Weekly Findings - July 2

Oh, holiday weekend, how you vex me! While I had slightly more luck yesterday for garage saling/thrifting, I maybe spent two more dollars than I did two days ago. I’m a big spender, I know. But no matter, because check out this beauty I got for only a dollar! Behold the leather skirt (yes, it’s real leather).

Leather is a funny thing. Some people hear I got a leather skirt and say, “Oh, that’s so cool!” Others, like my mom and aunt, just roll their eyes. But my personal favorite reaction to the skirt was from my friend, Emily, who texted me, “So wow…a leather skirt - i’m assuming it’s tasteful if you bought it.” I laughed and assured her it’d go well with my Harley. Kidding.

I’m definitely going to be wearing this during the fall, seeing as how leather is still pretty big (check out Chanel’s Fall 2010 show). I plan on taking a cue from Kate Hudson, who also wore a cute outfit that included a leather skirt. It’s all about being tasteful (Emily) and classy. Tights are a must with any skirt that’s above the knee and leather. I can just picture it now; I will definitely be pulling it out this fall!

Happy Independence Day to everyone! Enjoy the day with family and fireworks, and be ready on Monday to see my Fourth of July outfit!
