Two things I swore I was done buying both make an appearance in this top: faux leather and peplums. There are many versions of the leather peplum top out there but few offer short sleeves. The short sleeve is the detail I love the most because it lends itself well to one of Spring's top trends: warm weather leather. I won't need a jacket at the office allowing the top to stand alone. This top is the perfect partner to boyfriend jeans and my other bad habit, the printed skinny pant. I will say it again, F21 does a nice faux leather for the exceptional price.
Lately it seems I can't quit H&M. These leggings link to the UK site but I know they exist in-store for $34.95. What I appreciate about these leggings is they feel more like a pant and have more structure to them than other faux/vegan options that resemble garbage bags. They do run small and feel awkward to get on the first time but they look great. My only concern is that I will be Ross from Friends when he tried to wear leather pants and had a debacle from overheating. For transition weather, I would pair these leggings with a floral blouse and booties.
By adding these two items, I think I have officially run out of faux leather options to add to my collection. Let's be honest. This is probably not true.
I will keep you posted on the overheating situation.
