A Little Bit of Edge

Clothes have been on my mind lately. I plan on doing a bit of shopping these next few weekends so I’ve been brainstorming outfits and ensembles that I could wear to work/everyday. New church clothes need to be purchased as well but, perhaps that’s a different post for a different day. So, today I put together an outfit that’s “me” and I’m linking up with {av} for Friday’s Fancies!

Some days I like a little bit of “edge” in my outfits, without being over-the-top-total-biker-chick. Because, well… that’s NOT me.

A Little Bit of Edge

 
I have a love for bomber/moto jackets {faux leather} similar to the one I’ve used in the outfit above. I adore that burnt orange color!
I paired it with some destroyed denim jeans and mustard, leopard print heels to add some additional “pop” and “spunk.” I like my spunk!
To continue with the edgy theme, I chose some garnished, dirty gold jewelry with a lot of fun texture.
I added the deep brown clutch as a finishing touch!
 
As some of you may know, I’m an accessory girl. I often plan my outfit around which necklace or bracelets I want to wear. I definitely believe in accessorizing and you’ll hardly ever find me “keeping it simple.” :) Big jewelry is the way I like to go! You might also be noticing my color schemes that I often like to wear! I’m pretty picky.

This is an outfit I’d see myself getting a lot of wear out of. Everything can be mixed and matched and worn with difference pieces which is always good.
 
So, who knows… maybe I’ll find similar heels this weekend? Who wants to bet I end up buying jewelry? Just sayin’… :) Have an amazing weekend, friends!!

I agree with adding a little edge without being biker chic! One of my favorite outfit combos is a floral print shirt with my leather jacket! I think it looks girly but not too girly, edgy but not too edgy! Super cute outfit combo! :)
Hope you have a fun weekend!
