Band Practice: split-sleeve floral blouse, vegan leather leggings, moto vest, and platform booties

When it comes to colour, it probably doesn’t get much more feminine and pretty than pink…and yet pink hair – especially vibrant pink hair – has a decidedly edgy vibe, don’t you think??

And that edginess has definitely been influencing my outfit combinations lately!!  My regular readers (that’s you, right?) know that I adore adding a little rockerish flavour to most of my ensembles as it is…but my fuchsia ‘do is inspiring some serious “I’m with the band” feelings right now!!

Take this leather-on-leather look I’ve got going on today.  Usually I try for a bit more contrast in texture…but because the motorcycle vest and leggings are different colours, I was happy to include them both.  Plus there’s the moody floral pattern of my new blouse…which creates a kind of texture, too.  And isn’t that split-sleeve detail so cool??

I actually wasn’t all that sure about the blouse when Robin first pointed it out at Winners – tops are always my biggest shopping challenge – but now I’m obviously really glad it came home with me.  Thanks to my hubby and his sharp eye, I can finally say that I have a bonafide “collection” of shirts and sweaters to see me through the coming months!!

      Think this look could have been a contender for your recent "ladies who rock leather" feature, dearest Nicole?! 😉 😁
