Just add leather

Thankfifi in French Connection lace skirt-4

If ever you’re in danger of coming over all girly just add leather.  Every piece you own should do it.

In fact I am actually looking forward to styling these pretty blush shades for summer in a more feminine way but, first of all, it’s still too cold for double lace and, second, I enjoy the contrast of the powder puff pinks and the black leathers.  Threw on a sweatshirt too – just twisted it at the back and tucked it up (it really does stay on it’s own but if not get a hair tie involved and you’re laughing).

It’s almost the weekend guys, there’s been talk of a work brunch today (I have no idea either but I’m excited) and there’s a squash court booked for tomorrow.  Husband, you better bring it.

On Monday I’ll be talking about blogging and hosting a Q&A at Caledonian University’s Media Week – the event is open to everyone so check it out here and let me know if you’re coming!  Would be great to meet some of you.x

    Fabulous styling!
    You are so right about adding leather – it immediately turns an outfit around.
    I am curious about your briefing at the university. Will you let us know?

    That skirt is amazing. Is it true to size?

      yes I would say so – I got an 8 (sometimes in French Connection I can be a 6 but that’s with tops – I think a 6 would have been too tight on my derriere! – the 8 is definitely generous though)

      had it for about a year now and it’s still one of my favourite go-to pieces

    Cool, you’ve just given me another idea for my leather peplum top. Actually, 2 more ideas. Keep ’em coming!

      I’ll do my best!

    Edgy leather peplum + feminine lace + (Wendy) = Beauty and supreme elegance but with the necessary badass effect 😉 The equation always works
