Suede, meet Leather. Leather, this is Suede.

Suede, meet Leather. Leather, this is Suede.

A bit of an overload of pictures this time huh?  Sorry, but not really sorry.  Sometimes outfits just photograph so well it’s hard for me to choose so instead of wasting my time deciding I just throw them all up… You mad? Didn’t think so.  I know you all just L-O-V-E to see half a million pictures of my bright shiny face!  And on to the clothes!  Did you think I was joking when I said that a black leather skirt is a wardrobe staple?  Besides this one and the little mini I posted a while ago, I also own a vintage black leather pencil skirt.  You seriously can’t go wrong with black leather skirts, throw it on and GET OUT THE HOUSE!  I’m actually really excited to style this one, from Oasis, with an oversized sweater.  The mix of leather and suede are all-too-perfect for fall!   Which reminds me… Guess what!?!  I’m cold right now!  It’s cold outside! In LA!  It’s cold!  Well, it’s “cold”.  It’s like… I don’t know… 64 degrees, which trust me, is FREEZING compared to the 90 degrees it’s been here for the last few months.  Perfect timing to bust out the leather skirts and oversized sweaters, no?

Layers + Leather Shoppers + Pulpits

Layers + Leather Shoppers + Pulpits

Normally I don’t go for dark backgrounds, but this one seemed to fit the outfit so well.  Maybe it’s because of the neon in the shirt, or maybe it’s just because I’m crazy, but I’m liking it!  Don’t worry, I’m not going to go on an all black backgrounds kick, you’ll still get your usual dosage of all-too-much-color-in-one-picture walls.  It’s always good to change it up a little though right?  Of course I’m right!   Want to know what else I’m right about? Layers.  I’ve been doing layers a lot more this spring, as seen here and here, and it’s adding an entirely new dimension to my wardrobe.  It’s fun to play with not only the colors of layers, but also the shapes.  Larger boxy pieces over more form fitting (an obvious choice), but there are even some glorious layered outfits to be made that are tight over loose!  WHAT? Tight over loose?  That doesn’t make any sense!  You’re imagining the awkwardness of the bunched up bottom layer under a small top layer right?  Well, sometimes it works!  Take the cream colored top above that fits a little more snug along the top half of the piece, but has an open back.  This is the perfect piece to throw something loose under!  Just wait, I’ll show you and prove wrong the little voice in your head that’s huffing and puffing over the mere thought of this combo.   For now though my friends,  you have plenty of springtime shape layering to feast your eyes on in this and the other layerful (awesome new word), posts of late.  The outfit...
Think Pink

Think Pink

Think pink here people.  It will make everything better, and that’s saying a lot as almost nothing can make anyone feel better about the fact that it’s Monday.  Wearing an outfit like the one above could possibly be of assistance too.  What other words of wisdom do I have to get you through your Monday blues?  Hm… the only other thing I can think of that makes Monday (or any day) any better is shopping.  Maybe hop on over to Hare + Hart to buy this bucket bag?  It begs you to, in all of it’s bucket-y, two-toned goodness.  Enough?  Okay good, cause I’m tapped out.  Sweater: Zara // Shorts & Shoes: Urban Outfitters // Bucket Bag: Hare + Hart Photography by Sylvia...
Not being serious about anything.

Not being serious about anything.

This could very possibly serve as a very good option for a not so red and pink, but still red and pink Valentine’s Day outfit.  If you add in extra colors it helps take the outfit out of the cheesy realm and into the “it’s just another day but also it’s a holiday” realm.  Got it?  I think adding blue into the mix is a really good option to mix it up.  Pair your boyfriend’s, brother’s, or dad’s (or you can just get your own, the one I am wearing above is killer and super soft), old button up with a pink skirt or even with denim and throw in a red purse.  The outfit will let people know you are acknowledging it is a holiday, but you aren’t feeling too serious about it.  Besides, who wants to be serious about anything?  Not me.  So do your thing, spice it up, and don’t forget to send me some candy hearts.
