On a weekend getaway to my friend's PA lakehouse in my custom The Ave Los Angeles skull & rose chucks, new Express striped ruffle asymmetrical mini skirt,  Free People top, new Vigoss grey suede moto jacket by and my new YSL black medium Kate chain strap purse! 

Hi there!

I think I've already spoken about how much I love this style aesthetic but to reiterate: girly meets rock and roll is my absolute fave! This fall we are seeing ruffles stripes and moto jackets everywhere so naturally I had to style the trends!  

I styled my new Vigoss grey suede moto jacket (by from Nordstrom) with an older cream Free People top, and a new Express asymmetrical striped ruffled mini skirt. I finished the look with my custom chucks from a great store in Los Angeles, CA called The Ave. They are skull and rose Day of the Dead print with graffiti lettered "Lina" on one shoe tongue and "Ballerina" on the other. I love these high tops so much. I also wore my brand new Yves Saint Laurent black medium Kate chain strap bag that I'm just in love with. I love the black on black detail making this a classic yet edgy purse.  

Now that it's cooling down a bit in New York it's fun to layer on the moto jacket and scarf or blazer. Next week I'll highlight the blazer must have for fall! 

Xo, 

Carolina
