What I Wore - Silk & Leather

Now I know why most fashion bloggers look down in their photos - it's infinitely awkward getting outfit photos taken. Or maybe just I am infinitely awkward... 

Anyway, outfit was worn and photos were taken!! 
Let's start off with me trying to answer an imaginary telephone, shall we?


Hello? It's me, Sandra, I don't know what I'm doing. I should probably look down.


Both these pieces were sale finds from this last week. Faux leather shorts from H&M - super comfortable, black AND they have pockets (my favourite!). Found very similar ones online click here.

I like the juxtaposition of leather-like textures with more feminine silk/chiffon blouses. The blouse in question is by ASTR, which is exclusive to Nordstrom from what I understand. They have a collection of cool, well-made blouses that don't break the bank.



Rose gold sandals by B Brian Atwood (similar ones here) to finish off the look.

I'm still obsessed with rose gold and I don't care who knows it.

Hope your week is a great one!

  5. Let me start off by saying... legs eleven! I like the juxtaposition of leather or leather look items and silk too. Black and white is so classic too. I have the same issues with taking photos of myself too. I think to myself is this narcissistic? Probably. But you don't look as awkward as maybe you feel. You look great Sandra.

  8. I love this outfit so so much! Those sandals are amazing. I want them!

    I know what you mean about having your photo taken for your blog....I just feel so awkward! You look great though, they look a lot better than mine! ha!

    Loving your new posts at the moment, you have great style so it makes sense to do some OOTD's

    Hope you're having a good weekend!
