Watermelon and Leather

leather skirt: COS - Blouse: Equipment (similar here) - Shoes: Zara S/S 12- Bag: Jerome Dreyfuss (in military green here, marine here, pony here) - Cuff right: Etsy - bracelet left: DIY - bracelet 2 left: ?

The in-between weather made me reach for a bare legs but covered arms combination. I found the perfect pair of Zara shoes on sale to enhance the gloss-power of the leather skirt: I think 90% of the bloggers will recognize them, don't you? That made the outfit still too neutrally brown for my Leo personality, so I added a watermelon silk blouse to make it more zesty and to lend the leather skirt a bit of Office-wear allure. And ofcourse, the Jerome Dreyfuss: It's such a delightful smaller summerbag in that lovely coral red colour. I like the other options I listed as well but they are too pricy for the time being: the pony would be my favourite, but I know that many of you who like the military trend will like that version.

How is this military trend falling with you? I think it would be too androgyne for me to wear it but I'm sure other girls would get total attitude with it. Will you rock this trend?

  1. The watermelon color is so beautiful and unexpected with the brown leather skirt, I love that combination! I'm not a big military wearing girl, but may venture into some army green in the winter just to break up the monotony because there's going to be so much black coming in....
