Good morning, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The one thing I have learned very quickly since moving to California is that no matter how warm it is during the day, once the sun goes down, the temperature almost certainly drops, so a jacket is a must. Normally, for casual looks I just throw on a leather jacket or a blazer, but dressier looks tend to be a bit more problematic. Though I like combining dressy pieces with leather jackets, sometimes I feel the impact of the piece gets lost covered up with something on top, which is perhaps why I am so obsessed with the set I'm wearing in today's post.

Of course these pieces could be worn separately, but I absolutely love the impact they create paired together, not to mention the jacket definitely kept me warm on a chilly Pasadena night! 

Though I think the black, white and red print would look great with a variety of colors, today I wanted to make the gorgeous abstract print the focal point of the look. So, I paired it with a black top and black accessories, adding just a bit of drama via black and white striped sunnies.
