Leather Leggings: Night

With the same leggings seen in the previous photos, I put a look together perfect for any night out!  The high-low, sheer-back shirt dresses the leggings up, and I added spiked heels and red lipstick to finalize the outfit!

Leather Leggings: Day

So, as my last post mentioned, I recently found a great pair of leggings with quilted leather detailing from Buffalo Exchange, and if you ask me, every girl should have a pair of leather leggings in her closet.  Since I find leather leggings to be such a fashion staple, I decided to wear them in two consecutive blog posts, showcasing one day outfit and one night outfit.  For my day outfit, I couldn't decide which of my favorite prints to wear; Leopard or Tribal.  This was a major dilemma for me, so I decided to combine the two.  With my leather leggings, I wore my vintage leopard top, and my amazing custom jean jacket from Rogue Wave Surf Shop in Charleston, SC.  Playing with prints is one of my favorite ways to experiment with fashion!

Deciding the location of the shoot was easy.  While trying out various running paths around Austin, I stumbled upon a sight that I found simply AMAZING.  I've already expressed my love for graffiti, so it should make sense as to why I fell in love with a hill consisting of layers upon layers of graffitied concrete.  Each slab of concrete displayed different artwork, and each told their own unique story.  After spending what seemed like hours exploring this marvelous hill, I knew it was the inspiration that I needed for my next blog post!  Enjoy!

Out With The Old, In With The New

Between my internship, job, and travels, I've been super busy this past month, and shamefully realized that I haven't been blogging!  Although I do blame my busy schedule for my lack of posts, I also blame my wardrobe, which seemed to be collecting dust.  With summer officially over (although it doesn't feel over here in Austin), I felt it was time to clean out my closet, and trade in my old clothes that I don't wear anymore for new fall goodies!  As hard as it is for me to part with any belongings in my closet, I knew the time had come.  I brought my oldies into Buffalo Exchange, and with the credit that I got for them, bought just what I needed to start blogging again; fashion inspiration!  I ended up finding two extreme tail-hemmed blouses (a trend that I love and find to be flattering on me), leather leggings, floral wide-legged pants, a bleached silk and leather blouse, and of course, a leopard top (leopard is essential for every season)!  Nothing inspires me like a good day of thrifting!!
