Lookbook: Hell Bent for Leather

This outfit came about because, like the title suggests, I was hell bent for leather. I've been wanting a great pair of leather shorts for a bit now and I finally found some. It's actually quite hard to find stores still selling leather shorts.

These are Lauren Conrad for Kohl's and they were actually the only leather shorts in the entire store--and they were on sale.

As you can see, I have much better light this time around. With DST, outfit photos have to be taken before 4PM or else you're done for.

Anyway, you might remember this Marc by Marc Jacobs top that I wrote about in this Inspiring Style post on Farfetch.

Everything else I'm wearing has made an appearance on the Muse before. The H&M wedge booties are my latest DIY project. I really, really like the way they turned out.

My default face always makes me look mad even when I'm not. So here's a smile.

This hits close to home. I was desperate looking for a pair of leather shorts before the IFB Conference and they were impossible to find! I couldn't believe it after they were so big last fall. I can't really be that behind the times, right?

I have been wanting some shorts like that too, but I am not brave enough to try them yet. Maybe with tights like you did? :) I love the shoes, glad to see them in an outfit!

I have never seen leather shorts, but these look amazing. I love the styling with the black tights and the shoes.
