#MyStyle: denim and leather – a match made in heaven

I’ve written a post on sugarmamma.tv on the 1o ways to wear a chambray shirt, and it inspired me to share my favourite way to wear it – with leather, specifically black leather.

Both denim and black leather have an edgy, rock and roll vibe to them and when worn together gives off a bit of an “I don’t give a damn” attitude.

What I do give a damn about though is making sure that leather doesn’t get stained/ruined/grubby from running around after the kiddos or being smeared with an unidentifiable substance, and as much as I love the look of real leather I chose to wear faux leather or “pleather” in this outfit. Faux leather actually looks pretty good these days – not as plasticky as it used to look –  and is a fantastic option for fashionable vegans. It’s also a fabulous option for stylish mummas as it is incredibly easy to clean (a good wipe and elbow grease usually does the trick).

Perhaps the black leather appeals to me because I do love a bit of rock and roll – my parents always had The Beatles and Roy Orbison playing on the stereo (as well as Abba, but you’ll never see me wearing flares) – and there isn’t a Foo Fighters song I don’t like. The length and A-line shape of the skirt however keep it from looking too rock and roll-y, and while I would love to wear it with these Jeffrey Campbell boots I kept it simple and feminine with a pair of leopard print flats.
