For the past year or so, fashion magazines have been trying to convince me that summer leather is not only a thing, but that it’s a good thing. And perhaps, for others, it is. But, not for me. I am a heavy glistener, by which I mean I sweat a lot. Add to that the fact that I sweat even more because I ride my bike to work and I can imagine only a few things more uncomfortable than wearing leather in the summer. But, even though I unequivocally refuse to attempt summer leather, I’m willing to compromise with spring suede:
Because I’m all about compromise. Okay, not really. But, I like to try everything once. And, I’m glad I did; because I think it worked in my favor here:
The suede skirt (Valerie Stevens via Goodwill) paired with the denim top (Caslon via Nordstrom) were perfect for today’s in-between weather. I also added a bib necklace (Nordstrom), my vintage ram-buckle belt and my new spring boots (Corso Como “Seminole” via Piperlime).

So, yes, spring suede I’ll do, but summer leather is still a “no” for me. What about you, Reader Friends? Are you summer leather wearers?
Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
