If you know me, you know I loveee romcoms and when I found this vintage jacket in my mom’s closet I knew it would be perfect to recreate one of my favorite looks, Julia Roberts in Notting Hill. It is my dream to one day live in London so any romcom that includes charming British men, quaint bookstores and an element of the film industry, I am all about! Not to mention the 90s was such a great time for women’s fashion. For this look I used this image as inspiration:

Luckily my mom had the perfect leather jacket that was my grandmother’s in the 90s! I combined that with the beret and sunglasses to complete the look! We drove over to Ye Olde Kings Head, which is a British restaurant in Santa Monica to really make it feel authentic.
I had so much fun recreating this look and plan to do many more! What’s your favorite rom com look?
