summer leather

Blouse: Gap, thrifted from Crossroads (similar style here); Skirt: H&M (similar style here); Shoes: Camilla Skovgaard (similar style here); Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Bee Charming necklace, J. Crew bracelet, Michael Kors watch


There's something quite counterintuitive about wearing leather over the summer, luckily with an overabundance of silky, slightly sheer shirts (try saying that three times fast), the two seem to balance each other out nicely. And for this look in particular, I have my slight obsession with Marie Claire's Accessories Director Taylor Tomasi Hill to thank. Her ability to combine knock out accessories with subtle statement clothing pieces is perfection in my book and I like to think my new Camilla Skovgaard kicks are a fitting tribute. 

Who are some of your go-to style icons? I'm always on the hunt for more inspiration!

  1. Love this outfit! Everything about it! I always see leather skirts at Goodwill and just ignore them but I'm going to think twice next time.

  7. This is so cute! Sort of like a floral dress toughened up by a leather jacket (one of my fave combos) but a bit more fresh. I love all the chain details too.

  11. Love! I've never thought of a full leather skirt, but it does balance beautifully with the top (GAP makes nice tops like that??). Also--you must be raking in the dough lately! I'm soo digging all of your new designer shoes, haha. Mind if I live vicariously through you? :)
