Little Leather Dress

I found this awesome faux leather dress at Marshall's a few weeks ago for $50.00.  A little more than I would normally spend on just a random casual dress, but I figured I would take the plunge since leather is in for spring (and will be able to transition easily into that completely justifies it, right?). 

So full disclosure, this outfit was completely inspired by this post on Cupcakes and Cashmere.  I wasn't sure how else to wear the dress besides layering a sweater/blazer/shirt over it, but then I saw Emily's post and had the light bulb moment when I realized hey, I can put something under it!  No, I hadn't thought of that before.  Don't judge me. 

This skirt on is also really cute if you're not a jump-right-in-the-pool sort of person.  Although come to think of it...I always take my time getting in pools/cold bodies of water.  I mean, who likes that feeling of cold taking over your entire body?  Seriously.

Do you support the faux (or real, if that's your sort of thing) leather trend?  AND, the more important question...jump in or gradual approach to getting in bodies of water??  These are important things people.
