Coral and Leather

by Jamila Pierre

So ok, I promise I don't only wear hot pink kitten heels....who am I kidding...

I am a sucker for pink and pinkish-hued footwear and you'll inevitable see it bombard you on my blog, but I swear I have one millions shoes....or what seems like one million shoes. I just have not felt so compelled to bring them all out and when you find a shoe that has, over the course of a few months has, become your become stuck like glue to one another. 

I am also a huge sucker for pops of color even when I'm drenched in color already and I don't care what anyone has to say about it. 

And lastly, I am a ridiculously huge sucker for a pointy-toed kitten heel. I NEED THEM IN EVERY COLOR KNOWN TO MAN!


Also, as excited as I am for the slightly warmer weather, mother nature refuses to stop playing all these games with my emotions. In the sun it's glorious, but in the shade it's freezing. Now the reason the shade is so offensive is because people tend to dress for the sun and the degrees the forecast is promising, but when you head out into the world and the shade wants to act like it doesn't have a clue as to what season we're in...... now you're ending up being dress for warmth and under-dressed for the damn shade.

Which brings me to leather, I know some of you may be wondering how all that brought us to leather, but trust.

Obviously when I talk leather I mean the faux kind, if you're into the real you boo, but I ain't talkin' bout that...moving on.

Leather is a perfect transitional material from winter into the beginning stages of spring. If you compensate for the thickness of the material with the length of the garment or if you just have it as an accent on a top or bottom, you can surely get away with it without feeling like you're sweating your life away. 

Here I've done just that, I decided to rock my faux leather skirt from Forever21 and a top that contrasts with the heavier material of my skirt to provide some balance in the look and feel of the outfit. The top also has mesh on the very top so it provide maximum airflow. I paired it with the coral Pumps and called that sucker a day.

The coral pumps are a lot more coral in person, scouts honor.
