Outfit post: Biker meets sailor

Skirt, belt and booties: Forever 21, Top: We the Free, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Necklace and bangle: Fornash via the District Sample Sale, Hex nut bracelet: Made by me, Watch: Vernier via Loehmann's

I thought about combining this outfit post with my recap of the CapFABB meetup, but ultimately felt it deserved its own day in the sun!

I have to say, this look was a little daring for me. If you know me, you'll know that I'm not necessarily predisposed to things that scream "livin' on the edge." And this faux leather skirt is kinda dangerous - sort of bad-A, if you will.

But I've really been trying to experiment lately, push my boundaries and think outside the sartorial box that we can sometimes put ourselves in - and I'm so happy I did! Since it was a beautiful fall day I could wear the skirt without tights, but can't wait to create other looks with it once the cold weather really sets in. I'm thinking a cozy sweater and wedge booties!

Thoughts? How would you style this skirt?

  1. I really like this look, classic with a touch of toughness! That skirt can do so many things, with a shrunken blazer, get all fierce with a cashmere turtleneck, tights and pointy heels... lots of options!

  2. Love the pleated skirt


  3. And it totally works! Great leather skirt! :D
