Denim + Leather


Skirt: Forever21, Top: J.Crew Factory, Shoes: Nine West via TJ Maxx, Bag: Marshalls, Necklace: J.Crew (not currently online but found in stores), Lips: MAC lipstick in Cyber

Happy Tuesday! We are expecting a day of beautiful weather here in Pittsburgh (almost 80 degrees!). With the warmer weather in mind, I am sharing a fall look that doesn’t require lots of layers.

A faux leather skirt is a little edgier than I would normally wear, but I am pairing it with a denim top to keep it in line with my personal style. I also like the idea of wearing it with a graphic tee and a flat sneaker, or a blouse and cardigan.

Keep in mind, this skirt could very easily cross over from ladylike to trashy if you’re not careful. I would not pair a skirt this short with a tank or super high heel. My general rule of thumb is: if you’re showing skin on one half, keep the other half covered.

Also, I want to mention that a piece like a leather or faux leather mini skirt is not one I would personally invest a lot of money in. Stores like Forever21 and H&M are great for finding trendy pieces like this one, without breaking the bank. For under $20, you can try out the trend and not feel guilty.

For those of you in Pittsburgh, enjoy the sunny Tuesday! Thanks for reading!


(and a very happy birthday to my girl, Risky!)

  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.
What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
