LEATHER X LEATHER

LEATHER X LEATHER

The texture and luster of leather, or faux leather, as many of us choose to adorn, is gorgeous in and of itself. But, when you start paring leather look items together, the results are out of this world.

I am OBSESSED with the leather on leather trend we’ve been seeing this A/W season. It looks sexy, chic, and effortless…all at the same damn time. Don’t be surprised if you see me in the streets frequently wearing these items. I can already predict that these will be staple pieces of clothing for me during the next few months. I can’t wait to play around more with this trend!

Trend I Love: Organza

Fashion trends tend to recycle themselves again & again. If you are anything like me, you might find yourself digging in your parents closet for items that have managed to become “on trend” yet again. This season, we are seeing A TON of organza/mesh pieces and I am not mad at it at all. It’s currently my favorite trend to date. I love how even the most delicate addition of organza can transform an entire piece!

 

Check out a few ways I like to play with this trend!

1. PLAY PEEK – A- BOO

I love throwing on a mesh/organza piece over something body con or extremely fitted. It has a cool peek-a-boo effect that gives your outift a bit of sex appeal while still covering up a bit.

2. MAKE IT THE FOCUS.

Throwing on an organza top over a pair of jeans, or cargo pants can take what would normally be a casual outfit to a new level.

3. PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL

Whew, I loveee an organza detail. ZARA has been doing these amazing organza puffy sleves this season and I honestly can’t get enough. They just add a super fun, flirty element that I am completely obssessed with!

Color Story: Camel + Denim

Color Story: Camel + Denim

Pairing camel tones with a good denim piece is my favorite way to transition into fall. As a categorical minamalist, I love finding color stories that I just know will look good together. 

One can always go for the classic trench and skinny jean but I like to switch it up and find pieces that create unique silhouettes that are interesting and unexpected.

This cropped denim jacket and pair of paper bag cargo pants are two of my favorite items in my closet right now.

Denim holds a special place in my heart and I love this cropped take on the classic denim jacket by Zara. I usually throw it over body con dresses and skirts or wear it off the shoulder with a cute pair of pants, as seen here.

I especially love the fit of these cargo pants. The way they cinch the waist *and* the ankles will have you lookin right and tight at all times.

There’s something kinda vintage about a denim dress so whenever I see one, I snatch it up. I spotted this one on ASOS.com and couldn’t resist.

Pairing it with this old Topshop camel coat with pointed white slingbacks from Zara seemed only natural.

The dress also has a low back detail (not shown) that really sealed the deal for me. The attached belt also helps give the denim some shape.

These days, I regret to admit, I can’t be bothered to get super dolled up just to go to the mall or make a Target run, like I used to.

If you see me in the streets, there is a good chance I have on a full beat or a bare face (no in between) and an outfit that looks somethin like this….

(Sidenote, I have a serious case of RBF, so if you DO happen to see me, please say hi! I promise I don’t bite. =] )
