Summer Leather

Don't you just love how a leather piece can really add some edge to an outfit? I just purchased this faux leather jacket from H&M on Tuesday and I couldn't wait to show it off.

jacket: H&M
shirt: Nannette Leopore for JC Penny (now on clearance)
black jeans: old from Name Brand Clothing
shoes: Nike from Ross Dress for Less
Let me just say that I am so glad that I tried this jacket on in person because I almost bought it on-line and based off of the size guide I would have purchased a UK 16. However, when I saw the jacket in-person I instantly knew that the UK 16 would have been huge on me, and I got a UK 12 instead. Lesson learned: use the H&M website as a guideline for what I like, but wait to make purchases in- person.

Anyway, I've also been rocking my Topshop faux leather skirt this summer while the temperatures were hot (for UK standards) and I think it will be a great piece to transition into fall  paired with tights or leggings.

I recently wore my skirt in London, but nobody snapped any pictures of my outfit, so here's a mock up so you can get the idea.

  1. I love leather skirts like the one in your mock-up. You're totally right, it would be good for fall!
