What I Wore: Plaid and Leather

8:34 AM

Leather skirt seem to be perfect for low "even" temperatures, and we got our share this week. Today I decided to pair my faux leather skirt with my plaid shirt, and super comfortable black sandals. I added the sweater to give this outfit a preppy look. By the way, yesterday was my birthday and for the first time ever, it was a quiet one. Still don't know how I feel about that yet. Hopefully next year birthday will have a lot more excitement. Happy hump day everyone, and as always thanks for the lovely comments.

So daylight savings is this weekend, and for some reason I thought the clock was going ahead but that is not the case. For us Floridians, it’s turn back. So I should be perfectly fine with taking pictures in the morning! In fact, I'm dragging my little one back from her break :).












Outfit Consist of Plaid Shirt (AliExpress) | Faux Leather Skirt (AliExpress) | Sweater (Forever 21) | Peep Toe Sandals (Macy's)

Recreate This Look
My makeup consist of what I consider my essentials, blush is M•A•C Raizin Matte Blush, and my lip color is Viva Glam VI outline with Chestnut, and prep with the EOS Lip Balm.

  10. happy belated birthday dear! I've had quite a few calm birthdays and I never mind them:) sometimes it is party time and sometimes it's not...it all depends...

    I think that plaid and leather are meant to be together...they both have sth a bit edgy (slightly grunge) about them...lovely shirt and skirt...love the shoes too!

  15. You are well on trend this season: plaid and leather skirt! I am so enticed for a plaid shirt and a leather skirt, preferably faux leather as I am an animal rights advocate. Do you know anything about faux leather pencil skirt? Since it is supposed to be tight on body, does it breath right?

    Happy Birthday Kreyola! Wish you a joyful, successful and prosperous year to come!

    1. The thing about leather is that if you are in a hot and humidity environment, it can get sticky and hot. Since this skirt has liner, it was fine, and if your pencil skirt has it, it should be fine as far as breathable department is concern.

  16. Hi honey, I love the shirt, I love the skirt..........actually I love the complete outfit, the shoes are stunning. About your question I take my pics at nite, mostly when my bf and I are on our way to some places, when I get home after work it's getting dark, and there's no chance of taking pics in the morning, though. Yeah clock is turning back this weekend here too. Looking for some mixing print ideas, are you ;)

  19. I love your faux leather skirt! I had one too but I had to give it away because it wasn't getting that much wear (every time I sat down, it wrinkled!) Do you have the same problem?

    1. It does wrinkle, but it seem to smooth out afterward a while...it didn't stay that way.
