Luxe Silk and Leather

Leather and silk

Right now my home is Gold Coast, Australia. A great city with sun and surf but not much of a “city” life. The summer staples are shorts, swimsuit and flip flops (thongs). Some days I love this look but others I want to dress in great fabrics such as leather and silk and feel like I’m in a city. My favorite cities are Chicago, NYC and London. Right now I am itching to travel again as being home for several months is just not what I’m used to. I’m used to living in my suitcase and moving city to city for work. I’ve been doing it for over 12 years so its hard to sit still. And what I have discovered is that I want my cake and eat it too! I want the beach life but also the city life.

So when I can, I like to feel like I’m in the city. For some reason I feel cool when I’m wearing some leather. I found these leather shorts on a recent work trip to Sydney and wanted to match it with something a little more delicate. I love button downs on everyone else but me. I think its the short hair that makes me feel a little like a boy with a crisp shirt. So I was very happy to find this silk shirt that I think works great with the shorts and has a feminine touch. I can’t wait for the weather to cool down a little as I have some great sweaters that I will be pulling out (from storage) and mixing with my leather pieces.
