I never really plan my outfits in advance (which is maybe why I’m perpetually running late), but I like to start my day off feeling like a blank canvas.  Some days — like today — my outfit ideas start off soft and feminine and end up more forward and fierce.  Case in point: a fun floral dress that was completely transformed by a little leather and a pop of neon.  Take a little time to experiment with your wardrobe and I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised with all the possibilities!

in a mood.

NYC’s skies have been covered in clouds for the past few days.  On top of that, the days are getting shorter as the sun becomes slow to rise and quick to set.  Moody weather calls for a moody outfit so I’m capping off the week with the color of the season paired with leather and leopard.  Have a fantastic weekend!

leather + leopard.

If there’s anything I love incorporating into my life, it’s a little leather and leopard (and alliteration).  The combo might sound a little scandalous, but when paired with a sweet flouncy skirt and minimal accessories, it comes out perfectly balanced.
