BLACK AND NAVY / 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target skirt and leather everywhere

I am a day late but did you guys have a nice weekend?  For a reason unknown to me, I always sleep early on the weekends (around 1am) as oppose to a workday (closer to 3am...) and I usually get to sleep through the morning if I remember to turn my phone to vibrate.  It's a great feeling.  I hope you had an equally relaxing weekend.

As mentioned a few entries ago, my dear friend Kim alerted me throughout the night (thank you so much Kim!!) of the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target release online.  I was too busy clicking away and making sure I snag a handbag (or two... ok, maybe three) and the navy and leopard circle skirt that I completely missed some of the other items in the collection.  The most notable piece that I kept going back to hoping that it would magically pop in stock is the navy/black dress with faux leather.  Unfortunately it never came back in stock but I turned my frown upside down and used it as inspiration for this outfit.  Inspired by that dress it made sense to pair the navy skirt from the collection with leather, leather, and even more leather - leather everywhere!

I've been searching on Pinterest for all the ways everyone has styled their 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target pieces and some favorites are Kate from The FancyPants Report and her leopard pullover with a beautiful printed blue skirt, Sarah from The Weekend Diary styling the floral blouse with a quilted leather (!!) skirt, and Ciaa from My Curves & Curls looking absolutely fierce in the leopard dress.  I'll be doing more pinning this week but if there's any outfits you've seen that you enjoyed, please share =D.

Off to bed I go as I have to get up a tad bit earlier to add some finishing touches to a presentation I have to give in a few hours.  I hope you have a wonderful day, take care!
