Feline Feet

All Black Everything

The Cut

I don’t spend much time on my hair, so I like the the low-maintenance aspect of this cut. Plus it’s perfect for spring and summer.

Cargo

This is an impromptu shoot of what I wore to work yesterday. There’s nothing “in the moment” about the look. It’s just something I put together for a day on the go. I think these go-to looks tell more about our personal style than the ones that are more thought out and “new”. Given that both my shirt and watch are from the men’s section, it’s safe to say that my go-to style is a mix of masculine and feminine.

Had this been a solid colored pencil skirt, this look would have still been perfectly fine. But it’s details like a neon side-stripe and an exposed zipper that elevate it to a whole new level.

Double Leather Look

I admit, a couple of years ago I would not have combined a leather-look skirt with a leather-look top, but leather was big for fall and judging from the spring 2013 collections, it won’t be leaving the scene any time soon. And since less is not more with this trend, I went for double. I chose similarly black sneakers to keep the whole look monochrome and casual – just the way I usually like it.
