A LITTLE EQUESTRIAN + MOTO JACKET


I've been searching high and low for a moto jacket for quite some time now. I'm really not a huge fan of leather moto-style jackets. They remind me too much of those tacky pleather "going out" jackets everyone had in college, and I just can't bring myself to wear something like that. So, with leather out of the question, 50% of the moto jackets out there are eliminated from my options. I prefer the look of cloth moto jackets, but they're hard to come by. And after factoring fit and details into the equation, it's not hard to see how difficult my search has been! I stumbled upon this jacket by mistake recently at Banana Republic. I'll admit, it's not the "perfect" moto jacket I had in mind, but at this point, I'm not sure that even exists... (the struggle is real). However, I do like that it's cotton, and that it's a good cropped length but not too short. 


I'm not one for trends. I generally prefer youthful updates on classic pieces... but this jacket is a bit "edgy" without straying too far. And it's at a great price-point for a trendy item (it's also 40% off right now!), because no one wants to break the bank for a piece that might go out of style. 

I paired the jacket with my favorite Ralph Lauren Oxford that I've slowly been collecting in every color (oops) and some grey denim. I added a bit of an equestrian edge by tucking in the oxford, adding a belt and riding boots (similar). It was the perfect balance of edge + classic style for an afternoon roaming around Georgetown.


In other news, I'm excited to share my first holiday style look of the season later this week! Stay tuned. As always, be sure to check out my Holiday Gift Guide if you need some gifting inspiration!
