Lady in Red (Leather)

I'm totally digging the red leather jackets that keep popping up.  Red is one of my favorite colors---besides black, white, or gray---to wear.  I like it on my clothes, my glasses, my shoes, my nails, my lips.  (Blame it on my mom and grandma for decorating their homes with an abundance of red!)  It's my go-to hue.  It's my... "When in doubt, wear red."  And I'm often in doubt about what to wear.  So a red leather jacket is a total lifesaver.
 I nabbed mine on sale at Target and have been dying to wear it out tonight... but I just couldn't decide how.  Seeking inspiration from the lovely Pinterest finds above, I asked you all on the Lovely Undergrad Facebook page which style you preferred.  And you loved the first look!  So here's how I'm wearing it out tonight:

My comfiest pair of dark skinny jeans.  A plain white tee.  The red jacket.  Camel-colored flats.  A dark turquoise crossbody bag.  Gold hoops.  A big gold boyfriend watch.  And a gold necklace...although I have a little red skeleton key hanging on mine!


How would you wear a red leather jacket?  I'm all open to additional ideas!! :)

Like I said on FB, the 2nd look is my fav. A big scarf, some bracelets, flared jeans, and converse all stars, so my style! :)

Cute. The first outfit is my favorite too! I don't really wear too much red, but I don't know why. Maybe I need a red leather jacket too.


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
