Leather and Lace Up

I’ve been sharing a lot of casual wear on the blog lately so I thought I would spice it up with a little date night attire.  This burgundy lace up sweater is one of my favorites!  Aside from the cute lace up detail, it also has a ribbed texture and bell sleeves.  And, because it’s not too thick, I can wear it through spring and maybe even into summer with shorts and wedges.  Though I’ve had it for awhile, I just realized that I hadn’t shared this lace up sweater with you so, when I had the chance to get dressed up and finally wear this faux leather skirt that I’ve been holding onto, I thought I’d style it for this fun + sassy date night look.  And, is it just me or is there something about wearing leather that makes you feel like a total bas a**.  Leather jacket, leather leggings and, now for spring + summer, leather skirts.

NOTE: Sweater runs large. I suggest sizing down one. Also, if you’re looking for a more casual option, this lace up lightweight hooded sweatshirt is SO cute. It just came in the mail and I love it!
