Summer Days. Leather in the Park.

Summertime, and the living is easy…
Ah summer, how I’d missed you! I was growing tired of tights, and layer upon layer, upon layer of clothing! I’ve been ready to bear my limbs (especially my legs) for a long time already! I decided to welcome the new season with a floral print blouse- reminds me a bit of this Hawaiian chic shirt. I headed in a hot summer day to Central Park to shoot this outfit with José. Funny enough, we had already shot a look here a couple of years ago, and by coincidence, I was also wearing a leather skirt!
And speaking of leather skirts, I’ve been adding a few to my collection in the past year. This one I got during Black Friday, for about $20. Talk about a great buy! I wore it A LOT this past winter and it always got me a ton of compliments. This is the first time I’ve worn it without tights and I have to admit, I think is a little short. Maybe I’m just not used to having bare legs yet, but I was feeling kinda self-conscious. But I guess, how we say in Venezuela: “Lo que no se muestra, no se vende.” Which roughly translates into: “What you don’t show, you don’t sell.” Or in other words: “If you got it, flaunt it!”
Let the leg-bearing season officially begin! If you want some tips on getting your legs ready for summer, check this out.
