Who, What, Wear: Casual Leather

Running errands on a day off means I get to dress down. I recently invested in a black (faux) leather skater skirt and wanted to experiment with dressing it down.       BeFunky_DSC01741.jpg BeFunky_DSC01742.jpg BeFunky_DSC01743.jpg usethis BeFunky_DSC01734.jpg BeFunky_DSC01739.jpg

I love the silhouette of the leather skater skirt – why didn’t I own one before?!  The cut of the skirt is very feminine but the faux leather material ups the ‘tomboy’ factor of the piece. LOVE! I paired it with a Star Wars tee, a knit cardigan, light grey fleece leggings and black flat-heeled combat boots to keep it casual. Throw on my camel coat and I’m out the door!

FACE & HAIR OF THE DAY

glasses + deep pink lipstick + bare face = errands

I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 9 and I associate my glasses with the ‘ugly’ phase of my life. I just don`t feel beautiful when I wear them…any other glasses-wearing humans out there who can relate to this?

I`m slowly trying to get rid of this messed up idea…which is why I love it when women (real or fictional e.g. Felicity Smoak) rock glasses. Maybe this means I need a new pair of glasses…hehehe.

SILLY EXTRA

    • thanks so much Arielle! 🙂 I wasn’t sure about it but it’s always good to get positive affirmations from others.

  1. nooo i think glasses can be worn fashionably! you don’t look bad in them at all! i see a lot of celebs rocking them 😛 btw is it cold over there? seoul was -2 today and i was DYING. miss bangkok more than ever!

    • thanks Annie! do you wear glasses too? I think the trick is to wear glasses that make you feel confident…I’ve never owned a pair of glasses I absolutely loved! Time to go shopping hehe.
      and yes…every morning hits around -3 here and it gets up to 8/9 degrees in the day.

    • thanks so much! I live in layers up til it’s in August in Vancouver because I am one of those people who are cold all the time. 🙂
