Knit & Leather

ASOS burgundy sweater (similar)
Comme des Garçons Converse sneakers
Céline Phantom Cabas tote (similar)

We're like six months away from bare-legs weather but I'm looking forward to wearing this leather skirt with a slouchy white linen tee and casual slip-ons. Until then, I'll be hibernating in my sleeping bag puffer coat.

Anyway, I'm about to write the longest paragraph I've ever written about a leather skirt, so here goes. I've been wanting a leather skirt and have purchased a couple in the past that I've returned. Usually, the problem is the leather is too shiny or mini or long, but this A.L.C. one is just right, even with the touch of hardware. I like mixing textures like leather and knit for winter, and I also chose to dress it down this time with CDG x Chucks. You'll be seeing this skirt styled many different ways in the future!

  6. That's such a cute skirt! I totally understand what you're saying about leather skirts. I've been seeing them everywhere and wanting one of my own, but it's really hard to find one that looks great in person. I'm glad you found a leather skirt that you like, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how you style it in the future.

  8. I have dreams of my perfect leather skirt. I haven't found it yet, but there are a few I have my eye on. This one definitely looks perfect on you. And your sweater looks so cozy - I'm sitting in my poorly heated office as I type this, so sweaters seem particularly appealing right now ;)

  16. A leather skirt is a must! I think I have three black ones now, a short, mid length and one that comes to the mid calf, I wear them all year round, but love this look paired with those sneakers and tights.
    Six months! Phew, stay warm.
