Black Leather & WHITE PIPED SILK with Tweed

Bon matin everyone! It's a lovely Sunday morning!!
Yesterday was the Farmer's Market here in Ann Arbor and there's nothing better than strolling over to a breakfast of fresh bread twists with chunks of olive in it and homemade peach/plum/apricot Jam! 
I opted for a Garlic Cheese Twist this time, actually.

The weather has been haywire recently. Brisk in the morning, then warm as the sun reaches it's peak and chilly again as the clouds start to move in before raining.
Personally, as long as the top half of my body is comfortable temperature-wise, I'm good to go, which is why I usually layer with a breezy shirt and a solid jacket/cardigan. (As a college student, that is definitely the most practical exam-taking dress code because you just never know what temperature of your test-taking room is going to be).

I chose to wear a flexible outfit. The silk top, which has a chic black piping detail down the center, kept me cool during the heat of the day while my pleated, leather skirt kept me warm when the wind kicked in. 
I must say, leather is quite warm and the pleats give direction and neatly polishes the outfit.

I'm very conscious of what shoes to wear when rain is forecasted because it can do major damage to leather and suede shoes.
These jelly flats were a great purchase for days that are half sunshine/half rain. They're like nude flats that match with almost everything and the added black bow+gold charm details made them that much more loveable.

To finish the outfit off, I threw on a simple navy blazer with sharp leather lapels and a beautiful tweed clutch with tassels and tarnished gold detailing.
Thank you for reading and I hope you have a great Sunday~
