Leather Sleeves: Round One

{the Fit} lace top: Josephine (similar and awesome)| leather jacket: Michael Kors (similar in charcoal) | vest: Zara | pants: Blank | clutch: Hobo | shoes: Old Navy (this year’s style) | sunnies: House of Harlow | necklace: Super Star c/o Gorjana | nails: Essie- Armed and Ready

If you have been following Style On The Line for some time now, my love for this Zara vest is no secret. Proof: here & here. So instead of buying a new leather-sleeved jacket (because leather sleeves are all the rage in case you didn’t know), I decided to make my own! Above is the same trusty vest with a sleek leather jacket underneath. Pretty ingenious if you don’t mind me saying… ladies feel free to duplicate this and try a zillion other options! I can’t wait to throw on a denim vest, fur vest, floral vest… ahhh this is only Round One.

Any other leather-sleeve combo ideas? Let me know what to feature next!

Suede City

{the Fit} peplum top: ASOS | blazer: TopShop (with leather lapels!) | jeans: DL 1961 | shoes: Luciano Padovan (similar ones) | bag: suede city c/o Foley & Corinna | necklace: borrowed Lucia | bracelets: c/o Oia Jules, gifted Tory Burch | sunglasses: Crush

My new Suede City tote from Foley & Corinna fits perfectly into my transitioning to Fall wardrobe (and I about peed my pants when it came in the mail!). It hasn’t come off my arm since. Last week, I wore this out for dinner at Paris Club, ‘nother little double date with the hubby and some friends. Love this city and it’s culinary magnificence!

Combined all my favorites into this Fit: burgundy, peplum, leopard, statement necklace and a tassel for good measure. Done & done!

Walkin the Runway

I had the exciting opportunity to walk in a fashion show benefiting medical research for the Children’s Memorial Hospital a few weeks ago and it was such a blast! It was my first time down a runway and I didn’t fall, phew! Wanted to give you guys a recap on the event…

Can you find me?

Loved my hair for the night!

My entire outfit was from a fabulous boutique in Chicago called Perchance. I’m wearing this gorgeous Smythe jacket, AG JeansLoeffler Randall wedge boots and Kaia Peterka clutch. During my fitting, I had some time to browse (and shop!) the store and seriously recommend you check it out!  Their locations in Southport & Gold Coast are so chic and their new fall pieces are amazing. I am dying for this jacket.. swoon.
