And here's where I attempt to pull off white leather.

It has become clear to me that I have a thing for cropped, fitted, leather jackets. I have a black one, a cognac one, and now a winter white one! I just couldn't resist it. I think leather is going to be everywhere this fall!
There's something about leather that makes a person feel tough!

I love the girly details on this jacket. Ruffles and beading? Yes, please!

These old stand-by boots are pretty much the only shoes that still fit me. Sad face!

There's a bird on this necklace. Love!

Can I just gush for a moment about how much I love TJ Maxx and Marshalls? We didn't have those in my little town growing up, but when I went to college in California, my mom introduced me to the wonderfulness of Marshalls. They recently sent me a gift card to help me revamp my fall wardobe, and it was so hard to spend! Not because I couldn't find anything, but because I wanted everything! I was thisclose to getting a pair of motorcycle boots but I have high hopes that my feet will shrink back down to their pre-pregancy size one day, so I opted for this super cute leather jacket, instead. Original retail price? $139. Marshalls price? $49.99. Wht a deal!
