I feel like I’ve been slacking on posting lately, but my reason is pretty justifiable. The sun is down by 5:30!!! It’s hard to get my frustration across in writing, but this time change has been a serious pain for my blog. I’m sure you can all relate, but I have yet to find a good solution. I took these in three different areas around my house because I was losing light by the second. To say I’m unhappy with how dark these are is an understatement. Right now, the only answer I can think of is taking multiple outfit pictures over the weekend. Rant over.
I sound like a broken record when I talk about my love for leather. If leather were a person, it would be my best friend. I mean, I have a “leather section” in my closet reserved for my pants, skirts, shorts, and leather trench. My leather tops would probably be in the same designated section if I weren’t a firm believer in keeping my tops and bottoms separated. Anyway, I’ve been on the hunt for a brown (faux) leather skirt for about three years now. It all started when I came across a three-tiered brown leather skirt online. I can’t really explain it, but it was gorgeous. Since I’m not really an impulsive shopper, I thought it over for a long time and eventually forget to go back and buy it. Since then, I’ve searched high and low. Luckily my search was over a few weeks ago when I found this MM Couture beauty at Dillard’s! It was simple and inexpensive without looking cheap. Of course, these two criteria help me justify any purchase.
Also, this Gap turtleneck is the comfiest. I grew up wearing turtlenecks, but ever since high school they were taking up some major space in my dresser. I ultimately gave them to Goodwill, and of course now regret it. I couldn’t resist the options at Gap. If you’re in the market for a new turtleneck, their’s are the best!
*Sizing notes: I sized up for the skirt. My regular size was a little too snug and very short. The next size up instantly made it work appropriate! For the turtleneck, I did the opposite and sized down. These are meant to have a loose fit, but my regular size was a little too relaxed!
