Tough but Sweet

Lately I've been getting a lot of use out of this beautiful leather jacket. Its open front and cropped length make it not quite winter-worthy, but it's the perfect outer layer for spring and all the way through fall in the mild San Francisco climate. I loved the way it looked over these light chiffon layers; it added just the right amount of toughness to the soft, feminine look.

Dress: Fremont
Skirt: Anthropologie
Boots: Timberland Boot Co.
Jacket: Skin Graft

lovin' the cropped leather jacket... and layered over the sheer chiffon is as you referenced, a wonderful juxtaposition. I love the layers of colors and textures... from the pretty bow to the boot laces. gorgeous!

you are a genius when it comes to soft & ladylike paired with tough & sassy! I adore that jacket so much, it really is perfect for this indecisive weather! Hope you're having as much lovely sunshine in the Bay as Santa Rosa is!

I love the jacket and it looks so lovely with the chiffon dress. I always like juxtapositions in fashion and this one is one of my favourites.

Love the proportions in this outfit: the shirt, skirt and sleeve lengths work really nicely together.

That tie-neck tunic is just about the perfect garment. I swoon.
