Leather and Lace
Texture is a big part of my thought process when putting together an outfit. I really love to mix two (or more) contrasting textures to create a really dimensional look that intrigues the eye.
For todays looked, I mixed the edgy feel you get from black leather (or pleather, in this case) with the soft, feminine touch of the lace blouse.
I love the way opposites attract and give interest to an otherwise, pretty neutral outfit. Of course, I gave it a little pop of color with the burgundy tank underneath the blouse.
To accessorize this look, I went to my Noonday stash (an always favorite). I wanted a little pop of color and a little sheen.
This statement necklace is one of my favorites because of the vibrant jewel tones. Even better, it uses both silver and gold tones, so I can wear it with about anything!
The metallic earrings bring a bit of sheen to the outfit and pull out the tones of the necklace as well. I always love to pull my hair back a bit on one side when I’m wearing some spectacular earrings!
