Flower Child

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with their family and friends!
As of late I have been collecting hair accessories to add a different flair to my outfit. This feather flower hair-pin was one of my pre-Black Friday purchase which I got at Macy's for $2. I'm sure some of the more creative bloggers could easily do a DIY on it from their household items =)
I was never a fan of the feather extension trend but I thought this pin added a subtle "girly" touch to the otherwise edgy look from the leather shorts. For the last couple of weeks I have been enamored by the beauty of anything pink. I love pairing pinks with brown and black, it creates such a romantic look and has an incredibly serene feel.
I was drawn to this blouse because of its lace details on the shoulders as well as the flowy material in the back. I love leather shorts, but sometimes I feel quite overexposed when wearing it so it's always nice to cover up as much as I can to give it a more classy look.

Leather shorts are a real statement piece that captures a cool spirit and a rebellious style. It's such a versatile and edgy piece that can be mixed with so many different things. The key element is to avoid anything too provocative: you are trying to create a neat-fitted "pulled-together" look so try to keep the rest of your outfit simple and classy. I love the fit of a nice pair of leather shorts and how it creates an illusion of never-ending legs!
