Sequins and Sea Breezes: A Touch of Leather

A Touch of Leather

11/19/2014

 
First off, I just want to say thank you guys SO much for the love yesterday! Ya'll sure do know how to make a girl feel special! You lovely ladies are seriously so awesome! I love you all so much! :)
 
Ok so now for a little confession, I have a slight love affair with little touches of leather. Leather skirts, leather sleeves, and especially leather leggings. I feel like a touch of leather can make an outfit edgy and sexy but not too "biker chick", which is a look I'm definitely never going for. For some reason I'm not really the biggest fan of leather pants but I love a good pair of leather leggings, especially in the fall!



I love pairing leather leggings with a good oversized sweater. Ok, you got me. I love pairing almost anything with a good oversized sweater in fall. The thing I love most about this particular sweater is that it's completely Florida fall appropriate with the shoulder cutouts. I wore this outfit out for drinks with Amanda and it was warmer (but windy) when it was light out but got chilly as soon as the sun went down so this sweater was perfect! Since I went with the basic black and white look, I decided to spice it up a bit with a fun bold, dark lip and some basic gold jewelry. Nothing too crazy or over the top but perfect for drinks out!

  3. Those cut-outs definitely make it the perfect Florida sweater, and a little leather always adds an extra touch of chicness!

  4. Loving this whole outfit especially the cut-outs! I also love leather leggings, but not regular leather pants. Hoping to whip out my leather leggings this weekend! Have you found a great leather skirt yet (preferably "pleather")? I tried a few on at F21 and they were not flattering at all :-P
