Can you believe we are already into August? I always feel like it takes June to adjust to everyone being home, camps, new schedules, etc… then July can be a little iffy on the weather here in Michigan. I always feel like when August roles around we are doing great, enjoying summer and all of a sudden it’s time to prepare for back to school! Now don’t get me wrong I love the structure that school brings but what makes me sad about summer ending are things like *lights of day light in the evening *warm weather *sitting on my deck *going to the beach on the weekends as a family * summer drinks *grilling out *SUNTANS!
I love all four seasons and dressing for each is the best…however I would love winter to be a little shorter and summer a little longer! Are you with me?!?!
Onto this white leather gem! You know I love leather…and well this summer I love WHITE! So this skirt was a great partnership! I paired with this simple black tank b/c I felt the skirt is so cool on it’s own with the cut-out pattern detail and the style! I am excited to wear this white skirt in the fall with ankle boots and a denim shirt! Do you find yourself wanting to pair everything you buy with a denim jacket or shirt? I know I do! But hey, what change what works, right 🙂
I also think this white skirt would look super cool with a grey v-neck t-shirt! I am on the hunt for a great t-shirt! I need white and grey…any suggestions? I’ve seen some great options but I am not willing to spend a lot on this basic clothing staple. They also need to be fitted but not cling to my love handles / muffin top (yes I said it) Certain material can accentuate those unsightly areas more then others…I have found that tops with Rayon in them can be clingy in the wrong way. I can wear a tight fitting tank or t-shirt that is cotton and not have that problem. Keep this in mind when you are shopping. Check out the material used to make the pieces you already love in your closet and then look for those combinations!

I just love this! Travel light!! Are you traveling light today? If you’re not what on that list is weighing you down? I can tell you that unforgiveness, selfishness and fear is weighing me down. I am working to shed those things…what can you shed today that might make your journey a little lighter??!!
