Bubble Gum Pink


Layers are a girl's best friend with the latest round of cool temperatures. I went a little outside of my style comfort zone to create a different kind of layered look today {no blanket scarves here!). This "moto-chic" looks combines a cozy turtleneck, faux leather jacket, skinny jeans and ankle boots...and I'm totally obsessed with it.








Faux Leather Jacket: BLANKNYC | Turtleneck Sweater: J.Crew, color is from last season {similar color HERE} | Black Jeans: J.Crew | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bag: Chanel {similar style HERE} | Ankle Boots: similar HERE | Lips: Snob, Turkish Delight

It was by total accident that this outfit came together. I was putting a few looks together in my closet and I came to one of my favorite sweaters from last fall/winter -- how can you not love this pink! When I was putting together a fall color crush post about burgundy, I had noticed they were remaking THIS sweater again. It's super warm, comfy and I love the high-low hemline. {Unfortunately, the sweater isn't available in pink this season, but it is available in THIS turtleneck style.} Anyways, I was happy to see it was back in stock and it was a good reminder to incorporate it into a look. When I pulled the sweater out of my closet, it was hanging right next to THIS faux leather jacket and that's when the light bulb went off! It would be a little outside my style comfort zone, but I had a feeling I would love the combination together.

If you have been following along for awhile, you know I pretty much stick to classic and more preppy pieces. But, I have to say, I liked the switch up with this edgier {dare I say darker?!} look. It's amazing that a preppy bright pink sweater from J.Crew can be used in the same sentence as "edgy" and "moto", but I think that speaks to the versatility of the sweater! 

I hope you have a great weekend! We are off on an adventure this weekend. I planned a trip to a place my husband has always wanted to go for his birthday present back in September and this is the weekend we go! Any guesses? Follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy} and Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7}! See you back here on Monday!

  6. I absolutely adore this outfit, Rachel! First off, I love the way any shade of pink looks with black, I think it creates the perfect fuse of feminine and edgy and that's the overall vibe of this outfit, especially with the leather jacket. Yet, the Chanel bag maintains that feminine feel the sweater has, so everything is perfectly balanced and styled, as always! I love that you stepped outside of your comfort zone on this one because it's a look I love on you and you should wear it more often! You know, some of my outfits have come together in a similar way, just pieces hanging next to each other that happen to look great paired together! Thanks so much for sharing and I'll have to check out your IG this weekend and see where you two are headed, sounds like so much fun! Happy Weekend, beauty!
