It’s all about balance

This week’s look is all about balance. I have a couple items in faux leather and I love them all. But sometimes it almost feels I need to take a double personality if I want to wear my faux leather biker jacket and nail my outfit. I feel faux leather is a bit ‘aggressive’. Meaning it’s all about personality and attitude, being fearless and confident. uhh… But who’s that girl? Not me. I’m the romantic kind, I like to dream and I love puffy dresses. So how can I nail a faux leather look while keeping true to myself? It’s not that hard. Just balance it out. Here I’m adding this white romantic top, with ruffles and embroidered dots. I’m also wearing these super chic flats I have for years, and a glitter clutch. Also the details on the faux leather skirt already define this look as something more romantic than other skirts would do. I really love the end result and I would be really happy to wear this outfit for a date. What do you think?



P.s. I’m still in the US, and this is the reason why posts have been so delayed. Sorry about that, I’ll try to catch up. If you would like to follow a little bit of the adventures just check my social media channels @thepetitecat on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook!
