I am breaking all the rules.

The old Zara pullover and GAP skimmer jeans are both cool blue greys. But the only boots I wanted to wear today are warm taupe grey. Plus, with the straps and buckles, they have a lot going on for moi. Risky combination. I am hoping that adding the mixed grey scarf (cool and warmer) helps to unify it all.

Also, this is the second outing of the gorgeous blush jacket that I now own, courtesy of Dee.

The jacket is delicious. Lovely soft leather, and the fit is perfect. Believe it or not, this is my first "moto" anything. LOVE!! (And thank you Dee for generously offering it on Style Exchange).

Having said that, blush isn't my best colour. This one is quite a cool pink blush so it is better for me than some others. Yet it's still rather pastel for my complexion. I'm wondering if it would work better with grey hair (when that happens) or with darker hair -- what do you think? (My hair is bleached unusually light right now due to some beach days in August.)

I also find the blush a bit difficult to style. What can I wear with blush besides black (probably too harsh a combination for me)? Burgundy or dark red, I know -- but believe it or not, I don't have any burgundy tops or bottoms!!

Styling ideas for blush welcome.

Also, can leather be dyed successfully? I absolutely love the fit and style of this jacket but wonder if it would get more wear for me in a different colour. Danier might do it for me, since this is one of their own jackets.

On the other hand, as Angie wisely says in the blog today, not everything has to be a workhorse. I guess the issue is this: now that I finally have a moto, I know a moto in a neutral like navy would be a total workhorse for me. So I am wondering if I'm wasting closet space. Mind you, the price was right, thanks to Style Exchange, so it's not like it took a huge chunk of my budget.

And thank you!
