Leather Weather

It's leather weather! (Or faux leather weather for that matter.) In the Spring we all break out our favorite denim jackets to layer up with for the cool night temps. This time of year, most tend to grab for our leather for layering. As all things I love, I have multiples. I own a faux leather jacket in black, black with a hood, brown, & oxblood. A girl from the Midwest can never have too many jackets after all! 

I loved pairing this LWD with my faux leather jacket and these amazing gray heels. I decided to add this great polka dot scarf to give it more of a Parisian vibe. What's not to love about street style in Paris? In the end, I grabbed an oversize bag, tortoise sunglasses, and put on a bright pink lip. This outfit was so fun to wear!

Remix: Bomber Jacket

I have been wearing this bomber jacket for the past three years now. I have to say, I still love it as much as the day I bought it (although I did believe it was a few years ahead of it's time). Whether I wear it over a more dressed up outfit, or pair it over skinny jeans and a tank, this jacket can easily be taken from day to night. Here are three of my favorite ways I have worn this beauty from Golden Tote so far. 


Are you a fan of bomber jackets? Which pairing from above is your favorite? I think my favorite would have to be the turtleneck pairing. ;)

Flare Overalls

I have a mild obsession with overalls in general. It may stem from my childhood when I loved and wore them regularly, but I think it also has something to do with how cute and cozy they are as well. I currently own one pair of boyfriend style, one pair in black, these amazing flared ones, and a cute shorts pair too! See, mild obsession. ;) 

I love pairing this leopard crop top with overalls because it is fitted and tucks right into them. In fact, I think I have worn this very top with all three of my overall styles. When something works, I just go with it. To finish off this style I added my favorite camel wool trench, a great big emerald bag, and maroon sunglasses. In the end I added gold jewelry and felt very comfortable and put together at the same time (my favorite combo!).

Timeless Fall Fashion

 photo bootie_zpsxtxjxq8k.jpg  photo bootie-7_zpsgi0ek9dc.jpg  photo bootie-12_zpsf58iqpq2.jpg

 If I could freeze any season it would have to be this one. The air is crisp, but not cold, the sun still shines daily giving us many coat free hours (sometimes full days), and the colors are to die for. Oh how I love the colors of Fall! The only trees I love as much as these gorgeous Fall ones are palm trees. I guess it good to find happiness in the little things around your home, we can't all travel (or live by) palm trees. ;)

When it comes to Fall fashion, nothing is as timeless or classic as a tunic, skinny jeans, boots, and a trench coat. This outfit combination can be worn to literally any occasion and it will never go out of style! I love mixing up the colors, inspired by the leafs of course, like these red boots with the green bag. I feel like I'm styling the colors of Fall all in one outfit...and I am not mad about it!

Remix: Leopard Blouse

I have owned this leopard blouse, that I purchased at Piperlime, since 2012. It is just one of those pieces that you can mix and match with so many different outfits and the best part, it continues to be on trend year after year. Which is why this blouse made the cut for this week's remix! Weather I pair it by itself or layer it over a tee or dress, my leopard blouse really does take on a different look each time. Here are my four favorite ways I have styled it in the past few years. 

Do you have a animal print blouse that you can't get enough of? Which of the above pairings is your favorite?

Leather & Lace

 photo leather and lace_zpsul3hxpsg.jpg  photo leather and lace-2_zpsni06nacd.jpg

Leather and lace is one of those masculine paired with feminine combinations that I just can't get enough of. There is something so chic about mixing these two textiles together (or at least I think so!). I feel like that goes for every girly piece in your wardrobe. They would pair excellently with something edgy. I think I may need to style my tulle skirt with a biker jacket next...but I digress. 

On a recent trip to San Diego, my husband surprised me with reservations to Nobu. As a self proclaimed sushi addict, eating here while on the west coast just made sense. To say this was the best sushi & oysters would be an understatement. They were phenomenal! Now I fear I will no longer like my local have ruined me Nobu! ;)

Sweater Weather

It is one of my favorite times of year, cooler but not cold and beautiful Fall colors all around. Also known as sweater weather! This sweater jacket is giving me life. I have only had it for two weeks and have worn it at least 6 times so far. I mean, it pairs with literally anything and doubles as a jacket or a cozy sweater to wear around the house. Why not be stylish and warm all at the same time? 

On this day, I wore my sweater as more of a jacket and paired it over a faux leather skirt and a ribbed sweater. By added blue tassel ankle boots, gold jewelry, an emerald colored bag, and oxblood colored sunglasses, my outfit felt chic yet still cozy. I truly love that combo above all other lately. You should not have to be one or the other in my opinion.
