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.
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!
