Leather Maxi, Denim Vest and A Little Danger

"I'm in a hurry, so I'm not going to stop the car...
I'll just drive by [Fair Isle's] house slowly and you girls jump out,"
I told Princess Sparkles and Pigtails on the way to my mom's.
Pigtails nodded, Sparkles' furrowed her brow.
"Make sure you stay in a ball and roll when you hit the ground."
Then Sparkles smiled and laughed.
"Everything you say that's dangerous I won't believe. You're teasing!"
I told Sparkles she was too smart for me.
As for Pigtails, she seemed a bit disappointed.


BLACK LEATHER MAXI SKIRT - Thrifted
T-SHIRT - New York and Co (swapped)
OMBRE DENIM VEST - Forever 21
BRACELET - J Crew (gifted)
FLORAL WEDGES - Chinese Laundry (thrifted)





This past weekend I brought down some of my spring clothes.  I was excited to find my ombre denim vest and decided to pair it with a black leather maxi my mom, Fair Isle, thrifted.  I also wore some girly hawaiian print wedges I got at the Goodwill.  The beautiful bracelet is a present from Argyle and Khakis (my sister and brother-in-law).  Linking this outfit up to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.

Pigtails and Sparkles get a hug from a python...

I've been in a leather wearing mood lately, and where better to wear a black leather maxi than church?  I love pairing something edgy with something girly.   It just feels... Dangerous.

Ha ha! That's a good one. I used to tell Kayla I was sending her to the zoo to live with the monkeys because she would act crazy. She believed me for a little while :)

LOL Sounds kinda like my kids. My oldest would throw a big dramatic fit about a comment like that "Oh so I guess you don't even CARE if we get hurt!" My younger son would laugh it off and my daughter would probably cry. LOL I love your vest and that skirt is gorgeous!
