Leather Jacket & Long Hair

Hello, hello! This is my first official outfit post with long hair, and I'm super excited about it. It's been so snowy and cold these past couple of weeks that I only had a small window of time to take blog pictures this past weekend. I was rushing to get an outfit together before the sun went down, so I just relied on some old faithfuls, most of which you've seen on the blog already: my best-fitting jeans, a great white button-up tee (from one of my first posts), a bright handbag, leopard booties (last seen here), and a leather jacket.

This leather jacket was my best souvenir from my semester abroad (these shoes are a close second). I feel like a total badass whenever I'm wearing it, and it's a great topper for pretty much anything, from a t-shirt & jeans, to a party dress. The booties are a bit ridiculous to wear around in the ice and snow (I know, I know!) but I was craving a change after a week of practical snow boots.

I find myself reaching for solid black and white tops & t-shirts more often than anything else in my closet (although I only have a few tops, so maybe I just need to expand my selection?). I found this James Perse tee at TJ Maxx last year (for around $30, I think) and I love the fabric and the fit. These Madewell All-Around tees have a similar, loose-body fit in a v-neck style, and I love them just as much. I have the black and the heather indigo colors, but I'm crossing my fingers that they will come out with a white one soon.

I was in NYC yesterday for a day full of meetings, so I'm writing this on the train back home. I actually wore this dress all day and felt like a million bucks (and managed to keep warm by doubling up on my tights). I've said it before, but when you find something that you like, there is no shame in wearing it over and over and over again. What are some of your go-to pieces?
