Leather & Lace

Top: Joe Fresh, Faux Leather Denim: c/o James Jeans, Shoes: c/o Zara, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff c/o Eluxe, Necklace: c/o olive + piper, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Stella & Dot and Smart Set, Sunglasses: c/o Sunglass Warehouse

Oh Monday, we meet again. I hope you all had wonderful weekends! I had the most perfect mix of lots of sleep & rest & downtime mixed in with lots of yoga and a bit of social time. Unfortunately my restful weekend lead me to a completely restless night last night, and it was nearly time to get up again by the time I finally fell asleep. I'm not quite ready for you, work week.

Can we talk about these jeans for a minute? I have shied away from the faux leather trend when it comes to pants, thinking that it would inevitably leave my shapely lower half looking a little stuffed sausage-like, but these looser fitting Twiggy Jeather jeans from James Jeans are the perfect introduction! They are supremely comfortable and easy to wear, and while definitely a little looser than I thought they'd be,  I'm really loving the edgy yet laid back feel of these jeans! 

Also, I'd like you to meet my new favorite sunnies. I got these from Sunglass Warehouse a week or so ago and they've barely left my face since. I'm sure it comes as no surprise that the gold arms totally won me over. ;)

  14. Loving the pants, don't worry I have the same dilemma with leather type pants and worrying I'll look like a stuffed sausage hahaha I finally found a decent pair though from h&m! ps. I love the background, it reminds me of Europe xx
