Chokers are back in the mix

The trend is tying one on. Remember when tying a sweater or jacket around your waist was cool, then it wasn't and not it is again? It's funny because I don't do it much at all yet I like the look of it. I felt pretty plain when I threw on my black tee dress so I thought it would be a great time to join in... with a bit of struggle I will admit but I'll eventually figure it out. That 'effortless' styling we see all over Instagram isn't always as effortless as it looks! So here I step outside in a fresh look that's new to me and I'm not even kidding you I spotted 5-6 girls wearing basically the exact same outfit, I couldn't help but to laugh. I guess I've been trend struck but not quite the trend setter with this one. Anyway I felt this casual look needed a backpack and let me just tell you how much I love it. Brave Leather's Jin Leather Drawstring Backpack is worn by me on the regular. For starters it's such a simple, sleep black leather back it works with everything and secondly you hold carry this bag in a bunch of ways. Ya I'm into worn as a backpack but sometimes it's easier to sling over one shoulder to simply hold in one hand. Whatever the way this bag adds some serious swag to your look. And while we are on the topic of Brave, they just dropped a choker collection and the Fantiv Leather Choker I'm wearing with this outfit is siiiiiiiiiick. I've actually retired the choker for the past several months because I felt they got seriously overplayed but then I got this one and their Huyana Leather Choker and now I'm back on the bandwagon.
