Blimey, it’s been a long time since I’ve done an outfit post!  The temperature here in NoCal has started to drop and the weather is feeling far more autumnal now, I think this week is the first week in about 5 months that I haven’t worn shorts!  However it’s not to cold to put the legs totally away….yes, don’t adjust your eyes it’s me in a skirt!!

The lovely Mel at Woodie & Morris posted a picture of a pleated black skirt on Instagram ages ago and that skirt landed in store a couple of weeks ago and I had to have it!  Within 4 days the skirt had made its way from Haslemere, Surrey in the UK to me in California, so much quicker than ordering from JCrew here in the US.

Sweater – Bella Freud
Sneakers – Golden Goose
Clutch – Stella McCartney

This skirt is pleated, calf length and sits on the waist, it’s not proper heavy, faux leather, but it’s a light shiny leather look polyester material that just flows as you move.  It’s the sort of skirt you can chuck in your suitcase and wear with tees/sweatshirts and sneakers, dress up with heels and a cami or cosy up with ankle boots and chunky knits, it’s just so versatile.

I always find black never really pictures that well but I hope you can see some of the detail of the pleats and material in these pictures, hence me acting a little random in the pictures, hey it’s fashion, it’s fun!

I’m planning on wearing mine with tees and bomber jackets throughout winter if it stays mild, but here I am wearing it with a Blonde sweater from Bella Freud.  First outing for this jumper, which I bagged for abut £80 in the sale earlier this year.  This is a rare outfit for me, I’m wearing a skirt and white, you all know I have a major fear of white!
