I’ve been wanting a faux leather jacket for a while now. But I worried about how it would actually fit in with my style and wardrobe, so I was a little resistant about putting up the money for one. So when Sheinside contacted me about reviewing a product from their site, I knew it was now or never to give the leather jacket thing a shot.
And you know what? I kind of love it. I tried to keep the rest of the outfit kind of soft and girly to compensate for the… toughness of the jacket. Tough biker chick isn’t really my style.
I don’t think.
But I do think I can easily work it into my wardrobe, and that it may easily become a staple.
P.S- I also thrifted a leather pencil skirt recently. I may need a little more time before I give that one a real try, though. Baby steps, people.

The last time I wore this skirt, I rocked it with a backwards cardi and pastels. Someone had commented that they loved that styling so much, they couldn’t imagine how else I could wear the skirt. So, in the words of Barney Stinson - challenge accepted.
To be honest- at first, I agreed. I did have a hard time styling this skirt, and I was pretty impressed with myself for that particular combination, so I was a little at a loss as to which direction to go next. But then I somehow put this combo together. And I thought it was pretty awesome. True story. (ok, I’ll stop with the Barney quotes now).

Apparently my warm weather dance didn’t work, because its cold again. Not that I didn’t expect this - it is still just March, after all. But it doesn’t mean I won’t complain about it. Booooooo to cold weather :(

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
Anyone have anything special planned tonight? Boo and I actually celebrated on Sunday, because it was also the day we got engaged, one year ago. And by celebrate, I mean I made Boo go see The Vow with me. Isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about - watching mush, girly movies? In my head it is :)
P.S - check out how everyone else is wearing there pink and red today for EBEW!

Some days I gravitate towards black jeans, leather boots, and bold silver jewelry, and then other days I feel like dressing as girly as possible. What can I say, I guess I’ll never grow out of my bows, ruffles, and florals.
