Who could forget that Zara contrast sleeve jacket from this past winter/spring? My sister and I spotted it daily on the streets of NYC, sometimes a few times a day, and ended up texting each other "ZLJ" (for Zara Leather Jacket - even though only the sleeves were leather) whenever we saw one. It was almost like the license plate game on road trips. Kind of.
Anyway, this is my take on the ZLJ (which I actually tried on but it just didn't fit me well). I've had this leather jacket forever - my mother actually spotted it about 10 years ago when we were shopping in Hong Kong, and I'm so glad she did! I love it, and wear it every year without fail. It's probably the only item of clothing I still wear from that long ago - don't you love when you get something you can wear years and years? The only thing about it is that it's a little short for this weather, so the vest was perfect on top. (It's been so cold in New York I swear I feel like I don't even know what to wear these days.)
How are you dressing for the colder weather lately? (Assuming you're not in California or somewhere else that's still wonderfully warm...)
