My California vacation is nearing it’s end and that makes me super sad.  I’ve met a new client, went to a friend’s wedding and hung out with family… so it’s been a 3 for 1 trip which is pretty awesome!  On this trip, the only jacket I brought with me is this leather jacket and it’s been proving to be real useful for 40-60 degree temps (esp. in San Francisco)!  I love this outfit because it’s got some ballerina chic mixed with edgy rocker.  :)

I am loving the mix of masculine (leather) and feminine (tulle, leopard) all in a single outfit and now I just want more tulle skirt in my life.

Thanks to my girl Madi Reid Sanders for snapping these pics for me!

    Love how you paired your ultra feminine skirt with uber non feminine pieces.

    This outfit is amazing! I love that you still conserve your girly girl side but added a touch of edge with the leather jacket. Great outfit to go to lunch with friends and even go out at night with it. The pop of red with the neutrals also helps give this outfit tons of personality !

    Stay lovely,
