Black For Fall & Summer

black-leather-skirt

Although fall has already arrived, I still can’t help but to slowly transition out of the summer phase. The weather has not been much of a help either, and yet I usually take for granted the summer nights and days. While I already want to get fall started, I know ill have those mixed feelings of being stuck between hot and cold. So….here is my mixture combined into one. And of course you can never go wrong with black right?

A touch of oxfords and scarfs make the final result look great for both summer and fall.

A Moment Of Fashion Silence

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

So much has been going on these past couple of days. With Mexico being hit with a horrible earthquake on Tuesday, I can not help but to feel deeply and immensely sad. Not because my family is from there but because I feel for those who have lost everything, lost their families, lost their loved ones, be it animals, neighbors, colleagues, etc. No one was ready for this tragedy, and actually no one ever is.

In these moments all I can think of is of the ways I can help. Donating and praying is what everyone needs at this moment, even if its a little bit. Fashion can wait. Its what you feel in your heart that matters the most. Sure the world and life goes on, but we can not ignore those who are in need. For now, positive thoughts and prayers are what I will be doing. With a smile on my face because I know Mexico will get back up, not forgetting, but pushing forward. Fashion goes on no matter what, but Im deciding to pause and be silent. The well being of others is far more important.

I don’t know about you but I just love fringe and leather. At times I find myself reaching for mostly fringe, but leather has lately been on my mind. Even though the thought of leather sounds a bit horrifying in summer ( sweat comes to mind, ew) I can’t help but think of the hundred possible ways I can style a leather skirt.

Of course only leather skirts are acceptable in summer, I’m already thinking ahead for fall, but I’ll have to wait for now, but there is nothing more inspirational than fringe and leather being combined together! Yes, its like the Big Bang but in this case, the Fringe Leather Bang ;D (cheesy right! lol) Its a great mixture showing the classy and edginess of both styles in one. I have no idea what it is, but I will keep on experimenting with leather the rest of this year lol.

Now what do you guys think of this combo? Would you go for a leather skirt in summer?

How To Wear A Leather Skirt

With the weekend already approaching, I am noticing how the weather is slowly climbing up the 70’s (I need 80’s! tho) and although it may not be too cold at the time, there is always a way for leather skirts to make their way in.

I have seen a bunch (more like tons) of inspirational pictures of fashion bloggers dressing in leather skirts all over instagram and pinterest.  They wear them with  different types of combinations that make them look so effortless and chic at the same time. Although I love dressing up, I have to be realistic about how being a mom makes a huge difference in my day to day wear. Nevertheless, I think doubling leather in your outfit makes the outcome look so pulled together and casual, and when sandals are added it takes the look to a whole new level.
