Thinking outside of my style comfort box

leather and sheer

      Maybe it's the extreme heat or all the flouncy skirts I've been wearing so far this summer, but for some reason I'm craving neutrals, blacks, leather and sheer. I've been thinking about my wardrobe and I've found myself craving slightly edgier pieces.  This sort of look is a little outside what I usually go for, as there is no color and lots of black, but I kind of love that. I'm having visions of neutral sheer blouses with skinny black pants and leather, things I wouldn't have pick previously. These visions aren't exactly season appropriate, it seems a bit looney to be thinking of leather in the recent heat wave we've been having, but I can't help when inspiration hits. Plus, a lot of these looks could work for summer given many of the tops are sheer or light weight. I'm trying to save some money so these things will have to wait for a little while, which is fine since they're really mostly fall/winter appropriate. But when labor day sales hit, watch out!


  1. I am such a sucker for leather skirts! I just thrifted two within the past month, and I can't wait to wear them for the fall. And yes, I will show the final prints when they arrive! Hopefully soon.

    1. cool. I need some leather skirts in my life, but I've banned myself from thrifting/shopping for the month. can't wait to see the prints and the skirts!
