I’ve always been lucky to have a mom who has an amazing fashion sense. I think that’s where I developed my love and appreciation for clothes. Luckily, she’s also good at finding things she’ll know I’ll love. We usually go shopping together, but there are times when we have conflicting schedules. It’s always a pleasant surprise when she tells me she bought something for me that she can’t wait to show me. Her track record of buying things that fit me perfectly is flawless. I think I’ve only had to exchange or return things a few times over the years.
She called me a few months ago after a trip to Kenwood, informing me she scored a major deal on a leather dress. If you’ve followed me from the beginning, you know I’m a girl who loves her (faux) leather. Not surprisingly, the dress fit like a glove, and it’s been the perfect solution for getting away with summer leather. Opting for a light-colored leather is ideal for the summer months. Unless it’s 60 degrees or below, I like to save the black leather for fall and winter. At this point in the summer, it’s kind of tempting to start thinking forward to fall, but I’m trying to fit in all my summer outfits while I still can.
