I strive to find balance when it comes to fashion. I like feminine, romantic, even girly things, but I also like things that have an edge. For example, on my birthday I accessorized a twirly birthday dress with a studded headbands and added a leather jacket to the mix.
So, when I heard the words "peplum" and "leather" in the same product description, my heart skipped a beat. A classically feminine shape constructed in a tough-girl material? Sign me up!
For its inaugural wear, I paired the sure-too-be-a-go-to-favorite top with my mint jeans (because color stories inspired by Andes Mints are always a good idea), and added a Peter-Pan-collar necklace to bring a bit of demure charm to the look.
Of course, I'm already thinking up ways to transition this top into fall. What about layering a leather jacket over it for a bold leather-on-leather look? Or, how about layering it over a black cashmere sweater? I love the idea of a leather shell with cashmere sleeves?
The possibilities are endless.
