Lace & Leather

Lately there's been a lot of encouragement to put your fears aside and break out your leather in this bright and sunshiny summer weather. However, when I think of 90 degree heat and near 
full humidity nothing sounds less appealing than having leather on my skin, 
regardless of how buttery smooth it may be! 
That being said, as of late, for some reason {and it may be just a matter of placement in my closet} 
my leather skirt has been calling to me. 
So, I worked up the courage 
{well, not really because I saw that the temperature was only going to be in the mid 70's} 
and tossed on my leather skirt - HOOWAH!
Now, what to pair with this unconventional summer piece...? 
How about a light, loose, delicate lace top?! Bingo! 
Verdict on summer leather? I say, for crisp cool evenings and days when the heat has mellowed and the breeze is light, leather is a divine choice!

  3. Pretty impressed with what J. Crew has been doing in the last few years. Love this look too but i still think when it's NYC humidity that thing will get HOT.

  4. Great combo! I agree, Especially if its not zoo hot out because then you would run the case of having uncomfortably sweaty body parts. awkward.
