Black leather skirt


The sun came up afterall….

Well….we all survived the night, hopefully. What a nail biter of a night for ALL involved, right? No matter what side you were pulling for, it was just a hard four hours there at the end. I’m praying for our country today. I truly hope we can all respect each other’s feelings about the result, although I know it can be difficult given the emotional toll this election cycle has had on the vast majority of America. God has a plan, friends, whether or not we see (or frankly, agree with) it right now.

“Those who leave everything in God’s hand will eventually see God’s hand in everything.”

I know we ALL are ready to finally have that process over and done with. It’s been so interesting to see how much this election has affected our daily lives the past six or so months. So many of us have been in a state of worry and anxiousness about how it all would turn out. My personal trainer and I were talking this week about it and she has noticed a huge difference in her clients the past few months. Either they don’t have that “fire” that they once had for being active and fit or they are just dead tired all the time. She attributes a great deal of that to the stress this election has had on us all, even if we are consciously unaware of it. I can’t say I don’t agree with that, as I’ve even noticed it a bit in myself.

So, here’s to a new day and the hope for less political trashing in all of our social media newsfeeds…ok, that may take a week or two. 🙂

Now, let’s move on to lighter topics! Let’s chat some leather and laceups today, shall we? I scored both of these pieces in the same shipment a few weeks ago and have fallen in love with both of these fall staples!

I don’t own a TON of winter sweaters because, hello, south Louisiana. So, when I do take the plunge and purchase one I want it to be of great quality and function. This one fits the bill perfectly with the slouchy, cozy lived in feel I look for in a sweater.

Finding a great real leather skirt has always been a bit of a mission of mine. When I spotted this one with the tradtional laceup detail, I immediately pounced on it! I held my breath as I waited for it to arrive and was SO stoked when I put it on. EXACTLY what I had been on the hunt for! My only wish is that it came in more colors, because I would surely be stocking up on them.

Hey, have you found the right over the knee boots for you this season yet? There are plenty of great ones out there, but I truly believe that for the price and quality, these that I’m wearing are the way to go. They come in brown, black leather and a charcoal grey, which is what I went with. Very comfortable with the thicker heel and adds such a great pop of sleekness to any outfit.

Thanks so much for reading, friends! I’m off to see my hair guru today. I think we’re going to change things up a bit with a little more of an ombre effect this fall/winter season. I spotted some hair inspo on Instagram recently and I’m dying to give it a try. After having my locks light for so long now, I’m just hoping I don’t freak out when I see it darker!

Have a great one! XO
