I'm all about texture when it comes to creating outfits, but in the summer it can be a lot more difficult to achieve (especially when it's been over 30 degrees every day!). Here I did faux leather shorts and a crochet top - this allows breathing room and adds the dimension I'm looking for in an outfit.
**Important note: if you're going to do a leather short in the summer, ensure it's lined - I cannot stress this enough - you don't want the shorts sticking to your rear as you stand up from a lunch date - that's got disaster all over it!**
