Tough Stuff

You know how there are days when you put something on and you immediately feel pretty tough?  Bessie actually wrote about the same thing yesterday.  That's what this ensemble did for me. I think a lot of the feeling came from the moto jacket that my sweet sis got me for my birthday, but I think the black skinnies and the booties contributed to the feeling, too. 

Jacket: Rue 21 (Gift)
Sweater: Maurices ($6)
Black Skinnies: Old Navy ($15)
Booties: 6pm.com (Gift)
All Jewelry: Borrowed from my Sister

Strikin' a pose ;)


When I got home from work on Thursday (that's when I wore this), the Hubs said to my Little Guy, "I didn't know a Hell's Angel was picking you up from school." lol  I'm telling ya, I felt pretty tough all day.  It kind of made me feel like even though I had attorneys walking all over me all day long I could beat them up if I wanted to. ;)

Ha ha! I agree with Bessie. You look pretty tough! This jacket is so cool, especially with the studs around the wrists. It's weird how one piece of clothing can change your whole mood. I love my moto jacket too :) We could be Hell's Angels together, lol! Heather

I know EXACTLY what you mean. My tough outfits are some of my favorites. I absolutely love that feeling. Such a confidence booster! I would totally steal this entire look right off you, btw.

This looks great on you. Love the jacekt + sweater combo.
Dark skinnies + booties make me feel the same way. I'm not exactly intimidating but I feel tougher. That and a tight denim skirt, something about it just screams 'I have a motorcycle at home!'

It's very Sandy-in-Grease, but in a non-cheesy way. I love the biker chic look on you :)
