Who Says We Can't Wear Leather In The Summer?

Anyone who knows my style well will tell you that I incorporate leather into my outfits 70% of the time. Not head to toe in some gothic way, just a piece here and there to keep my ensembles a tad off kilter. I would say overall that my style esthetic is experimental, playful, unpredictable, and a bit punk/rockish. For instance, I would wear a crisp white baby doll dress from the 60's with knee highs paired with a leather jacket and black combat boots. When I get dressed I like to mix a bit of everything. If people crane their necks and give me a look of, "Woah, what was that girl wearing?", then I think I've had a successful day. All you fashionistas know exactly what I am talking about and it's not from an arrogant place. Our body is our canvas! We basically paint with our clothes! Each day is a different mood, hence each day we wear different outfits! The whole point of fashion is to express ourselves, make an impact, and share our passion through our personal style. Why not go all out? Well, I have decided not to hang up my leather pieces this summer! Instead, I have gathered some gorgeous leather garments below that we can wear through the sweltering days and still look amazing! Let me know which one is your favorite because I am having the hardest time choosing just one!

Floral Leatherette Dress, $64. Speechless. Who would think to trim the top of this darling floral maxi in leather? Genius! I am obsessed and can we talk about the price? This is a no brainer.
Horace Leather Hotpants, $93. For those of you that have been dying for a pair of leather shorts but can't find em' for less than $800 bucks. Done and done! These are the ones! I am ordering these right now!
 Joseph Leather Trimmed Jersey Tank, $245. Such a sweet girly top with a little bit of leather trim to edge it up. A perfect basic!
 Twist & Tango Leather Bell Skirt, $181. I love the color and construction of this skirt and it is completely year round. I would wear it with knee highs or tights with boots in the fall and winter months. 
 Push Button Red Leather Pants, $310. You gotta be reeeeeally daring to wear these hot red babies. I kind of seriously need them in my life.
Horace Leather Black Vest, $249. Horace honestly slays me. I collect his pieces. I live for them.
I CANNOT deal with the back of this little number.
Improvd Layna Leather Jacket, $548. For those chilly nights when you need a killer jacket to throw over a cute little sundress. Done.

  6. I love the leather shorts and the leather jacket, but what I think is really unique is the leather trim and accents on the maxi and tank. It's so simple, but I feel like it hasn't really be done before. Great finds!

  49. First off I would like to say fantastic blog!

    I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I've had
    difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

  57. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress
