While everyone else is busy shoveling themselves out of several feet of snow, with exception of the occasional cold snap, it’s still pretty nice here. Hence my crop top and relatively light jacket. Speaking of this jacket, this was gifted to me all the way from Paris! Neat, huh?! I’ve been really considering moving to Paris for a little while once I graduate law school next year so it was almost like a sign when the Parisian boutique, INYÜ, contacted me and asked if they could send me a piece from their new collection.

I chose this varsity jacket because I loved the printed sleeves. Such a modern twist on the traditional African print! Want your own? Get it here! [Enter the code ‘HAPPY’ at checkout for 10% off.] I paired mine with a paisley print skater skirt, a simple crop top and, for a splash of color, a leopard print turban. Also, get into this snake print statement necklace! PATTERNS GALORE!

***No animals were harmed in the making of this outfit. Lol.
