Newsroom Fashion: Leopard + Leather

by - September 23, 2016

The first day of Fall certainly didn't feel very autumnal here in south Alabama. Our temperatures topped out somewhere in the 90s, which is above average even for us this time of year. Still, Fall fashion is by far my favorite so I definitely wanted to celebrate the changing of the season appropriately. This leopard-print tie-neck blouse has been a favorite ever since I found it on a clearance rack a few years ago, and it paired nicely with this faux leather skirt from ShoeDazzle. I've been wanting to add some leather to my closet and had a credit on my account so decided to click order, and I'm so glad I did. The quality is nice; it has a wrap look without being a wrap skirt, which I have a hard time wearing; and it's machine washable! I'm usually a M/L and wearing a large.

Would you believe I ordered this top as a dress? For real. It's barely even a tunic, and this is a large, but that's the risk you take when ordering from Forever21. Honestly though I love it as a shirt and even used it as a swimsuit cover-up last weekend at the beach. It's pretty see-through so I layered a nude-colored cami underneath. It's also meant to be off-the-shoulder but didn't really work well for me. These faux leather leggings were a $5 splurge last year, also from F21. I'm in the market for a nicer pair with a little more structure and linked to some options below.
