Style Me STL: Leather

We’re back!  Fellow St. Louis fashion bloggers—Lorena of Garnets & SapphiresJulia of Oh, Julia Ann, and Rachael of Style Every Day—and I have linked up to showcase another trend.  Today, we’re tackling what the The New York Times calls the super trend for fall—leather (real and faux).  Be sure to swing by their blogs for details on their looks.

This will be the first year that I’ve experimented with a leather trend.  You saw my black dress with faux leather raglan sleeves and my pencil skirt with faux leather trim.  As a leather newbie, I’m embracing the trend gingerly, opting to purchase items with subtle leather details.

My latest find is a classic, olive green, military-inspired jacket.  The faux-leather detail at the shoulder makes this already hip jacket just a bit hipper.  In today’s look, the jacket is layered over a white camisole and worn with skinny jeans.  Chunky gold jewelry, leopard wedges, and a yellow ostrich embossed bag complete the outfit.

I’m also linking with Mix and Match Fashion for the Summer Style challenge today.

    Love the jacket but when I clicked on the link grey was not an option to purchase. Did you buy yours recently or could it be in store only?

      Thanks! I did purchase mine in-store, but the jacket is available online. The Kohl's site has a weird setup. You must first select a color then size before clicking "add to bag" or the site gives an error message. The "add to bag" option is over on the far right too. Is that what happened when you tried? Let me know.

    It's still hotter than a pistol here but I love that jacket! Just happen to have $10 Kohl's cash too. 🙂

    I agree, a little leather detail goes a long way, but i'm most smitten with your beautiful leather bag! (and that gorgeous garden you are in!)
