Hello Simple && Sweeties,
I am 7 weeks into law school…
It really has been like drinking from a fire-hose. The way I think and how I conduct myself has become so methodical that if I had coffee with 6-months-ago me, she would guess she was meeting 32-year-old me. I have a side job ontop of this side hustle, I am a member of two on campus clubs, and I have become a vegan.
But don’t worry, I’m still a free-thinking hippie. A point which brings me to today’s outfit.
I’ve recently weeded through my closet and donated everything that distracts from the me in the outfit. Gone are the snarky t-shirts and anything remotely slooty, brazzen or boring (with the exception of clubwear). There were a few pieces however, that deserved a last hurrah!
These leather shorts being one of them. This outfit was inspired visually by Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson)
and emotionally by Barney Stintson… Challenge, wait for it…………….. Accepted.
Leather is a tricky fabric to incorporate into a tasteful wardrobe. In deciding to wear my pleather shorts, I knew I was going to be walking a fine light between bold or just plain bad taste. I’m happy to say I’m kinda thrilled with the end result. It was a hit with my classmates, but I think it is a bit much to make this shorts and blazer trend an everyday thing.
A golden rule I live by is when being bold with accentuating your body, commit to either the top or the bottom.
The amount of leg draws enough attention that it’s best to play it safe up at the top.
Like the look?
Here are the links to the same and similar pieces.
Thanks so much for the continued love and support my Simple && Sweet family.
