All of a sudden I began to notice something, everyone has now started to ditch their leather jackets for leather tops! Maybe it’s due to the fact that it’s pretty hot since it’s Summer, that everyone has switched for grabbing a leather shirt instead of outerwear. I’ve seen them in all forms from crop tops to tube tops and even leather button-ups.
While out shopping at H&M last week I picked up this sheer and “leather” top for only $25! Casual enough to pair with jeans or to get a little edgy, I may rock it with a skirt. I’m not quite sure yet, but I’ll post my look whenever I decide to wear it!
I found another “leather” top while out shopping at Swank Boutique (Instagram: SwankAPosh) and I just couldn’t leave it! Don’t you just LOVE when that happens?! lol It being a crop top was like a 2 for 1 deal and I had to have it. Immediately thinking of a look in my mind, I knew I wanted to tone it down with a simple classy bottom to balance out such a sexy top. Just think about it. Black…leather…form fitting…low cut and cropped; that’s a recipe for pure sexiness. And since that wasn’t the look that I was going for, I went with a pair of high-waist bronze trousers from Forever 21 to keep it safe.
The shirt is available now at Swank Boutique! Phone orders can be made at 1-855-SwankAPosh.
Last weekend I had the pleasure of co-hosting a local event and opposed to my usual uniform, I wanted to switch my style up a little. I went for a more casual look, geared by the shirt tied around the waist trend. That jean button-up has been hanging around in my closet for years and as I rushed to get dressed (I mean seriously as I was running out of the door), I grabbed it and tied it around my waist. As I walked by my mirror, I was surprised and happy that it all made sense lol! I’ve stated before that I’m obsessed with this infamous photo of Farrah Fawcett, so I almost had a fit when I saw it hanging up in Urban Outfitters…I had to have it! Just as with the previous Notorious B.I.G shirt that I snagged from there, it was from the men’s department. Which is fine, I just got a size small and made it werk.

I wanted to play with the colors in the t-shirt, not going directly for the main colors in the tee…but the same color family. I had been dying to wear these high-waist jeans that I’d picked up from Swank Boutique. They are the EXACT same fit as the American Apparel “Easy” jeans that we’d featured in the Emily B. post from our event at Swank! American Apparel only offers black, light blue and dark blue. The great thing about these are that they’re great pieces for sorbet color blocking or just adding a few shades to your wardrobe for Summer! They even offer them in two other colors (yes I snuck and took pictures to show you guys lol!)…
I have them in each color and can’t wait to wear them lol! You can pick these up by following Swank Boutique on Twitter at @SwankAPosh and they also take phone orders 1-855-Swank-A-Posh!
