two stories about leather.

 dress: Belk (birthday gift from mom!) / leather jacket: c/o Oasap
tights: c/o We Love Colors / shoes: c/o Blowfish Shoes

the first story takes place in a Forever 21 dressing room last week during my visit in GA. i have been admiring the liquid leggings look (which are basically thin faux leather leggings). you know the whole big oversized sweater with ankle boots and those sleek, shiny leggings? yup, that one. so i told myself the next time i came across a pair at a store i would try them on. they looked comfy yet still oh so chic. sure enough, i found a burgundy and a black pair at a Forever 21 and to save you from absolute disgust, i looked back at my reflection rocking those leggings. and yup, i might have thrown up in my mouth. twice actually. first with the burgundy, then a second time with the black pair. not for me and my bootaaaaay.

second story. i fell in love with this motorcycle jacket, and if it wasn't for the 80 degree weather, i would never have taken it off since it's arrival in the mail. thankfully autumn is sloooooooooowly making it's appearance to our state and i was able to rock the jacket earlier this morning when there was a chill in the air. everything about it is perfect - the feel of the (fake) leather, the pockets, the collar, and the fit - and me and my bootay have agreed that it is a much preferable look. 

but hey, that's just our opinion.

much love.
{happy monday, friend.}
