Quilting and Leather

Hope you’re all having a great evening!  Today’s post starts with what I wish I were wearing and ends with what I actually wore today.

Top:  Target (Available here)
Purse:  Forever 21 (Available here)
Blazer:  The Limited

The first look would be perfect for an evening out (when the temps start warming up).  I love the cutout on the top and how the quilting on the top echoes the bag.  

The faux leather envelope skirt and booties keep the jacket casual.

Skirt:  Forever 21
Booties:  Target (Available here)

I’m still playing with some of the lovely jewelry pieces from Ixora Boutique.

Necklace:  Ixora Boutique (Available here)

Today, I’m wearing the awesome Soleil pendant in gold.  If you haven’t noticed from two of my tattoos, I’m sort of a sun worshipper!  I absolutely love this pendant – the mixed gold and silver metals make this piece super versatile.  Expect to see it on the blog a lot!  🙂

I’m also wearing the moonstone ring again – also a truly versatile piece that works with many different moods.

Ring:  Ixora Boutique (Available here)

My second look for today is just a small twist on the look above.  I swapped out the skirt for satin-trim tuxedo striped trousers, and I was ready for work.  I love how the cutout on this top makes simple black suit look fun.

Pants:  New York & Company Petites (Similar here)

Which look do you prefer?  Do you find yourself attracted to suns or other images/prints?

  1. I love the detail on that top and the shoes. You should wear that first outfit for a night on the town this weekend!

  2. Oh I have the same skirt and I just wore it this weekend too. Just wondering did you do any alterations on your skirt? Just wondering because my skirt is kinda long on me. But yeah it's such a cute outfit and I love the pendant necklace. 🙂

  3. Oh I need to try that because mine is as long as how yours was in the other post.
