Tough but Sweet

 I hope your week has gotten off to a good start! I had a good girls catch-up last night and it's always so nice to spend time with like-minded people that are striving for similar things in life. I get so much inspiration and motivation after these types of nights and always come out of it with a million ideas.

There is so much that I want to do with this blog and right now it's been a lot of self-education and trying to figure out how to go about everything. I've never been a computer genius, but I'm trying to learn the things that can help me out and hopefully improve this space.

But the most important part is that I bring you lots of new outfit ideas and inspirations! Yesterday was all about comfort, so today we are going to go for the exact opposite with a beautiful lace midi skirt, worn with a leather motto jacket and leopard heels.
Like I've mentioned a million times, there's nothing I love more than a look that mixes both tough and sweet. And lace and leather is one of my all-time favs.
The leopard heels sexy it up a bit and in themselves are a mix of sophistication and bad-assness. They make the look more chic, but an awesome pair of moto boots could have given this look an entirely new dimension.

Keep the jewelry quite simple in a look like this -- it can get a little confusing when you add to many new items. A simple black leather watch and some delicate gold jewelry does the trick.
I recently found this leather jacket at Topshop and I can't tell you how happy I am with this discovery. It is exactly what I was looking for and the snug fit is so flattering. I went down a size in this one to get it just right and the shoulders are still fine, so I would recommend you do the same. 
This skirt is also a recent find from Topshop (seriously loving this store lately!) and I was considering returning it since we're coming into fall weather, but I love the idea of a bright white skirt to brighten things up once it gets cooler out. 
I hope you have an amazing Tuesday! xoxo
