Nighttime Leather Leggings

Today was not my day.  I got stuck in horrible traffic (due to an accident - I hope everyone was ok!) that kept me from going to my barre class because I was *so* late, and then on my drive home I was yelled at my some road rage guy because I pulled into his lane too slowly. Whatever. Clearly, my natural inclination was to get a cheeseburger and go home and watch the Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family. Then I went upstairs to my bedroom and decided to play dress up, which always puts me in a better mood :)

Top: Milly; Leggings: Club Monaco
This lace Milly top and my Club Monaco leather leggings were the perfect antidote to feeling crummy - I instantly felt glamorous and cool, even though I was just feeling bummed from getting yelled at! 

The almost leopard-print lace of the top meets the satin bodice in a sweetheart neckline - which I'm always such a sucker for. 

It also buttons up the side, which I think is such a cool, feminine and retro twist. 

Leggings: Club Monaco; Shoes: Joie
Given the girly-ness of the top, I toughened it up with my leather leggings and can't-live-without Joie booties. 

Earrings: Chanel
Finally, to add a pop of color, I wore these cute pink heart shaped Chanel earrings that my mom brought back from Europe for me when I was a teenager (I miss the days when there was a favorable exchange rate). I rarely get to wear them because I'm more of a stud-earring girl, but when you're wearing all black a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do :)
Hope you have a fun Saturday night out! 

Until next time,
