Pleather Skirt

Well, I knew it would be sooner rather than later that I dedicated a post to some faux leather that lives in my closet. I'm not going to lie, I was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Sydney, over at Summer Wind, who posted this outfit a few weeks ago. I wear my (p)leather skirt all the time once the colder weather rolls around, so when I saw this outfit inspo and realized I had everything in my closet already, I tried it practically the next day. Cashmere and leather? Sold. 

This is a great outfit to wear flats with at work and then throw on some heels for happy hour (I'll pretend like that's what I did, but really I took my shoes off and bummed a homemade meal off my parents after work...)

The wind was out of control while I was taking these photos, so I apologize for the lack of flattering shots. There's a high possibility someone got a little show during this photoshoot, if you know what I mean. I'm also so mad I forgot to take my hair band off my wrist for these, so please disregard :)

In other news, I spent the weekend relaxing, spending time with friends and watching my friend kick butt in her first marathon, but missed all the Columbus Day sales! My bank account thanks me, but I'm going to have to take advantage of some of these "extended sales". Did anyone find anything good?!

  9. What a nice post, thanks! Have you ever used a bra tape? I think for such dresses http://byebra.com breast stickers suits the most because this Dutch brand has been known to bring high quality breast shapers. Do you have issues if you wear a strapless dress?
