Leopard, Stripes, Faux Leather and a Flower Girl

"I held somebody's hand,"
Pigtails exclaimed when asked what she did in New Jersey.
She got to be a flower girl -- for the first time
(since last year she ran off just as she was supposed to walk down the aisle).
Then Pigtails flashed a big smile,
"I had to have a boyfriends."

LEOPARD PRINT SKATER SKIRT - Nordstrom Rack
BLACK CARDIGAN - Motherhood Maternity
STRIPED TANK - Foreign Exchange
BLACK WEDGE BOOTIES - Target
BRACELET - J Crew

DENIM LEATHER MOTO JACKET - Forever 21
SWEATER TOP - Irene's Story (swapped)
JEGGINGS - Kohls
CHEVRON NECKLACE - iSanctuary
BOOTIES - Rag and Bone (gifted)

Here's what I wore this weekend.  I found the leopard print skater skirt on clearance at the Rack for $12.  I really liked that it had faux leather accents.  I decided to pair it with stripes and some wedge booties for church.  The other outfit I wore to see a play.  The denim and leather moto jacket I found at F21 for $8 when they had a crazy sale.  The v-neck top I got in a swap with my friends.


Flower Girl

I love a hint of faux leather, it really makes an edgy piece even more fabulous.  I especially can't help myself when I find that piece on clearance.  Unlike last year's flower girl, it's impossible to run away -- I just have to buy it!!!
