It's a kind of a good-girl-gone-bad theme today but still with a hint of good girl. My inspiration came from the fantastic posts of the many talented fashionbloggers I read frequently. Actually, I was a black leather peplum top from H&M on a blog which spelled out total good-girl/bad-girl confusion. So I brought that to this post with mixing two contrasting textures, colours & clothing concepts together.
I feel leather pants brings out the melancholic in me: Somehow I cannot imagine being a happy, cheerleader-esque person in leather pants because of the 'cool girl' aura it has. Perhaps if leather pants would come in peach, lilac & baby blue tones? As for crop-tops, they are actually quite 'cheerleader'. I actually like this season's crop-top & bralet trends! I wore them a lot in my teens! But there comes the issue of being age-appropriate! So I tied my Equipment blouse above the waist, but kept a darker, matching top underneath to keep it age-appropriate or not so bare.
