Blue Kisses

Found these leather shorts at Kiliwatch back when I was in Paris and although they're surprisingly comfortable, I warn you, do not wear anything leather in ninety-degree weather. 

Wearing vintage leather shorts, striped tunic from Zara, and blue bow tie satin clutch from Forever 21

Love your shoes and shorts! Also I love how the blue pops. And I'll have to keep that in mind when I go to LA for college next year.. I do have a thing for leather.

thefatandskinnyonfashion said...

i love this outfit. it is so cute. and yeah wearing any type of leather beyond a shoe and a purse in 90 degree weather is going to be killer.

bows.wine.sam said...

Wish you could be my stylist...think about it si? Haha I kid I kid but love everything about your blog!

Lori said...

that would be amazing if you did a closet post! imo you have the best style out of all the bloggers

Delmy said...

At least you looked good. Fashion conquers all...lol!

mikaela said...

that is such an adorable outfit!

haha and i know what you mean about the leather.

i want those shoes :)

Erica said...

I love the clutch!
I once made the mistake of wearing knee high leather boots when it was really hot and humid out...worst decision EVER.

syd vicious said...

Awesome outfit! That blue is so vibrant.

E said...

That button down is so unexpected with the shorts - I always appreciate your daring approaches towards ensembles!

Ashley said...

Cute shorts! Hahah and I'll take your advice on the no leather when it's in the 90s. Btw, look at your legs! Work it!

NICOLE said...

i love this outfit. a simple outfit composed of extradinary peices. plus that cobalt clutch is soo cute

Hadley said...

SAMUEL OLIVER said...

Karla, you are SO inspirational. :)
and I was wondering, did you draw that picture of you on the left side of your page above all the 'previous posts' thing? its amazing.

gabby paulina said...

love the blouse and the shoes. cute colours :)

Anonymous said...

I usually love your outfits, but these proportions are all wrong. It would look better with either more fitted shorts or a more fitted top--both of them being so voluminous just doesn't work.

Cypriotchick said...

simple chic i just adore this outfit especially the shorts

i love the nail color with the blue clutch- perfect contrast :)

Marianne said...

The red nails and the blue clutch look so great together!

Amy Ross said...

Woow! This Outfit is amazing! I love how you have combined your cute leather shorts with the blue clutch. It matches perfectly. & the hairstyle completes it all!

K said...

you look lovely. re: looking for an alternative to jean shorts, i could imagine you doing "dress" shorts very well.

McKenna said...

"Do not wear anything leather in ninety-degree weather." LOL, that rhymes!

"I love your cute clutch,
it gives a blue touch!"

That rhymes too!

McKenna said...

Oh, and I know it's a little late on the comment train, but Karla didn't draw the pic over the previous posts on the left, it was by an artist named Danny Roberts. He has a art-blog called "Igor+Andre", just to let SAMUEL OLIVER know. :)

Snow White said...

I love the shoes.
Black and blue always go so well together, don't you agree?

Ola said...

What I like about you Karla is that your so feminine. I love how your hair is boyish, but so soft at the same time. I look to your blog more than those other blogs because your edge is different.

Love,
Ola.

Sanna said...

wow, chapeau, this outfit is fantastic! love how the shorts accentuate your small waist. So does the top with your small boned upper body. and the heels - perfect. must be one of my favs so far.

Anika said...

I've been obsessed over finding the perfect leather shorts (much like yours) recently and only just resorted to buying a vintage pair of trousers to cut up.

Love the outfit with that delicate contrasting blouse and the pop of blue!

Have a lovely weekend

Niviarsiaq said...

you look amazing! I am really loving this heat we are getting! (I'm a total summer baby) You rock those shorts! I can imagine how hot they would be though! I attempted to wear boots and that didn;t go so well...
your bag is so vibrant I love it!

oh by the way, I found a couple websites where you can buy stripper shoes if you're interested, I always like to poke around and see if they have anything particularly amazing-

Yeah leather can be sticky - although in England its still cold and rainy in May so I would still need tights!
Another great style Karla, as always.

Hawa said...

honestly i have no idea why some people decide to be insensitive and cruel. whats even more ridiculous is that the envy, jealousy or whatever insecurities there are that makes people say things like you have fat arms or you are trying to copy rihanna blah blah is soooo apparent! sorry just had to vent!

Nika said...

GREAT clutch!

Anonymous said...

you look amazing! i've wanted leather shorts for quite a while and have yet to find one...and you are totally gorgeous in the seconcd pic.

Anonymous said...

i can't get over how you were high heels all the time, especially in the day. In London that just doesn't happen, its considered o.t.t to wear heels in the day
you're so lucky to live where you do

plastiqgurl said...

u have so many clothes i think you can start your own boutique! i've been following your blog for a while and i don't remember seeing a repeat of clothing!

Chloe said...

hehehe your nails' colour .. orange/red? hehehe i love it! I have borrowed (stoled) look alike colour from my sister, it didn't work well for me (my skin), so i gave her back without her knowing it (that i took it from the first place) :D but i really do like the colour!

You look so fab! You make shorts and a simple shirt look so achingly chic;

LOVE that satin clutch; my favorite part about it is that it DOESNT look like F21; but a thousand bucks or something; it's so pretty:D

lily said...

Is that a birthmark on your leg? I have one there just like that : ) Or is it a bruise? ha people always think my weird mark is a bruise.

Celine said...

Love the shorts, can totally relate to the heat thing though... it's been over 100 here in AZ.
What nail color are you wearing? It's mind blowing!

The Stylist said...

I love leather but agree on the heat. Ever see that episode of Friends when Ross wears leather pants? The balance of your black leather shorts and that wonderful blouse is impeccable.
