Blue and Green for Spring: How to Wear Leather in the Spring and Summer

GingerSnaps Blue and Green Leather in Spring 2

Today, I’m sharing another of my favorite Blue and Green looks, perfect for the cooler Spring/Summer temperatures we having up here in the Northeast.  While you can’t control the weather, you can usher in Summer by choosing to wear bright colors. As you may already know, I LOVE colorful leathers all year ’round, especially in the Spring and Summer.  While this week is all about the Blue and Green color combinations, HERE is another way I have worn this skirt with a bikini top!

In todays Blue and Green for Spring OOTD, the bright, bold shade of blue in the leather skirt stands up fantastically to the equally bold, energetic pattern of my vintage silk blouse.  To join the pieces together, I tied a patterned scarf from Forever 21 around my waist as a belt.  I love the ethnic feel that the scarves fringe gives this look; it’s the combination of accessories that make this outfit special.  I love the bright royal blue of the tilt hat along side the royal purple of my Dior handbag.  The shoes are a favorite by Sam Edelman– I cannot express enough how surprisingly comfortable they are!  Despite the height of the heel, I could run around in them all day long.  The navy tassel earrings are a cheapie from Forever 21, but the REAL show stopper of the accessories is my GORGEOUS handmade bracelet by Zaafar Jewelry.  My very dear friend Saadia is the designer behind Zaafar.  Each piece is hand-crafted by an artisan in Pakistan.  She was kind enough to allow me to shoot some of my favorite pieces last Spring; they are truly works of art! To purchase your won piece, you can check out her full collection of ZAAFAR JEWELRY HERE.
