Until recently, the only time it has been acceptable to rock leather in South Dakota is during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Thankfully, this season is lending far more leverage to leather than full-on biker chick, and it just so happens to be one of my favorite trends that has transitioned from this winter into the spring lines.
I came across this skirt and immediately fell in love with it. Even though the A-line softens it up, I’m not going to lie, I felt a little bit like a rebel buying a (faux) leather skirt. But I decided it is the perfect transition piece. Nothing sucks more than buying your spring wardrobe while you longingly watch it hang in your closet until it’s finally warm enough to wear. And let’s face it, living in the Midwest means Mother Nature can be a little bipolar during the spring months. (Case in point–> We went form 70 degrees to feeling like -6 in one day last week.) And until I can save up enough money to retire in Florida, it looks like I’m stuck making sure my spring pieces can still be worn in negative temps.
As you can see below, I paired the skirt with a bulky sweater, tights and booties for a chilly day. And went with a lighter, more feminine blouse with black flats for warmer weather.
