CapFABB Challenge: Leather

So I recently discovered CapFABB, a fashion/beauty network for DC bloggers. I think this is such a fantastic way to unite all the fashionable bloggers that live in our nation's capital because let's face it, DC is not known to be fashionable...yet. They recently posted their first challenge for fashion bloggers to come up with an outfit or a polyvore collage using leather. (Be sure to check out other bloggers joining in for the challenge!) Funny thing is, I bought these leather shorts just before they announced the challenge so I thought it would be fun to participate.

Leather shorts are a bit daring and if not paired correctly, it could look...hoochie and well, that's not the look I usually strive for. I wanted to keep the look chic with a bit of edge so I decided to pair it with my new leopard print blouse ($8!!) peeking through a sweater. It's just the right amount of leopard for this particular outfit with out it looking to overwhelming with the leather shorts. Add a pop of color and I'm ready to go. Hope you are having a great start to the week and happy first day of November. Thanks for stopping by:)
