Crop Tops + Leather Feels

If you packed away all of your leather at the onset of spring, you’re virtual Stylist {moi! 😉 } is here to tell you that it’s perfectly OK and pretty chic to rock certain pieces of leather year-round! On this particularly cool summer day I wore my favorite faux leather trousers from Zara in the prettiest burnt orange shade. I paired them with a cute little crochet crop top that I snagged while thrifting (brand is Topshop) and platform sandals. The unexpected addition of leather really just made this outfit ‘POP’ versus going for the obvious pairing of denim. For summer, just remember to keep the leather loose (for breathability) and neutral or bright in color!

Fashion statements are created when we make unpredictable style decisions {Oohhh that was deep!…quote me on that! lol}…atlantaphotographer-7-(ZF-7087-77017-1-006)atlantaphotographer-1-(ZF-7087-77017-1-002)atlantaphotographer-9-(ZF-7087-77017-1-008)atlantaphotographer-8-(ZF-7087-77017-1-007)This gorgeous and fun handbag is one of my fav’s this season! It resembles the Gucci Dionysus tote with it’s shape, bamboo handle, and floral embroidery…but I bought this beauty for a fraction of the cost. It comes in 3 color combinations, and I’ve linked it here for you to shop too!

I’ve also linked up a few other adorable crop tops that are so perfect to mix & match with this summer herehere, herehere & here!atlantaphotographer-3-(ZF-7087-77017-1-005)PSX_20170716_194604                                 Heels & Earrings: Nordstrom // Sunnies (old)

Last but not least, let’s talk about this FAB ‘braidhawk & pony’ hairstyle by Monae of M. Sharron Designs (IG: @msharrondesigns)! Monae is the creative behind ALL of my hair looks on the blog for the past five months! It has been such a pleasure collaborating with her, and if you’re in Atlanta and looking for a great Stylist- she’s your girl!! Monae is also mobile (meaning she’ll bring the salon to you!) and she’s the best at it all from natural hair, to color & cut, and weave styles.

Fashionably Yours,

Aliya
