Double Leather

I used to associate leather with all seasons except for summer. But this leather skirt and this peplum shirt with the leather bottom are some of my favorites, so I figured... heck with what I used to think, I'm gonna wear these together!

{Peplum Top: Nordstrom (old), Skirt: Forever 21 (old), Shoes: Cole Haan, Necklace: Rire Boutique, Bracelets: David Yurman, BaubleBar (similar)}

I never used to like wearing leather. I thought it wasn't me. I decided I had to step out of my comfort zone and I picked up this faux leather skirt from F21 earlier this year. I'm so glad I did because I just love it. I can't believe I had been giving leather the cold shoulder for so long!

As I've mentioned earlier, I can hardly believe it's already August. I definitely want to savor my summer and enjoy as much as I can so I'm heading off on vacation to Cape Cod for a week with my family. I've asked some really wonderful ladies to fill in for me while I'm gone, so be sure to stop by and show these ladies some love next week. I promise you will love them all as much as I do! See you all soon!

Oh I love this peplum and skater skirts are right up my alley. You look so feminine and chic. I don't do leather for summer either but we can get away with a skater skirt :)

I love this look! That skirt is so cute. And paired with the peplum, this outfit is perfect! I have always imagined a leather skirt would be hard to pull off, too, but you do it so well!

Alyssa said...

I'm so glad you paired these two together–it's the perfect combo! I have a brown leather skirt (finally!), but I want to snag a black one for fall too!

Cassandra Too said...

The top and the skirt go so well together. I think the peplum top mad the whole outfit so much cuter! :D

Well, now I want a leather skirt! I am with you, it's always been something that I've liked, but I never thought it was my style. But seeing you wearing one is making me rethink that! I love that you paired leather with leather too, this peplum top is fantastic.

Now that you mention it, I don't associate leather with summer either. I think of it as a fall thing. But you've proven it works, that's a nice, summery looking outfit. Is it comfortable?

The only leather I've ever owned was a coat...for about 20 minutes. :)

Definitely cute. I have the same phobia of leather, perhaps that stigma should change. I did however just buy a pink leather jacket. Hoping it fits after this baby comes out! Have fun in Cape Cod, get some sun and relax. I want to be there with you!
