A Bad Moon Is On The Rise

Free People Hat and Bag(ebay)
Faux Leather Jacket (thrifted - no label, a few years old)
Isabel Marant Blouse (ebay)
American Eagle High Rise Jeans
Rag and Bone "Margot" Boot (ebay)

It'd been really chilly with periods of hard rain and wind so when the skies finally cleared a little, this beautiful mist rose from the ponds. I'd worn some favorites this day, my trusty AEO high rise jeans, this great, simple pair of Rag and Bone Boots and my favorite shirt ever, this beautiful Isabel Marant blouse. I hadn't worn this particular hat in a while, I usually reach for either my simple black UO fedora or my black wide brimmed hat from AEO but this outfit call for a little something extra. The wide brim was also really nice for keeping my head dry earlier, this is one of the few hats that won't fly off my head with a gust of wind! I'd slowly replaced my two fake leather jackets, this one and my F21 jacket, with some beautiful leather jackets this past winter. While I'd worn the F21 jacket into the ground to the point where it was finally falling apart (I'd thrifted it and still wore it for 3 years after that, the thing was a beast!) I couldn't bring myself to get rid of this jacket. It has a certain look that my other jackets don't and it's still in good shape so it's probably not a bad thing to have a jacket to give my Helmut Lang one a breather.

I know I've talked about them before but the American Eagle high rise jeans are just so completely great for the price. I've compared them to the J.Brand Marias before and actually prefer the AEO ones to the J.Brands but you just get such a great jeans for a much smaller price. My other pair lasted 3 years of hard wear before the seams started to wear out and personally, that's pretty great for $45. (They go on sale sort of often but they are worth full price.)
