Leather Details

Seeing as how it is currently cold & rainy out, it seems fitting to start posting about fall fashion. After I did my outfit post on my top with leather sleeves, I took a browse online to find a variety of items with leather details in different ways. I’m still on the hunt though for a sweater with full faux leather sleeves but hopefully I won’t have to search for too long if this weather keeps up! Seems like I’m going to start bringing out my fall wardrobe sooner than later. Which, I can’t really complain about because as much as I love the sun & summertime, Fall fashion is by far my favourite season. I love cozy knits, boots, dresses + tights and especially the colour palette. Also the oncoming of Fall means 2 things: Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks (heaven in a cup – seriously) AND that my birthday month is getting closer!

I hope everyone enjoys this last weekend of Summer before back to school, which conveniently is a long weekend. Nicole and I will be off to Osoyoos for our friends wedding, checking out wineries & hopefully soaking up some sun. After working so hard at work these last two weeks, I’m definitely in need of this mini vacay!

(Faux) Leather Sleeves

DSC03797Early in the year I saw a top H&M that had short leather sleeves and I instantly fell in love! (Obviously I bought it – it even had a peplum!) Since then I’ve become slightly obsessed with any kind of leather details and have been lusting for a sweater with full (faux) leather sleeves. Now that we’re heading into fall I’m hoping I can find this garment I’ve been dreaming of. To add to the leather-detailed items in my closet, I recently purchased the t-shirt I’m wearing from Forever 21! The fact that it’s also in one of my favourite shades of green made it even more of a must have.

Also these booties are my absolute fav! I was on the hunt for a black pair for quite some time with no such luck when I happened to find a pair at Aldo. They were sold out in stores but were still available online so I hit “add to cart” and finalized my purchase. However, a few days later I got an email saying there was an error and they actually no longer had my size in stock so I was back at square one. Then while returning to my online perusing I discovered this pair from Call It Spring and knew immediately I had to have them; the sliver of gold on the heel made them that much better. I’ve worn them so much that they’ve gotten pretty beat up & it’s tempting to buy a replacement pair since they’re now on sale! And because I’m on my feet all day at work I don’t wear high heels so I like to wear booties as comfortable substitute.
