Black leather in summer

40 plus blogger

You know that in-between weather: not exactly warm, yet not really chilly, and it looks as if it might start raining any minute but it never quite does? It's as if Mother Nature couldn't quite make up her mind about the weather: sunshine one minute, rain the next and so on. In other words, the typical London weather...

Lucky for us, there's no dress code in London; anything goes. Well, at least in those parts of London that I visit... Maybe this isn't appropriate for Mayfair but for Islington it's just right: just a hint of boho, a cool rock vibe and plenty of attitude. Or maybe that's just me. Or me in London. Whatever.

  1. A great look! I do not have this concept of "chilly in summer" however : >

    1. Oh yes, there are chilly days, and hot days, and days that are a little bit both...

  2. Oh I know! It is just the same here in the Netherlands. The only positive is that we can wear our leather jackets!🙌🙌

    1. I actually prefer the cooler weather in summer (just a bit cooler, not cold, of course...) as I really don't like hot weather.

  3. I like -- and I mean really like -- your fashion choices. They display a complexity that mirrors your personality. You have a depth to you that exceeds what is found in most people.

    1. Thanks, Ally. I think we all have many layers or facets in our personalities, it's a matter of choosing to explore them, or not. As for depth... I believe life would be a lot easier and more enjoyable with less depth and with a more carefree, shallow approach, so I'm trying very hard to stop thinking so much and just enjoy life as it comes... But it seems I'm not very good at that.

  5. Perfect choices for a Summer that seems not to have appeared. The leather jacket adds an edge to the pants and tee. Your fringed bag is quite exceptional.

    1. Oh, chilly days are OK, too. There's always sunshine after rain, or rain after sunshine, whatever. Thanks, Jill!

  6. I hate that about summer! It's mostly warm where I am in the US but right now we've been having a lot of rain! No fun! I even busted out my boots and tights today :(

    1. Oh, that's too bad! I don't mind chilly days (as long as it's not cold) or even rain. I'm not doing very well with hot weather, it really makes me feel uncomfortable.

  7. I love you in a boho look. So nice and relaxed. I like the way the t-shirt ties in with the print on the pants. Sweet.

    1. Thanks, Connie. Yes, the print on the tee matches with the pants, it's a total co-incidence but I love it, too.

    1. Thanks, Jacqui. I've had this jacket for years. I might go months without wearing it and then suddenly I 'find' it again. I think a good leather jacket is a classic.

    1. Well, chilly doesn't have to be 'bad weather'... at least where I come from. It's more or less normal summer weather... when it isn't sunny and very hot, that is.

  12. This is definitely one of my favorite looks of your, Tiina! I love the cool graphic on your tee and the cute boho pants. Then adding in the rocker jacket and fringe bag! So cool!
