If there's one thing I love for the winter, it's interesting outerwear. 

I don't know why but every office that I've worked in loves to unnecessarily run the AC in the winter. Why is that? I've never understood, seems counterintuitive to me. As a result, I find myself bundled up in my jacket for a majority of the workday. My intended disguise, so quietly hidden underneath, rarely gets revealed. 

I'll admit, I tend to gravitate towards solid colored coats and jackets as they're the easiest to work with. But when your outerwear suddenly becomes your daily disguise, you can't help but to make for the dark side and trade safe solids for prints, textures, and bright colors. And no one does unique outerwear better than BB Dakota

Two years ago I had an insatiable preference for leather jackets but I didn't want just any leather jacket - it had to be something unique, something with a hood. After relentlessly hunting for weeks on end for what I had in mind, I finally found a tangible product that seemed to have been modeled after my imagination. Indubitably say that 5x fast, the hooded leather jacket trust it's cute was produced by non-other than the popular BB Dakota

This year I've shimmied towards a focus on patterns and colors to keep my looks interesting even in the modern day igloo. And of course, what better company to turn to than BB DakotaChevron, natty plaid, I'm so there, this winter and next winter.

  15. Just before I started reading this post, I thought to myself "man, Lucy goes bold with her jackets" and now I understand why! I used to be the same with clothes in general where I'd naturally gravitate for solid colored pieces because it was easiest to work with to mix and match.. but as of lately I've been venturing out to different prints and textures so I can experiment more with my outfits! I love your neon scarf and the overall colorful look of this outfit (or any of your other outfits actually)!
