Leather & Scallops

 Shorts: 'Scalloped Vegan Shorts' c/o Brand+Label (available at Lulu's!)
Top: Nordstroms - similar






 Have you ever planned on wearing something, but then the weather turned on you and suddenly your outfit of choice did not seem like such a good idea?

When I received these AMAZING shorts, I was beyond excited to wear them. I spent the whole week working, and a leather short just wasn't dress code, so I spent day after day dreaming of how I would wear them. Friday, it reached 50 degrees and I found myself heading home from work, peeling off layers of sweaters and long sleeves with the epiphany that Saturday would be THE day that I would bust out these gorgeous shorts. Enter Saturday. A cold, bleak, day with absolutely FRIGID temperatures. Yes, I was pretty upset that my lovely shorts would not get to enter into the world in all the glory I had planned, but you better believe that wasn't stopping me from wearing them!

These Brand and Label shorts are the PERFECT faux leather short! I have been wanting a pair for years, but have never been able to find a pair that fit me perfectly and were chic enough. Not only does this pair fit like a glove, but it has adorable zipper detailing on either side AND scallops. Thats right, these beauties have a scalloped hem! Love at first sight! I have now come to the conclusion that EVERY girl needs a pair of leather shorts! They are a new closet staple that can so easily be dressed for any occasion...even freezing winter weather!

 To style these for chilly temps, I paired them with a chambray shirt, my burgundy caring cowl, a utility jacket, sheer tights so the scalloped hem could still be admired and my new favorite boots.
Plan on seeing these pretty little things often....I'm obsessed!

  5. I love that your outfits have been leaning more boho lately! I'm all about the Mary-Kate-layered-baggy-flowy stuff, especially in the winter.
