the surprise shirt.




secondhand blouse via shop the haute pursuit; h&m faux leather skirt; asos bag; forever 21 necklace and watch; fashionology.nl hammered knuckle ring, cross ring, and claw ring; lowluv x erin wasson scarab ring via tobi.com; topshop suede wedges.

sorry for the quality of the pics. my necklace really isn't tarnished; it just photographs poorly.
i wore this to a dive bar with a ton of my friends last weekend.

this perfect little faux leather skirt is something i picked up at h&m last winter, and the lovely vanessa from the haute pursuit sent me this amazing secondhand blouse completely by surprise. i left a comment on one of her blog posts about how much i loved her khaki button down, and then a few weeks later i get a random package - she sent me one! so sweet and unexpected; it made receiving a shirt i'd been lusting over that much better - thanks V :)

So lovely of her to send you this shirt! It is beautiful. A nice utilitarian color with a chic minimalistic skirt. These are two of my favorite fall trends together. And they are really timeless, too!

I always adore what you wear. Honestly, I think you're almost iconic in the fashion blogging world. If there is a girl with lots of style with a brick wall behind her, chances are it is you! ;)

Leather mini's never go out do they? so love that.

did you hear about the H&M floaty leopard maxi that's currently in their European stores? I'm stalking the shops in NY daily.

Sad. I know.

amandamarie - that's what it's all about, at least for me - the connection and friendship with people who share a similar passion! thank you :)

song of style - aww thank you, you sexayyyy thang!

thehautepursuit - THANK U V! it has found the BEST home. i wear it like once a week, haha. xoxo

daisy - wow i would never consider myself iconic by any means, so thank you! i do love my brick wall though, hehe :)

jessica - leather is easy to wear when you pair it with something casual!

karen - no they sure don't. and i'm SO glad that you finally got that leo dress :) can't wait to see you in it!

fashion chalet - the question is not if it will happen, but when!! :)

FANTASTIC! You look great & I LOVE that you were not afraid to wear a leather skirt in August. By the way, never would have guessed it was a faux leather. Keep wearing the leather skirt & show us some more GREAT looks with it.
