Leather Lovin'




Whooo is SO excited that it's Friday, AND a long weekend?!

Yes, yes, yes!

Oh, and did I mention that we're finally going to get some good weather too? #MajorBonus

What is everyone up to this weekend?

Cottages? Raptors games? Victoria Day parties? Lol, is that a thing?

As for me, just plain and simple relaxation. A great weekend, is when you have nothing planned, and things just pop up here and there, with no obligation to actually attend. 

When the weather is good, I really just enjoy a good walk in the park. I don't want to go and call it a 'hike'. I'm not your typical 'hiker,' but I do love really, reallly long walks on a trail of some sort, possibly a little picnic, (whad up egg-salad sandwiches) and catching a little tan, even?

Yes, I'm 80 years old, and proud. :)






Quiet weekends are more my thing these day. 

How about you guys? What's your ideal weekend? Are you more of a stay-in with wine and some jazz music kinda person, or let's crash a party, line up the tequila shots kinda person?

I mean, both sound fun. I just prefer the wine scenario these days. Again, I'm 80 though. 





K, but let's talk about this outfit for a second. 

I mean, this faux leather skirt is kinda what I want to live in this weekend. Can I just wear this outfit while drinking my wine at home? 

It's a great little transition outfit from Spring to Summer. The colour palette is still dark, which I totally love, but it still feels quite like a summer outfit. 

And we all know how much I love leopard print, so I'm not going to touch on that ;)

The length of this skirt is also perfect as it can be worn to work. Think, a really cute blouse, tucked in, hair in a bun, black classic pumps, and small studded earrings. YES!

Also, THE. SHOES. 

Leather peep-toes. I bought them on my travels to Australia, however you can definitely find similar looking shoes here. 

I was obsessed with peep-toe booties with a thick heel for a long time, and that was all I ever wanted. Haha. Now, as we all know, I'm more into flats these days. However, I do love these and they go SO well with this outfit. I couldn't resist!

Okay, lovlies!! That's all for now. 

Stay tuned, as there are LOTS of great new things coming to the blog. More shooting this weekend, of course, so don't forget to follow along on Snapchat. UN: kim-marquis. My Snapchatters always get a first look ;) 

+ If there are things you guys want to see on Snapchat, please don't hesitate to reach out. I can do more mini recipes, make up tutorials, beauty tips, etc. Just snap me what you want to see!

Have an amazing (long) weekend for those that get one!!

Xx, kim
