Pleather and Plaid

Plaid Shirt Around the Waist

As spring keeps arriving at a rapid pace, I am slightly having a panic attack giving up some of my favorite leather items. My new patent leather jacket, the no fail “goes with everything” leather leggings I live in throughout the cold months, and my thigh high boots.

Luckily, tucked back in the depths of my closet I found this pleather gem. This pleather (some prefer to use the term faux) skater skirt gives me hope of leather even in the warm month and makes me feel ok about the two leather pencil skirts I also got from Zara that I cannot wait to wear.

I also have had a strange obsession with pairing skirts with big chunky ankle boots. I have been so inspired by looks on my pinterest page alas when summer hits my ankle boots will probably find their way to the back of the closet where I found my skirt…

Spring Uniform

Blue Blazer

As you have probably noticed there has been slight repetition in my closet. This Spring I have realized I have quite the go-to look that is so universal it goes with multitudes of pairings in my wardrobe. My spring wardrobe has consisted of a variety of blazers and shorts. Something so effortless yet completely simple and chic. You can dress it up or down but this Spring uniform pairing really is a no brainer. Worn in my post on Monday with windowpane shorts and a graphic tee, I displayed a more going out pairing. Today I wanted to bring a more laid back way to wear this simple staple.

Will you try out this pairing for the upcoming season, and how will you wear it?

Happy Monday everyone! I am feeling unusually motivated with the new week ahead. Lately, I have been more of a Debby downer but someone lit a fire from under me this weekend and I am starting to feel much more like my determined self.

I have a feeling Spring has had a little something to do with it and I am loving the 70 degree weather that made its way into the valley. It was also a great time to bust out my new Radarte shirt and some fun windowpane printed shorts I picked up a few weeks back.

Graphic tees have come back with a vengeance with all sorts of unique and quirky sayings. I didn’t really find anything that caught my eye until Rodarte launched their ‘Radarte’ line of shirts and I just couldn’t resist. I didn’t see myself getting sick of it either which is why I finally cracked and purchased it. I may or may not have also convinced my sister to pick up the grey Radarte shirt as well… (I am a terrible influence). Oh well, the more the merrier!
