the monochrome with black. It's basically fail-proof. PS - you know how I like looking put together, but feeling like I'm wearing sweats? This dress is basically a nightgown. You're welcome.

Dress, Asos (exact - TTS and cheap).
Coat, Asos (similar from H&M // similar from BooHoo).
Necklace, BaubleBar.
Bag, Gucci (super similar from JustFab!).
Heels, JustFab Kateryna.

AJ Wears :: Neon Pink

I have no idea why certain pieces stick. I can't pinpoint if it's color, style, or just general new-ness of a piece that makes me want to wear it over and over again, but this neon blouse has been on my body at least once a week since I got it. Work? With a blazer. Date night? Leather jacket and cool heels. Casual Saturday? Under some black overalls. That's the magical clue we're all trying figure out, isn't it? What is it that makes a piece extra perfect? Once I figure it out, I'll let you know, but until then it looks like it's a little bit of trial and error, and a lot of luck.

Blouse, J.Crew Factory (exact).
Jeans, DSTLD.
Jacket, Milly (this LOFT jacket has a cute similar feel).
Heels, Manolo Blahnik.
Bag, Balenciaga (check out pre-loved Citys on Poshmark, where I found mine!).
