After five years of living in Seattle, I’m finally adjusting to the idea of warmer winters, and realizing I don’t need to be as bundled up as I would be in Connecticut. Normally this time of year, I’d be stocking up on chunky, knit sweaters, but this season, I find myself gravitating towards skirts. This faux leather skirt caught my eye a month ago online, and after seeing it in store, I had to have it. The pleated style gives the skirt a fun, flirty feel, and the faux leather is the perfect material for fall and winter!
I paired the skirt with a casual wool sweater, tights, and comfy booties (which are under $100), but plan on dressing this up for the holiday season with heels and a blouse. Right now, the weather is still in the high 50’s, but as it cools down, a pair of over the knee boots and thick tights will keep this look wearable all winter long. This skirt is the perfect length (even for a tall 5’9″ girl), and it is quickly becoming a staple in my wardrobe!
