Faux Leather Mini Skirt Re-Styled

To me, one of the most important aspects of building an intentional wardrobe is buying pieces that can be styled in a multitude of ways. For this very reason, you’ll often see me restyling favorite pieces in new ways–which brings us to today’s look.

I previously styled this pleated faux leather skirt here, here (actually one of my all-time favorite looks) and here. I love that [faux] leather can be office-appropriate, and I often wear this skirt to work. Today’s outfit is one that I wore just a few days ago. I liked the combination of the dusty pink, soft and feminine blouse paired with the edgier vibe on the leather mini skirt.

As an aside, I am wearing the petite version of this skirt (size 00). I had originally tried the regular sizing in store; the added length is nice even on petite frames if you prefer a more conservative length. For me, though, even the petite sizing was long enough and looked more flattering overall.

We have had such beautiful weather this week; I can barely believe it. It was over 70 degrees the day I wore this look–in November. I hope that is a sign of what’s to come this winter!

Anyway, the weekend is forecasted to be just as beautiful. I’ll be taking my Christmas family portraits on Saturday, and just about anything holiday-related gets me all sorts of giddy, which means I’m really excited for the weekend. I may or may not have started listening to Christmas music already…

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Thank you so much for stopping by to read!

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
