Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

Topic of today's conversation? Leather skirts. If you told me three years ago that I'd be rocking one of those bad boys on my blog I would have said you were crazy. But today? I'm rocking a leather skirt with pride and I'm loving every second of it. I'm not a big fan of wearing leather in general and the last time I remember rocking some was when I had a burgundy leather jacket in middle school (apparently I thought I was a badass). But seeing how this one was made of vegan leather convinced me to give it another try.

My favorite part about the vegan leather skirt is definitely how soft and warm it is. I always imagined leather to embody the tough girl attitude but the fit of the skirt makes it somewhat romantic. Plus, in comparison to my flimsy cotton skirts, this guy can combat the winter winds perfectly.

If you're questioning my bare legs in the middle of January, I just wanted to inform the world that today is one of those days where Mother Nature says, "the hell with winter - let it be spring!" But then tomorrow Mother Nature will go back to conforming to the temperature standards. In the meantime, I'll enjoy her temporary PMS-ing and bask in the 55 degree weather. I hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday! :)

  9. You are so sassy in the first picture. I love it! I've been wanting a leather skirt for awhile now but haven't been able to jump on the bandwagon. You may have convinced me to take the plunge.

    Hope the rest of your week is stellar and just as warm!

  10. Jealous that it decided to be spring where you're at. Mother Nature is sticking to winter where I am. -_-
    Ah well, love how you made a leather skirt less tough and perfectly chic! So cute <3

    Just wondering, Jen, how tall are you?
