Leather and Chains

Sweater: BCBGMAXAZRIA (here) ** Shorts: Buffalo by David Bitton (old) (love these) ** Shoes: Burberry (old) (kind of in love with these) ** Jewelry: BCBG (here), Vince Camuto, Anne Klein ** Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs

I like how I said on Monday that I try to steer clear of wearing shorts, and in 2 of my 3 posts this week I'm wearing shorts.  I promise it doesn't happen often, I just couldn't help myself! Who doesn't want to pair a chunky knit sweater with a little bit of leather?! (I think they are actually 'pleather' but shhhh, we don't have to tell anyone!  Anyways, I think my favorite part of this outfit is the shoes.  I don't get to wear them often and when I do, I feel so powerful! They also make me feel like a giant because I'm pretty sure I'm 6'2" when I wear them, but that's besides the point!

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!


  1. LOVE the shoes!!!!!!!!


  2. I am a huge fan of a great sweater and some leathers, too! What a fantastic outfit!

    BTW... shorts work well for you!

    LOVE those shoes, too.

    Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. Hope you will return again soon.

  3. How is it possible that I missed your blog?! Anyway thanks to a blogger friend I found you! Loving your style and I must say that sweater is so flattering! I want a pair for myself!! Following you now and hope you can come and visit me and browse through and see if you can follow me too :) Cant wait to see more!

  4. Ellyse! I LOVE your blog. I actually found it through Mini Me Style copying your look.

    This outfit is great... Leather (or pleather, it's good- both are good) and chunky knits are a BIG score in my book. And I think you should sport shorts as much as you can. Some of us (eh hem) are stuck with short legs... Rock em all day long, sister!

    I look forward to keeping up with your blog! Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!

    It's an Easy Life
