Style Remix: Black and White

I hope you had an amazing weekend!  Mine was laid-back and wonderful, the highlight of which was hosting a homemade Sunday dinner with dear friends and football.  We have been so lucky to have sunshine and temperatures in the low 80's this weekend, and the sun is supposed to stick around all week.  This is the time of year where I don't want to let go of summer pieces, but I also want to start transitioning into my fall wardrobe.  Today's black and white outfit embodies this feeling by mixing a loose summer tank (polka dots in front and stripes in back - two favorite patterns combined!) with my Asos high-waisted leather skirt, Halogen peep-toe booties, and Pour La Victoire tote scored from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  You may remember this skirt and necklace from my February post: Black and White, and lucky for me black leather is still a huge trend for this fall.





Skirt: Asos (old), similar Vera Moda "Leather Look High Waist Pencil Skirt" in black, $64.13 at Asos here
Tank: Caslon via Nordstrom (old), similar Caslon "Print Racerback Tank" in grey cloudburst/black dot, $29.50 at Nordstrom here
Booties: Halogen "Katrina" bootie in black, $99.95 at Nordstrom here
Bag: Pour La Victoire "Butler Large Tote" in black, but navy/natural/oxblood available for $129.99 at 6pm.com here

Necklace: Chanel (old), check out the "Prism Gem Collar" in hematite, $32 at Baublebar here

I love the look and feel of real leather, but let's be honest: real leather is not easy on the shopping budget.  The great news is that there a ton of faux leather pieces out in stores that look amazing but are also affordable!  Check out my picks for black faux leather pieces below:


Left: "(Minus the) Leather Peplum Top" in pitch black, $79.90 at Express here
Middle: Asos "Pleated Skirt in Leather Look" in black, $40.50 at Asos here
Right: Emperia "Faux Leather Tote Bag" in black, $48 at Nordstrom here

Linking up with the lovely Lauren over at Style Elixir for her "Style Sessions" series!
