Fall Transitions: Comfy Leather Luxe

I love, love, love clothes, but comfort level is also really important to me. When the darling Katharyn of the mobile boutique Kat's Closet reached out to me about sponsoring a few posts, I said yes please! I love supporting local ladies following their dreams, especially when they're in line with mine (fashion, fun, etc!). Cozy knitwear has always been a staple in my wardrobe, and this slouchy v-neck sweater from Kat's Closet is having a major moment in my life. I think the first few weeks I had it, I wore it about five times. It's soft and warm, but not too heavy. When I'm feeling a little sassy, I can pair it with a leather mini and just a bustier. For a more casual look, I've worn it off the shoulder with a black tank top underneath, skinny jeans, and black knee-high boots. 

I wear a lot of leather, but about 90% of it is second-hand, and it often gets all worn at the same time. I had been hunting for a pair of black leather, Western-style ankle booties for a while, and happened across these while thrifting. Jackpot! I love the pointed toe and sleek silhouette. They pair so well with this skirt Sarah of The Wicked Wallflower handed down to me last year!

We shot these images in Lafayette Square Park, which is a check-in point for the #STL66 campaign I'm a part of! Isn't it gorgeous?! I had no idea it was so pretty and had such a cute little pond. We had to fight off a bazillion other photographers that day, though!
