Another recent addition to my leather collection is this white cut out leather top. It’s such a unique piece, slightly cropped with a high neck line and low cut back, and despite being leather the cut outs make it completely wearable for summer!

Barbados is one of those places you visit and never want to leave. The people are so beautiful, the local food is incredible and the island itself is paradise. DSC_0108 The water is actually this amazing.

I love the anchors on this bikini from VamastyleDSC_0023  And distressed denim shorts are a necessity (similar here, here & here)photo 4 The Cliff is currently holding the title of best restaurant on the Island, and it completely lives up to the hype! On top of being one of the most magical places I’ve ever seen, the food was also some of the best I’ve ever eaten.DSC_0282 Local art carved from coconuts.DCIM100GOPRODSC_0058photo 5 Hats were a must under the Bajan sun. This one’s by Ace Of Something and my top is State of Georgia.photo 1 We could not get enough of the flying fish, which is a staple in Barbados. These flying fish fajitas from Weiser’s Beach Bar were phenomenal .

Needless to say, a week in Barbados is not long enough, but it’s one hell of a way to kick off your honeymoon!

I’ve been working on building my leather collection so that it consists of beautiful, well made, staple pieces. Leather is such a great addition to your wardrobe. It’s a little more on the expensive side, but when you buy quality leather pieces you’ll have them for years, and if you’re like me, you’ll live in them year round.
