Outfit: You gotta get out. Go far away.

Fringed leather jacket: Topshop x Kate Moss (or Nordstorm and here) || Harley Davidson tee: Vintage via Urban Outfitters (similar on eBay) || Squash Blossom Navajo Necklace: Vintage from Mum (similar on eBay) Distressed grey shorts: Pimkie || Boots: Ash

I'm sure everyone has a typical "signature look" which combo you wear very often and feel totally comfortable with. That is my signature look for the colder days. Everytime I go to town or when I'm on the road I grab one of my leather jackets, a band- or biker tee, my favorite jewelry, cut-offs + tights and my beloved biker boots by ASH (I wear them at least four times in the week haha). This leather jacket is probably the most expensive one I own, but as I already mentioned in one of my previous posts the Kate Moss collaboration with Topshop has totally got me and this babe was the second piece I simply needed to have. It's so edgy and it will last for a lifetime or at least I hope so. It's actually a re-creation of a "gig jacket" which was worn and loved by Kate herself during concerts she visited, so it is probably one of her favorites in her wardrobe, too. The jacket is perfect for colder summer days, because you don't sweat in it and its material is so soft. My harley davidson shirts are probably not new to you, I already wore many of them in my outfit posts, so you can imagine that  I actually collect them haha. The other day when I visited eBay I found some cool tees with amazing prints, too. You need a bit luck to find cool prints, it's always the same when it comes to vintage shopping (I'm still searching for a beautiful vintage tooled, dark tan 70s bag… grr I can't find the one I imagine at this time!). And yes, I'm wearing a lot of navajo jewelry, it's my favorite one. The squash blossom necklace belonged to my Mum, she bought it from some native americans when she was in the US - she know how much I love their artwork, so she gifted it to me.  One day when I manage to be in the US, I will definitely buy jewelry haha. The bracelets are vintage, too btw! I found this stunning silver cuff with hamsa hands, dome shaped details and camels when I went to the local flea market three weeks ago. Even if I usually come home without any shopping success, this time there was an awesome jewelry seller where I finally found it. So you really must have a bit of luck when searching for secondhand - or vintage pieces. :-)
