Stripes, Shoes, and Bags: Back to Basics

Hello everyone!

How have you been?
Today I'm back with new outfit post. This outfit I wore last Friday night, we had dinner with friends in the city. 
I couldn't decide what to wear since It was chilly outside and was supposed to rain that night (and it did... pouring rain started right after we had left home). When a process of choosing an outfit takes long time, I just follow a simple rule: stick to the basics.
And I chose basic white top (old, like this top from Mango) and black skinny jeans (Paige). I also added biker leather jacket to keep me warm and cheetah print shoes (old from Nine West; like this flats) to match the jacket and jeans.

     In my book, biker jacket is a staple piece of a closet. It will never go out of style and you can combine it with everything. Usually leather jackets are pricey but I found an inexpensive option in Zara. Zara brings new style of leather jacket each season. I bought my first jacket from them 7 years ago (it was the only jacket I brought with me from Russia), it's still in a good shape and I wear it often.
We took Stewie for a walk before heading to Manhattan.
        I also was wearing Sophie Hulme handbag and Burberry sunglasses.

Thank you for reading,


  1. Love your jacket! Zara definitely has great selection and quality, and most importantly, it's affordable. You just look great in the jacket <3
