Leather & Pleating

Wearing – Top: Express | Skirt: BCBG | Boots: Sam Edelman {old; similar} | Necklace: Bauble Bar

The weather is consistently below 65 in Indiana and the days are getting chillier, which means I'm embracing the leather trend with open arms. Let's be honest here, you can't wear leather when it's 80 degrees out unless you're a rocker or a celebutant. I'm neither, so here it's officially leather weather in Indiana for Jaime.

I ran across this skirt at BCBG one day while shopping for dresses to wear at this year's Cancer Gala. Did I leave with a Gala dress? No. Did I leave with an absurdly overprices leather skirt? Yes. I'm like Carrie Bradshaw over here, what can I saw. I like my money where I can see it, hanging right in my closet. All jokes aside, this skirt goes great in my wardrobe. It provides the perfect amount of edge for my over-the-top girly clothing.

    1. Thank you, Lauren! I thought I'd lost this necklace going back and forth from my mom's house and mine, but I found it and couldn't be more happy with it still. It's such a great piece and adds instant pizzazz to any outfit.

    1. Thanks Darcy! Surprisingly enough they are ridiculously comfortable and the interior also has the softest leather. Leave it to Sam Edelman to make the most adorable, and comfortable, booties ever!

  6. That BaubleBar necklace is the jam, no? I love it! It's just SO, so heavy! Like going to the gym, but with statement necklaces. ;)
