Leather & Lace



Jacket (Target); Dress (Nicole for JCPenney); Skirt (Stolen from Mom);
Tights & Shoes (Kohls); Sunglasses (Charming Charlies); Necklace/Earrings (Limited)


While leather and lace certainly come from two different worlds, combining tough black leather with sweet floral lace is a look that works well.  Every girl should own something leather other than shoes... there's an easy confidence that comes with wearing something so fierce, tough, and fabulous.  Who knew women's empowerment was only a leather skirt away?

I feel like I've been seeing (and LOVING) leather and lace everywhere. It's SUCH a great pairing. If only I had some leather... Oh silly me for giving up shopping for lent.
