Hello! ♥ 

I've had this leather skirt for a year now and have yet to wear it. Leather is one fabric that is a daunting for me to wear, not because it really makes me uncomfortable, but rather it makes others uncomfortable, I feel? Whenever I wear leather in public, I've noticed people have the tendency to stare and kind of gawk at the garment and I haven't a clue why. It's like any other cotton, linen, or wool...But for whatever reason I feel like leather draws a lot of attention to itself, and I myself don't like a lot of attention, so I usually skip out on wearing it. I am glad though that I finally decided to stop being shy and worried about what other people are thinking of the fabric of this silly skirt, and just embrace it in an outfit that makes me feel confident!

It's going to be a good weekend with my family that I can't wait for. I'm going on a few out of town trips just around various cities in Ohio to do some exploring with them. I just love that family is always there for you no matter what. No matter how silly, weird, sad, angry, or anything you may be at a given moment....family will accept you for who you are and embrace it. I'm so lucky to have a family like mine. x

With much love, Lauren.

I really like my leather skirts but I don't wear them as often as I'd like. The thought of wearing leather when it's 100% humidity and 95 degrees out makes me uncomfortable. I may brave it just so I can look as cool as you though! I love how yours looks with the striped crop top.

I must admit I don't like leather garments unless they're shoes. Don't know why, but aesthetically, they don't please me. I wouldn't gawk at someone but definitely couldn't wear it, just seems a but creeky and inflexible. Correct me if I'm wrong x

I think this outfit is top notch! Loved it when I saw it on your insta. Love it here!

Maybe it is the biker tie-in and some people are scared of bikers? I don't get it either. I have always loved the look of leather garments but I am a pescatarian and I tend to shy away from clothing and shoes made from leather.

I've never owned a leather something, so I've never noticed that attitude among people--but I wonder why they act that way? I love this outfit--it's simple, but that's what makes it so beautiful!

Leather is a little more sexy I guess and draws attention. Day trips are always a blast have fun with your family !
