Leather and Lace

Leather and Lace - Life in the Sunshine

Leather, in an outfit.. Immediate image in my head; Biker Chick. I won’t lie, that is the first thing that I obviously think about when leather is used to describe an outfit. With my girlie style though, that definitely won’t be the case with this week’s Leather and Lace theme for The Creative Closet. 

Leather and Lace - Life in the Sunshine

Last year, I will admit, I found some adorable ideas that included Leather Leggings and Flannel Button-ups for the fall time that I just absolutely loved. But, I never got around to actually buying myself a pair of leather leggings/pants. So, when Jana and Maegan introduced this week’s theme of Leather and Lace, I knew it would be the perfect time to pick me up a pair. I searched all over the internet for the perfect pair; asked a bunch of my friends, searched all over my hometown, and finally came across a pair that I was without a doubt in love with. I am so horribly picky when it comes to pants/bottoms, it is kind of ridiculous honestly. I guess that is what I get for working at Buckle for 18 months, eh whatevss.. But, these leather jeggings were going to be perfect.

I went back to my Pinterest Style Board in search of some fun and girlie outfits. I decided that I wanted to go for something a little more on the dressy side. My goal was to town down the edginess of the Leather by pairing it delicateness of the Lace. I decided to pick a color scheme to work with, make it a little easier to find the perfect accessories and finishing touches to this outfit. Because of course, any perfect put together outfit has to have some sort of color scheme to it.

I am without a doubt in my mind, in love with this outfit. The leather jeggings are so comfortable and the top is so cute, comfy, and classic. I decided to pair it with a red bag for a pop of color and leopard shoes for a little pizzazz and fun! Plus, leopard is considered neutral, right? Anyways, I hoped you enjoyed this week’s collaboration with The Creative Closet.
