Sequins and Sea Breezes: Neon and Leather

Neon and Leather

2/17/2014



Ok so this had to be the windiest day ever and of course I was in a skirt! I'm pretty sure people were stopping just to see if I was going to have a Marilyn Monroe moment (spoiler alert, I totally did). But it was still a gorgeous day out so I decided to take advantage and spend some time outside! I got this top from Tria a few weeks ago and they only had it in a medium but I really felt like this top NEEDED to be in my closet so I got it anyway. Truthfully I don't think it looks too big on, the only thing is the arm holes are a little big but I can live with that. I decided to pair it with a leather (is anyone surprised I paired something with leather??) skater skirt and a pair of simple strappy sandals to go for a classic yet trendy look. I love the neon/chartreuse color of this top and the beaded detail on the sleeves. It looks great dressed up or down which is my favorite aspect of any article of clothing! Not even going to lie, after doing these pictures I totally changed into jeans because it was just WAY too windy to be sporting a skirt for any length of time that day without flashing everyone around a bit too much skin! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
