Leather, Heels, and a Giveaway

I love the look of (faux) leather jackets. So easy to toss on over anything, and can add a bit of interest to any outfit you wear. Something as simple as a basic white tee is taken up a notch when a leather jacket is tossed on over it.

I was a fan of this sweater from Target, but thought it was a little plain by itself, and I wasn't in the mood to layer underneath it with a button up. The leather jacket was the perfect finishing touch. I will say though, you might want to size up with this sweater. I personally prefer tops that are a little longer-that has sort of been my preference the last few years. This sweater is a little on the shorter side for my taste. Sizing up did the trick.









Outfit Details:
Leather Jacket: Target (similar) /// Sweater: Target /// Jeans: Target /// Shoes: Kohls /// Bag: Blair Ritchey /// Necklace: Cookie Lee /// Bracelets: c/o My Saint My Hero, My Saint My Hero, Alex and Ani, Stella and Dot

I got these new My Saint My Hero bracelets the other weekend at Simply Stylist. I have worn them every single days since. I absolutely love them, but love the meaning behind them even more. The Breathe Blessing Bracelet is to be a simple reminder to breathe. When you feel the need, you are to run your fingers along the string, grasp the metal and simply breathe. They say by taking a moment to focus your attention to breathing and linking that breath to God, you can 'dispel the chaos and go back to our spiritual roots.' The Benedictine Blessing Bracelet is just as awesome. The Benedictine Cross is one of the most powerful symbols of protection. When you wear this bracelet, it is supposed to protect you, your loved ones and your home. They have a ton of other ones too- great price point and the meaning behind them makes them so thoughtful! And, according to my friend Sage, when you are gifted one, you are to pay it forward and gift one to someone else! (this isn't a sponsored post, I just really love them!) They are worth checking out if you haven't already! 

Finally, I am joining several other wonderful ladies for a great giveaway...$600 worth of amazing goodies!!!! Check it out and good luck! Ashley, from Afternoon Espresso is hosting....take it away, Ashley!!

  1. I haven't SEEN that sweater yet at Target, how on earth did I miss it?! I always size up a size or two at Target (and Old Navy), to get the perfect fit and slouch. I hate tight stuff!
