Loving Leather

You would think that wearing leather and black would be the farthest thing from my mind with the humidity and heat right now but when the pre-fall collections hit stores, I just couldn't resist deviating from my plan to only shop the end of summer sales and fantasizing about about my favorite season.
Self control? What self control? when confronted with the selection of leather, moody blacks, forest greens, and maroons that are fazing out the sale items.

In addition to a pair of black coated jeans (actually on sale!), I picked up this blazer Saturday.  I love how it cinches at the waist, is substantial enough to wear as a light jacket, and has an updated take on the ever popular peplum.  I convinced myself that a thin white linen t-shirt and lots of air conditioning would make it just bearable to wear to a meeting earlier this week.

From the stores...

To my body.

Apologies for the state of my first floor.  As you can see, my apartment is currently a construction zone that will hopefully soon transform into a beautiful new kitchen in the next 4 weeks.
