Outfit: Flannel Shirt, Maroon Leather Skirt, Thigh High Socks, and Black Loafers

This was the outfit I wore to the New Pornographers concert earlier this month. I bought this maroon leather skirt at Forever 21 with a gift card from my birthday. I didn't realize just how short it was until I saw these pictures! I mean, I felt a slight breeze on my butt walking to the venue but I just assumed it was the normal kind of short skirt breeziness. My nether-regions remained covered all evening but I think this is a must-wear-with-tights kind of skirt from now on. Nevertheless, I loved how this outfit turned out. I enjoy the over-the-knee socks look that other bloggers rock so I figured it was time to pull mine out again. Plus this flannel shirt looks good with just about everything and it kept me perfectly warm while out and about in Atlanta.

The concert was absolutely amazing. The New Pornographers is one of my absolute top favorite bands and this was the second time I'd seen them. They encored three times and played "Sing Me Spanish Techno" for their last song. I was hoping with all my might that they'd play it and finally they did! I knew every song. They broke out "Testament to Youth in Verse" among many other tunes spanning most of their albums. They do a great job playing a mix of old and new. I loved it. Can you tell?

I thought this was a very autumnal outfit to share for Thanksgiving week. I'm spending the week with my family at home and plan on eating my fill tomorrow. We never go out of town for the holiday and I like that. It's nice to stay around town. Someday that might be different, but not yet! Do you have any fun Thanksgiving plans? 

If I don't blog tomorrow, have a great holiday US readers! Happy Wednesday!

Remix: Leather Pleated Skater Skirt

I bought this faux leather skirt from Forever 21 right before summer 2013 and it's been just as versatile for the summer months as the cold ones. The flared shape keeps it from being overly toasty when it's 90+ degrees outside but it's faux leather so it's plenty warm when it's cold outside. I have a leather pencil skirt too but I get more use out of this pleated one. It's just so easy to throw on in place of a regular black skirt. It would definitely work with an edgier look but I tend to dress it up like any other black skater skirt. It adds a cool texture to any outfit!  

This kind of skirt is actually completely on trend. You can find a bunch of them in stores right now for very little money. A piece like this could easily become a staple in a wardrobe as a replacement for a black skater skirt. What do you think? Have you picked up any leather or faux leather pieces recently? Would you wear a leather skirt?

Outfit: Burgundy Leather Jacket and a Crushed Velvet Top Layered Over a Leopard Print Dress

I picked up this crushed velvet crop top from Forever 21 a few weeks ago with a birthday gift card. I couldn't resist its delightful crushed velvety-ness! I actually had a dress in almost this exact same fabric but it was way too large in the shoulders and bust so I gave it to my sister. This crop top fits perfectly though! For its debut I layered it over a leopard print high-low dress I got at Target a couple years ago. Layering crop tops over dresses is a great way to remix your dresses without adding a lot of bulk. This was kind of a perfect way to make this dress work for fall since it has spaghetti straps. I added my burgundy leather jacket for extra warmth even though I wore this before that big cold front blew down here.

I just realized that this is the third outfit post in a row featuring leopard print. I'm sorry for leopard overload! I promise I don't wear it every day. These just happen to be the outfits I got pictures of recently.

So how has your week been? I can't believe it's already Friday! I have a busy weekend ahead with a birthday party for Dad today and a Georgia football game tomorrow. Then it's Thanksgiving week! So there'll be plenty of delicious food in the upcoming days. I'm pretty excited about that. 

Anyway, I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

October Favorites

It's already time for another monthly favorite outfit roundup! These always roll around so quickly. According to these favorites I've been really into leather jackets lately. I've been getting plenty of use out of my own black leather jacket since the weather finally cooled down. These outfits are all great inspiration for these up-and-down fall temperatures! I hope you enjoy this roundup and be sure to check out these blogs if you have a chance!

It's Not Her, It's Me and Midwest Muse both look fantastic in their black leather jackets paired with one colorful piece. I enjoy how these outfits let the colorful dress and skirt stand out.

A Walk In The Park has such a fun 60s vibe in her mini dress, mustard yellow tights, and vintage shoes. Styling Dutchman looks amazing in all black with a mix of textures.

What Olivia Did has the cutest swan print trousers and Style Story's all-black outfit is edgy and cool.

Rachel The Hat mixes prints perfectly with her comfy striped dress and plaid scarf. Selective Potential looks super cute with a flannel shirt layered over a white lace dress.
