So, I have a thing for leather clothing. I always have, and am always cised when it comes back in fashion. In the late '90s, my uniform was a pair of leather jeans with a fitted v-neck or turtleneck sweater and I still have all my size 10 leather pants waiting for if I ever return to that size. I search eBay for reasonably-priced leather pieces and have wanted a long black leather skirt for years; when I saw this one selling for under $50 I had to get it. You can tell by the snaps on the bottom and the fly that it's not a modern skirt, but I don't care. It's big, soft, and has ginormous pockets. I feel like a cowgirl in it, and want to pair it with a pair of sturdy boots, a hat, and a bandanna around my neck. I feel as though I would be protected from the elements, could hop on a horse, and even hide things under here. Most flattering skirt I have ever owned? Nah, but it's surely one of the most fun!

In 2013 I did fewer outfit posts, but they were more true to my personal style than the year prior. In trying to simplify blogging, I decided to dress for life instead of the blog, and take outfit posts when the stars aligned. It was a year of many early days at the office, and… Continue Reading Best of 2013: Outfits Edition
