Love Leather




I've been slightly obsessed lately with leather so I thought I would look for a few faux leather pieces that my readers might be interested in. I started with the lowest-priced item that I could find: a faux leather trim t-shirt at only $18. I did a post on Monday on some fabulous faux leather finds, so if you are like me and love this trend, jump on it while it is hot!

Slightly off topic, I thought I would give you guys a little peek into what has been my life as of late. My three-year-old son started school today (pre-school) and I think I was a little more stressed out than he was. I hardly slept a wink last night knowing that we had to be up at the crack of dawn and dressed, fed, make-up on (that would be me, not him). We made it on time and he went in with no stress or tears.

I have also been busy teaching (eight classes this year.) I love my job and I am so fortunate to spend a few days a week teaching girls to dance. This is my first year in over ten years to teach kids under the age of ten. It is very cool to see little minds at work and to see them grasp concepts. Now if I can just get them to listen to me the WHOLE time then we will be in business!

Have a fabulous day!

  3. Aww it must have been nerve-wracking watching your little man go off to school for the first time. I'm actually dreading that day myself, my little girl is just a bit older than two. I think I may have more tears than she has on the first day. I love all these selections by the way. Yes to everything leather, especially leather trimmed t-shirts.

  10. I'm a huge leather fan, too! But I've actually realize the only leather piece I own is a jacket...I definitely want to get my hands on a shirt with leather detailing!

  12. In love with the leather trim and panel pieces! My fall leather wish list consists of a sleeveless black leather top (possibly peplum...similar to your pick) and a burgundy leather piece :)

  13. Leather shoes or handbag is too traditional, and so this Fall trend is about unusual leather pieces like leather top, skirt, leggins..you name it! Love the new way of looking at leather, and love your leather finds. :-)
    I too am planning on wearing some leather in my new outfits, and maybe even making some leather tops myself.

  14. No way, you're a dance teacher?! I used to be a professional ballet dancer and did choreography/teaching...didn't realize we had that in common. You're very lucky to still do that :) Love your leather recommends.

  23. Aww, I hope your son enjoyed his first day at school! I've been so loving leather lately also. I just bought a faux leather light pink skirt from H&M and can't wait to wear it!
