Weekender: A Little Bit of Leather

Despite my rather belated Weekender post, I just couldn’t let the day slip by without acknowledging the first Sunday of fall. (Forgive my absence in the blogosphere these past few days; I was back at my alma mater for my first football game as an alum.) While my weekend style included layers of Irish gear, forest green colored denim, and two tone riding boots, I offer you an alternative look that combines a feminine blouse with edgy leather-adorned leggings. Consider taking this look to the office with a pair of flats and slipping into leather booties for happy hour once 5 o’clock rolls around.

Enjoy what’s left of your weekend!

Work Week Wardrobe: Wimbledon-Inspired White.


Celebrate a refreshed post-holiday you with an equally vibrant outfit to match. This week’s source of inspiration comes from the Wimbledon finals – where athleticism comes decked out in shades of white. Get the look by mixing classic white pieces with other neutral hues like gray, black, navy, or nude. My personal favorite? Gray stripes, as pictured in the skirt above. The feminine-meets-polished look is the perfect way to usher yourself into a productive week ahead.
