For the last year or so I have been majorly obsessed with an adorable pale pink vinyl mini skirt from Topshop. I apparently fell in love with the skirt at the same time as the rest of the world had because no matter how hard I searched, My dream skirt remained every shopaholics worst nightmare sold out . Not willing to accept defeat I decided to buy the same skirt in my signature color... black. A year later while I still love the dainty color of the pale pink skirt that still evades me I am reminded often of what an incredible purchase my black mini has been. Its a more daring take on a regular leather mini skirt but don't let that scare you as you see in my outfit below its totally wearable day or night ! While yes this is a hot skirt,all you really need is a white tee and some strappy heels to be ready for a night out, this is also a really versatile piece when styled correctly. If you read last blog you'll remember me mentioning how the style of shoe can completely change an outfits overall tone this is the prime example . Yes this outfit would also look great with some heeled booties but I dig the loafers and socks instead it brings the showy skirt down to earth. With the addition of the floppy hat and the comfy Tartan button down the skirt kind of blends into the background adding just a hint of sex but nothing over the top for the daytime. This is the perfect outfit for a brunch date or for a fall festival. Before you check out the photos I have to thank Aurora Adachi-Winter the actress/model based here in Chicago who was a dream to work with and photographer Jeff Delacruz who shot all the gorgeous back lit photos. Thanks again for stopping by enjoy the photos!
