DOUBLE VISION: LEATHER & POLKADOTS

Hello you!  I'm super glad that you stopped by the blog today because I have some awesome news to share with you! You know how every week on Wednesdays my friend Hanna and I participate in the Fatshion Faceoff with  the totes awesome Olivia, Mouna, and Mhairi?  Well, Hanna and I have been chatting for months about starting another challenge for just the two of us because we're such great friends and have so much fun together.  We chat all the time on text and Skype, send each other cool packages, and are pretty much the closest thing to a bff you can have without actually having met in person.  ;)

So, without further ado, I give you the very first installment of our new project, Double Vision! We're really excited about it, too, because we're leaving ourselves open to all kinds of different challenges (instead of the same items of clothing like the FF).  So, one week we might be using the same movie for outfit inspiration, the next we might find an outfit worn by a celebrity and do our own spin on it, etc etc.  Doesn't that sound like so much fun?  I'm really excited about it, and I hope you are too!  We'll be doing a DV post every weekend, so make sure you follow the blog via GFC, Bloglovin', and Twitter so you don't miss any posts.

Hanna picked our first Double Vision challenge this week, and she chose a leather skirt and polkadot heels.  We both are in LOVE with these heels and have been CRAZY about leather skirts for this coming fall season, so I was totally pumped that she picked them for us this week.  

To me, polkadots are more summery and leather is more fall/winter, so I decided to style mine together as a sort of how-to on transitioning from summer to fall.  I think the sparkle and peter-pan collar of the shirt girlies up the skirt while also tying in the navy/white shoes.  I really love the resulting outfit, and it was perfectly light but edgy for an almost-fall day!  :)  

So, are you as excited as I am about the new DV feature here on the blog?  You definitely have to check out Hanna's blog, The Wardrobe Challenge to see how she paired up her leather skirt and polkadot heels!  She looks amazing, and you can check out her post HERE.  :D
