To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
So, maybe you have been thinking about a leather blazer lately. I know I have. But like every big investment one should always think twice. Or actually about seven times. Whenever I am about to buy something that isn’t socks I always try to imagine myself wearing the piece in seven or more outfits.
Why? We should all be buying less and choose better. And although that might sound very dull, giving yourself a challenge when actually purchasing something, makes it fun. Oh god, I feel like Monica Geller telling you all that rules helps control the fun, but it sort of does!!!
And speaking of Friends, if you need one more reason to actually get that leather blazer you’ve been eyeing on. Think to yourself, what would Ross Geller do?
This might actually be the most weather approved way of wearing a leather blazer. Layering it with the second best garment investment of this fall: The Vest. But we’ll get back to the vest later.
How extremely hot is Julia Roberts in this photo? Holy Mother of Leather Blazers.
I love Julia in her Notting Hill era. Must dive deeper into those years.

Hi it’s me! I love matching brown leather with black leather. Maybe because that was my ultimate hate combination as a teenager. I wouldn’t go out the door wearing brown shoes and black bag. Let’s just say I did not solve any world issues in high school.
Much different from what I am doing now. lol.
The pants tuck-in-boots trick were popular during fashion month and I will agree on it being a very good idea. Not only is it 80s chic but also very appropriate for Scandinavian autumn.
Another way of wearing the leather blazer.

Oh and wool trousers. Leather and wool may be the ultimate savior for this season. I promise it’s right next up to red wine.
Athleasure loves leather
Athleasure is not over! Do you hear me! Not! Over!
It’s way to comfortable (and cool) to be going anywhere.
Nobody can deny a good leather suit. So, thinking about a leather blazer? Already owner to a pair of rocking leather pants? You go my friend. You deserve a full leather suit.
So still having doubts? You do know it’s a black blazer, right? Treat it as one.
