OOTD-Greys On A Sunny Day

Can a leather skirt be work approriate? Sometimes I ponder the question of appropriateness when I want to wear something that's in my closet normally relegated to the weekend-only pile. I'm certain my one pair of sweats will remain there and that one ruffled skirt that might have been a smidge too short, but I have to rebel every now and then and wear what I feel like wearing. I'm so bad, lol. My toe is right on the line, but I'll be keeping it on the right side.

Leather skirts in flirty shapes were the thing this season and I have to say I fell in love. The ultimate for me was a Diane von Furstenberg number seen here, but the price tag was way more than my budget would ever allowed. You tease, Diane!! After a mad hunt for a suitable substitute, I found none, but eventually saw this little gray number at H&M. A nice shape and price tag made it a winner although the non-leather aspect wasn't as great. No worries for me though, since I still think it's cute and makes me feel like a softer, more feminine version of a some kind biker chick ready to break the workplace dress code. Or so I like to pretend.

Do you think a leather skirt could work in a business-casual office?

  1. I think if you work in a creative environment, a leather skirt is fine. I love blue and grey together!

  2. I think a leather skirt is okay for the office if it looks sweet and feminine ... like the one you have on :) Your whole ensemble looks so pulled together! And I love your blue tights!

  3. @basiccravings-Unfortunately, I don't work in a creative environment which is why I feel like some things are kind of pushing the boundaries.

    @Lisa-thanks!! These tights are one of my faves because it has a pattern. Too bad it isn't noticeable.


Leave your thoughts after the beep....beep. I love to hear from you!
